Nick’s Slice of Brooklyn: The Best Pizza Place in Panama City Beach?
Any time we travel, Kevin and I try to find the best local pizza places. That's one of the many reasons we love New York City, for instance. The Big Apple is home to some of the best "mom and pop" pizza shops in the world. So, over the weekend in Panama City Beach, Florida, we decided to consult TripAdvisor and Yelp to try and find the "must have" pizza in PCB. And, thankfully, we stumbled across Nick's Slice of Brooklyn Pizzeria & Bar, which brings a taste of New York to the panhandle. Have you ever eaten here?
When I looked up the "Top Ten Places in PCB" on TripAdvisor, Nick's ranked #1. In fact, a quick click-through revealed that Nick's was also the 16th-ranked restaurant of ALL the restaurants in town. As you can see from the sign, Nick's has been voted Best of the Bay the last two years.
I think one of the biggest selling points (I'm sure for vacationing families) is that you can order pizza by the slice. You actually don't have to buy the entire pie. Pie, by the way, is a New Yorker's way of saying "pizza". On our visit, Kevin got two slices of pepperoni. I got a slice of Nick's Margherita pizza and a slice of pepperoni. I always try to get a slice of pepperoni anytime I visit a pizza place for the first time. I think that's the best way to gauge how good (or not good) a pizza place is.
Well, it wasn't good. It was GREAT!
And, if you're looking for an appetizer, Nick's is known around the panhandle for its garlic knots! When you place your order at the counter, you will see a huge container of knots, coated in garlic and cheese.
And, here's something cool that country music fans will appreciate. Nick's has a wall of fame full of photos of celebrities who've eaten there. That wall includes some notable and iconic country music stars- Dolly Parton, George Jones, Wynonna and Billy Ray Cyrus!
Speaking of music, I have to also give a shout out to the playlist. During our visit we heard "Love to Love You, Baby" by Donna Summer, "Copacabana" by Barry Manilow and "It's Raining Men" by The Weather Girls. The playlist was on fire Saturday night.
If you're planning a visit to PCB and you're craving pizza, Nick's Slice of Brooklyn Pizzeria & Bar is located at 13528 Front Beach Road in Panama City Beach, Florida.
Two questions for you: 1) Have you eaten at Nick's? 2) Do you have any other pizza recommendations in Panama City Beach?
