    This past week a few friends and I took a trip to Bardstown Road in search of a place to stuff our faces and share our stories. This was definitely not the first time we had ventured out this way looking for a greasy slice of pizza to swallow down without a worry in the world, but it was a completely new experience for us when we stepped into Za's Pizza Pub.

    Located at 1573 Bardstown Road, Za's has a space filled with pool tables and other forms of entertainment, and hosts a happy hour every day from 4 to 7. They are also an open-air restaurant during more comfortable and warm days, opening their front windows to allow a nice breeze to come in and give you a completely unobstructed view of the almost always busy, beautiful, sometimes bizarre expanse of Bardstown Road. 

    After being met by a very personable server I turned my attention to the food choices that the pub was offering. Ranging from 10'' to 16'' the pizzas are priced based on size and toppings unless you get a specialty pizza with predetermined toppings. They also offer calzones, subs, sides, and salads. On this particular outing we ordered a 10'' cheese pizza for $9.75, a cheese calzone for $7.95, and cheese sticks for $6.95. It had not even been a full ten minutes before a fully-cooked New York-style pizza, a larger-than-life calzone, and an enticing plate of cheese sticks made its way to our table and from there to our satisfied stomachs. 

    Za's Pizza Pub's website has a menu that is available for viewing at any time, and if you are within the range depicted in their "delivery" tab you can simply wait for it at home!

    About Gage Troutman

    I am a lover of writing and all things literature as I have been since a very young age. My works range from novels to poetry and everything beyond or between, though there are pieces I am not the proudest of. I have a lovely partner, amazing family, and eight erratic, excitable dogs that couldn't be more like children if they were completely hairless and stood on two legs. Do not let me fool you though, I am basically your average person who is a bit obsessive over video games and anything with a good story. If you like the articles go ahead and check out my other works on and go ahead and add me on Facebook if you'd like!
