How Many Is Too Many Pizza Joints In Downtown Vegas?

January 3, 2013 at 2:20 PM | by | ()

We love pie. We heart downtown. But, can Downtown Vegas handle not just one pizza joint, but four five?

Pop Up Pizza at the Plaza was one of our unexpected finds of 2012. So good, we've been time and time (and time) again. But, 2013 will pile on three more pizza shops to the downtown mix.

Further down Fremont Street, you'll find long-time pizza joint Piccadilly Circus, a hole-in-the-wall-type parlor as described (and knocked) on Yelp.

On the coming soon front, Radio City Pizza is coming to Fremont East after once being destined for the Plaza. The pizzeria is being built adjacent to Park on Fremont, a new bar that's still a work in progress as well. You won't have to wait long to try it out, though. Radio City Pizza will mark its grand opening next week according to the countdown (T minus 7 days and counting Thanks to @BruceNV on Twitter who reports the countdown has been reset to T minus 21 days now) on its website. (508 Fremont Street)

Pizza Rock is headed to what will be a newly reinvigorated Downtown 3rd this year (that section of downtown that already houses Mob Bar, Triple George, Hogs n' Heifers and the coming Downtown Grand). The edgy pizzeria -- described as "where artisan pizza meets nightlife energy" -- will feature a real semi blasting through it's exterior roofline (see below), just like the original outlet in Sacramento. When that shop made its California debut, two hour waits were not uncommon. No word yet on when the downtown Vegas outlet will start dishing it out.

Lastly, Slice is headed to The Ogden (a residential building that's a stone's throw from Fremont Street) by way of NYC's West Village. The Las Vegas Weekly has reported that this pizza shop will offer "seasonal, farm-fresh ingredients." We have to admit, we're already digging its online greeting to pizza lovers of all types, including those with restricted diets: "We welcome free-range meat lovers, vegans, celiacs, poets and everyone in between." No opening date here yet, either, though.

Update: @kristy_tea on Twitter has kindly reminded us of Uncle Joe's, another pizza shop found on Fremont Street. Yelpers report that it offers the downtown bargain of two slices and a drink for $4.50. (505 Fremont)

I think Downtown can handle it.

I grew up in a town of 10,000 people that has about 8 pizza places.  So I don't see a problem with 5 downtown.

We need it

I live downtown...really looking forward to walking to Radio City for pie. Plaza's too far to walk to grab a to-go...all the other places around downtown make crummy pie; the place currently across form Radio City is disgusting. Want to not have to order Domino's any more

DownTown Pizza

To me I like the Pizza/Cigar Bar at the 4 Queens...

Perched above the the casino back in a corner you have a view of the action.

Great Pizza cold beer and if you want to smoke -- no problem...
