Groovy’s Pizza & Grill
The biggest slice of Pizza I have ever seen
This is a quick post on a new pizza place that I went to this past weekend. I definitely recommend their pizza. The place is called Groovy’s pizza and grill in Coconut Grove, Florida.
So my College age son has been raving about how great this pizza place that his friends had taken him was so this past weekend we went to try it out. The place is located off of US1 and 27th Avenue with its private parking lot. I found it at little odd that the entrance to the restaurant happens to be next to the drive thru of Jimmy Johns so be careful with the cars pulling off the drive thru. Once inside the place if very colorful and very big, a lot of red cushiony booth type seats and tables. I found the décor of the walls such as a mural of superman very lively and perfect if you want to watch a game as they have plenty of tv monitors.
They have no table service so you basically order at the counter and are given a beeper to let you know that your food is ready. We ordered a couple of pizza slices, burgers and their lasagna. They have a good selection of bottled beer, fountain drinks and a good selection of non-alcoholic drinks and juices.
For starters, I was surprised of their to go pizza boxes as the biggest one they had was a 24” pizza box, I could just imagine that monster of a pizza, no, never mind, I can’t imagine.
Our food was ready and sure enough my son was right, just one slice of pizza took two paper plates, the pizza was very good, good dough and sauce, you can order it with toppings or plain cheese. But believe me, one slice can feed two . I mean this was a huge slice, I myself, have never seen one this size.
My husband opted for the classic burger cooked to his liking, very big burger and juicy, it is accompanied by french fries, very good ones, I might add. My husband liked it very much.
I on the other hand kind of messed up and ordered a lasagna, I feel that I should have ordered a pizza or a burger as I was disappointed with the lasagna. Don’t get me wrong, it was good but I have had better and really, in my opinion if you want to eat lasagna you go to an Italian restaurant, my opinion. The lasagna I ordered came with two rolls but they were not the best either, they were very dense. I am sorry to say that I should have ordered a slice of pizza.
Overall, I found Groovy’s to be a great place for pizza and beer, maybe next time I will try their wings and other menu items.
