If you have read this blog very long, or know either of us personally, then you know our very favorite pizza place in Nashville is Joey’s House of Pizza. They used to be located in Brentwood, but closed that location to open near downtown off Fessler’s Lane. We’ve had several comments on our original Joey’s House of Pizza post and our Joey’s in Brentwood is closing post saying that “Hey, they’ve reopened and are great.” We agree and didn’t want our other posts or urbanspoon to be misleading, so we decided to blog about them again.
I personally love their Italian dinners (pasta, chicken Parmesan, lasagna, baked ziti). We visited a little late in the day, around 1:30 pm, and they were already sold out of all things chicken Parmesan (the dinner and the chicken parmesan roll). I decided to get the lasagna, which was fabulous. Seriously, this is the best lasagna in Nashville. It has lots of mozzarella and ricotta cheese, big chunks of tomatoes and sausage, and a really excellent, savory tomato sauce. It comes with a side salad, which has the best balsamic vinaigrette and mixture of spices to accent the fresh romaine lettuce, Roma tomatoes, and black and green olives.
Cary likes the pizza and orders it whenever we go there. He says that they have good quality pepperoni, a crispy but slightly chewy crust, and a great sauce. Back when our little guy wasn’t eating solid food yet, Cary read that a child’s first taste of pizza predestined their pizza palate. The theory is that whatever type of pizza a child tried first, the child would measure all other pizza by that first taste. While we realize this is a little extreme because let’s be honest, our first taste of pizza was probably from Pizza Hut, why chance it? So, we made sure that our little boy’s first pizza came from Joey’s.
He was a fan. So, if you are in the area, stop by and try out Joey’s House of Pizza. The food is great. The people are great. It’s a fantastic place!
