Best Pizza In Dallas?

This isn’t a highly original topic for this Blog, but I guarantee it will prompt a lot of interesting responses.

My favorite pizza in Dallas is at Louie’s on Henderson, a tolerable place to eat now that smoking is banned in this media Mecca. A close second is The Elbow Room on Gaston, in the shadow of Baylor School of Dentistry, where the pizza, jukebox and everything else on the menu is fantastic.

The best take out pizza is from Marco’s on the southeast corner of Preston and Royal (214-363-6122) in the heinous strip mall that also hosts Border’s. It’s take out only and cash only. The salads are great at all three places, too.

I’m amazed at the number of people who haven’t eaten at Louie’s, The Elbow Room or Marco’s. Of course you have to love thin crust pizza, and dank, dark, reasonably priced, hole-in-the-wall joints. If you like Cafe Express, you won’t like these three places.

So, where else is the pizza, salad and people watching without parallel?

    Good pizza in Dallas is impossible because of the water. The water in the northeastern US tastes better, which in turn makes the bread better, which in turn makes the pizza awesome. However, I may do some research to see who does the best here in Dallas with what they have to work with.

    I’m from Philly, so I really know what you mean. I’ve found a few OK places, but nothing that beats the little independent Italian pizza places that seem to be in every other shopping center there.

    I have not live in Dallas since 1982, to this day I compare all pizza to Marco’s in Preston Royal plaza. Few come even close. That is the best pizza on the planet. Race home when you get it or you will have a huge greasy stain in the seat as it soaks through the box.

    Amen to Marco’s at Preston and Royal, I’ve been going there since the early 60’s when I was a kid and now since they ship nationwide, I have them shipped to my kids at college!!
