Marco's pizza

chimay5 Sep 16, 2010 03:57 PM

There have been a lot of good things said about Marco's Coal Fired Pizza on Larimer St.
We didn't want to make the drive from where we live so I looked to see if they might have another location. Sure enough there are four other Marco's listed and one soon to open on E. Dry Creek. Are all these the same owned or is the one on Larimer the most "authentic" of them?

    Be aware that there is a chain called Marco's at http://marcos.com/ which has nothing to do with Marco's Coal Fired Pizza http://www.marcoscoalfiredpizza.com/. There is a Marco's chain fairly close to us in the northern 'burbs which is fine for take-out in a pinch, but it's nowhere near as good as the other Marco's. Check out this Westword Cafe Society blog item about Mark Dym from Marco's opening other spots though on Dry Creek: http://blogs.westword.com/cafesociety...

      I'm going to disagree a bit. Marcos coal fired pizza is really good. Marcos the suburban delivery chain is below average even in that category. That's my opinion based on experience with the Broomfield store. Other ones could be better, I guess.

        That is exactly what I said: The Marco's CHAIN is nowhere near as good as the other Marco's. The Arvada one has been fine "in a pinch" (such as when you don't want to drive to Boulder or Denver and you're starving), but I included the warning because I wouldn't want anyone to go to the chain Marco's and think it's in any way related to the Coal Fired one on Larimer.

      Like the others have said, they are not the same. Marcos Coal FIred Pizza downtown is pretty good. I've had the Margharita Pizza, Meatball Sliders, Lemoncello Wings, & Nutella Pizza & enjoyed them all. The pizzas get a little bit of char on them which I like but some people don't.
      My husband went to the Marcos in the norther "burbs" and when he saw the menu, realized it wasn't the same. He didn't stay to eat, and said the pizzas didn't look anything like the Marcos downtown.
