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 […]
