Pay attention to the Coal Fired part of the name. It's what makes this food so good! But be forewarned. Almost all dishes are baked and roasted in the oven leaving a black char on the food. It adds an abundance of flavor but may not be to some peoples liking.
I start with the Caprese salad ($5.49 for small) which consists of two thick slices of tomato, a thick slice of Grande mozzarella, and a generous portion of Basil, along with a stack of fresh roasted red and green peppers, Don't forget to add the olive oil and balsamic vinegar for the perfect bite. The tomato is fresh and perfectly ripened, the cheese is firm and creamy, and the shredded basil adds the right amount of herb to cap it all off.
Next it's the the very large Original Coal Oven Roasted Chicken Wings. They are served stacked high and covered with caramelized onions and two crisp wedges of Focaccia Bread with rosemary seasoning. The wings are browned and crunchy on the outside with a little bit of char but still very moist and tender inside. Mixed with the onions it's brilliant. This ain't no Buffalo wing!
If you're looking for a pizza and like garlic, you must try the Roasted Cauliflower Pizza- Roasted Cauliflower with Olive Oil & Garlic, Romano & Mozzarella Cheese, Topped Off with Bread Crumbs. The crust is crispy and slightly charred, the rosted cauliflower is firm and moist and the whole thing is a whirlwind of flavors and textures and absolutely delicious.
Sitting outside on cooler days is nice if you can tolerate the ambient noise of the South Dale Mabry traffic whizzing by. Inside ambient music is a mix of disco, 70s rock, and Beatles. The lunchtime crowd was small and I was seated quickly. The service there after was decent if not a little slow. My server brought extra napkins and a drink refill after I had finished my meal. They offer a separate lunch menu but dinner items are still available. The bar is lined with flat screen TVs for watching sports and you can view inside or out. If you're looking for take out, Anthony's might be your place. They have a special door and and parking spaces for carry out.
