Tutta’s Pizza Food Truck to Open Brick and Mortar in the West End

The restaurant is slated to open in early 2016. The truck will keep running in the meantime.

Jeremy Scott spent years playing music in Deep Ellum, frequenting venues such as Curtain Club, Blind Lemon, and Club Clearview. A decade later he and his wife, Amanda, conceptualized a full venue for new music talent, along with a kitchen showcasing a unique spin on traditional pizza. They originally planned to open the restaurant in Lewisville, but things didn’t pan out. Instead, they opened Tutta’s Pizza, a food truck specializing in “smoked meat pizzas.”

Jeremy called me up with the details of his plans to open a 4,500-square-foot brick and mortar location in the West End, in the old Dick’s Last Resort location. He was thrilled to describe the full service concept, with 176 seats inside and a “kick-ass” patio with another 20 to 30 tables outside. The menu will include the same smoked meat pizzas (my favorite is the “Hot Chick,” smoked chicken, bacon, serrano peppers, cheese). With the larger kitchen, he’ll also be offering smoked meat plates (chicken, pulled pork, etc.).

      It didn’t close. The OLD location for DLR was on Ross in the West End.

  • George Lewis

    To clarify, Dick’s moved in the 2008 time frame a little north to Victory Park, on Lamar Street. Tutta’s is moving into the old, old location at Ross and Record St.

    Hallelujah! I hope more places open up in the West End. I love the old Landry’s space.

    The West End’s biggest problem is, and always was, that it’s (restaurant)chained up. There aren’t enough local restaurants drawing local crowds. The addition of a new LOCALLY OWNED restaurant can only be considered a positive, for the West End and downtown Dallas.
