Ask Chris: Is It True That Eagle Rock Doesn’t Allow Chain Stores on Colorado Boulevard, so Big Mama’s and Big Papa’s Pizza Adopted a Pseudonym?

Our in-house historian has the answer

Actually, you can spend your dough at any number of franchise pizza places in Eagle Rock, but only one of them serves a rack of lamb and has 50 beers on tap. The restaurant [email protected] is part Big Mama’s pizza parlor and part tavern. The decor pays homage to the railway that ran on Colorado from 1906 to 1949. The only zoning restrictions in the area apply to drive-thrus, so you’ll have to pick up your slice (and anything else) on foot.
