Old Chicago Pizza and Tap Room: Pepperoni Rolls

liberty_hall_tyler_texas_tx

Looking for something good to eat, along with something fun to do?  You just can’t beat Old Chicago Pizza on a Tuesday night with friends – well, actually any night is excellent, but we love Tuesday Trivia!  This has become our gang’s go-to lately on Tuesdays, and one of the best things on the menu, as far as I’m concerned, is their Sicilian Pepperoni Rolls.  Not your usual pepperoni rolls, these babies are served piping hot with a side of pizza sauce for dipping.  Nothing tops these yummy rolls of specialty dough that are loaded up with pepperoni, melty cheese, and fresh onions, unless it’s an ice cold glass of your choice of one of their specialty beers available every night.

Don’t know where to start with all of their choices of beers?  Put together a flight to find where your particular palette is the happiest, after all they have 110 different choices and one of them is bound to fit the bill!  Get on board for their World Tour of Beer to win points and prizes.  It one be long until you are a bona fide Cicerone of beer – what a sommelier is to wine.

With a widely varied menu that includes everything from Buffalo Wings, Soups and Sandwiches, Pizzas, Salads, Calzones, and more, there’s something for everyone at Old Chicago.  My favorite dessert is the Brownie Bites – warm little squares of fudgy goodness drizzled with caramel that are just begging to be dunked in the hot fudge sauce served on the side.

Then, add to all that good food and drink, a fun time playing trivia with your friends and you’ll find yourself right in the middle of a great Tuesday evening at Old Chicago Pizza and Tap Room located at the corner of Old Bullard Road and Loop 323 in Tyler.  To view their menu and for more information, visit https://oldchicago.com/locations/tyler
