- Though as far as expanding goes Joe's Pizza has them beat in terms of time and area, opening at least 6 locations and a food truck in Los Angeles. In just a few years.
Grimaldi's only has one location in LA and it is in El Segundo. They use coal fired oven to cook the pizza in. This oven is quite a hassle as it seemed to delay their opening for almost a year. The hassle is worth it because it makes the pizza taste delicious and unique to any other pizza in LA, that I know of.
I have been to Grimaldi's a lot since it opened. It is some of the best pizza in this city. The crust is crispy and charred with great flavor and a toughness to it. The sauce on the margarita is just perfect. A light and sweet sauce, the cheese is light and creamy as well and not overpowering or over used. I could probably eat their margarita pizza continually until I overdosed and died. I would not be able to stop eating it.
It is a great pizza at an affordable price. $16 for a large 18 inch margarita pizza. The place is a big, sit down casual restaurant with a nice outside patio and a good collection of beers.
