Deliciously prepared Third Street Pizza

Nothing beats pizza and a movie. Third Street Pizza Company is the perfect place for both.

It is a funky, laid back, friendly environment that makes for a great group dinner.

The uniquely prepared, fire-baked on stone rocks, New York style pizza is the best in McMinnville.

Not only do they offer a variety of house specialty pizzas, but as well as an assortment of fresh salads, sandwiches and calzones.

The Greek salad is a favorite of many and definitely worth trying.

The Veggie-Myte is my go to order. It is topped with loads of vegetables and I enjoy it every time.

Walking into Third Street Pizza, you immediately get a sense of the welcoming atmosphere and are almost always greeted with a smile.

On top of that, the staff is usually busy at work, but still seem to be enthusiastic about tossing dough and chopping vegetables.

You can enjoy a movie with family or friends while eating pizza.

The Moonlight Theater plays a range of movies and it is cheap.

It is not the traditional theater setting, but that adds to the experience. Pizza and a movie make for a great way to spend an evening.

In contrast, say you are looking for a quick bite to eat during the lunch hour, Third Street Pizza offers their Italian pies by the slice for those who may be in a hurry.

As long as it is not too busy, there is not usually a long wait for pizza.

They also offer pick-up and delivery.

On Oct. 3 my roommate and I were really craving pizza and it was 20 minutes before the restaurant was going to close for the night.

Even though our request was last minute, they were accommodating and still offered delivery.

All in all, you cannot go wrong with choosing Third Street Pizza Company.
