Starting this week, I am posting a thorough review of the restaurants I visit here in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex or out of area/out of state. I am so excited to share my experiences because I LOVE food! I thoroughly enjoy going to a new restaurant and experiencing new recipes (or favorite recipes in a different way). I plan on being very transparent about each experience when I review. Please do not be discouraged to try these places. I am only giving my honest opinion.
Our first Tasty Tuesday on the blog will be Pie-Tap here in the Dallas area. A couple of weeks ago, my family and I met up with one of our dear friends for lunch to catch up. I love fellowshipping with others and making memories. It brings me so much joy. And what better way to do that than to share a meal of pizza!
Pie-Tap is a small pizza chain here in the Dallas area. They have a total of four locations. This pizza parlor gives its own spin to enjoying pizza. They pride themselves in making their food with the “best ingredients available and prepared with love and dedication.” Another thing they stand for is supporting local restaurants and businesses. For example, all of the beer options are from local breweries in Dallas.
When we entered the restaurant, we were greeted with kindness. The atmosphere of the place is very nice and aesthetically pleasing! Our waiter was very kind and personable. We first ordered the garlic knots (not pictured) as our appetizer. The knots also came with a provolone asiago whip. To be honest, I could have done without them. They were just okay. Plus, I was more excited about the pizza that we were going to order.
We also ordered some alcoholic beverages (not pictured) as we waited for our pizza. I ordered the Raspberry + Basil Mojito (rum, fresh raspberries, basil, fresh lime juice, mint, simple syrup). My boyfriend order the Bourbon Blackberry Smash (bourbon, fresh blackberries, fresh lemon juice, mint, simple syrup). Lastly, our friend ordered a Raspberry Lemonade (blueberry vodka, fresh raspberries, house-made roasted rosemary lemonade, elderflower liqueur). I did not really enjoy my drink. It was sort of a slush consistency and I was expecting my mojito to be on the rocks. I will say that it was very fresh, just wished it was on the rocks.
Our pizza order was the Pepperoni pizza and the Chicken (rotisserie chicken, bourbon bbq, bacon, onion, red onion, pepperoncini, cilantro, smoked mozzarella). The best way for me to determine if a pizza place is worth coming back is by how good the pepperoni pizza is. It. Was. Magnificent. I loved every bite! The chicken pizza was scrumptious too! I am a huge bbq chicken pizza fan and Pie-Tap did NOT miss. I can certainly say that my family will be coming back to this spot in the future!
For dessert, we ordered the House-made Donuts served with honey, from a local supplier, and strawberry jam. I was too full to give it a try, but my boyfriend said that the donuts were absolutely heavenly!
Overall, I’d give this place 9/10. I know it sounds crazy given that I didn’t care for the appetizer and drinks, but the pizza itself was enough to win me over! Be sure to check in every Tuesday on here for my full review and on Instagram!
