Bibb Street Pizza Company

Effective parenting can be enhanced by a certain kind of alchemy. On some nights, you want a very particular combination of things: beer, food, perhaps some dining al fresco with a place for children to run around. Despite our occasionally temperate climate, Montgomery doesn’t have that many of these places. However, Bibb Street Pizza is ideal fit for the needs of parents who might be looking for some a child-friendly outdoor downtown meal.

The other night, we met some friends there who have a precocious and active young child. When she wasn’t nose deep in a book, our friends’ daughter was trying to challenge us to match wits playing Jenga with the set that was almost her size.

Before Jenga, we had food. One couple ordered and split a salad and a eggplant parmesan sandwich. These were pretty fine. The salad was basic, with lots of forkable romaine. The eggplant parm could have been more substantial, more eggplant, less melted cheese. The other couple ordered pepperoni pizza (although Dad ate some, it was pronounced good), a salad that came with pepperoni on top, and a veggie sub. Their sub seemed like it was largely made of black olives with cheese on top, but they declared it fine. Both sandwiches were largely cheese conveyance technologies, but we were enjoying the late summer sun.

As you may have noticed if you follow Midtown Montgomery Living on Twitter, we’d just been to New Mexico, exploring ancient caves and mountains. We brought our young friend a trilobite fossil from a shop we found in Truth or Consequences. At its peak, our Jenga challenge drew the attention of everyone on the patio that Bibb Street Pizza shares with Common Bond. As must happen in every game of Jenga, the tower eventually collapsed.

There was live music playing outside. Dennis Pugh and a keyboardist were playing a diverse range of covers, including Bill Withers and Garth Brooks. They were working hard in the heat, and we appreciated Common Bond for bringing tunes to a Saturday summer early evening. It’s nice to hear any kind of live music here in town, and we’re glad the outdoor space shared between the pizza place and the attached brewery allows for families to sit out with food and a beer. Also, you can play cornhole. Did you know our city just hosted the world championships of cornhole? It’s a fact.

Montgomery’s a city with great pizza. Tomatino’s, Midtown Pizza Kitchen, Sa Za – all fantastic places to grab a slice or two. Bibb Street’s food offerings still have a little to work on. Pizza toppings are a little scanty, and sometimes the whole arrangement slides off the crust. But it’s just fine on a night with friends, craft beer and a band, and kids running around enjoying the freedom to be young. You could do a lot worse.
