A pizza & pasta restaurant named Barbarian’s has opened at 511 State Street, the former home of Wahoo’s Fish Taco and Taiko. Owner Bill Clayton tells me that the eatery also has 13 beers on tap and 12 TVs offering DirectTV sports channels. Barbarian’s has draft root beer on tap, which I am told is hard to find downtown in addition to the only regulation-size 16-foot shuffleboard. Clayton, who was born and raised in New Jersey, says the dining destination offers East Coast-style thin-crust pizza. They offer a 16 and 20-inch pies in addition to slices from a 20-inch pie.
Their specialty pies (not available by the slice) include Barbarian House Pie (pepperoni, bacon and pineapple), The Salsipuedes (hot Italian sausage, roasted red peppers, roasted garlic and jalapenos), Pizza Blanco (extra virgin olive oil and mozzarella topped with ricotta, roasted garlic and fresh basil), Veggie Castillo (fresh Roma tomatoes, carmelized onions, artichoke, garlic, mushrooms, red peppers, chopped parsley), Classic Margarita (extra virgin olive oil and mozzarella topped with sliced tomatoes and fresh basil), BBQ Chicken (Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ sauce, red onions, bacon, fresh Roma tomatoes and shredded chicken) and 154 (Italian sausage, pepperoni and Canadian bacon).
Hours are 11 a.m. – 2:30 a.m. Tuesday – Sunday, 5 p.m. – 2:30 a.m. Monday. For more information call 884-0044.
