This was our second stop as we headed south to visit all 3 Pizza Port locations. They had a more extensive selection than San Clemente. They had 11 of their own beers on tap including cask-conditioned Frank Double IPA and cask-conditioned Simco Pale Ale on the hand pumps. I give them a 5.0 for selection because they had 2 outstanding beers on the hand pumps when we were there. They were also selling bottles of Frank by the 4-pack or the 24-pack case.
We had their BBQ chicked pizza for lunch and it was quite good. The BBQ suace they layed down was spicy and sweet and did not taste like some cheap store-bought stuff. The service was excellent as well with bartender being very patient with our large order. This was the most like your average pizza parlor of all of the Pizza Port locations. There was a pop warner football team watching their game on the big screen and eating pizza while we were there. The atmosphere was pleasant and the people friendly (except for the jerk off who cut in line at the bar in front of us). Of the 3 this has to be my number one since they had the best beer selection of the day. Hand pumps have a special place in my heart (and on my taste buds).
One thing that stands out about all the locations is that they never charged us full menu price. We had a few tasters and they always threw in a few extras at no charge. And this happened at all 3 locations. I like it when a brewery is not stingy with their beer and they just love that people enjoythier beers.
