Mystery behind lower Yates Street storefront revealed

http://victoria.citi...front-revealed/

 

First it was to be an Internet cafe. Then a Blockbuster.

 

Most recently signage adorning a lower Yates Street storefront promises a restaurant by the famed Food Network host, Guy Fieri.

Confused yet? Feeling trolled, so is the rest of the city.

 

Citified decided to set the record straight and tracked down the operators to once and for all determine what is really going on behind the black window covering keeping gawkers at bay and work crews veiled behind a shroud of retail secrecy.

 

So, are you ready… [Full article]

So the electrician was right.  

 

A place that sells cheap beer and pizza, it will do well downtown.

 

I work just up the street from this new pizza spot but usually head to Brickyard pizza, which is a safe distance away from my office.  This new place may not be good for my diet.

It won't be. I'm already worried.

Signage has been installed. I quite like the neon.

I have high hopes for this place. Sounds like they're committed to real-deal NY style pizza and great prices.

I'd also love to see a Chicago deep dish place open in Victoria.

Any reviews yet? I like the look of this joint, reminds me of the old pizza parlors with the table games.

I stopped by for a beer and a slice of pepperoni this week. I was a little underwhelmed by the pizza but not unhappy with it. Total bill was under $9. Slices are also half-price after 9pm.

 

The atmosphere is hip and fun, and they offer table service. If they can maintain the current level of customer service, I think they'll do well. 

 

I'd go back.

You forgot to mention the pizza slices are HUGE

I think that is what I'm most excited by, if the make a slice you can fold and play skeetball then I think it sounds awesome. 

 

I will have to go when I'm in town next

FO has applied for a liquor license extension to serve between 9am and 4am daily.

They could save themselves a lot of bureaucratic hurdles if they just switched to "medicinal marijuana" sales outside of their current liquor license hours.

I see they also do a "as cheap as we are legally allowed to sell it" can of beer for $3.  Cool.

They did not get their 4am liquor extension.

 

The City did grant them a 9am start, with an 11pm end Su-Thu, and 1am end on Fri/Sa.
