If you’ve ever driven by Circle H Liquor Mart in Echo Park on a Thursday, Friday, or Saturday night, you’ve probably noticed a crowd of people queuing up in the parking lot. No they’re not waiting to stock up on weekend booze, they’re waiting for pizza; namely Elio’s pizza (and no not the frozen 1980s kind). Elio Lopez first launched the concept in summer of 2019, with years of LA kitchen experience under his belt. Unknowingly, his setup (now a full-fledged food truck with wood-fired oven) was much more COVID friendly than the many brick-and-mortar establishments who were forced to close come early 2020 and he continued to sling fire-charred pies throughout the pandemic to the delight of locals and fans.
How to Order: Get in line Thursday-Sunday starting at 4:30PM.
