Talarico’s

This is the place to go to get a slice of pizza that is bigger than your head, bigger than a football, bigger than some of the skirts worn by their servers….you get the point. The pizza is big.

Neighborhood/s: West Seattle

Food: Perhaps you’ve heard about the pizza slices–they are large. And at Talarico’s happy hour you can get a 14″ slice (I told you!) for $4.00. It’s essentially like getting 3 slices of pizza for $4, which is pretty freaking awesome as long as you have not eaten for many hours and don’t plan on eating again. The slices are not just sizable, but also pretty darn tasty. My favorite is The Sinatra; it’s spicy enough to make you swoon, just like old Blue Eyes himself. There are also other HH snacks to suit your fancy. The Three Cheese Artichoke dip for $6.00 is creamy and cheesy and everything nice.

Drinks:  Draft beer  is $3.50, well drinks are $4.50, and house wine is $5.00. Not bad at all.

Atmosphere: In the past I’ve been to Talarico’s in the later, not-so-happy hours and the place is usually pretty lively. It just so happens the day I went in to review the happy hour the atmosphere was a little more deflated than usual. Perhaps it was just the earlier time frame, but the music selection was depressing (soft rock/country) and there was a very strong stench of bleach and burning wafting through the restaurant/bar.  It wasn’t the most glamorous of scenes, but all that went unnoticed once I had consumed most of my colossal sized pizza slice.

Service: Good. As previously mentioned some of the female servers are scantily clad. That could be a good thing or not–you decide.

The Happiest Hours: 3-6pm and 11pm-1am EVERY DAY.

I’m giving Talarico’s a rating of 4 olives. I am only docking them one olive because of the sad energy that was happening when I went in for happy hour. Technically the slices should compensate for any shortcomings (did I mention they’re huge?), but I will be true to my criteria.
