The Corner Slice at Fisher Park

A Left Which creation

My girlfriend knows how to make a beautiful Left Which creation

A good friend of mine often hits up The Corner Slice at Fisher Park to eat pizza, drink beer, and watch the Baltimore Ravens games on Sunday. After my visit a few weeks ago I see why it’s the perfect spot for this Sunday ritual.

The Corner Slice inhabits an old Sinclair Oil filling station on the corner of Fisher and Elm, just on the outskirts of the historic Fisher Park neighborhood. Adaptive reuse is something you are beginning to see trend and is an important part of Greensboro’s history. The building is interesting inside and out. The exterior offers a quaint patio for outside dining when the weather is right. The building’s history is printed out on napkin holders for each guest to read and appreciate. An excerpt follows:

Lil knots

Look at dem cute lil' knots!

“… In 1927 the Sinclair Oil and Refining Corporation purchased the land located at 600 North Elm Street, and in 1928 open H-C Sinclair Gasoline Service Station. 83 years later, The Corner Slice at Fisher Park opens and occupies the remodeled service station.”

Like typical sports bars there is a fair share of giant flat screens, but The Corner Slice is more than your average bar and grill. The restaurant offers a variety of gourmet pizzas, as well as beer and liquor; tap selections boast of many beers from microbreweries like Bells, Highland, Sweet Water, and Great Lakes.

We decided to start with one of the many appetizers, which range widely from average bar fare like wings and nachos to offbeat dishes like baked macaroni and cheese bites and grilled chicken with roasted red pepper on pita bread. After reading many reviews about the garlic knots we decide to try them. The dough was cooked perfectly crusty on the outside with a soft, chewy inside. The marinara sauce was sweet yet succulent. My mouth just watered thinking about it. The menu indicates that Great Lakes Eliot Ness amber lager in the creation of the marina sauce. I think it’s the beer that lends a unique flavor I’ve never come across in a marinara.

A South Park

The South Park makes you want to kiss the person who thought up Hawaiian style

For our entrees we both chose to order pizzas. I had the South Park, a Hawaiian-style pizza with ham, pineapple, red sauce and a melted, gooey blend of white cheeses. I love the way the pineapples compliment the tomato sauce and ham so well and bring a pleasant surprise to each bite. My girlfriend, being a vegetarian, decided on the Left Which veggie pizza. This menu item allows you to choose from several vegetables to create your own custom pie. She built a delicious pizza topped with mushrooms, spinach, black olives and tomato slices.

No matter what you put on a pizza usually it’s the crust that is the deciding factor in whether it’s an average pizza or one you will write home about. The crust on The Corner Slice pizzas is not too thick, but you still get a subtle crunch from each bite.

The Corner Slice offers plain cheese pizza by the slice for $2, but for an additional 50 cents per topping you can let your imagination wonder. The pizzas are the star of the show at corner slice, but also offered are submarine sandwiches on sub rolls or pita bread, served with chips and a side salad. Not too bad for around $7.

For the dessert lover in all of us there is Mom’s Cinnamon Frosting brushed on the same dough knots mentioned earlier. You might also try a cup or a cone of ice cream.

    I need to go here again…I loved it when I tried it the first time, and a friend goes there every week. For the price you can't beat it, not for such good pizza. It seems pretty kid-friendly too.

  2. Rae Alton says:

    They're kid-friendly, definitely – I've taken Halle a couple of times. I really like the fact that each pizza is named after streets in Fisher Park.

  3. Katei says:

    Dude. I love this place… they use either red oak or some other craft brew in the marinara. They also have pesto–which delish.

    for the vegetarians of the crowd, the "left which" is like $9(sm)/$12(lg) and comes with any/all vegetable, fruit, or cheese toppings…

    ….so i kind of eat there a lot.

    Awesome pizza pie! The waiters and waitresses are very friendly and really go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. This is probably one of the best local restaurants in town. My family and I love "The Corner Slice."
