This Saturday was triple date night. Philip and I met two of his best friends and their girlfriends for dinner at Slice. Slice is nestled right in the heart of Lakeview, next door to Moe’s BBQ. I feel like there is not enough buzz about Slice. It really is SO GOOD. It was started by three brothers who are local to Birmingham and are wanting to serve other locals great local food. Try and say that three times fast…
The atmosphere at Slice is quaint and bar-like, with a fun neighborhood vibe. The front patio is made up of beautiful stone, burning tiki torches and heating lamps/umbrellas to always promote a comfortable outdoor environment. Immediately inside, you will see a circular bar, with perfect view of the pizza oven. I’m thinking I might want to sit up there next time! Except, probably not on a Friday or Saturday night. Slice has a great bar scene too!
I’ve been asked to start including daily and weekly specials! I’m not sure why I didn’t think of that sooner! It was a great suggestion. Slice has a week full of specials, however they prefer to post them daily. Monday’s specials include:
- Medical Monday – Medical Field Professionals receive 25% off entire meal from 11AM – 10PM (bring work ID or pay stump for proof)
- Happy Hour Specials from 3PM – 6PM
- $2 Bud Light, Budweiser, Ultra, Coors Light, Miller Light
- $5 Craft on Draft
- All glasses of Wine 1/2 priced
- $5 Well Drinks (Tito’s, Jack Daniels, Jose Cuervo, Bacardi, Tanqueray)
- $5 Margaritas and Sangrias
As a table, we started with (drinks obviously) garlic cheese bread, house salads and the baked feta dip. Slice is a pizza place, but they pride themselves on adding their own flare to your common pizza parlor dishes. The garlic cheese bread was served as a thin crust pizza with just cheese and seasoning. The house salad is made up of a mixed green lettuce, cherry tomatoes, candied pecans, Alabama goat cheese and topped with a house dijon vinaigrette. I’m not much of a salad girl, but this one is so flavorful and nails the sweet and salty combination! The baked feta is topped with fresh thyme, roasted garlic, sun-dried tomato, olive oil and crostini (which I really have no idea what that is…).
Most importantly y’all, Slice has the best pizza. The crust crispness and the sauce to topping ratio is perfected over at Slice. Philip and I tend to stick to the basics (his doing, not mine 🙂 ) and we decided on pepperoni and spinach. Guess who’s side didn’t have the spinach… The other two pizzas on the table were the Old School and the Basic Pesto. We didn’t order one bad menu item. Their menu is one of my favorite pizza menus in all of Birmingham!
Eat Local. Drink Local. Be Local.
