If you’ve been busy hitting the books, now would be a good time to step away for an hour or two, and head to a local pizza parlor. Meet up with a friend for a study break or pick up a pie to bring home. There are some great pizza joints close to the luxury student apartments at Helix Starkville.
410 A MLK Drive, Starkville
Dave’s Dark Horse Tavern has been serving the Starkville community for more than 20 years. The food and the ambiance are what has made it a hit for so many years. Dave’s is a big supporter of Mississippi State, with games regularly showcased on the big screens at the Tavern.
Dave’s offers stuffed Chicago-style pizza, as well as New York style crust. Pizzas are stone baked, with a buttery garlic-basil sauce on the dough crust. From the menu, we suggest trying The Venetian, which is Chicago-style with grilled lamb, artichoke hearts, cucumber sauce and mozzarella. If you prefer New York style, try the Mr. Miagi pie, with fresh spinach, roasted chicken, red onion, and bacon on a sweet and sour base. There are other things on the menu here, such as specialty burgers, salads, and wraps. They also offer gluten-free pizza and more.
408 University Drive, Starkville
At Stromboli’s, they take their pizza seriously! They want any feedback – positive or negative – from their diners, as they want everyone to be pleased with their meal and their experience. No wonder they claim to be “Starkville’s favorite place for amazing friends and food.”
Here, we like to think of the dessert menu and work our way back! They have cookie dough bits and cannoli bites, baklava and cheesecake! All of the pizza here starts with mozzarella cheese, with the Fav Pizza option including seasoned chicken, cheddar, bacon, and ranch. They also offer pasta, salads, strombolis, and oven-baked subs.
Take a break from the books for a night of Italian dining at one of the best pizza parlors in town.
