San Diego pizzeria expanding to southwest Las Vegas

Updated April 3, 2024 - 6:47 pm

Mr. Moto, the San Diego pizzeria known for its thin crust and fluffy cornice, is launching its first shop in Las Vegas, on South Rainbow Boulevard in the southwest. The debut is planned for mid-April.

The pizzeria encompasses 1,700 square feet, offers grab-and-go and dine-in service, and features leather seating, wood paneling, big-screen TVs and a hum of red neon.

Leading off the menu are pizzas such as the Rocky Mountains (meatballs, ricotta, spicy honey, oregano), The Hulk (pepperoni, bacon, ham, sausage), the Furious Diablo (garlic chicken, Buffalo sauce, house ranch), and a New York-style pie. Garlic knots and calzones come along for the ride.

Mr. Moto’s tap wall dispenses local and domestic ales, IPAs, and brews from the pizzeria’s house brand, including signature Mr. Moto Blonde.

The pizzeria is at 9270 S. Rainbow Blvd., Suite 100. Mr. Moto also has seven pizzerias in the San Diego area and one in Phoenix. Visit mrmotopizza.com or follow @mrmotopizza on social media.

Dear Penny: Do I really have to tip 20% at a buffet?!

To answer this common question, we have to shift the way we understand tipping. The reason we tip is not to offer a thank-you or a reward to service workers for an outstanding or even sufficient job.
