Latest Spartan Pizza news and reviews

JM and Nichole ate the Spartan Deluxe pizza (12") with two sodas.
The bill was $23, or $11ish/person, plus tip.
JM and Nichole both gave Spartan Pizza a B+ (see our grading rubric).

Spartan Pizza was bustling aplenty on the night we visited.  The bar was mostly full and the tables were all full.  Turns out there was some sort of high school fundraiser, which accounted for about half of the tables being occupied, and then it was ALSO euchre* night.  Mean card players gave way to friendly staff, though, and we eventually found a small table in the bar we could perch at.

The pizza here is really quite good.  The crust is a little tough, which led to topping slippage, but otherwise the pizza is classic small-town pizzeria.  We got a Spartan Deluxe which came with all the classics: mushrooms, sausage, pepperoni, green and black olives, green peppers and onions.  While that may just sound like a vanilla Supreme pizza, each item was well-balanced. For pizza division nerds, this one came in squares.

Spartan Pizza

Spartan Pizza has been in business for over four decades, and received rave reviews from the McFarlanders we know. If it turns out this kind of pizza consistently, we would certainly be regulars if we lived in town.  Maybe we can visit by crossing the new bike bridge.

*A brief note about Euchre from game guy JM: I actually think euchre is a fine game for playing on apps or as a way to introduce trick taking games (moving on to the far superior 500 and then Bridge if you're really into it).  But for people to play hundreds of hours of Euchre is kinda pointless.  Once everyone gets to the plateau (which is maybe after 25-50 games) then you're just shuffling cards to see who got luckier. Not hating, just agog at the staying power of a game that I'd imagine people would tire of.
