Takeout salad and sandwich hit the spot

Food was good quality, not fancy, but exactly as expected. The place is packed in the evening. Takeout was easy.

Great food for a reasonable price! Obviously a popular hangout, as it was always crowded with friends and families. Worth the wait though! Try and get there early.

This is one of my favorite places, well worth the drive, we have tried many different dishes and have never been disappointed. The entry is a little strange as there are benches on both sides of a narrow hallway and you have to shuffle through peoples legs to get inside. That coupled with the fact that there is usually a...

Normally I wouldn't bother writing about a restaurant in which we were seated but then left but here we go. When we arrived on Sunday afternoon around 5 or so, the parking lot was packed, front and back. I walked in, my wife and kids were in the parking lot doing something for a few seconds in the car and... More

4 of us visited Sidestreet Pizza in Tryon on a Sunday afternoon. The restaurant opens at 3 and we drove about an hour to get there and there was already a line before 3. However, when the doors opened, we were quickly seated and received prompt service. We ordered the Italian nachos and cheesy garlic bread for appetizers. The nachos... More

The food here is both very good and very authentic. The first time I ate here (the first of very many times over the past 10 years) I couldn't help but remark about how much the sauces tasted like my grandmother's home made sauces. Specialties like their eggplant and veal parmesans; veal cutlet with lemon; and specialty pastas are very... More

I really wish that I could give an excellent review. If you had asked me to review this when I was a teenager and grew up in Tryon and this place still really was on a sidestreet, it would have gotten 5 stars. I've returned several times over the years as I come home to visit and it just isn't... More

We wish could give glowing review but truth is the food here is ok but tending on the average side. It has a large clientele and desirable elevated location with average parking and often, above average wait lines. Noisy in the bar area on left side where one can also have food service in addition to the restaurant area. Cars... More

We have eaten at sidestreet pizza numerous times and the food is always top notch. Their pizza is perfectly baked with a perfect crunchy crust. Not too thin but not thick and doughy. They have excellent lasagna and the garlic cheesy bread is superb.
