I wasn't real pleased when Petra closed its Midtown location, but I am excited to try At's-A-Pizza, which opened in the Petra space at 1560 Union two weeks ago.
At's-A-Pizza is related to the restaurant of the same name in Collierville that closed a few years ago, but only sort of, according to owner Sam Rodriguez.
Rodriguez worked at the Collierville At's-A-Pizza, but he says he has changed the menu for this restaurant.
The menu is extensive and includes paninis, such as the Neapolitan with chicken breast, prosciutto, spinach, and provolone ($8.99); Italian dinners, from baked lasagna ($9.25) to eggplant parmigiana ($9.95); pasta dinners such as linguini with clam sauce ($11.95) and spaghetti and meatballs ($9.85).
There are strombolis, calzones, and sub sandwiches as well. And, of course, At's-A-Pizza offers pizza. Pizza prices start at $2.50 for a slice to $25.95 for an 18-inch specialty pizza.
Among the specialty pizzas are Bacon Cheeseburger, pork or chicken BBQ, Steak and Cheese, and Buffalo Chicken.
At's-A-Pizza runs a lunch special on weekdays, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Diners have six options, ranging from one slice of pizza, a salad, and a drink for $8.25 to a stromboli with two toppings and a drink for $8.75.
Rodriguez is working on a website for the restaurant now, so I scanned the menu for you:
At's-A-Pizza is open Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m.-9 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m.-10 p.m.; and Sunday 11 a.m.-7 p.m.
