Description

Lots of people here, always. Expect a line at Mississippi Pizza Pub on 3552 N Mississippi (503) 288-3231. Sometimes people sing in the adjacent room, or Pete Rock reads. This time the water cooler was low. Not a big deal though cause Dan reminded me that the soda machine makes water.

Pizza guys are always friendly here but not too friendly. They’ll ask you if you want a beer if you don’t order a beer, which is good. Maybe the guys feel sorry for the slices when they leave the counter without beer since the two go so well together and really don’t like being separated? I don’t know.

A nice crust. I generally like mine a bit crispier, but this was okay. It made for good folding. Nothing falling apart like American Dream(’)s. An excellent sauce-to-cheese ratio, though I have to say that the sauce could be more flavorful (which is the biggest reason why I’m not giving this za 5 stars).

This is certainly one of the better pizza joints in Portland, so I’d recommend trying it out–and then going to The Albina Press afterwards…. I will give Mississippi Pizza 6 out of 8 slices.

    I go to Mississippi Pizza for the latin music (salsa, son, etc) and found pretty darn good pizza too! The slice with a small salad is a great buy and the service is fast! Now for the music – some of the best in Portland comes here from time to time, even though there isn't any space to dance (barely), but people are getting to know the genre. The little bar in the back has everything I need, and they carry some good rum , so why worry! Pizza you can get anywhere, but to get latin music with it, makes this a special place. No cash machine to pay the cover for the music, so DO bring CASH…the pizza and beer (etc) you can charge!

    One of the worst pizzas I’ve eaten so far in Portland, and that says a lot since Portland doesn’t have good pizza.
