Following the path of Uncle Joe’s and Radio City Pizza, Evel Pie has arrived on Fremont East with pies, beer and late hours, but this time around, the pizza is served amid a mini-shrine to everyone’s favorite daredevil, Evel Knievel.
Golden Tiki owner Branden Powers has teamed with Knievel's’ son Kelly, plus restaurateur Jeff Fine and Seth Schorr, chairman of the Downtown Grand for the venture, packed to the walls with Knievel memorabilia.
The rectangular casual restaurant features stools at the bar, tables near the front entrance and large booth seating towards the rear. They’ve also added an original 1976 Atari arcade game, Stunt Cycle and a 1977 Knievel pinball machine. Guests can also play much more modest, old-school games like Tic-Tac-Toe.
On the menu, slices are priced between $4 for the "Cheesy Rider," up to $5.50 for a "specialty" choice, that can include toppings like their bacon "Man Candy," barbecue pulled pork, "Rattlesnake Sausage" and "Daiya Vegan Cheese." Full pies include the $28 "Goblin" and the $26 "Snake River."
Also available, "Evel's Hot Pocket Rocket Calzones" for $11 and for $7 a choice of "House" or "Classic Caesar" salads. Domestic beer is $4, with a pitcher priced at $13 and a soda costs $3.
