Burke Street Pizza, 1140 Burke St., celebrated its 10th anniversary on Feb. 19.
The eatery has been a local favorite for many years, winning the “Best Pizzeria in Winston-Salem” award in Smitty’s Notes Reader Poll from 2007-2012. Since opening in 2003, Burke Street has opened two other Winston-Salem locations.
“We are proud to have come to downtown Winston-Salem and to be a part of the growth and development over the past ten years,” said owner David Hillman. “There has been quite a bit of change and we have grown right along with the rest of downtown Winston-Salem. We hope to be here for a long time to come.”
Hillman thanked his customers and employees Jason O’Brien, Cameron Dilley, Hugo Lopez, Boris Bliman, Jeff Livengood, and Moises Martinez, who have been with the restaurant from the beginning.
During last week’s anniversary celebration, customers took t-shirts, keychains, tote-bags and other freebies.
“Congratulations to Burke Street Pizza for 10 years in business,” said Mayor Allen Joines. “They were one of the early pioneers to Burke Street and downtown Winston-Salem, and it would not be the same place without them.”
