Evel Pie, an Evel Knievel-inspired Las Vegas pizzeria, just made grabbing a slice the coolest thing to do in Sin City…
Live hard. Ride fast. Eat Pizza. -That’s the motto of the new Evel Pie pizza joint in Las Vegas, NV. Modeled as a tribute to the late, great daredevil Evel Knievel, Evel Pie just became the coolest place for a slice of pizza in all of Las Vegas.
Evel Pie takes awesome (and sometimes bizarre) pizzas and a healthy dose of Evel Knievel memorabilia and packages it all in a setting that feels like the coolest 1970s pizza parlor ever created.
Located in Fremont East in good ol’ downtown Vegas, Evel Pie brings the best New York-style pizza to town, but with a twist that’s decidedly “Evel.” Case in point…Trade in that boring pepperoni pie for their “Snake River Special”, a pizza featuring rattlesnake jalapeno sausage, bell peppers, onions, and garlic.
And nothing goes better with a little ‘za than some ice cold beer. Once again, Evel Pie couldn’t just serve it to you in a glass. That’s not very badass. How about chugging your beer from a motorcycle helmet? Yeah, you can do that here. Even if you choose a can or glass, chances are their happy hour specials will quench your thirst.
Of course, no 70s pizza parlor would be complete without an Evel Knievel pinball machine…

Vegas is a fitting place for an Evel Knievel-inspired restaurant. As most of you know, it was here in Vegas in 1967 at Caesars Palace where Evel attempted to jump the fountains, but crashed on his landing.
The 141 ft. jump would be his longest-to-date, but after hitting the ramp, the motorcycle lost power and Knievel was forced to land on the safety ramp. Upon landing, the handlebars yanked free from his hands, and he went over them. Even Knievel skidded along the ground all the way to the Dunes parking lot, breaking his pelvis, femur, wrist, both ankles, and hip. The crash earned him a month-long hospital stay, but it also earned him international acclaim.
The rest, as they say, is history… Evel went on to be the world’s greatest daredevil and his son, Robbie, even returned to Caesars in 1989 to complete the jump his father didn’t make.
Today, the late Evel Knievel is still a household name nearly a decade after his passing.
