AJ’s Sports Bar

1 Oct

Steph and I recently had a strong and mutual craving for AJ’s pizza. AJ’s Sports Bar is located in the front of Northrock Lanes and has been a constant of pizza goodness since I can remember. I believe their pizza recipe has not changed over the last 20 years.

AJ’s is your typical sports bar. There have many large TVs and sports memorabilia adorned on the walls. A few pool tables are also available for your enjoyment. Thanks to Wichita’s smoking ban(we are big fans of this if you couldn’t tell)  AJ’s is much more enjoyable than it used to be. I typically would rather not have a side of Marlboro with my pizza.

The last couple of times that I have had AJ’s pizza were at bachelor parties, one of them being my own. Unfortunately due to circumstances out of my control I was forced to lay of f the AJ’s following my bachelor party after things went terribly wrong that night…

As far as food goes at AJ’s most of their menu is your typical bar offerings, but where they make their mark is with the pizza. The crust is thin, yet has a unique flavor, while the cheese is generously loaded onto the pie. One other reason that AJ’s pizza distinguishes itself from others is the way they cut their round pizzas into square pieces. On this particular night we decided to try the new super pepperoni pizza. We knew we were in trouble when the waitress warned us that it was rather greasy. It turns out the super pepperoni pizza consists of sliced pepperoni on top of the cheese and a hidden treasure of pepperoni bits beneath the layer of cheese. And yes it is greasy, but delicious. We both thought it was too greasy and would probably stick to the regular pepperoni next time, but it never hurts to try new things.

So AJ’s pizza is still good after all the years, although with some of the newer pizza places are better in my opinion.

NOTE: It is my understanding that the super pepperoni pizza will soon become illegal under the conditions of Obamacare. So you need to get in there before Jan 1st so you can try some greasy goodness.

    We had the “regular” pepperoni on a recent Friday night after being caught in a rain storm at the KMC game. With a pitcher of beer, it was a perfect combination to ride out the storm.

    There is a certain passion about pizza,
    Formented beyond the dough and quagmired
    Into the unasailing ingredients
    Enraptured with history and highly admired
    And mouthing with a wry gradient.

    She came in through the bathroom window
    Protected by a silver spoon
    But now she sucks her thumb and wanders
    By the banks of her own lagoon

    Didn’t anybody tell her?
    Didn’t anybody see?
    Sunday’s on the phone to Monday,
    Tuesday’s on the phone to me

    You and Steph need to get to St. Louis immediately.
    Ask your mom about Pi Restaurant.
    Joe ranks it with the best of Chicago pizzas, and Joe knows his food.
