Slim & Husky's Pizza Beeria (North Nashville)
Slim & Husky’s Pizza Beeria is a fast casual and gourmet pizza joint serving up artisan pies and unique cinnamon rolls made with locally sourced ingredients. It’s a hip hop-inspired spot founded by three Nashville natives who aim to invigorate less touched areas of the community through employmen...
Long-time friends Clinton Gray, Derrick Moore, and Emanuel Reed met in high school and attended college together at Tennessee State University. After graduation, they decided to focus on bringing people and opportunities to the neighborhood around their alma mater. The result is the restaurant they cleverly call a “pizza beeria” because of its focus on custom-made pies and craft beers. In addition to excellent food, the bold decor with hip-hop lyrics stenciled on the wall and welcoming atmosphere really feels in and of the neighborhood. The trio has already expanded the concept to other Nashville neighborhoods, including the only Black-owned restaurant in the Lower Broad tourist district. They’ve also opened new locations across the state and in Georgia and California.
