Listen: Clint Gray tells the story of Slim & Husky’s Pizza Beeria: A new restaurant in Oak Park: Slim & Husky’s Pizza Beeria is a Nashville-based chain run by three childhood friends who dreamed up the concept inside an old garage in 2015. They spent two years testing pizza recipes in that garage and then launched their restaurant with great success. Their Oak Park grand opening marks their 5th location and is the latest Black-owned business to join the Oak Park resurgence.
The restaurant’s menu includes a variety of signature artisan pizzas, build-your-own pizza options, salads, gourmet cinnamon rolls, and locally brewed beers. Its COVID operating hours will be from 11:00 AM to 8:00 PM, with full operating hours eventually being from 11:00 AM to 9:00 PM. The Oak Park location will have approximately 2,600 square feet of indoor space for dining, kitchen, and prep areas. The total seating capacity amounts to about 50 inside and 50 outside on the patio. The restaurant also offers catering, take out services, and delivery through third party vendors.
The Oak Park location also features custom artwork from both local and Nashville-based African-American artists including Milton Bowens, Bamr the Artist, Jupiter, Taylor Pannell, XPayne, and Dough Joe.
