Lakeside pizza and cheesesteaks with plenty of East Coast flavor
After making “Secret Pizza” an under-the-radar hit on the Strip, Roy Bass expanded both his business and creativity by partnering with Chris Builder for Those Guys Pies. The no-frills pizzeria sits on the water at The Lakes residential community west of the Strip. Most of the pies are packed with hand-tossed East Coast tradition, but the one that gets the most attention (including a rave review by Guy Fieri) is the Maui Wowie. It’s made with shredded pork (smoked on-site for 16 hours) with pickled jalapeño, house-made bacon barbecue sauce, and pineapple. The angus cheesesteaks are nearly as popular as the pizzas, but don’t leave without trying the thick and gooey mozzarella sticks or a bite of cannoli for dessert. A second location is set to open in Henderson any day now.
