The other day, I celebrated a birthday - they seem to happen once a year - and I received an invitation from Scoreboards Pizza and Grill to join their "Birthday Club," and receive a free, one-topping pizza as a birthday gift. This worked out perfectly, as Scoreboards had been on my "bucket list" of restaurants to visit, and the thought of a free, birthday pizza made the idea seem even better.
As with all restaurant reviews I publish, I have no affiliation with the restaurant reviewed, and there is no monetary gain on my part, as I am simply a person who likes to eat, and I love to write-up, and publish my dining experiences.
Photo: It's about 2:30 in the afternoon on Saturday, March 23, 2019, and I've arrived at Scoreboards Pizza and Grill to enjoy a delicious pizza, along with a couple of beers.
After I received a message inviting me to join the "Birthday Club," I immediately messaged them back with my interest, and I received an email from management, a code to give to my server, to enjoy a medium, one-topping pizza, on the house. That's certainly a generous offer for a "foodie" and pizza lover like me!
Photo: As you enter the restaurant, you'll be greeted with a "please wait to be seated sign," but I simply seated myself at the bar, which is to the left as you enter the restaurant.
Photo: On the wall, next to the bar, is a list of specials when a game is being played. Scoreboards leans heavily towards a sports bar, and offers a great place to relax, and enjoy a game. On this Saturday afternoon, various sports events were being shown on the many monitors in the restaurant, but I really wasn't paying much attention to them, as pizza and beer was my "plan of the day."
Photo: As you enter the restaurant, the dining room is to the right. The bar, where I was sitting, is to the left of the photo, and separated from the dining room by a partition. Like the bar, the dining room features many television monitors and is a good place to enjoy pizza while you watch a game.
Photo: The restaurant features one of the best patios that I've seen in Roseville, as it features not only a fireplace, but also a fountain. There is a fence around the patio, to separate it from the street, so, as per California state law, you can enjoy your beer and wine on the patio. The weather today was on and off rain showers, so the patio wasn't in use. I can imagine how wonderful it would be to sit on the patio during a warm summer evening, enjoying the fire, sipping a beer, munching on pizza, and enjoying the wonderful atmosphere...
Photo: The pizza and beverage menu. The other side of the menu features sandwiches, burgers, salads and more. Note the menu advertises the dough is made, in-house from scratch, and all of the vegetables are fresh.
Photo: In my case, beer goes with pizza, and pizza goes with beer, and the two are definitely interchangeable. My server and bartendress, Brittney, pours me a draught Coors Light beer, for the price of only $3.00 for a 16-oz glass.
Photo: After placing my order for a one-topping medium pizza, I sat at the bar, sipped on a beer, and chatted with my super-friendly bartendress, Brittney, as her time permitted. She and I talked about area restaurants, and food in general, as she and I share common interests in food, as we're both dedicated "foodies."
Photo: Just in time for a second beer, my "Birthday Pizza" arrived about twenty minutes after placing my order, with a big smile!
Photo: I smile, as Brittney snaps my photo, as I know I'm about ready to enjoy one of the best pizzas in Roseville. Years ago, I could have eaten the whole pizza in a single sitting, but now in my advanced age, that is no longer possible. I ate three slices and took the rest home in a box.
I love everything about pizza, but one of the best things about pizza is it keeps well as leftovers. Since I knew that it was impossible for me to eat the whole pizza today, I made plans to enjoy a couple of meals over the leftover pizza...
Photo: A pizza from heaven: My one topping, "birthday pizza" from Scoreboards Pizza and Grill. Thanks, Scoreboards for the amazing "Birthday Pizza!" It almost makes another birthday worthwhile...
And amazing this pizza truly was! I've always heard the way to judge a good pizza is by the dough and the cheese, and in this case, both were just perfect! The crust was fresh, as the dough is made in-house before the restaurant opens, and baked to perfection. The cheese was tangy, delicious, melted perfectly, and complimented the amazing crust. This pizza was so good that the cheese alone would have made the pizza delicious, but then when the topping was added - I chose linguica - this pizza was out of this world delicious with flavor! My one topping, linguica was plenty of topping, as this pizza was so good, it didn't need any more toppings!
The pizza arrived piping hot from the kitchen, and just oozed gooey, delicious, melted cheese, just the way I like it. The crust, cheese and linguica topping all worked together to form a mouth-watering pizza.
Photo: Close-up goodness of two slices of my linguica pizza. I can't say that Scoreboards makes the best pizza in Roseville, as I don't have the answer to that question, but I can say that this pizza is simply delicious, and one of the best pizzas that I've had the pleasure to enjoy in YEARS!
Once again, I'd like to thank the management at Scoreboards Pizza and Grill for the complimentary "birthday pizza," as that offer is as generous as it gets.
When you're in the mood for some of the best pizza that Roseville has to offer, and you want to enjoy it in a fun, family-friendly, sports-bar-like atmosphere, I highly recommend a visit to Scoreboards Pizza and Grill. The pizza is delicious, and the staff is as friendly as it gets. When it comes to delicious pizza, on any playing field, Scoreboards comes out a winner!
