As a lover of the theatre, I appreciate a restaurant that has a great backstory to it – even if it is mostly made up. And if you haven’t been to Earl’s 377 Pizza out in Argyle, you’ve yet to experience one of the greatest restaurant stories of all time!
Earl’s is the unique brainchild of well-known local restaurateur, John ‘Sparky’ Pearson, who had the vision to turn the old Argyle Volunteer Fire Department into something truly special.
And ‘special’ is exactly what I would call Earl’s.
At Earl’s you’ll become a player in the story about a fictitious military vet who met his wife, Isabella, overseas in Italy and convinced her to move back to Texas with him only after promising to help her realize her dream of opening an Italian restaurant.
In the decor of the restaurant, you’ll notice the juxtaposition of Earl’s “good-ol’-boy” style and Isabella’s more refined Italian taste.
The story of Earl the veteran is much more than “just a story,” however. Earl’s 377 Pizza, as well as the remainder of the restaurants under the Radical Hospitality Group, have teamed up with Spirit of a Hero, a nonprofit that works to help veterans right here in North Texas. At their restaurants you can find a special menu item which has all of its proceeds donated to Spirit of a Hero. And at Earl’s that item is their Spirit of a Hero Pizza topped with a BBQ-Ranch sauce, Bumbershoot chopped brisket, and red peppers.
Another of their pizzas we love is their Margherita Pizza made with pieces of fresh mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, fresh basil, and garlic oil. We love the fresh quality of the toppings which pairs perfectly with the hearty crust.
And when it comes to Italian classics, Earl’s has more than just pizza mastered. Their Nonna’s Meatballs are a fan-favorite as well as their Vita Mia Lasagna made with a classic bolognese sauce, ricotta, and mozzarella.
When you come to Earl’s, you’re guaranteed to have a great meal and a great experience.
