Southside Flying Pizza on South Congress near Oltorf

Order a pizza and wait without a beer? Torture. Order a pizza and wait with a beer? Heaven, plain and simple. This building housed fast Freddie's $5 Haircuts for a decade before becoming a Pizza Joint. I hope they succeed because I like this pizza reheated in my toaster oven better than any other I have ever had. I thought the crust was tough when it was fresh but magic happened after a couple of nights in the refrigerator. Drive through So Co but start slowing down after the Trophy Lounge. It will be on the right, right after the old porno theater that is now something else. They have a parking lot good for about ten cars, maybe? They have a small triangular outside deck and cool ambiance inside. My son told me about a positive pizza experience he had in this place that had a lot to do with someone else footing the bill, but I liked it even though I had to pay my own way. What else can I say? If you're hungry and headed home from Guero's (as I was) or the Continental Club (as I was not, on this particular day) then pick up a couple of pizzas and let half of each age in your refrigerator for a couple of days, if you have the willpower. Watch the video and you'll see what I mean.
