Stateside Pie and Beer opened recently in Mesquite, at 1335 North Peachtree Road. The upscale sports bar's name was inspired by World War II veterans' dreams of returning home, and the interior is cloaked in mages of that "Greatest Generation." Bring your copy of Unbroken, or perhaps not because there are 23 TVs throughout the restaurant that would surely distract you. (But that was a great book and it can't hurt to carry a copy all the time anyway.)
The "pie" part of the name is of the Italian savory sorts, not hot apple or key lime. The pie menu pays homage to different flavors in different states. The Texas pizza is made with a chipotle BBQ sauce, cheese, onions, jalapeños and brisket. The Pennsylvania pie has fresh mozzarella, roasted chicken, Italian sausage, peppers and onions. Louisiana pie is served with blackened shrimp, Andouille sausage, celery and hot cherry peppers. (Wait, no okra?)
As far as the "Beer," Stateside has more than 40 craft taps, including local Dallas breweries Deep Ellum Brewing Company and Lakewood Brewery. According to a press release, the restaurant also has an exclusive private stock and "leaves no hop unturned in its carefully curated selection."
