“Stumbled upon a great local pizzeria!”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

We were in Lexington for a few nights for a football weekend. The folks at our hotel recommended Malones Steakhouse to us - we got there to find a 75min. wait time and a very stuffy atmosphere. So we took a chance, shook up our Urban Spoon app and hit on the Original Brooklyn Pizza. It's not far, but it was nice to have mapquest to help us find it - it's in the corner of what appears to be a fairly run down old strip mall.

Immediately when we went in, we knew we hit on a local favorite - several young families were there already. We took a seat at the bar, and were promptly waited on. The only reason I didn't give 4 stars is because the bar didn't stock my favorite drink - Firefly vodka, and the cheesecake (which we were informed was not 'traditional' cheesecake') was pretty bad. Otherwise, it was EASILY 5 stars. Our bartender was great - the atmosphere was lots of fun (even for fans of the opposing team), and the pizza was AMAZING! Prices were great, portions were huge, and the drinks were stout.
