New Pizza Place Coming Soon, Maybe

This area of town could use a good local pizza shop.

This sign outside this building on West Congress Street just east of Grande Avenue says a pizza place named The Olive is opening here soon. I did my usual serious investigative work — i.e., looking in the windows — and it looks like a fresh coat of paint has been applied and that several power tools have been in use recently. Most of the kitchen gear appears to be in place, too.

The place next door, at 921 W. Congress St., which I’m pretty sure used to be called Taqueria del Valle Pascua, is now Sonoran Delights. It’s got a nice selection of tacos and burritos; affordable sno-cones, raspados and milkshakes; and a fruit salad covered in granola, cinnamon and condensed milk that I’m heading back to try as soon as time allows.

(Thanks to reader Sue Mullory Hansen for the tip.)
