My husband and I loved this place when we visited. We ordered the spicy meatball and the chicken pesto. They were both delicious and reasonably priced. We enjoy trying different pizza restaurants on all of our travels, and my husband always says, "Matchbox is still my favorite!"

Really neat atmosphere inside with an industrial look. There were 8 of us from 7-55 years d and everything was delicious. Pizza is the specialty but burgers and salads were great as well. Fast​ service and a nice trip.

Had gouda burger with onion rings. Like no other I've had before!! Also must have the fried mozzarella balls (can't recall name). Dessert was amazing! Magic brownie and apple crisp is highly recommended.

I always make it a point to eat here during my trips to D.C. The best wood fired pizzas around and friendly/attentive staff.

I was with a party of 5, so we split some appetizers (a trio of scallops, mini sliders, and crab cakes), as well as the shrimp and grits. Both plates were small, but a good sharing size around the table. Most of us ordered the Matchbox Meat pizza, one chose the spicy meatball. No one complained, but no one was... More

Nice thin crust pizza. Remodeled building has lots of stairs and floors and has a unique feel. Decent beer selection. Great place to pregame before going over to the Verizon Center.

Avocado crab tower was interesting and tasty! Pizza was ok, but nothing spectacular. Dining space was compact, but well laid out.

Interesting spaces, friendly service (though not speedy). Thin crust, with good flavor, but excessively seasoned red sauce (too much oregano). Meatballs nice, not too dense; meat pizza tasty. Wine selection good and some reasonable priced ones available.

We sat at the bar and ordered drinks & pizza. Both were delicious! The bartender was nice and entertaining. When my friend and I were (playfully) bickering over my portable phone charger, he offered to charge out phones for us with a traditional charger.
