Byrnes Grilled Pizza 5615 N. Illinois Street

Byrne's 003

Byrne’s is not a new name to pizza lovers. They have had a food truck for a few years and this is their first sit down with a roof . It is at the place that housed the Oh Yum Bistro. It isn’t very big  but it does have several tables inside and a few out doors, for when the weather changes.

They have a nice menu offering salads, sandwiches and the typical Italian appetizers as well as their name sake pizza. To start the ball rolling I ordered a pair bread sticks for $3.25. You can also opt for 4 for $5.

As you can see they are your standard bread stick,nothing spectacular just a solid bread stick with a side of a very good red sauce. The sauce was full of chopped garlic which Pat and I both really liked.

Their individual pizzas are priced at $7 with toppings at $.75 each. A more than reasonable price for what you get.

They make their crust ,sheet it in advance and wrap them for later use. They also use fresh mushrooms, which I really like. After inquiry I learned that they buy a spicy Italian sausage made by Kincaid’s,right next door. That sold me so I got a sausage mushroom pie.

The pies they serve are thin crust and the result is excellent. A nicely crisp bite with a hint of char from the grill worked really well for me. The sausage was wonderful as well. A touch of spiciness and more than a hint of fennel made for a delicious pizza.

Byrne’s has a nice wine list as well as 4 different craft brews on tap and several bottle choices. This isn’t a bar with pizza its a pizza parlor with beer and wine. I think their choices are spot on. The regular price is 5 bucks but Wednesday is their $3.50 pint day. So I was quite impressed with their pie. Nice thin crust with a great sauce, good toppings and covered with a blend of Mozz. and Asiago cheese. They also offer a white sauce for the less traditional pizza lovers, as well as Buffalo and BBQ. So I think anyone with a taste for good pizza should consider Byrne’s on Illinois. This place won’t move on you like their truck.
