Longtime friends and fellow Tennessee State University grads Clinton Gray, E.J. Reed and Derrick Moore have been receiving positive local and national attention matching the ever-present lines out the door at North Nashville’s Slim & Husky’s Pizza Beeria fast-casual artisan pizza and craft beer joint in the Buchanan Street area. The city’s more underserved neighborhoods, may never be the same as the trio looks for expansion opportunities, with a June 2018 opening in a former Applebee’s in Antioch the first. A takeout-only spinoff called The Rollout already has opened up for both places, with cinnamon rolls also offered along with pizza.
Beer, wine and adult slushies available. Serving lunch and dinner 10:30 am-11 pm Mon-Sat, noon-8 pm Sun.
MUST EATS: Red light pizza, build-your-own pizza.
“… thin-crust pizza with fresh ingredients, which holds up very well even to go (that’s not always a given with thin-crust pies). The trio credits their chef, Jason Williams, for getting the dough and ingredients right, and also for the custom drizzles for topping the pizzas.”
