A few months ago the Wooster Tavern on Wooster Pike transformed into the second location of Mac’s Pizza Pub. I went the Wooster Tavern a lot as an early twenty-something but haven’t been back in many years. The second I walked through the door, over this past weekend, it was like I never left.
The layout of the building is completely the same. There is a bar area to the right as you walk in the main door on the side of the building. To the left is a small dining area and then around the corner from there is the stairwell to the upper level with even more seating, a shuffleboard table, and another small bar.
There are TV’s in every corner of the building and then some. My parents joined us for dinner and my dad was really impressed by the number and quality of TV’s on their walls. We will definitely have to remember that when searching for somewhere to catch a game. Plus they have a really great beer selection. I was able to finally try Mt. Carmel’s Third Shift Imperial Coffee Stout. Wonderful!
For dinner we all agreed to split two medium (12″) pizzas. It was the perfect amount of pizza for the four of us plus our young child. Speaking of which, every single table in the place seemed to have at least one child with them, so it’s a very family friendly place.
The first pizza I tried was the Mac’s Supreme ($14.49 for 12″). This was loaded with pepperoni, sausage, ham, green peppers, red onions, mushrooms, and black olives before being topped with plenty of mozzarella and provolone cheese. It was basically a pretty standard supreme pizza but I really enjoyed their rather chewy hand tossed crust. The sauce was also full of flavor.
Our other pizza was the Hawaiian Heaven ($14.49 for 12″). This one was topped with pineapple, ham, bacon, and a dusting of cinnamon with the same cheese blend as before. I’ve had the Hawaiian pizza many times before, but I don’t recall ever having it with cinnamon. My parents were skeptical of this at first, but we all seemed to really enjoy the addition. It added a little extra spice to the already sweet pizza. This pie typically comes served with roasted almond slices as well, but we had them removed as I am allergic to almonds.
With an excellent selection of beer, great quality pizza, and TV’s on every corner, I think we may have found a new favorite spot.
