Selma’s Chicago Pizzeria & Tap Room
31781 Camino Capistrano
By Allison Jarrell
Selma’s Chicago Pizzeria co-owners Eric Miller and Mike Phillips Jr. celebrated the restaurant’s opening with a Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting on March 10.
Local pizza lovers will likely recognize Selma’s from their other locations in San Clemente, Rancho Santa Margarita and Ladera Ranch. The San Juan Capistrano pizzeria features an outdoor patio and seating, a full bar with 20 beers on tap, two private dining rooms, a banquet room to accommodate larger parties, plenty of televisions for sports fans and the same warm atmosphere as the preceding restaurants.
“We have been very happy with the warm reception in San Juan Capistrano and look forward to serving the community for years to come,” Miller said.
Selma’s menu offers affordable Italian dining, including dishes like pasta, paninis, homemade appetizers, soups made from scratch and, of course, pizza—from deep dish and thin crust varieties to gluten free offerings. Happy hour is all day on Monday and Tuesday through Friday from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.
