The wait for wood-fired pizza is finally over.

Smokin' Oak Wood-Fired Pizza is hosting their grand opening on Thursday (January 9) from 12pm-7pm at 2478 Highway 6 & 50, the former Tan In Paradise location.

Last August we learned that Smokin' Oak was coming to Grand Junction, but we didn't know exactly when the doors would open. Now we do.

On Thursday, you can enjoy free pizza (while supplies last) and get a sample of what you can expect from Grand Junction's newest pizza joint.

The Smokin' Oak menu features pizza, sandwiches, cheese bread, and desserts available for dine-in, carry-out, and delivery. Their offerings include some very non-traditional pizzas for the adventurous type, as well as a meat pie for pizza pie traditionalists.

Smokin' Oak Wood Fired Pizza is a small chain with other locations in Denver, Iowa, Tennessee, Florida, and Minnesota.

I'm always anxious to try a new pizza pie or sandwich, but I'm likely to wait til after the grand opening event when the crowd may not be as crazy. That may be easier said than done, because after writing this and looking at pictures of food on their website I'm not sure I'll be able to wait.
