“Better than expected”
Review of Evo Pizza

Evo Pizza
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: $7 - $15
Cuisines: Pizza, Bar
Description: EVO (Extra Virgin Oven) Pizzeria is the wood-fired dream of Matt McIntosh and Ricky Hacker. Matt and Ricky met while working in the illustrious kitchen at FIG in downtown Charleston in 2003. The pair spent the better part of a year forming the concept for a wood-fired pizza shop that would focus on local ingredients. In 2005 they flew the coop to start EVO. The first incarnation was a mobile wood-fired pizza oven - in other words, a fancy trailer - that they used for catering. Turns out, people really like fancy trailer pizza. It became apparent that the concept was ready for a brick & mortar restaurant, and they found a perfect home on East Montague Avenue in North Charleston, part of the up-and-coming Park Circle area. In 2007, EVO Pizzeria fired up its ovens for the public, and hasn't stopped since. We come to work at EVO every day to bring fun, delicious food and drink to our community. We source locally and regionally because we're proud to be here. We cook with love because we love to cook. And who doesn't love pizza?

A trendy little pizza place in historic North Charleston. Excellent sweet tea. Pizzas are served personal size and are made with all homemade Ingredients. The cheese and sausage are made fresh right there. Get the Pork Trifecta. The dessert chocolates are overpriced but oh so good.

We ate here on 5/12/2012. We had their pistachio pesto pizza which was probably the best pizza I have ever had. Now this is not to compare to a Chicago "big meaty pizza"; my comments are merely based on overall tast. WOW!. And additionally we had their wood fired Mac & Cheese which I would put up against anyones'. It was also great. All in all, a great dinner; highly recommended.

This is a great place. The pizza is the best we have had since we lived in Europe. The garlic, cheese and rukola pizza was superb and the three pigs pizza was also great. Good serive, good craft beers on tap and good prices.

We live in the area and this place is the best for more unconventional pizza. It was rated among the best pizzerias in the whole usa. You know it's gonna be good when you see heirloom tomatoes out on the counter :)))

Visited EVO yesterday with family. We had been talking about it for awhile and finally made the trip up to North Charleston. I love the place. It's in an old neighborhood that is coming back. The menu is very short. I love that!!!! The beer list is much larger than the lunch menu. We decided on cold beer and the three of us split a Margherita and a Pork Trifecta. The crust is out of this world !!! Simple tomato sauce that is very, very fresh. The house made sausage is to die for ! What a perfect pizza pie. I don't know that it can be done any better. The wood fired oven makes it !!!! Our server was Beth. What a gem. She was very helpful and knowledgeable. She did her job extremely well and made us feel very welcome. We talked to Executive Chef Matt for a couple of minutes to convey our "compliments to the chef" This place is outstanding and well worth a visit. With this quality pizza out there, I just don't know why people settle for some of the junk out there !!!! Do yourself a favor................GO VISIT EVO !!!!! It is a little loud, but most places are now.
