Bottoms Up {Top Five Favorite Things}

by - 12:21 PM

This gem, well known to Richmonders, is Bottoms Up. It's located on Dock and 17th in the Bottom and is right next to the Canal Club.

Isn't that mural great? I just love it. It's right across the street.

People not native to this area would ask what KIND of pizza Bottom's Up is so famous for. Well, that's what makes it different. It's not New York or Chicago style. 
They use a from scratch thick sourdough crust and have dubbed it "Richmond Style" pizza. 
It's the, folks.

However, it's not just their pizza that's amazing. In fact, while I love their pizza, the rest of their menu is equally drool-worthy. 

Here's a list of my top five favorite things at Bottoms Up: 

 1. Shockhoe Bottom Burger (Pictured above)
Listen folks, this burger is LEGIT. Slightly grilled fresh bun with handmade patties and all the typical fixings. YUM. It normally comes with their seasoned fries (which, let me just say, will cause unexpected noises to erupt from your mouth) but since the burger was already a veer off of the "good eating", I ordered a side salad instead. 

2. Spinach Salad
This is my favorite salad in town. It's huge, and has spinach, mushrooms, bacon, egg, tomatoes, and homemade croutons. I usually get it with honey mustard dressing.

{Side note- all of their dressings are made in house from scratch. That's right, from scratch!!}

3. Goat in the Garden Pizza
This bad boy is topped with goat cheese, spinach, tomatoes, and roasted garlic. Get a side of parmesan peppercorn salad dressing to dip that bad boy in, and you can thank me later. 

4. Dock Street Club
This is one of those meals served best at lunch and will seriously bring you back. It's sort of like a wedge salad, sometimes you just really want a club sandwich. Well, the Dock Street Club delivers. Their bacon, by the way, might make you curse your mother. (Might.) It's also served with fries but they will sub for a side salad if you ask. :)

5. Hawaiian Pizza
Pineapples and ham, right? Yep. Except they use a white sauce for this bad boy and it will blow your mind with the deliciousness. You will have all the feels if you get a side of ranch for this guy. (Though, to be fair, it's damn good on it's own.)

That's all for today, folks. 

As always, leave me some comment love!
