bigcitytavern.jpgHad a lunch appointment with some friends from Miami so we chose Las Olas Blvd. in Fort Lauderdale as the meeting spot.  Ultimately my friends picked Big City Tavern for the lunch.  Big City Tavern is located on 609 E Las Olas Blvd Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301 (954) 727-0307.

I have previously reviewed the pizza at Big City Tavern in Boca Raton, which was far superior to this location.  This pizza was almost hard to eat, with the chunky, spicy sauce.  I ended up wiping most of it off and ended up making the most disgusting mountain of it on my plate, which I am unsure if my friends thought was attractive or not.  The cheese wasn't of great quality, and the dough almost seemed rubbery.  The pizza I ate at the location in Boca Raton was delicious compared to this location.  Even the presentation of the pizza at the Boca Raton Big City Tavern was tremendously better.  The Boca location also had the perfect cheese:sauce ratio, which the Las Olas location was severely off on.

I find it hard to understand how two locations owned by the same company can be so far off.  This is the problem when restaurants venture out and open up many locations, as might be evident with Renzo's soon.  Just because one location is doing well, does not mean the others will.

Big City Tavern, you have truly disappointed me with this pizza that you served, and I can never see myself coming back to give it another try, at least at your Fort Lauderdale location.  I will give Big City Tavern 2 out of 8 slices.

    Man…..just look at that picture. What a bunch of crap. There's no excuse for garbage like that. There's no way it could be good, no way.

    Why do you losers delete comments? You're hacks, and you know nothing about good pizza.

    I've had pizza at this location many, many time and have never had one that looked remotely like that. You said you at the pizza at the place. They don't have chunky or spicy sauce, their pizzas are sprinkled with basil generally, there rarely is any blistering, and the crust is quite good (I rarely eat the crust but do here). Clearly you have a bone to pick with this place. Dishonesty is ugly.

    1st off, this review is over a year old. 2nd of all, I think that you are dead wrong. I LOVE this pizza here!! Its thin crust, and fresh tomato sauce, and the basil, ooooh the basil!
    I am a frequent reviewer (ie: Yelp) and I dont really take any review that serious thats over a year old. You have no idea what changed in the kitchen, if there is new staff, or a new chef (which there just happens to be a new Chef as off Sept 2009!).

    If I were you I would go back and retry it. its pretty awesome.
