Pizza People Pub

I’m really bummed to see another local favorite closing it’s doors. Pizza People Pub has been operating out of this location across the Phoenix Public library since 2013. They have a great story of a family owned business starting out of a food truck and eventually opening their own restaurant. Their menu consists of their signature made-from-scratch 10 inch artisan pizzas and a variety of pub favorites like wings and their always popular mac & cheese. I always got a kick out of some of the pizza creations that they have (and the names) – Date Me, The Hulk, Testosteroni, Popeye, Fun Guy, The Hottie, etc. Even though I love their pizzas, I usually came here to try one of their many mac & cheeses. Some of my favorites have been the Smokey Paprika Mac, the Jalapeño Mac and the Truffle Mac. They load their mac & cheese with lots of cheese so they are nice and gooey. I wish they had a mac & cheese flight so I could sample them all. I stopped in tonight to have a last meal here before they close shop. I enjoyed hearing my bartender share stories of how much he enjoyed working here. It’s always sad to hear of local restaurants going out of business. I wish them the best.

  • – since I wrote this post, new owners have given Pizza People Pub a new lease on life and are keeping things the way that made Pizza People so popular. They will be re-opening in August!

Serious Slices

I checked out Jimmy & Joe’s Pizzeria recently with a group of friends before a concert. They are located in Chandler and have been around since 2006. They try to keep their menu simple by having a limited menu consisting of pizza, wings and salad. But they are serious about their slices. They have several pizza creations you can chose from and if you are serious about size, order their 24″ Big Jimmy size. We ordered the Popeye. This pizza creation has spinach, basil, garlic, feta, tomato and mozzarella. Jimmy & Joe’s also serves Eegee’s – a popular frozen drink chain from Tucson. Their other location is in the Mesa area.
