We make everything on premise - the dough, sauces, mozzarella and pasta. We have a full bar, weekly wine and beer tastings and specials daily. On Friday and Saturday nights we feature live music after 8:30 pm.Stop by and try some of the finest pizza Tucson has to offer.

After a couple of years driving by and wondering what Dry River was about, we stopped in a couple of weeks ago and again tonight. We love this cozy, warm vibed place with the great wood fired pizza. Shrooms is our favorite so far. Also love the wondrously perfect homemade balsamic vinaigrette...I'm pretty picky about salad dressing. Delicious bruschetta too. And we have found the staff to be very personable and fun to talk to. They have a great special Mondays through Wednesdays...$20 for appetizer, two salads,a pizza (or pasta) to split (there's plenty) and dessert (the homemade cookies were quite large and delish). Might become our favorite spot to sneak away to ....

After visiting several highly touted Tucson pizzerias and being disappointed, we landed upon Dry River Co. The pizza (we ordered The Traditional) was great and we shared a greek salad that was also quite good. The staff was friendly and the manager stopped by our table to check on us. They had a small but good selection of beers on tap and the $6 glass of cabernet was just fine. Excellent service and good food for a reasonable price! We'll go back!!!

This is my favorite pizza place. The mushrooms are amazing. Great ambiance too. Pizzas are done in a brick oven.

We're new to tucson and want to find a go to pizza place so we gave dry rive a try. It was ok, staff was not friendly and almost put out that we were there making them work on a Friday night. The pizza was good but not anything terrific. We're still looking for that pizza place

I went solo for lunch the first time and the place was real quiet. The pizza was fine, but the owner had such a cocky attitude that I was put off, especially when it didn't look like he had much business. And it always looked this was at lunchtime. I had to wait around the bar area to get a refill on my iced tea as the owner and other employee were hanging out in the kitchen.
My wife likes to make her own decisions so I reluctantly returned for another lunch. It was no better experience service-wise. Go somewhere that they appreciate your business.
