Would we go back:
184 W. 7th Street
• Turkey Bomb $7.50
Zamboni has a great location in downtown St. Paul, however there was nothing going on at the Exel Energy Center so it was dead when we were there. But the place is nice, not a lot of seating, but very casual so good for children. I was not feeling like pizza so I ordered the Turkey Garlic bomb sandwich. This may have been a mistake it was good, but not great a little salty I thought, not too garlicky, but a bit spicy which was good. It was big so plenty for a meal or two.
• Zamboni Pizza medium $14.50
Zamboni Pizza is a small beer and pizza joint across the street from the Xcel Energy Center in Saint Paul. It looks like the place that handles overflow traffic during the games and has a hard time drawing people the rest of the year. Everyone going to West Seventh Street heads to Cosetta's for pizza or one of the many bar and grills. We were the only ones dining in at Zamboni Pizza, and there wasn't much delivery traffic either.
The pizza was good. The Zamboni Pizza is a combination of sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms, onions, green peppers, and bacon bits. I have to admit the bacon bits added something to what is a common combination pizza in the Twin Cities. The thin crust holds up well with the toppings. The beer selection is basic but good. Overall, Zamboni Pizza is good but not great, and a decent option on a game or concert night.
