There is a brief list of modestly priced, pizza-friendly wines. Oddly, the menu suggests beer-style pairings for several dishes — "The Hill" would go well with a Belgian strong ale, an American amber or a (dark) dunkel lager, for example — yet the restaurant's beer selection is limited to precisely three, all on tap and all made by Anheuser-Busch. This starts to make a lot of sense when you consider that Epic is located right next door to the International Tap House, which offers 17 bazillion different beers, doesn't serve food and welcomes patrons to bring in their own.

Epic's fast-casual setup allows for prompt service, and the servers on my visits were quite friendly, checking back on my table (and others) to make sure everything was OK and to offer drink refills. The servers and kitchen staff all wear dark-blue shirts with a patch over the heart that bears the Epic logo. It's reminiscent of an old-school gas-station workshirt, and it hints at a brand rather than just a restaurant.

I went to epic last night after finally reading this article. All I have to say is wow!!!!! When I first walked in with some friends of mine I was like, ok this place is cute. There was no outdoor seating which I was really hoping for. But the girl who took our order said we could sit on the patio of the bar next door and they would serve our food next door to us. Wow, Really!?!? That's a huge bonus on their behalf. Well we got our pizzas (which looked so heavenly perfect. As if they was something out of a magazine photo. Just so perfect). They were so goooood!! So I had to go back and see this yummy works of art. This is the most shocking thing... You would picture a guy slaving away making our delightful meal. No... It's was a thin, bubbly, laughing young women!! Hands down to the owner! I will be back!! For we have been talking about this young women and the awesome pizzas ever since our visit. Recommend everyone going to epic!!
