Next time you’re rolling down N. Monroe St, don’t pass up the opportunity to try a gem quietly tucked away in Midtown. A truly unique pie, Dave’s Pizza Garage serves up a taste that you won’t find anywhere else in Tallahassee.
Dave moved from Buffalo, NY in 2001 to attend Florida State University to pursue a career in elementary education. Unfortunately, he quickly realized that no one in Tallahassee made a pizza pie like what he grew up knowing. Missing that taste of home, he began baking pies out of his house.
At first it was just for family and friends. But soon, it grew into much more. Friends were telling friends about “the BEST pizza they ever tasted” that Dave was making out of his house. Jumping on the opportunity to make a few extra bucks, Dave set up an e-mail address and ordering system where people could order 24 hours in advance and Dave would bring the pizza to their door for dinner the next day. After about 9 months of running pizzas all over Tallahassee, Dave’s wife said, “Go BIG or go home.” In other words, “I’m sick of doing all these dishes, open up a restaurant and do this for real!”
With her urging and support, that’s what Dave did. Since April 2013, Dave’s Pizza Garage has been serving up “Pizza and wings for those who want THE BEST and KNOW the difference.” Come on by and try Dave’s Pie!
