Old Chicago Pizza & Taproom, a national casual dining restaurant known for its handcrafted pizza and vast craft beer selection, announced today that it has opened its first location in Dallas at 5319 Mockingbird Station, Suite 100. The restaurant will create nearly 120 jobs for the area. To celebrate the opening in Dallas, Old Chicago Pizza & Taproom has partnered with local charity, CitySquare. One dollar from every Chicago 7™ and Meat Me™ specialty pizza ordered after 3 p.m. this month through January 4 will be donated to the organization in support of the fight against hunger and poverty.
“CitySquare has a long history of serving the city of Dallas as well as the region and we’re proud to partner with them to raise funds to help fight the root causes of poverty through service, advocacy, and friendship,” said Mike Mrlik, President of Old Chicago Pizza & Taproom. “We can’t think of a better way to celebrate our opening than to invest in the well-being of our newfound community. We look forward to introducing everyone in Dallas to our freshly, handcrafted pizza and diverse menu of world-class craft beers this month while helping out an incredible organization such as CitySquare.”
Old Chicago Pizza & Taproom offers an expansive menu ranging from shareable appetizers and fresh salads to taproom classics including hearty burgers and handcrafted pizzas. Since its inception, Old Chicago Pizza & Taproom has been committed to serving the highest quality pizza and craft beer the right way. Old Chicago Mockingbird will feature a variety of Texas craft beers from breweries such as Deep Ellum Brewing Company and Rahr & Sons Brewing Company. Also, among the variety of 14 specialty pizzas that guests may choose from, these two most popular pizzas will benefit CitySquare:
Chicago 7– Pepperoni, Italian sausage, red onions, black olives, green peppers, sliced mushrooms and signature house pizza sauce.
