Late Nite Pie

Late Nite Pie
302 Tuam St
Houston, TX 77006
(713) 529-5522

It's Friday night and I just enjoyed a great show at Warehouse Live. They had a special on Lone Star beer so of course I felt obliged to take part. After a few a beers the stomach started to rumble and it was almost feeding time for the masses. We decided to be smart and beat the crowds and leave the show a little early. Every time I watch a live concert I start to reminisce walking down 6th street in Austin indulging in tongue tantalizing pizza. The best spot I could think of close by was Late Nite Pie. Just a heads up they have moved to a new location. Once located in an old gas station turned pizza parlor off of Elgin, Late Nite Pie has moved to a larger spot off of Tuam. The best part about the move is the place is bigger and they have more parking. Come to think of it there is more parking than there are tables. I will admit the lack of tables is kinda of a downfall but you can still order your pizza and post up on any spot you can balance the pan. The decor of the place is pretty fun. They have pool tables both inside and out. They even have a ping pong table and a play area for the kiddos. While talking to the bartender I was told they are about to start having live music there on the weekends. We looked over the menu a little while and enjoyed a few beers. While they have some interesting names for some of their specialty pizzas I can assure you they taste alot better than they sound. The "Stanky Whore" is still yet to be proven wrong. This time we went for a classic favorite the "Italian Stallion". Nothing odd on this pie just sausage, pepperoni, roma tomato's and garlic served with a side of Italian dipping sauce. It didn't take very long for them to bring this fresh 'za out to our table. Everything about this was pizza fresh. The bread was so soft that it made every bite melt as it entered your mouth. One key note was that the garlic was very mild and didn't over power the rest of the pizza. The Italian sauce kind of seemed like a milder salad dressing but added a nice creamy compliment to the pie. Add it all together along with some cold beer and you have a perfect combination of sinful goodness. This pizza was so delicious I even ate my crust! At $15.99 for the medium, the price might seem a little high but I personally believe its well worth the cost. Late Nite Pie stays open late closes at 3am but I recommend getting here well before 2am. Since they are right next door to a night club I can only imagine how packed it gets once the bar closes. Just blogging about this place makes me crave it more. I cant wait to go back. Maybe I'll see you there!
