Cristian, son of Giovanni of Giovanni's restaurant near Tabarka and his new wife Cassie opened their pizza and wings restaurant today. It is on the north side of the Carretera just past the Casa de Waffle and car wash, where the greek place was a few years ago and adjacent to the pool supply place.

They have hand made pizzas, wings, beer, wine and soda's for now. A great variety of toppings and the pizza I had was the best I have tasted in Mexico. Thin crispy crust, not too much sauce and enough toppings to make the slice heavy and tasty. Cristian cooks the pizzas in an outdoor clay or brick oven. I didn't get too close to it as it was hot out already LOL.

They will be open daily except Wed from 1PM - 9 PM and possibly later on weekends if there is business late in the evenings.

Is that the correct name or is it Funky Monkey. Are there signs out alerting new people to it's location?

The name, from the menu, is acutally "Junky Munky"
phone is 331 038 4129
Junkymunky@hotmail.com

There is a big sign and balloons but it is easy to pass it by. If you are driving from the west you would turn at the end of the first new set of topes, or what is left of them. They had a sandwich board sign out today with balloons on it.

Small pizzas ranged from 70 - 90 pesos and large from 90-125, beer was 18-22 pesos.

Thank you. The only reason I asked about the name was that some bozo on TOB said it was Funky Monkey.

I went to have lunch there today but it was closed. It is called the Junky Munky and their tag line on the sign is "Just One Toke Over The Line".........this is intriguing and will require another visit.

What time did you go by Bob? I went past the place a few times this afternoon and they were open.
I think the "One toke over the line" tag is after the song. Cassie is Bryan James sister and her step dad is Flip from the Tall Boys band. Lots of old Rock posters on the walls.

And if you don't remember the song you are too young LOL Smokealot

We went back there for lunch today. Cristian and Cassie are perfect hosts. We had pizza and chicken wings. Both were very good and we will be back for more. The prices were excellent.

One toke over the line sweet Jesus
One toke over the line
Sittin' downtown in a railway station
One toke over the line

Awaitin' for the train that goes home, sweet Mary
Hopin' that the train is on time
Sittin' downtown in a railway station
One toke over the line

Whoooo do you love, I hope it's me
I've bin a changin', as you can plainly see
I felt the joy and I learned about the pain that my momma said
If I should choose to make a part of me, surely strike me dead
Now I'm one toke over the line sweet Jesus
One toke over the line
Sittin' downtown in a railway station
One toke over the line
I'm waitin' for the train that goes home sweet Mary
Hopin' that the train is on time
Sittin' downtown in a railway station
One toke over the line

I bin away a country mile,
Now I'm returnin' showin' off a smile
I met all the girls and loved myself a few
Ended by surprise like everything else I've been through
It opened up my eyes and now I'm
One toke over the line sweet Jesus
One toke over the line
Sittin' downtown in a railway station
Don't you just know I waitin' for the train that goes home sweet Mary
Hopin' that the train is on time
Sittin' downtown in a railway station
One toke over the line

Don't you just know I waitin' for the train that goes home sweet Mary
Hopin' that the train is on time
Sittin' downtown in a railway station
One toke over the line

I want to be
One toke over the line sweet Jesus
One toke over the line
Sittin' downtown in a railway station
One toke over the line
Don't you just know I waitin' for the train that goes home sweet Mary
Hopin' that the train is on time
Sittin' downtown in a railway station
One toke over the line
Sittin' downtown in a railway station
One toke over line
One toke, one toke over the line

The Lawrence Welk clip is just surreal. You can't do parody like that. Nobody would buy it. Priceless.

First time at the Junky Monkey tonight.

Sat and had a cerveza with Fernando from Lake Taco while my order was being cooked.

Saw Hound Dawg on the way out and had a good chat with him.

Headed home with some good smelling food.

Had the Junky Monkey pizza without banana and an order of wings. The kids had a Pepperoni pizza.

All was great. Great food, great people. Will definitely be back.

Good luck Junky Monkey Surte

Seriously GOOD pizza! Went there and ordered a pizza to go...from ordering to leaving with a piping hot pizza was 1/2 an hour. I sat on the patio and had a diet coke while waiting.
Lovely hint of garlic in the sauce...the whole thing was lip smackin' good and will become a regular with us.
Outside patio is smoke friendly and dog friendly. I predict another pizza oven in their immediate future.

What kind of pizza did you order and how does it compare to other places that make pizza at Lakeside?

We're pretty basic in our pizza choices. Mushrooms, onions, pepperoni. It's the sauce that makes it extra special...all other pizza's we've had were limited to a sauce that was "red" and bland.
Here, we've only had pizza from Domino's and the Italian restaurant opposite the Hacienda Steak House. But this pizza was the best we've had just about anywhere in years...and that includes Toronto.
