Riverfront Times' Description

Things we'd go to Columbia to do: Watch the Tigers get their asses handed to them on the gridiron and/or hardcourt. Browse all the cute college-town bookstores. Eat at Shakespeare's Pizza -- which might be the best pizza in St. Louis when you get right down to it, notwithstanding the 100-mile drive. Pounded out in a perpetual frenzy by a bunch of groovy-hippy college kids and post-collegiates, Shake's dough is made in both white and wheat varieties. (Yeah, wheat crusts usually suck, but these rock.) The cheese is provolone, not mozz. (It's tough to tell the difference.) And the toppings come in a nearly endless, always fresh assortment: pineapple, hand-sliced pepperoni, peppers, lean ground beef, jalapeƱos, broccoli.... Located right across the street from Mizzou's campus, Shakespeare's weathered-wood interior reeks of study breaks, first dates and drinking games; in short, it's a fantastic vibe. No wonder regulars traditionally send in snapshots of themselves wearing their Shakespeare's T-shirts in faraway places -- even farther away than St. Louis.
