    Grab a pizza before they get too noisy and become a dance floor later into the evening

    Get @barbasicpizza's white pie. It's got mashed potatoes and bacon. If that doesn't sound good to you then I'm sorry you're just dumb.

    This is some of the best pizza in San Diego. Stick with the basics. White 5 cheese or a pepperoni with red sauce. You can't go wrong!

    Half Meatball special, and half Ricotta, Artichoke Heart + Pepperoni is the perfect close to forty one being official

    An amazing spot, wide open gallery loft space with live performing painter and djs. Awesome idea! Strongly recommend you to stop by at least once if you are a visitor like me.

    The cloth on Basic's pool table is stained, dirty, & needs replacement; but it's a 10' long Brunswick and playing is free :-)

  • Matt T.

    Don't go here. This place is a joke. Bouncer is an asshole. Pizza tastes like cardboard.

    Calling a 1912 warehouse home, the original brick walls and industrial garage doors put you on notice that this is the spot to relax and enjoy the best pizza in the city. Read more

    Big fan, enjoy the breeze.

    Red pie with mozzarella, bacon, pepperoni, and cherry peppers - finish it off with a Mule. Dang.

    Saturday 90s to current hip hop. Easy to get in - no dress code or cover, line moves fast (even during a event whether u knew about it or not). Plenty of seats. Acoustics are balls though.

    Jamie will give you free high fives!

    Mashed potato pizza is so overrated. Mary pie with eggplant is the way to go.

    Kathleen Ngo · August 18, 2012
  • Iam S.

    I can see why it's called basic. Red sauce is warmed tomato paste. Pizza was bland. Can't see why everyone raved over mashed potato pizza. Meatball pizza was ok. Overpriced.

    Iam Sheppard · July 25, 2012
  • Mike C.

    Sub par pizza seriously over priced!

    Mike Chartier · July 17, 2012

    Try the Red Pie W/Meatballs, Mushrooms And Red Peppers - Great pie! Just what the doctor ordered.

    Dougie Fresh · June 19, 2012

    Free pizza during happy hour, 5-7 (not on game days) and a great bartending staff

    No drink specials midweek. :( No way Im spending the same price for a drink as a Saturday night when there are 10 people in the place. Epic Fail
