First and foremost, the pizza at this very low-key and informal corner restaurant is delicious. Whether you are getting a simple cheese pizza or a masterpiece with about 2 pounds of toppings, you are in for a treat. Alongside this delicious food, you can often find quality beer as well. Although there isn’t too terribly much variety, you can still find up to 12 different beers on tap between the front counter and the back bar, which will often include Bell’s, Founder’s, Boulevard, and Schlafly. In bottles, you can find some Southern Tier, Rogue, Tallgrass, and some other random good brews. It can get crowded, especially when its still early enough for families but late enough for the drinking crowd. All in all, this place is worth visiting for the food and some beer.

Shakespeare’s is a great college pizza place. It probably has the best pizza in Missouri and is a must stop for anyone visiting. Very cool college hangout. With that being said, they don’t have a very extensive beer selection, maybe 8-12 beers on tap, and nothing that will blow you away. GREAT pizza, cool college bar, but not a huge beer selection.
This is what it is. A pizza place in the middle of a college town. Except for, the pizza is great (pepper cheese/pepperoni). It IS a college bar, once you accept this, it is a great place to be. Can be a little dark inside, and it is kid friendly (after taking mine there recently on a pass through 20 years after college) Beer selection is above average for a pizza joint, so you can get something that is drinkable if you desire.
Best pizza in missouri be far. On game day, there is no where else in the world that you wanna be. Expect maybe Farrot field. Great atmosphere, great food, great service, and cold beer. What else you need?
Close to the edge of Mizzou’s campus in downtown Columbia. Big place, but it fills up really fast. We went before noon on a Sunday and it was jammed- not surprising for a game weekend. The pizza is awesome. Pretty good rotating selection of bottles and taps- always a Boulevard or two or three on tap. A must-visit in Columbia, even for non-beer drinkers.
Wow, I didn’t know this place was listed here. Very exciting. Listen: Have you ever worked in a place and not been able to eat there anymore? Just the opposite happened to me when I worked at Shakes. I’ve eaten pizza in several different states and countries now, and I’m convinced this is the best pizza in the world. Yeah, some solid beers on tap and in the fridge, too. That was another nice thing about working there... Also very happy to find 2-Hearted here on my last visit.
