Even though Beer Barrel Pizza and Grill offers all the bar food classics, like wings, burgers, wraps, and even tacos, the pizza is still the star of their extensive menu.

Some of the more unique flavors on their pizza menu include bacon and mashed potato, zesty thai chicken, and roasted eggplant vegetable. If you’re gluten free, there are actually two options on the menu for you — a gluten-free crust, or a cauliflower crust, made with cauliflower and held together by rice flour.

All deep dish, all the way. These pizzas are hefty and rectangular, loaded with cheese and toppings. Plus, Jet’s offers quite a unique item called the Jetzee, which is basically a sub in which the bread is swapped for pizza crust. Funnily enough, the menu also includes a Pizza Jetzee, in which the pizza toppings are sandwiched between two pieces of golden-brown crust. If any of this strikes your fancy, or your curiosity, stop into Jet’s to see what it’s all about.

“Best square pizza you're going to find.  The crust is perfect, the sauce is delicious, the cheese is tasty, and the toppings are fresh.  Jet bread is the ultimate cheese bread.” - Johnson Y. on Yelp

For 75 years, DiCarlo’s has been proud to serve their delicious pizza. Made from crispy dough, homemade sauce, and hand-grated cheese, these pizzas are first baked and then sprinkled with cheese. The tradition of serving the pizza using cold cheese added at the end is one that Primo DiCarlo, son of the founder, brought back from Italy during WWII. Their square slices, which can be ordered online, have captured the interest of many food critics.

“I really like the location of this pizza place. There is plenty of parking. The restaurant was clean and there was pleasant music when entering. They also have gender neutral rest rooms. I ordered a gluten-free pizza which comes in 12 inch. I found the crust to be perfectly done and the topping generous. Delicious!” - Becca M. on Yelp
