Solid option for Lilburn/Stone Mtn. locals
After four years of living in the area - and desperately needing a place to watch the World Cup as I'm temporarily living sans television - I finally sauntered into the Stone Mountain Pizza Cafe to score some pizza and beer and get my World Cup fix. I'm kicking myself slightly for not heading there sooner. Pizza is fairly good (I've had Veggie Combo and Mountain Combo slices). All the essentials - crust, cheese, sauce and toppings - are done well. Pretzels, made of pizza dough and served in a bowl with a small pool of garlic butter, are very addictive. Chicken-philly sandiwich is also very good. The Cafe has a full-service bar, including very reasonably priced beer, though not offering great variety on tap (Dos Equis being the only import I recall seeing on tap; they do have many bottled offerings). Bringing all these goodies to you is a very perky, eclectic, and friendly staff. The vibe here just really stands out compared to most other local restaurants.
Big draw for me is the large flat screen TV in the bar area, with other TV's in logical spots throughout the dining area. The staff will accomodate most programming requests.. They also show Braves games and other games of interest. Keep in mind the bar area is separate from most of the dining area, and it's not loud at all.
Bottom line is there's better pizza in the Atlanta area, but in the homogenous Lilburn/Stone Mountain area, it's hard to beat this place for overall quality of food and service based on my many trips there. I definitely recommend it for locals.
