Take Out Tuesday Suggests: PIZZA in THE GREEN AT COLLEGE PARK

In celebration of the unique flavors and green spaces found throughout Downtown Arlington, you’re invited to support local restaurants by ordering Take Out every Tuesday, especially now through June 1. Pair your take out with a lovely outdoor park, nook, or seating area in Downtown and you've instantly got yourself an urban picnic getaway.

This week, we suggest a classic: PIZZA.  

Perfect Pies  

Check out these five-star Yelp ratings that perfectly describe our own experiences at some of our favorite Downtown pizza places:

Cane Rosso
200 N. East St.

 ... my hubby is from Rome so he is kind of a pizza snob. I had the Billy Ray Valentine and hubby had the Margherita (of course). Both were excellent, we added the burrata appetizer. I love burrata, but add sour cherries and balsamic and I'm in heaven. Definitely worth the wait and so happy to have Cane Rosso in the neighborhood. I see many meals being had here in the future. I highly recommend if you like a real authentic wood fired Italian pizza. - Terri L. on Yelp

Mellow Mushroom Pizza Bakers
200 N. Center St.

 Mello Mushroom is such a treat for me... These pizzas are gourmet. They are rich, decadent and contain a lot of fats, carbs and dairy. The Holy Shiitake pizza is an experience in itself. If you like cream sauce and mushrooms, stop reading and try it right now. The pretzel bites are good, but more like pizza crust bites than pretzel. If you expect the brown salt covered dough then you will be disappointed. However, these are delicious. The best part - the PBR cheese dip. Great location, great food, and great memories. Luckily, my new home is just minutes away. Many more memories to come. - Cassidy B. on Yelp

Old School Pizza Tavern
603 W. Abram St.

 When I looked at the pictures of what the pizza looked like, y'all already had my heart! The reviews were good too. So we decided to go ahead and order five pizzas from this place and when I say this is the BEST pizza that I have had in a very long time I mean it. When they SAY old-school pizza this is definitely it! I LOVE when the toppings are under the cheese! The cheese was so gooey and just so much yumminess! Customer service outstanding! Pizza, best pizza that I've had in a very long time... - DeLese B. on Yelp

Pie Five Pizza
501 Spaniolo Dr.

 DELICIOUS! I ordered it through Doordash & it still tasted amazing. I forgot to take pictures, but I ordered so much. Alfredo pizza with chicken sausage and also personal pizza with spicy marinara that is the perfect amount of spice. And the cheese sticks just topped it all off. I'm sure the dine-in experience is even better. - Christian L. on Yelp

The Green at College Park 

The Green at College Park is an inviting space for students, neighbors, and friends to gather and relax. Located at the northwest intersection of Center and Mitchell streets in the College Park District on the University of Texas at Arlington Campus, it has a large lawn, native grasses, adaptive plants, and a curved stone wall that offers shaded seating... and the perfect tabletop for pizza.
