Evelyn's Big Italian: Soooo good

My wife and I went to Evelyn's Big Italian in downtown Fairfield for the first time last night.  We payed about $13 for a slice of pizza and drink each.  Does that sound expensive?  Oh yeah.  Their prices kept us away for a while, until we had their pizza that someone else bought.  Looking at the size of the slices, we figured it was worth a try.
That is one huge piece of pizza!  (BTW, that is not my hand, nor is that my
piece of pizza.  I don't take pictures of my food, I let other people take
pictures of their food and steal them with the help of Google
Then we went there.  I don't know why, but the slices from the takeout we had were maybe half the size of the slices we had when we went there in person.  The two slices we bought were nearly the size of a whole pizza.  And it was goooooood.  Destree had a slice of their pepperoni.  A classic and safe bet.  I had a slice of their Louisianan pizza.  It had bbq chicken, garlic, and mozzarella.  It easily could have been the second best pizza I've ever had (The top honor goes to the Chicken Q at Pizzas 'n Cream in Point Arena.  When you factor in gas, it's about an $80-$100 pizza.  Yeah, I'll do it again.  Restaurant overlooks the Pacific Ocean.  It's AWESOME!)

Anyhow, back to Evelyn's Big Italian.  The food was great. Price was great.  Fun little place downtown with seating inside and outside.  Good service.  If you like pizza, it's worth it.  If you don't like pizza, then you cannot possibly be human.  Check it out.  It's worth it.


  1. we love that place. we get the 26" cheese for our crew and they flip out over it. i've even got the 32" before. it barely gets in the front door. :-) great pizza!

  2. Nice! We had stayed away from it for so long, because the prices looked too expensive. We didn't realize how massive (and delicious) it was untii just recently. Kicking myself in the butt for that.
