Austin’s Pizza—Somewhat of a Drag on the “Drag”

My baby’s back up in [Nashville] And I’m…Down On the Drag –With apologies to Butch Hancock The “Drag” is what Austinites call the stretch of Guadalupe Street that runs along the western edge of the UT campus. It is a place where students can fill their needs for school supplies and other life necessities. Before […]

Poppa Rollo’s Pizza in Waco, TX – What Was I Thinking?

My Texas business trip took me from the somewhat familiar confines of Austin to unfamiliar Waco, a town I have only driven through. Always looking for adventure and realizing that this may be the only time in my life I might ever be in Waco, I found a pizza joint to try. There really wasn’t […]

Cozzoli’s Pizza—Austin TX’s Sbarro Wanna-Be

After experiencing pizza heaven at Home Slice, I went to visit some sites of the old Austin I remembered when I lived in Texas 15 years ago. I took a stroll down Sixth Street and walked through the gorgeous Driskill Hotel.  I headed towards the Paramount Theatre, a place where I saw many Texas greats […]

Austin’s Home Slice Pizza – New York-Style Pizza Perfection in Texas

The Snob lived in San Antonio for 18 years before moving to Franklin. When people in Tennessee used to ask me what I missed most about San Antonio, I had a simple, one-word answer: Austin! It was a city Mrs. Pie and I loved to visit for music, food, shopping, and mostly for its great […]

Mt. Juliet TN’s NYNY Pie – Off the Beaten Path for Pizza Excellence

Not to be confused with West Nashville’s great NY Pie, there’s a place called NYNY Pie that has opened up in Mt. Juliet’s new giant outdoor shopping center. I was easily enticed by the name, but for the Snob, Mt. Juliet is no short hike from Frank-town. So, there it sat on my list waiting […]

Nashville’s Little Chicago—A Long Pizza Lunch I Won’t Repeat

A few weeks ago, my weekly pizza-loving lunch buds suggested we try Little Chicago, a new joint in a tiny shotgun space on the Demonbreun strip near Music Row. It faces south and sits between the Interstate and the Music Row Roundabout (the circle surrounding those awful naked statutes).  Several years ago, this city block […]

Franklin TN’s Wall Street Pizzeria—A New Issue on the Rise

Life as a Pizza Snob means that friends and family love to take you to new pizza places they have discovered. Such was the case recently when The Kid’s girlfriend’s family invited Ms. Pie and me to join them and our young ones for a Sunday lunch after church. The chosen place was the brand-spanking new […]

Two Boots Pizzeria – Nashville Welcomes Colorful Chain’s Incredible Pizza to Town

Two Boots Pizzeria’s name represents the geographical shapes of both Italy and Louisiana, a tribute to the founders’ love for both pizza and New Orleans. Two Boots Pizzeria Nashville is located on the triangle where 21st splits into Broadway and Division. They reside in a colorfully refurbished building previously occupied by The Great Escape, one […]

R.I.P.—Nashville’s DaVinci’s Gourmet Pizza

It embarrasses the Snob to admit that there was a time in his life when he was not involved in serious pizza eating.  This period of lost opportunity existed during my vegan years when my family and I stopped eating all meat and dairy. The dairy part eventually came to an end when I realized […]

Ray’s New York Pizza—A Swanky Slice in Atlanta’s Buckhead

Thanks to the wonders of Priceline, Ms. Pie and I can afford to spend our ATL getaway weekends in its upscale Buckhead area. Centered around the main thoroughfare of northern Peachtree Road, Buckhead boasts high-rise office buildings, classy hotels, fancy shopping and exquisite dining. On a previous visit, my better half stumbled on to Ray’s […]
