Screaming Banshee is a local pizza place just outside of downtown Bisbee. This place is quite popular with tourists due to the funky vibe and freshly made wood-fired pizzas. After a long day on your feet exploring the sights downtown, a nice hot pizza and some comforting appetizers is a real treat.
Screaming Banshee is most well-known for their excellent wood-fired pizzas. Appetizers, pastas, salads, and calzones are also on the lineup. The spinach artichoke dip was delicious.
In terms of pizza, you can either choose amongst a small selection of specialty pizzas or customize your own. A gluten-free option is available for 3 bucks more. The staff had no problem letting us customize toppings on 1/2 the pizza. The pizza was decent enough - nothing to write home about, but good for a small town.
The company supports local businesses, using olive oil and vinegar from a local company as well as beans from local coffee roaster, Bisbee Coffee Company (which is the best coffee in town).
Service was friendly, although extremely slow. Our waiter forgot about our appetizer, although was kind enough to comp us for the inconvenience.
An old gas station has been converted into a place that now serves the best pizza in town. Odd art lines the walls for a truly unique touch. The interior is colorful and strange.
The tables are a bit too closely cramped together, however, there were not many crowds on our visit so the ambiance remained peaceful. There is also a small outdoor seating section which looks out at the pretty surrounding mountain scenery.
Screaming Banshee is the best choice in town if you are seeking decent pizza. You really cannot go wrong with classic comfort food after a few hours exploring the historical attractions around town.
