Charleston Edition: Slyce Pizza Company

SlyceSlyceOne huge difference between Morgantown and Charleston is the lack of a college presence. While that is sometimes a good thing, it also means restaurants aren't open as late to cater to that crowd. Charleston does have one lone restaurant that will cure those late-night munchies. Slyce is open 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. for lunch and then 4 p.m. to 4 a.m. for late-night.

SlyceAfter a night of drinking, adventures took my friend and me to Slyce. They have your typical pizza joint fare - salads, pies, calzones, wings, and subs. Instead of a typical pepperoni pizza, we opted for a Philly steak pizza: steak smothered in red onions, green peppers, mushrooms, mozzarella and provolone.

There was a ton of red onions and green peppers, which aren't really my favorite - but that's not their fault. Just pretty heavy-handed on those toppings. Was it the best pizza I have ever had? No. Was it the best pizza I could have that night? Yes. High marks for offering pizza late at night and for a not bad pie. Next time I'll opt for something a little less heavy on the onions/peppers.
