"Pizza to Write Home About!"

Two friends and I recently lunched at West First. Each of us ordered different pizzas and I placed a to-go pizza order for my husband. All four pizzas were "something to write home about!" Crust, toppings, serving temperatures exceptional! Simply delicious! Key lime pie was pure purr-fection (I'm a... read more

Two friends and I recently lunched at West First. Each of us ordered different pizzas and I placed a to-go pizza order for my husband. All four pizzas were "something to write home about!" Crust, toppings, serving temperatures exceptional! Simply delicious! Key lime pie was pure purr-fection (I'm a cat lady). Umm, is that West First pizza I smell?

Everything at First West is great. The pizza is the best in town. It is in a great location, just off Main St. in Hendersonville, N. C.

We enjoyed eating here for lunch while on vacation in Hendersonville with our extended family.Since we were a group of 11, we had to sit at two separate tables when we arrived at a busy time. My husband and I enjoyed the unexpected pleasure of eating with just our ten year old granddaughter at our table! My BLT with avocado... More

Best Margarita Pizza ever. Crust was thin & awesome taste from their wood fired grill. Would recommend reservations on the weekends in the summer.

Eclectic menu. I believe this was the best meal I had in Hendersonville. The drinks are excellent and the service was great. Super busy and no reservations taken so be prepared to wait.

We eat regularly at West First and enjoy it every time. The pizzas, from the simple but very tasty Margherita to the spicy Southwest, are wonderful. Combined with the reasonably priced and delicious salads, this makes for a memorable meal. Other dishes are good as well, in particular the seafood dishes. The staff are attentive and relaxed. It's a casual... More

I will admit it--I am a pizza snob! We used to get decent pizza in the northeast (the New York influence), but since moving south we have found all pizza to be mediocre at best. So imagine my surprise when we found this pizza in Hendersonville NC! It was absolutely perfect and very similar to the best pizza I have... More

We enjoyed West First for the first time but plan to go back again! They use quality ingredients from local sources when possible. The staff is friendly even though they have lots of running to keep things moving! We ordered the local charcuterie for starters - a very nice selection of cheeses. We moved on to the main course of... More

This restaurant has a setting that reminds you of eating in the Village in New York. The menu has sandwiches, salads, and wood fire pizzas that are so unique and delicious. Wait staff is knowledgeable and friendly.

I've ate pizza around the world and this place knows how to make it. Let me first mention that if u aren't there by 6 p.m you may want to call ahead or go later. We were there at 5 and watched it fill up fast! We started with caprese and chorizo / bacon soup, both were great. Then we... More
