Most any guy can relate to the conundrum of hanging out with a group of buddies watching football when suddenly there is no remaining food or beer and often this tragedy of near-epic proportions occurs almost simulataneously. Inevitably, no one in the group wants to make the run to the nearby store -- nor probably should they be out on the roads after cleaning out the original stash of beer.
It is safe to say that problem has been solved with the opening of Pizza Buzz in north Fort Worth. In one of those "Why didn't I think of that?' ideas, Pizza Buzz is a brand new concept that is the only pizza restaurant in Fort Worth that will actually deliver beer along with its pizza and/or wings. For those looking to maintain their girlish figures, the menu also offers garden and chef salads and wine coolers. An item that I suspect will be extremely popular is the Buzzer, a dessert and a case of beer delivered to your house for $36.99.
While the idea sounds great in theory, there is the actual execution of delivering beer that comes along with covering an obvious possible liability. To that extent, every person who works at Pizza Buzz is TABC certified and when delivering beer, they only accept credit cards and the name on the card must match the name on the I.D. of the 21+ person who is buying the alcohol.
Regardless of the pure genius of the idea to deliver beer, the reason Pizza Buzz should thrive is the fact that its pizza is top-notch. I ordered a thin crust pepperoni and sausage and it was great. Its very generous portions of toppings help make this among the best I have ever had.
As with most pizza delivery spots, Pizza Buzz delivers within a five-mile radius of its location on the corner of Basswood Blvd. and Park Vista Blvd., but the owners assured me that plans are already in the works to open two more locations in Tarrant County in 2014. For those not in the immediate area, Pizza Buzz does offer carry-out specials including the Carry-Out Quickie, a large one-topping pizza for $9.99. And, of course, you can grab a six pack of beer while you are there.
