Food Review: Pat's Pizza
Being a teenager, I am naturally addicted to pizza from any source, at any day, at any time. However, I must say that the pizza I got from Pat's Pizza in the club level behind section 213 was some of the greatest that has ever entered my digestive system. Unlike the Papa John's pizza back at good old RFK, this pizza was cooked in an open flame oven and was almost always served hot. No bringing out pizza from the freezer in back for the workers at Pat's. They are generous with the toppings and there is no price difference between pepperoni and cheese, which, being a pepperoni guy, is a plus.
Still, as with all things sold at a stadium, price is a huge concern. I thought it would be impossible to sell a slice of pizza for $6.50, but the money makers of the Nationals found a way. If you are too young to legally buy beer like me, or you simply don't like alcohol, the cost of a slice and soda comes to $11. This price already has the outrageous 10% "stadium" tax added in.
One thing that does make Pat's worthwhile, however, is that it is actually cheaper than other pizza venues in the park. Slice Down the Line and Pentagon Pizza, behind sections 224 and 241 respectively, charge $8 for a single slice (that's a whole 1.50 more than Pat's for those that are challenged at math like me). The other thing is that the pizza is only slightly bigger in size and vastly inferior in quality (it reminded me of the pizza at RFK; must've been the leftovers from last year).
Unfortunately Pat's is only accessible for those with seats that are in the club level between sectoins 205 and 221, because the ushers will send you back if your ticket is for a different section. But if you do have the appropriate tickets, if you love pizza, and if money truly is no object, you will definitely love Pat's.
