Greenville Avenue Pizza Company Opens Second Location

Article and photography by DWDJ Contributor Kate Sherga

Those of you familiar with Lower Greenville can attest to the late night siren's call of pizza cravings... and how it's practically impossible to resist the heavenly smell wafting out from Greenville Avenue Pizza Company. Once you give in, there's no turning back. Your appetite for GAPCo's pizza is only going to spread to all hours of the day. Well, East Dallasites can rejoice, because after 10 years and much anticipation, GAPCo has officially opened their second location!

The newest location can be found off Peavy Road and Garland Road in the White Rock Lake area. Same delicious menu, same top-notch ingredients. And if you feel a late night pizza craving coming on, they’re open until 1am, plus they deliver! If you’re thinking this sounds like a dangerous combination, you’re absolutely right… and it’s about to get even more mouth-watering.

One thing you NEED to discover are GAPCo’s appetizers, because as soon as I tried them, I felt like a whole new world opened up to me (I’m talking full-on magic carpet, Aladdin style). Between the meatball sliders, pizza poppers, mozzarella cheese bites, toasted raviolis, and the wings… Oh my goodness. The wings.


Buffalo wings are the obvious choice, but don’t overlook the lemon pepper wings because that tangy, perfectly zesty flavor will change your world. Trust me, this will seriously alter your strategy when you place your order here.


Choose your appetizers wisely though, because the pizza here is no joke. If you’re a pizza purist and you like simple but outstanding flavors, you have to try the Margherita pizza. It is one beautiful specimen. Seeing them drizzle the olive oil and sprinkle it with hand-grated Parmesan might have made my heart skip a beat.



I asked the owners, Sammy and Molly, what their favorite pizzas are and they said the Supreme with jalapeños and the Pesto Sciutto, respectively. Both are solid recommendations, but I have to say the Pesto Sciutto was a stand-out winner to me! This one was like a “best of Italy” tour, bite by bite, with the ultimate combination of pesto, roma tomatoes, fresh garlic, arugula, and prosciutto.


The people’s choice award goes to the Five Cheese pizza. Anyone out there who thinks cheese pizza is “plain” or “boring” will have to shut their mouth because they’ll be too busy devouring this pizza. This is like a cheese lover’s symphony of flavors composed of Mozzarella, feta, Parmesan, ricotta, and my favorite, goat cheese. Honestly, this is what cheese pizza should be!


Everything is genuine, from the tongue-in-cheek “pizza slayers” serving up your pies to the fantastic menu items made in-house with high quality ingredients and lots of love! If there’s one thing to take away from GAPCo (other than copious leftovers) it’s simply this: cool pizza by cool people.

The new location is open Monday – Sunday: 11:00AM – 1:00AM.

Make Healthy Choices Simple With The Halal Guys

The Halal Guys recently opened their newest Dallas area location on lower Greenville, the third in the area. The company has plans to expand further in the DFW, with the next being in north Plano in the coming weeks. The company began as a street cart in NY and now has grown to locations throughout the US and worldwide. Talk about a success story! The Halal Guys is an excellent choice for those who want to eat healthy without breaking the bank. Wondering what exactly Halal means? I had that very question a few years back upon seeing it on a restaurant door, and googled away. I also recently wrote an article for Richardson Living explaining just that. It introduces the concept and talks a bit more about the Richardson location of Halal Guys and explains their menu.  The menu is the same at all locations of The Halal Guys. You go through the line, and build your own wrap or platter. Fill it with your choice of gyro, chicken, or combo, then load it up with toppings and sauce

A Tribute to El Palacio of Mexican Food, Huntsville, Alabama

This week a large piece of my childhood will be laid to rest. I know you think I'm being overly dramatic, but if you've ever had an iconic place where you've spend a large chunk of your life, I hope you'll understand where I'm coming from on this.  I have literally 24 other restaurant story deadlines to meet, but today the only thing on my mind is the news I received yesterday. I found out by a fluke (an owner's response to a Facebook review I'd posted years ago), and ended up having to be the bearer of bad news to my family and friends who also hold this establishment near and dear to their hearts.  The first restaurant I ever loved is closing their doors this week. This is my farewell. El Palacio opened in Huntsville 51 years ago, in 1966. Jimmy and Nonie McClure opened the very first location in Amarillo in 1962 in a remodeled gas station, after the Mexican food they added to their steakhouse menu started selling like wildfire. They wanted to

Get Saucy at Razzoo's Cajun Cafe Plano

I've long been a fan of Razzoo's Cajun Cafe, a Texas born restaurant that features scratch-made Lousiana favorites. All locations are locally owned, and the 26-year-old restaurant has most of its locations in Texas, with one in NC, and some new spots TBA in the near future. Some of my favorite fried indulgences at Razzoo's are the "Rat Toes" on their appetizer menu. If you love a bit of spice, ignore the name and order up some of these jalapenos stuffed with shrimp, crab, then battered and fried, served with a Cajun Buttermilk sauce for dipping. And that's just scratching the slippery surface on all of the house-made delicious sauces at Razzoo's. National Hot & Spicy Food Day is Saturday, August 19, so in anticipation of that awesome food holiday, Razzoo's  invited us out for our own little sauce tasting, AKA Delia' Paradise. I was NOT aware that Razzoo's cooks up FIFTEEN different sauces in house, and once I found this out, I cou
