You might be interested to know that Grand Junction's newest pizza joint is now open.

You may have missed the opening of The Garlic Knot since it's really not on any main thoroughfares. It's located on the south side of Spin City, basically between PetSmart and Home Depot. You're not likely to drive past it accidentally.

The menu looks pretty extensive for dine-in, carry-out, delivery, or catering.

The Garlic Knot specialty is thin-crust New York-style pizza. Their menu showcases 20 specialty pies, or you can make your own. In addition to pizza, they offer calzones, pasta, subs, wings, garlic knots, desserts and a kids menu for ages 12 and under.

The Grand Junction location is the 14th store in Colorado, which is where The Garlic Knot originated in 2010. There is one location in Florida.

I am always anxious to try a new pizza, and since I favor thin crust, this one is especially intriguing. However, I have to say, I tend to go into these things skeptical, but hoping to be surprised.
