Initial Visit: February 23rd, 2014
Description: The beginning of a long day full of unexpected traveling.
Davis Bros is one of those local places that everyone seems to love but one I had never tried until 2014. That is until a bunch of us had a work meeting and then decided to get food afterwards. That lead us to going to Davis Bros pizza based on Eli’s suggestion.
We rolled up in the late afternoon to an empty restaurant. As seems to be my luck, we always seem to get to places that are in a lull between meals. The three of us grabbed a booth and got to looking over the menu. If memory serves me right, I told Matt and Eli to order whatever they wanted and I will go along with it as I was new to this place and sometimes I just like to take a backseat to things instead of always being in charge. What Eli and Matt ordered, I don’t recall except the sausage on it was not sausage I like.
I will be the first to claim ignorance on pizza toppings despite being a pizza lover. When it comes to sausage, there is the good kind that I like and the bad kind that I don’t like. The one I don’t like is the one that resembles ground hamburger. For whatever reason that I can’t explain, I am not a fan of it but alas, that is what came on our pizza. Aside from the pizza being littered with those faux pas sausage chunks, it was a decent pizza. Not one that I would drool over if someone mentioned “Davis Bros” in my presence. I don’t mean that to sound too harsh as I am willing to give them another try, just without sausage on the next one. (And yes, after writing this post I did Google the difference between pizza sausages to avoid that mistake in the future.)
What I do like is that this place lead to a long and entertaining night with Eli and Matt up in the Quad Cities. What exactly happened up there in the Isle of Capri Casino is a story for another day. I will say it ended with Eli being 56’d by Security and us driving home at like 2am. If you know that code 56 is, then you can guess what happened. 😛
P.S. – Davis Bros. does sell frozen pizzas in the local markets around this area. Maybe that’s what people rave about. So, if you can’t make it to the restaurant, you can always pick up a frozen one to try at home.
