Last April we visited the Tavern On Prospect in Junction City and had a chat with April, the bartender on duty that night. That night I learned that she also bartends at The Pour House, which is located right down the street from the MBIP Headquarters. We did one post from The Pour House way back in February of 2013 when this blog was still in its infancy. While chatting with April, I learned that they serve up homemade pizza at The Pour House and put that information in my memory banks for a week where I was running short on time, since it’s so close by. Well, this is that week, it’s been crazy and unlike the Stolling Rones, time is definitely not on my side right now. So let’s make tracks to the MBIP Moblie and hit the road for this week’s pizza pie at The Pour House. Maybe April will be on duty and we can have a Peaches and Herb reunited moment!
It's really bright out here, one of these days I need to do a post on getting prescription sunglasses. The Pour House is straight ahead on Willow Knolls Road. According to my calculations, we'll be there in exactly two minutes.
Baboom! Two minutes on the dot and here we are! Looks like my calculations were correct.
Let's go in and start week number 27 of this pizza pie journey.
It's early on a Sunday afternoon, so there's plenty of seats in here and I think I spy a familiar face down there...
It's April, looking pretty as always and she's armed with an ice-cold beer! It was great to see her and catch up. She told me that the pizza here is really good and it gets raves from the customers in here.
Here's the view from my perch at the bar.
Blue and yellow lights hang over the bar from the ceiling.
Greg and Wes were seated down from me at the bar and Greg said he recommended the pizza. Here they are with April who came around to the other side of the bar to pose with them. Wes said he was familiar with the blog and that he follows the MBIP facecrack page. Always love to hear that!
I ordered my pizza and checked out the menu. I didn't realize they had a full kitchen in here. They have salads, lots of appetizers and ten varieties of sandwiches in here including a Philly Cheese Steak, Butterfly Pork Chop, Turkey Club and a Crispy Buffalo Chicken sandwich.
The place is starting to fill up in here as you can see from these tables opposite the bar. April told me that a lot of people from the apartment complexes frequent the Pour House as well as golfers from the nearby golf course. Wow, just got a Huey Lewis flashback! That's always weird.
This table is bathed in the sweet cyan light from the Blue Moon neon sign hovering nearby.
Dueling darts! Deedle-dee-dee-dee.
This is the specials board that detail different daily deals.
Sly Stone had, "Everyday People," The Pour House has Everyday Specials. So there!
Here's some of the beers on tap behind the bar.
And speaking of the bar...
It looks like it's just about pizza time! Once again I forgot to bring along one of the giant Tabasco bottles sent in by Ragin' RR, I gotta remember that next week.
The good news is that there's no Frank's Hot Sauce in this trio of hot sauces. They have Louisiana Hot Sauce, Sriracha and the one in the middle is something I've never seen called, "Local Folks Foods." I think I'll stick with the Sriracha.
Here's this week's pizza, served up by The Pour House chef, Tyler! It looks good and Tyler said he thought we'd like it.
There it is, pie number 27 all peppered and sauced up.
I put two slices on the plate to begin the all important cooling process. The most important part of the cooling process is that it allows you time to have another beer.
The pizza is really good here. the crust is thin, but not cracker crunchy thin and the sauce is tangy and it plays well with the savory sausage and cheese.
I'm stuffed and there's a landing strip of pie left for tomorrow.
And just like that, tomorrow is today! Time for the weekly cold pizza challenge and we're down to one Kite Tail beer, looks like I need to get a new six pack for this corner of the MBIP fridge that doesn't house Budweiser.
It's delicious! Thanks to April, Tyler, Greg and Wes for a wonderful afternoon at The Pour House! We'll see you all tomorrow!
