Coop’s Pizza has been in business almost 40 years and serves primarily pizza but also serves sandwiches (including burgers), salads, snacks, pressure fried chicken and a few Italian plates. They offer a good lunch deal but you have to be willing to eat buffet style. It seemed to be the popular choice but we wanted to just try their fresh made pizza. The large place has a few counter seats, lots of tables spread throughout a couple rooms and booth seating. One set of booths is in a smaller room with windows to the street out front where a large patio is also available in better weather times. A couple of the tables in the largest room are next to a huge aquarium and the rest of the place has lots of pictures and other decorations to look at. There are a ton of horns around some used for door handles and some for lighting fixtures. We were there in the winter and Christmas decorations were everywhere adding to the casual atmosphere. Service was efficient and friendly.
The tables are bare wood and a roll of paper towels is on the table to use as napkins. The pizzas come in a number of combinations including a set of vegetarian options. We ordered a custom 14″ pie, they come in 10″, 12″, 14″ and 16″, with homemade Italian sausage, onion, green peppers and mushrooms. Fresh mushrooms are available on request. The red sauce was mildly flavored but generously applied as was the cheese. We opted for the white crust, but whole wheat and gluten free are available. The crust is thin but held up well to the toppings. The sausage was nicely flavored with fennel but I would have cooked the chopped pieces of onions and peppers a bit more (prior to putting on the pie). The edge was like a piece of the bottom rolled over on itself which gave you a thicker edge but not a particularly doughy one. Overall it was a good pizza but not one I’m dying to go back for. The 14″ was listed as serving 3-4 people but since we got nothing else and were pretty starved it was about the right amount.
