I was hanging out in Deep Ellum, watching some bands at a club down the street from Zini's (which used to be (or still is?) Franzini's) when I got hungry. I knew my options were a few places I could sit down and get service formal-restaurant-style, a couple of corporate franchise type places with predictable food I could get from any common suburb, OR I could grab a tasty slice from Zini's, conveniently scarf it down, and then head back to the show just in time to effectively skip the band I didn't care about and see the bands I came to see. Option three was a given. Zini's makes consistently great pizza, the sauce is tangy and somewhat sweet (in a good way) and the cheese and toppings are high quality. They are always refreshing their available ""by-the-slice"" pizzas, which is pretty necessary since they get steady customer traffic, even in relatively-dead Deep Ellum. A 2 topping slice runs $3, which is just fine for a quick, delicious snack from an urban center (most downtown pizza ranges from $3.25 to $4 a slice when you want more than just cheese on it). The drinks are cheap, too, which just adds to the oasis-from-your-music-club factor. I recommend a slice of pepperoni and jalapeno absolutely drenched in parmesan cheese and red pepper. The service is nice and prompt. I don't live close enough to ever utilize the delivery service, but when sitting in the restaurant they always seem to be processing orders and they appear to be pretty darn good at that, too.
