Spedelli’s: Where the $1 High Life and Tasty Pizza Rule!

We have this new favorite place.  It isn’t some fancy 4 star restaurant nor will you find any white linens or $10 cocktails.  What you WILL find is everything you want if you are looking for low-cost but delicious food, fun entertainment, or a chill hang out session after a day on the mountain.  Welcome to Spedelli’s!

Spedelli’s is on Foothill Blvd., right as you are coming out of the mouth of the canyon–which makes is super convenient for anyone who is starving after boarding or skiing all day. My boyfriend, the obsessed snowboarder that he is, loves Spedelli’s because it caters to his mountain-riding, snow-loving instincts.  I would venture to say that if he can’t be on the mountain shredding or in our garage practicing his skillz–he would be at Spedelli’s eating pizza and watching The Art of Flight for the 11 billionth time.  However, being the non-snowboarder that I am (currently), I still love the place for very different reasons!  YES!

Spedelli’s is just plain cool.  The atmosphere is similar to a lot of pizza joints, but with some very awesome additives.  Spedelli’s big highlight for me is their bar and bar prices.  The actual bar makes you feel like you aren’t just at any other pie-slinging corner diner.  AND, the prices for their beer and wine are pretty fantastic.  $1 High Life and $1 PBR in the can is a great way to go, or take it up a notch for the draft pint of PBR at $1.75.  They also have imports and other drafts for the beer snobs, but still at much better prices than most bars or restaurants.  Wine?  $6 a glass all around.  NICE!

However, the food at Spedelli’s is also pretty awesome–and getting better.  We have been eating there since they opened and find that the pizza only gets better each time. And…there is something about Spedelli’s sauce that keeps us coming back. Also, all of the side or appetizer items we have tried so far have been great, fresh, and reasonably priced.

While you are eating, you can choose to watch snowboarding videos, or if you are so inclined, read some of the local print such as SLUG and City Weekly or even Arkade.  If that doesn’t suit you, you can play a game of pool, or hit up some of their new video games like Asteroid or try to get yourself a killer prize from the game claw.  Spedelli’s even has live music! There is seriously something for everyone regardless of your  shredding abilities or involvement (thank GOODNESS!). Personally, I just like to check out the collection of vintage beer cans. :)

So, go support a great local spot that makes a habit of supporting other local artists, boarders, musicians, etc.  They deserve it and you won’t be disappointed!

  1. The place is half pub, half Chuckey-Cheese. There were kids running around everywhere. Snooty ski bums abound.

    The waitress got our taco order wrong and then didn’t even bother placing our pizza order.

    I ordered a Castle Rock Chardonnay. They served it in a skinny glass. I understand why they put it in that glass, they want to cheat you out of wine. There wasn’t two swallows of booze in the damn thing, but it was a full glass because of that fluted monstrosity they poured it in.

    I had to pour my Chardonnay into a beer glass so I could even drink it. A beer glass! Like some kind of a goddamned animal!
