I liked the pizza. But, I will never eat there again. The middle-aged blonde bar tender (with the cheap back tattoos) always has a scowl on her face, is rude, and just bad at her job. Going out to eat is a treat in our family and I would rather not deal with rude and poor service.

After a couple of years driving by and wondering what Dry River was about, we stopped in a couple of weeks ago and again tonight. We love this cozy, warm vibed place with the great wood fired pizza. Shrooms is our favorite so far. Also love the wondrously perfect homemade balsamic vinaigrette...I'm pretty picky about salad dressing. Delicious bruschetta too.... More

After visiting several highly touted Tucson pizzerias and being disappointed, we landed upon Dry River Co. The pizza (we ordered The Traditional) was great and we shared a greek salad that was also quite good. The staff was friendly and the manager stopped by our table to check on us. They had a small but good selection of beers on... More

This is my favorite pizza place. The mushrooms are amazing. Great ambiance too. Pizzas are done in a brick oven.

We're new to tucson and want to find a go to pizza place so we gave dry rive a try. It was ok, staff was not friendly and almost put out that we were there making them work on a Friday night. The pizza was good but not anything terrific. We're still looking for that pizza place

I went solo for lunch the first time and the place was real quiet. The pizza was fine, but the owner had such a cocky attitude that I was put off, especially when it didn't look like he had much business. And it always looked this was at lunchtime. I had to wait around the bar area to get a... More

Wanting to try different pizza, my Wife & I opted to try the Dry River Co today at noon. I knew where it was but could not find it. Ah, the third time passing the hand painted wooden door sign on the lawn, under a tree, I got it! Really non descript. We were happy, but somewhat confused, that the... More

Tried this restaurant on a whim as it is tucked away in the corner of a parking lot next to a popular Mexican restaurant. WOW. We love thin crust, brick oven pizza and are so happy to have found Dry River! My wife compared this place to Grimaldi's near the U of A which has been our go-to place for... More

My son and I ate a Friday night dinner here. We each ordered pasta - he had the sausage and pepper pasta and I had cheese ravioli with Alfredo sauce. Both were excellent. The pasta is homemade and the seasoning was perfect. Both came with a large slice of fresh garlic bread. The portions weren't huge but it was filling.... More

Unbelievable.... the owner could care a less about customer satisfaction... tried to talk to him about poor food and he just shrugged his shoulders and said to come back and try something else next time and walked away - so rude... never go there! The worst food and even worse service - yuck! He won't make it 6months!
