Most Rock & Roll Pizza Joint

The Parlor

The solid red color scheme all over the walls of this new kid on the Loop is only broken by the monotoned mural portraits of famous rock icons like Roky Erickson and Nick Cave and the pool table up front. And don't get us started on the jukebox: old standards from Johnny Cash and the Everlys; classic Seventies like Styx and Foreigner, forgodsakes, and the baddest-ass punk rock compilations from the Eighties. This place rocks. The pizza is great: thin, floury, crispy crust, lip-smackin' marinara and mozzarella, and ultra-fresh toppings. Plus, the beer is cheap (check out the $1 Lone Star pint happy hours, nightly 4-8pm and all day Sunday). Now if there were just some place to put the stage - Can you say "Zeppoli's?"
