Another pizza place review already??
Restaurant: Fetta Specialty Pizza and Spirits
Location: 118 St Ann St, Owensboro, KY 42303
What I had: the Smothers Park Special, Mashed Potato Bacon and Scallion, Sausage and Vidalia Onion (mushrooms added), Garlic Knots, and a Brownie/Chess bar (for dessert).
What I liked: The Smothers Park Special. Quite possibly the best meat loaded slice I've ever had. The Mashed Potato Bacon and Scallion pizza...I'll explain. The Sausage and Vidalia, The garlic knots, and the dessert.
Why I liked it:The fact you can buy gourmet specialty pizza by the slice. The friendly and helpful staff and the level of service they provided consistently over 3 different visits. They have Coke Zero on the fountain. Most of all, the pizza(s)!
The Smothers Park Special! If I like anything on a pizza, I like meat the most. This thing comes loaded with salami, pepperoni, sweet Italian sausage, and olives. The thing is, I'm not a fan of olives on pizza. I won't pick them off if they're on there, but they're not my favorite. The olives they use (kalamata) just add to the overall meatiness that this pie offers.
Mashed Potatoes on a pizza?? Think that sounds weird?? I thought so too until I tried it. Tasty, tasty carbs. Not my favorite, but a true winner. If I hadn't tried the Smothers Park Special, it would have been my favorite.
The Sausage and Vidalia was delicious and the garlic knots were sublime. The knots themselves had the texture of a soft pretzel like you'd get at a ballgame, but covered in garlic butter and parmesan. With nacho cheese and marinara to dip them into, they made a great appetizer.
What I didn't like: It is in Ownsboro. Not that I don't like Owensboro, I do. It is just not a direction my family goes often (although we did go 3 times in one month, and all 3 times we ate here).
What the kids liked: The garlic knots. I think they each got their own order of them the last time we were there. Aidan particularly liked their cheese pizza.
Budget: If we lived closer to Owensboro, we would go there quite often. The by the slice option is economical, and handy for a lunchtime meal. Dinner too for that matter.
I've been told of other places to try in Owensboro, but I'm going to have a hard time passing this place up if I'm in the area.
