The pizza at Grandpa’s Brick Oven Pizza is average at best. But thankfully, our years of watching the Fast and the Furious movies have taught us to be optimistic that there’s something useful in every ostensibly useless situation. The Fast and the Furious is useful because it gives us an accurate temperature check on toxic masculinity, and Grandpa’s Brick Oven Pizza is useful because it provides us with cheese-filled carbs, like calzones and strombolis after 10pm on weeknights. As an added bonus, nothing here costs more than $10 and there’s almost always an open table inside.
