Elwood's Shack

Tucked in between the Lowe's loading dock and the back of a row of businesses that face Summer Avenue is Elwood's Shack. The Husband and I tried their pizza recently. I had the Margherita and The Husband had the BBQ pizza. Why anyone would put BBQ on a pizza is beyond me, but to each his own. I enjoyed half my pizza and took the rest home for supper the next night. I ordered the small size, but it looked huge to me. After we ordered, we saw that they sell bottled Orange Crush, so I'll be getting that next time. The Husband ate about half of his, but it was just too spicy and a bit heavy on the sauce to suit his taste. He'll try something else the next time we go.

We went over there for breakfast a few days later and tried their biscuit with bacon. Wonderful! At only $3 it's a great deal, and the coffee is even good.

I hope this place does well and stays in business for many a long year.

  1. Pizza hut at one time had a steak pizza that used steak sauce instead of marinara.

    1. that sounds like something my husband would like. i tend to be a pizza traditionalist.
