The thing you need to realize about Serious Pizza is that when you eat here, for the first time in your life, one slice will be enough.

No, this place doesn't mess around when they make a pizza. Their large pie measures in at some two feet across. That's 24 inches, you guys.

It's like Serious Pizza looks over at every New York City-style slice in town and just rolls their eyes — and then maybe sighs a little because they feel bad.

That's the headline here, of course — that the pizza is huge. It can lead to some complications, though. It'll took you a minute to get a handle on folding your slice so you can eat it with yours hands. Yeah, they give you silverware with your order when it comes, but eating pizza with utensils just feels weird most of the time.

The good news is that, once you master the fold-over, the whole process just gets better. The thin NY style pizza crust is cooked properly: It's crispy and avoids the obnoxious “flop” you'll get with an inferior, soggier product.

Yeah, there's a cornmeal dusting on the pie, too. But, listen, this is Texas and that's how things are done here.

A basic slice is $3.25 and additional toppings will set you back 75 cents apiece. Since you only need to get one slice, that's actually pretty good deal. You tell them what toppings you would like added to your cheese slice, they toss them on, cover that with more cheese and then toss it back into the pizza oven to cook. It might not be the most ideal way to top a pizza, but, looks aside, it's still pretty tasty.

You might wanna ask for your slice well done so the cheese doesn't look so wan and pale. But the taste is still pretty great considering how much food you're getting.

Really, Serious Pizza is the perfect after-bar place. Which explains why it's always so busy around 2 a.m. Thing is, it's worth the wait, even then.

Did this not convince you to go there yet? Well, with a food purchase on Mondays, you get draught beers for a dollar. Is that better?
