Picture this. It’s late on Friday night and you feel empty inside. No, not the depressed and lonely kind of empty, but the hungry kind. Used to be you’d make a mental list of all the fast food drive-thrus within a 20 mile radius and succumb to late night munchie defeat. Well, you can now safely put those days behind you and embrace the wonder of Blackstone Pizza & Grill.
Located on Green Street in the Blackstone Canal District, Blackstone Pizza & Grill is just a crosswalk away from the popular Lucky Dog Music Hall and serves meals and munchies that exceed expectation even well into the night. The standard fare of pizzas and subs are fresh and tasty, but the taco salad… ahem, the giant taco salad…was a delicious surprise, not to mention that it’s served in its own crispy tortilla bowl. Who doesn’t love that?!
The atmosphere is neighborhood pizza shop meets urban bistro, with sleek tidy tables and chairs and a shiny stainless steel open kitchen. The two flat panel TVs and free wi-fi access make this a great spot for an extended lunch break, and their coffee and dessert is the perfect background for catching up with friends. And if you like a beer or a glass of wine with your pizza, you can BYOB.
For those who live nearby, Blackstone Pizza & Grill offers delivery for your quiet ~ or not so quiet! ~ nights in. When you feel like venturing out, you’ll find off street metered parking on the outside and friendly table service on the inside. They also provide a great kids’ menu for the little ones. Daily specials and a Friday only seafood menu are added bonuses to the Blackstone Pizza & Grill dining experience.
Stop in and check out the Blackstone Pizza & Grill at 102 Green St. Sun.–Tues.11am -11pm and Wed. – Sat. 10:30am -1:30am. Visit www.blackstonepizza.com for the complete menu or place delivery orders at 508-304-8569.
