Today we tried Aldo’s Pizza Pies, a new restaurant on South Main Street in downtown Memphis. It’s apparently owned by the same people who own Bar Dog (a place I love) and Slider Inn, both Memphis favorites, so expectations are high and people have been buzzing about it since it was first announced.
The restaurant is gorgeous with lots of stained hardwood and high ceilings. They have specialty pizzas, pizza by the slice, lunch specials, and build your own pizza, as well as appetizers, salads, and (after their official opening) sandwiches.
We ordered a jalapeno and pineapple pizza from the build your own menu. It’s one of our standards and our waitress told us the chef said it was one of the best combos he’s seen. The pizza was delicious and the crust was chewy and not too crispy. I can’t wait to try some of the specialty pizzas! Look at that cheesy deliciousness! (Beware though, those jalapenos are HOT!)
The restaurant is currently in a soft-opening, but was already packed, even on a Wednesday. The patio has fans and misters, so it should be an awesome place for evening drinks, even on sweaty summer days. The atmosphere is fun, the staff is attentive, the lunch special is cheap, and the beer list is lengthy!
