At 1:30 a.m., the phone starts ringing at 219 G St. in downtown Davis.

The first call comes from a study group pulling an all-nighter, ordering the Student Special: 15 percent off any extra-large pizza with one or more toppings.

Seconds later, the phone rings again. This time, it’s a group of freshman roommates, asking for the Residence Hall Delivery Deal: one large one-topping pizza for $12.99 plus tax.

In the late hours of the evening, Woodstock’s Pizza is there, serving and delivering what has been voted The Best of Davis four years and counting.

“We’ll get a rush of calls in the last half hour of business because students are up late partying or studying,said Dee Clark, general manager at the Davis location, which opens at 11 a.m. every day and closes at 2 a.m. on Thursdays through Saturdays.We’re there for those late-night munchies.
