We've been to the Capone's in Post Falls, ID quite a few times and have never been unimpressed. We decided to try the original Capone's this week and once again left pleased. I want to talk about two different things here, the Pizza and the Garlic Fries. First the fries...
Garlic Fries ($6):
Garlic fries are just one of those things that I love ordering. While not always amazing, rarely are they "bad". When I first saw the $6 price-tag on these I almost didn't order them but I'm SO glad I did. There has not been one time when we've gone to Capone's and not ordered these. Fried to crispy perfection and coated generously with garlic, parmesan cheese and black pepper. Not to mention the 6 different dipping sauces to choose from.
Summer Delight Pizza ($9):
My wife and I usually split a 9" Pizza and a side-order of the aforementioned Garlic Fries. Out favorite pie on thier menu is the Roasted Garlic Chicken (red sauce, mozzarella, artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes, kalamata olives, roasted garlic and seasoned chicken) but today we decided to go with the Pizza of the Month (ranch, mozzarella, white onions, honey bourbon ham and feta. Finished with fresh spinach and honey mustard). While we do prefer the RGC pizza, this was really good. The bite from the fresh mozzarella with the sweet pop provided by the honey mustard on Capone's amazing crust was a great combo. I highly recommend trying it for something new.
As a side note, my sister-in-law ordered the Thai Chicken Pizza and it was OK. The peanut sauce was a little to much like peanut butter and slightly to sweet. It wasn't bad by any means, it was just not as good as it could have been...
A quick shout out to whoever chose the decorum in this restaurant. It's definitely a pub by design with the baseball mitts, beer taps, classic pinups and other sports memorabilia hung about. The place really couldn't have a better classic feel. Oh and speaking of beer taps, Capone's has one of the best beer selections I've ever seen (41 revolving taps!!!)
In conclusion, if you want beer, fries and/or pizza then go to Capone's. It's about as good as you can get in the area.
