Restaurant Review: Pitfire Pizza

Full Disclosure:  I paid for this meal with my own money and I was in no way reimbursed for this blog post.  The opinions are completely my own.

While we were in California, more often than not, we just wanted something easy for dinner.  This happened especially after we realized that the majority of the restaurants in the area are really delicious so we shouldn’t stress about finding the perfect place to eat every night.  Pitfire Pizza happened to be somewhere that we drove by on practically a daily basis going to or from where the husband was working.

The atmosphere of the restaurant is very open and airy, it is definitely not a fancy restaurant – but it isn’t grungy either.  It is kind of an interesting cross between a counter service restaurant and a waitress service restaurant.  You order your pizza and beverages at the counter and then find a seat (kind of like how Noodles and Co works) but then once you have your food, there are waitstaff that come around and will refill your drinks and bring you other things if needed.

For dinner, we started out with a chocolate chip cookie.  Yeah, we had dessert before dinner. :)

The cookie was just ok for me, it was soft and chewy, but it actually didn’t have very many chocolate chips in it!

I had a Margherita Pizza and the Husband had a Pepperoni Pizza.

Pitfire Margherita Pizza

I know the photos make them look kind of burnt, but it really wasn’t that bad.  They were a little crispy in parts, but it didn’t really bother me.  The crust was delicious! (and I guess I’m not that picky when it comes to things being slightly burnt)

Taste: A-, good solid pizza! (Even if it was a little bit burnt)
Cost: A, my Margherita pizza cost $9.50 which I think is pretty reasonable.

Would I go there again?  I’m not sure.  Even though I liked the food, it wasn’t really different in any way. Yes, the crust was really good, but that was the only really distinguishing part of the pizza.
