Leaning Tower of Pizza
2501 University Ave. SE
Minneapolis, MN 55414
With a prime location on the University of Minnesota campus, Leaning Tower of Pizza is a popular gathering spot for students, sports fans (LTOP is one block from TCF stadium), and those looking for a late-night bite (they’re open 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. seven days a week.)
The pizza is average – a thin crust topped with a slightly zesty red sauce and a layer of cheese lacking in flavor. While we can’t rave about the pizza, we enjoyed our experience overall. The restaurant is huge, with a dining area separated from a larger bar area with pool tables, dart boards, and other novelties. Leaning Tower is popular before and after games at TCF, not only for the pizza, but also for the booze (no alcohol is served at TCF Stadium). Think of it more as a college bar serving pizza than the other way around, and you’ll likely leave satisfied.
Leaning Tower of Pizza also has an Uptown location (2324 Lyndale Ave. S)
