A good basic NYC slice without the fancy shmancy is still available at Romeos nearby. They say since 1945 begun by owner's dad in Patterson, NJ.
sounds like this place will present the same issues i've always had with 5 season's--great beer, but food that is more adventurous than the kitchen is skilled and a wait staff that is permitted to socialize rather than work. with the amazing pizza options available in decatur and now at timones in morningside, they better get the brewery up an running before they go belly up.
the crust-to-ingredients ratio looks a little high in the pic above.
if a third of your pizza slice is crust, you're doing it wrong.
Went on a Thursday night a couple of weeks ago; everything was fine, just that the place was nearly abandoned: 4-5 tables outside and no-one inside. Most of the students are hanging out at B&N's Starbucks across the street.
Mike, that's not literally my pizza, but they do serve pickles with the "swine pie" (BBQ pizza). I'm pretty sure that's the only one that gets the pickle treatment. And thankfully they're served on the side and not "on" the pizza itself. I do really like the fact that the BBQ here is bathed in a vinegar sauce rather than the typical brown sugar-y, thick BBQ sauce that so many BBQ pizzas employ. It lets the Riverview Farms pork shine through more clearly.
Why were you served pickles with your pizza?
#RealTalk - I had friendly and knowledgeable service the one time I sat at the bar (including being offered tastes of a couple beers, served up in cute little tasting glasses), so didn't see anything like what you experienced. Table service was a bit scattered on one visit, with some long delays in bringing beer to the table, but overall just fine.
3 tries? Joe is the most forgiving man in Atlanta.
How was your service, Brad? I enjoyed my food and beer on my visit, but was stunned by the bartenders. We sat at the bar, and they were ridiculously inattentive, choosing to play immature, flirtatious games with each other rather than even making eye contact with us. What a disappointment.
I'm glad to hear that the pizzas are improving. I wasn't impressed on my first 2 visits, but this leads me to think I should try again.
Also, there's this: I applaud them for serving a niche and showing a commitment to quality beer brewing -- but as someone who doesn't drink, the whole "beer, Beer, BEER" atmosphere of the place makes me feel like they think that I, as a customer who just wants a good pizza, don't really belong.
Found this place on Scoutmob, and thought it was a chain. The food they make is so, so good!!!

Love me some NaanStop. The samosas are great and that green sauce is addictive. I need to try the mango lassi.
Both are good, but I prefer the Naanwich wrap over the rice bowl (haven't tried a salad). I had a paneer wrap last week that was incredible. I didn't find it to be too messy, but I see how they could get that way with a lot of sauce.
Couldn't you just ask for the sauce on the side if you find the wrap to be messy?
Nelu, the Nepali menu is available at lunch - just not part of the list of lunch specials.
On week-ends they can be busy to the point of overwhelming them. The food is pretty good, prices low, but I hope that they improve their service when busy. Happy to say that if you order your food hot you'll get Indian hot. The Nepalese food is not offered at lunch as far as I could see.
One of my favorite restaurants in the world is Nepali Kitchen on Julu Lu in Shanghai. I never really thought of looking for Nepalese food here in Atlanta, so now I'm anxious to give this a try.
JoeinAtlanta, thanks! (I think)
Wayne, yes! I had a mention of Kathmandu Kitchen in Clarkston in a longer version of this. Great that we have two Nepali places around town now.
Dave, true, good lunch specials, though I believe the Nepali dishes are not part of the lunch special list (at least, if they were, I didn't see that on multiple visits).
Try it for lunch specials for a better price point.
U KNOW THERE'S ANOTHER TASTY HIMALAYAN/NEPALESE/INDIAN REstaurant in CLARKSTON ON MONTREAL RD NAMED KATHMANDU. IT'S REALLY GOOD AND COULD USE SOME LUV FROM ATL DINERS. WHEN I WENT A MEMBER OF MY GROUP FROM NEPAL THOUGHT THE FOOD WAS VERY GOOD AND VERY AUTHENTIC.
This is the kind of review I fondly remember from Creative Loafing's better days: Not a simplistic judgment on the relative merits of the restaurant, but rather an essay that helps me understand something unfamiliar, and that will guide me to make the most of the experience if I go there.
And based on the information above, I definitely want to go there. Thank you for the time and research that went into this review.
