Tazza Delivers Downtown

When we lived in Historic Edgefield, we had fits trying to find local (not chain) eating establishments that delivered in the evenings. The food-delivery gods simply were not with us, either due to our ignorance or the vacuum of that service in East Nashville. We have not had any better luck since moving over to the North End, although in fairness, there are not as many established local eateries here as in East Nashville.

Nonetheless, we stumbled upon Tazza (on Church between 5th & 6th), which makes deliveries all the way to the North End, this past weekend when we got back from our Florida vacation too weary to think about active food pursuit. The menu is huge, and the food we’ve had from there was good, relative to the standard fast food chain deliveries. I thought their pizza was tasty, and I would order it again. The fajitas we had on another occasion were okay, except that they were mistakenly served with wild rice. I discarded my rice, which was fine since the actual fajita portions are more than enough. We were able to charge the food to our check card and leave a tip on the card receipt for the deliverer. Ah, convenience.

There are those nights when nobody feels like cooking, while going out–even for take-out–just doesn’t seem worth the effort. It’s those nights that having a decent delivery service readily available is tonic. Because the pickins are slim, Tazza is a viable alternative on such nights. But hopefully more delivery services are on the horizon for the Downtown area. We will have achieved some measure of big-citiness when that day arrives.

    Wow, now this is just creepy. I was thinking about making a post about this place.

    We’ve ordered from this place twice, now, including tonight.

    I’ve had the philly steak sandwich twice. It’s good stuff.

    When I lived at the Cumberland, that place was a godsend as so few restaurants are open at night downtown. However, I would have walked past that place 50 times to have House of Pizza at night! OOOH, House of Piiiiizzzzaaaa.
