I am a fan of thin crust pizzas, but I believe truly good, authentic ones are hard to find. The crust can be too hard or too crisp. Or, too soggy, not able to withstand the ingredients on top. Or too greasy. Well, Grimaldi's did not have these issues. The crust was thin, yes. But, still left a little chewiness. The crust was crunchy, but not too crisp. The tomato sauce was full of tomato flavor, but yet still mild. The mozzarella was fresh and melted well. No pre-shredded stuff here. A genuinely enjoyable pizza. (16 inch pizza = $14).
The menu selection is small -- the focus is on pizza (the thin crust pizzas, white pizzas, or pizzas with pesto as the sauce). However, they do offer several salad choices that are served family style. We ordered the House Salad with Grilled Chicken. The salad was about what you'd expect, but included roasted red peppers, which were delicious. The chicken was very tender and moist. (House Salad: Small $5. + $4 for chicken).

Also of note, for children, Grimaldi's provides raw pizza dough for the kids to play with while waiting on their order to be served. It is a super fun and different way to pass the time while waiting for your pizza to be delivered hot and fresh to your table.
I plan on returning to Grimaldi's. I really dug their pizza.
