Silver Dollar Pizza II
225 SW Broadway
Portland, OR 97205
Iâ€™m not going to try to fool you; Silver Dollar Pizza II is not an upscale restaurant by any means. In fact, the place is pretty much a dive bar, serving up their stiff drinks to the often-smoking and drinking clientele. But there is a good reason to try it out: their pizza is very, very delicious!
I have been coming here off and on for almost two years, and Iâ€™ve never had a complaint with the service or the food. Sure, itâ€™s a little bit smoky at times, but what can expect from a bar with a faÃ§ade of a pizza-serving sports bar? They do in fact have several TVs showing sports, so, yes, I would call it a sports bar.
The menu also offers sandwiches and other stuff (this place is very popular with the local areaâ€™s food service crowd), but the pizza is by far my favorite here. Itâ€™s super cheesy, the crust is buttery-good and they pile the toppings high and thick. Itâ€™s a knife-and-fork pizza in a very good way!
I will be back over and over again. If you canâ€™t stand to be in a smoky bar, skip it. But if you donâ€™t mind the bar atmosphere (jukebox, pool tables and video games included), itâ€™s a hidden pizza gem!
Pros: Great pizza, excellent service, stiff drinks
Cons: If you donâ€™t like to be around smokers donâ€™t bother going, itâ€™s more of a dive bar than a restaurant
