“Seven days without pizza, makes one weak!” is the slogan at the Wagon Wheel Pizza restaurant in Palm Bay. Seems like we end up at Wagon Wheel for dinner every time I visit my parents in Palm Bay. At least 12 or more of us go together and we’re a rowdy bunch. We tell ourselves that Wagon Wheel is kid friendly—that’s why we keep going there. I think we really end up at Wagon Wheel because we love the food, especially the pizza. Some of us like the pitchers of ice cold beer. The place reminds us of the old days when Leaning Tower and Wagon Wheel were the big names in Italian cuisine, especially in the Melbourne-Palm Bay area.
Wagon Wheel Pizza Restaurant Review
I can’t remember ever going to Wagon Wheel when the restaurant was empty. It’s crowded most of the time. Sometimes, it’s standing room only. A line forms outside, and the bench by the window is full of patrons eagerly waiting to get in. The servers are always warm and friendly even when the place is packed and one of my grand kids is laying across three or four bar stools. Service is usually quick, and the servers are very attentive. We’ve eaten at Wagon Wheel many times; I can’t think of one time when we had a bad experience. The restaurant is decorated in Americana memorabilia, stuff I love, and stuff that gets my grand son’s attention. It keeps him occupied until the food is served.
The Wagon Wheel Pizza Menu
Wagon Wheel serves more than just pizza. They offer subs, salads, traditional Italian dishes, calzones, shrimp and clam baskets, kids meals, and wings. (View the Wagon Wheel Pizza restaurant menu on Facebook for the complete menu.) They also offer meal deals from 11 AM to 5 PM daily.
We usually order about four pizzas and a few appetizers. Our favorite is pepperoni pizza. We also like the Wagon Wheel Special—pepperoni, mushrooms, sausage, meatballs, onions, peppers, olives, garlic, and anchovies (we get these on the side). My nephew sometimes orders a cheese burger pizza (blasphemy!). The pizza crust is just right. It’s light and airy but chewy and crisp. It’s the best part of the pizza, I think.
While we’re waiting for pizza, we order fried pickles, bacon cheese fries, mozzarella sticks, and dough boys, which are dipped in marinara sauce. Most fried pickles are sliced in to chips first. Wagon Wheel fried pickles are sliced into spears, then fried. These pickles are much larger. The pickles are served with a ranch dipping sauce. I like the pickles just as they are, but the kids love the sauce.
My niece usually orders a Caesar Salad (says she’s dieting), but abandons it for pizza as soon as it’s served. The salads are large enough for two or as meal for one. We always order the kids spaghetti and meatballs. They eat the spaghetti one strand at a time, giving us time to enjoy our pizza.
