Birmingham’s Post Office Pies—Pizza Excellence in Alabama

You have got to admit that it is rather unusual to see a place in Alabama, or anywhere in the Deep South for that matter, regularly show up in lists of the best pizza spots in America. Well, after seeing Birmingham AL’s Post Office Pies show up several times now, it has been on the […]

Sa Za—Fine Italian Fare and Pizza in Montgomery, Alabama

Catching the tail of Hurricane Gordon, it was a rainy week at the beach that we made just a little better by extending our stay through Saturday afternoon instead of our usual morning drive home. This schedule change had the added benefit of allowing a dinner stop at Sa Za in Montgomery that is open […]

Midtown Pizza Kitchen – Fancy Pie in Alabama

Life is so good in that the Pizza Snob gets to spend a lot of time in the part of the country where the best pizza is made: New York and New Jersey. Let me just say, if you don’t agree with that statement, I beg to differ in a big way. But, that doesn’t […]

New York Pizza in Homewood, Alabama – A Place That Just Doesn’t Live Up to Its Name

If I behave myself, Mrs. Pie will let me stop for pizza along I-65 on our annual vacation drive to the Florida Panhandle. Timing has it that going down we stop in Montgomery while coming back it’s Birmingham. My pre-screened pick for this year’s return trip was the enticingly-named New York Pizza in Homewood, a […]

Tomatinos Pizza & Bake Shop—An Adventure with Whole Wheat Crust in Montgomery, Alabama

There are quite a few pizza joints that I visited before I became the self-anointed Pizza Snob. Recently I returned to one that I enjoyed despite it not being a purveyor of classic New York-style pizza. On our way to the Florida Panhandle for our annual beach vacation, Mrs. Pie and I took a break […]

UPDATE: Capone’s Pizza & Subs—Fun Pizza Joint in Millbrook, AL Is No More

Original Review: 05/27/13 PIZZA SNOB RATING ****1/2 Nearer Perfection The Pizza Snob is sad to report that you can no longer find a fun, great-tasting pizza experience just outside of Montgomery, AL. The pizza/speakeasy known as Capone’s Pizza & Subs is closed. I am sure glad I got to taste their great pizza, and I […]

Johnny Brusco’s in Birmingham, AL—Is This Really a Chain?

The annual Florida Panhandle vacation was over, and the drive back to Nashville again offered the opportunity for a lunchtime pizza stop in Alabama.  This stop, however, would be in Birmingham rather than Montgomery. Based on the recommendation I received on the way down from my new friend at the great Capone’s Pizza and Subs, […]

Great Pizza and Fun at Millbrook, AL’s Capone’s Pizza & Subs

Looking for a place not too far off the interstate on our way to the Florida Panhandle (30-A) for Mrs. Pie’s and my annual beach vacation, the Snob selected a relatively new joint on the outskirts of Montgomery called Capone’s Pizza & Subs. Capone’s is only three miles east of I-65 just north of Montgomery […]

Alabama Getaway to Famous Joe’s Pizzeria

The Snob’s alter-ego, Music City Mike,  just loves a road trip. He jumped at his friend Monty’s suggestion that they head to Huntsville, Alabama to see Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit record a live record at a local club. As with any road trip, the Snob did his googling and came up with a […]
