My husband and I love wood -fired pizza so decided to try Pick Axe Pizza for dinner. We loved the inexpensive garden side salad, and the pizzas were some of the best I've ever tasted: fresh ingredients, crispy, hand -tossed crust, piping hot. The service was also friendly and helpful. A small soft drink with free refills was only a dollar. The server turned the tv channel to the world series when we asked. I would definitely return for another meal there

We ordered a medium pizza and a salad. The salad was delivered promptly, but the medium pizza we ordered took about 40 minutes to be delivered to our table. We discovered that it wasn't actually a medium, but was a small. We didn't bother returning it, since it took so long for the first pizza to be delivered.

Don’t let the “wood-fired” moniker on the highway sign fool you. The pizza has no charred blisters on the bottom of the dough and the dough seemed very ordinary, like it came straight from the restaurant supply house. But, they had good beer and good toppings, although a bit sparse except for the cheese. (I prefer less cheese and more of the tasty bits. Margarita Pizza needs to be ordered as WHITE Margarita to get it without tomato sauce and fresh tomatoes. But there were just a couple pieces of chopped tomato rather than numerous slices, and no basil leaves.

Very early morning flight from Memphis. Driving for an hour+ out of Denver. We're tired and hungry. We made the mistake of getting off I70 at the first exit for Idaho Springs - lots of road construction and detours. We finally made it into the main downtown drag and found a parking space across from Pick Axe. The guys had just fired up the oven and made our pizza slices to order. Huge slices with plenty of toppings! The Pick Axe staff was great and enthusiastically answered all of our dumb tourist questions. We will definitely stop by Pick Axe on our way through Idaho Springs next year.

3 stars for the pizza (former New Yorker with high standards). It tasted fine but the margarita pie was just chopped tomatoes on standard mozzarella with a lot of dried basil - Supposed to be tomatoes with fresh mozzarella slices and fresh basil. Oh well. A bit pricey for what you get.
The wings however were killer - finally a place that makes actual hot wings. When they say "nuclear" they mean it. Most people will find them inedible but we appreciated that they were not "watered down"
