121 W 4th St, Long Beach, CA 90802

“Death to Piggy” (House tomato sauce, shredded mozzarella, pepperoni, house-made Italian sausage, house-made meatball crumble, bacon) & “Zombie Queen” (Tropical, white sangria, made w/ fresh, organic pineapple juice, Sabé gold, and a red blend)

Bringing the aesthetic of horror-core mixed with high-brow-to-low-brow food offerings, it’s home to one of the few Miller High Life tap handles while offering a slew of independent beer offerings and creative cocktails.

The 4th Horseman has created a viable, community-driven hangout, and Chef Adam Schmalz’s style is wonderfully distinct: not Neapolitan-style, not New York-style, his pizzas are odes to the Californian culture of fusion; a chewy, not-too-thick-not-too-thin crust that comes with an abundance of options.
