Post Office Pies
209 41st St S, Avondale, Birmingham, AL 35222
Marc and I went here for dinner at 7:45 on a Saturday night and it was packed, which was absolutely fantastic. We ordered and wound up having to sit at the bar, because no tables were available, which is a good sign for popularity, but annoying as a customer. As a Chicagoan, I know a good pizza when I taste one and this place does not have it. Birmingham is not known for its pizza, but there are decent pizza places here, so if you’re in the mood for pizza, go to Trattoria or Slice. Post Office Pies’s too-soft crust and runny sauce makes for a disappointing, mushy pizza. The atmosphere and beer (from Avondale Brewery next door) are the really redeeming qualities of this place. Hopefully they can improve the pizza and make it worth returning.
