Casey’s Pizza & Subs
Considered the best pizza in Port Huron according to a few locals we chatted with, Casey’s is a prime spot for enjoying a few slices with a cold pint or craft cocktail. Not only did their Margherita pie please our palates, we were blown away by the turkey-tastic Pretzilla Rolls. Other specialties include burgers, tempura battered chicken tenders, and loaded fries, making Casey’s a top foodie destination in Port Huron.
To compliment some truly awesome eats, Casey’s has a solid cocktail program unique to the area. When it’s warm out and the doors are open, it’s hard to beat their patio.
