Post Office Pies just opened in March of this year, and is brought to you by the owners of Saw’s Soul Kitchen. It is located in Avondale in an old post office building (hence the name). It was a highly anticipated restaurant, and Nate and I were very exciting about going.
We walked in to a very busy restaurant, trying to look for seats and peruse the menu. Nate and I ordered a white pizza and a meatball pizza (this was a special for the night). We ordered some Avondale beers, which is definitely one of the best things about Post Office Pies, and began our search for a seat.
We started outside, and then Nate found a table inside, but it was right under an air vent and in the middle of the restaurant. After patiently waiting, we finally got a nice table in the back along the wall. We got a couple of more beers, and our pizzas were brought to our table after waiting for about 30 minutes.
The pizzas themselves looked good, but nothing out of the ordinary. The same could be said about the taste. They definitely weren’t bad pizzas, but they were very mediocre. There was too much crust, leaving only a few bites of actual pizza. To quote Nate, “I would rather have Pizza Hut.”
Although the pizzas weren’t very good, they were very affordable. I don’t plan on going back, but I wouldn’t say no if someone really wanted to go. I would be going for the Avondale beers (and location) more so than the pizza. I give this Taste of the ‘Ham 2 stars.
