Bombfire is a delightfully unusual place, funky and eclectic, creative and open, sometimes crowded, always comfortable and welcoming. This was my second visit to Bombfire but my first time to eat. We were a table of six (among many other full tables) but we never waited for service, whether to order our food or get additional drinks.
I love that they offer a gluten-free pizza crust AND nondairy cheese AND vegan Italian sausage - try finding any of those ingredients within a hundred-mile radius.
Tom, the owner, is friendly and seems to befriend all the guests. Most in my group were regulars there and we all felt at home, easy and comfortable. We must have stayed five hours(?)

As it turns out, it's not a good place for a business discussion - it's too lively for that, but we had time for drinks, appetizers, a nice pause, and then a slow, wonderful dinner - and even a birthday dessert. I love not being rushed through a meal just because the restaurant wants to seat another party. Bombfire, plus Tom and his crew, are doing a lot of things right.

Looks like hippie hang out from the 70s. Small cozy warmed by a fire lots of old collectibles everywhere
The pizza is fantastic done in an fire oven many gourmet like combinations
On the weekends there's usually someone there with a guitar singing it makes it such a unique and fun atmosphere!
Every time I've been there the owner is working at the bar he remembers people well and they into only have one waitress who really knows how to work her space.
In the summer it looks like they have an outdoor patio that might be fun to sit in.

We had a fantastic meal, seated with total strangers who were fun, engaging and thoroughly enjoyable. Eclectic atmosphere. Try the stuffed mushrooms and gobbledygook pizza. Dan Peart was performing original and cover songs, a great artist.

Everything was awesome. Great whimsical atmosphere. Stuffed Jalapenos and pizza were both excellent. Friendly staff.

Unless you've had someone tell you about the place, it's not likely you'd go in. Unique is a good word for the decor; funky might be better. However - if you're looking for great pizza (and recognizing that that means many things to different people) you should give it a try. Wonderful thin crust pizza with good sauces (we've done tomato and pesto) and the right amount of chewy cheese. The ingredients are local. All the wines are from Iowa and interesting. Net - worth a drive (we saw a number of Iowa cars from a few counties away, Illinois you can't tell).
