You Must Try Danny Mac’s Pizza in Louisville, Kentucky
This is National Pizza Week and I have decided to celebrate here at WBKR.com by sharing some of my favorite pizza places in and around the tristate area. Over the weekend, I was in Louisville for the KDCO 6th and 7th Region Dance Competition and got the chance to eat at Danny Mac's. Friday night, I told my friend Brian that I wanted pizza. He instantly suggested Danny Mac's and called it "a must." And he was right! We ate at the Mellwood Art Center location and, I must confess, I am now properly ADDICTED. Here's why!
Take a look at our "appetizer!" These are Danny Mac's Cracksticks!
Here's how they're described on Danny Mac's menu- 8 baked breadsticks smothered in Garlic Butter and Parmesan. Served with a side of pizza sauce for dipping. As you can see from the photo, "smothered" is an understatement. The Cracksticks are literally swimming (like a doughy Michael Phelps) in a pool of garlic butter and they are DELICIOUS! Earlier, I put the word appetizer in quotes and I did that because you could easily make a $5.99 meal out of these sticks. They're insanely good!
Of course, I usually always get a side salad when I order a pizza. Danny Mac's served up this . . .
It's an affordably-priced "smaller" version of their House Salad. It was $3.99.
And, then, of course, the main dish arrived (within minutes, by the way). We had our pizza within about ten to fifteen minutes of sitting down. We went in thirty minutes before closing on a snowy night and the staff was in full "turn and burn" mode. But we didn't care. I had just driven an hour and a half. Brian had just played a tennis match. We were starving!
Brian really wanted a simple pepperoni pizza and that's what we ordered. Honestly, that's a great way to gauge how good a pizza place really is. Order a pepperoni pizza and see how it stacks up to others you've had. Well, without a doubt, Danny Mac's delivered (pardon the pun).
At Danny Mac's, it's really all about the pizza. The restaurant itself has a dive-bar feel. There's little artwork on the walls. There aren't a lot bells and whistles with the atmosphere. The plates don't match. Your dine-in options are pretty simple- booth? table? The star of this production is without a doubt . . . Danny Mac's Pizza!
