This is my favorite pizza restaurant in this area. Their signature sauce provides unique tomato flavor with a slight spicy kick which I fall in love with.

As the name suggests they use a coal fire to cook with. We had three pizzas for takeout, Cheese, Pepperoni, and Gluten Free. All pies were of the thin crust variety. First, let me say that the gluten free was not very good. However, we...More

The happy hour was an amazing deal. For about $10 I got a blue moon draft and a 12 inch margarita pizza. The staff was very friendly and attentive. Would definitely return!

Coal Fire Consistently serves great fresh pizza by a team of attentive servers. The restaurant is consistently clean, with reasonable prices. Highly recommend their caprese, Cajun sandwich, brisket sandwich and classic pizza. Wings are oddly good here too.

I had the cheddar steak and cheese with fries. They were delicious. The bread tasted really fresh and the steak was top round and amazing... not what you typically find on a steak and cheese. The service was quick and everyone was really nice.
