The Varsity Sports Grill Pizza Ft. Smith, AR

Found myself once again traveling for work and landed in a place called Ft. Smith Arkansas. Beautiful part of the country. Was looking to grab a few drinks and see the local scene and I wandered upon The Varsity Sports Grill. After going in I couldn't believe that this sports bar had a wood fired pizza oven. It became evident what I would have with a few of my brewskis tonight.

The Varsity Sports Grill is located in Downtown Ft. Smith, AR on Garrison Ave. It is a typical sports bar with a bar area, with nothing really out of the ordinary (outside of that pizza oven). There is family seating area and even a few pool tables. Luckily they had a few pinball machines and old school video game machines for me to play while waiting. It is very spacious and once again, to the surprise a wood oven for pizza.

I had gotten the Tex's Heat pizza. It had their own tomato sauce, a hefty amount of mozzarella, pepperoni, and a nice thin rim of crust. For me it was perfectly heated around the pizza. The mozzarella tasted great and the crust wasn't to thick. The downfall for me was: there was too much mozzarella which made the pizza floppy, but I know others who read this might love that very aspect. I believe the pepperoni was store bought. I could barely taste the tomato sauce because of all of the mozzarella which was a shame cause it seemed like it had potential.

I would give this a 5 out of 8 slices mainly because of the other options in town. I have not found another pizza place in town with a wood oven and I believe you can't beat that kind of baking. For Ft Smith, AR I don't know if it can get any better.

The Varsity Sports Bar in Ft. Smith, Arkansas gets 5 out of 8 slices.
