DC Slices: Taking DC's Signature Slice To Go

Taking DC's Signature Slice To Go

Oh, D.C. pizza truck scene, do you want to be Jumbo slices or not? Do you know? It’s hard to tell with people lined up during lunch down the block for DC Slices. As much as Washingtoninians may hate to hear it, DC Slices is much closer to Adams Morgan’s Jumbo Slice than it is to either Pizzeria Orso or Two Amy’s. That doesn’t mean it’s bad. Not at all. It just has that same mottled cheese and sauce look and texture, and that same non-crispy bottom. It’s a style of pizza that those not from Washington but who are adopting it as their next big city, and sensitive about their own small-town sensibilities, should just stop equating to New York and enjoy it for what it is, another regional style, and hey, a pretty good one at that, especially when you’ve had a few drinks (but not necessarily because of it). There are all the familiar toppings to be expected (including Buffalo chicken), no surprise there, but a strong side move is to order the tater tots either loaded, with pizza, bacon, and Cheddar, or chili and cheese style.
