800 Degrees Three Fires now open

Folks in the southern part of Fort Wayne have a new -- and delicious -- pizza option to consider when dining out.

The second location for the popular 800 Degrees restaurant on Lima Road opened on Saturday. 800 Degrees Three Fires (5215 Illinois Road) is so named because of the three fires used to cook its wood-fired pizzas. It features two wood-fired ovens, similar to the one in the restaurant's first location, as well as a wood-fired hearth, which general manager Matt Rogers calls the first of its kind in Fort Wayne.

According to the restaurant's Facebook page, Three Fires set an all-time sales record for 800 Degrees restaurants on Saturday, Rogers posted Sunday.

In addition to its specialty pizzas, the new restaurant offers a variety of small plates and a broader selection of regional craft beers. Soon, Three Fires will also have a seasonal menu with wood-grilled entrees.
