The Factory bakes sizzling pizza pies and assembles an assortment of specialty ice-cream dishes in a classic checker-floored parlor atmosphere. Cooks paint Hunt Brothers pizza ($9.49/large) in selections from a palette of toppings, and Hunt Brothers wings ($2.79/5 pieces) play pranks on unsuspecting taste buds using buckets of zestily flavored heat-sauce. A specialty sundae puts out flavor fires with creamy scoops of Blue Bell ice cream slathered in syrups and more ($4.25). The Factory’s thick blended milkshakes cover a five-part flavor spectrum, from the familiar chocolate to the unsettled and constantly plotting conspiracy theories about melting that come with Mocha Madness ($3.45). To avoid overheating, hot dogs lazily recline on soft buns, appreciating the cool balm of relish and mustard ($1.50). Customers can also call in orders for pizza and wings and may request to speak to specific food items if they're available.
What sets the Hungry Howie's Pizza menu apart from other pizza parlors are the flavored-crust options that inject eight ingredients including butter, onion, ranch, and garlic herb into the commonly discarded pizza part. Specialty pizzas include the philly cheesesteak and the Howie Maui with ham, smoked bacon, and pineapple. DIY diners, on the other hand, can add their own toppings and try tasty wings, subs, and Howie bread, which comes in buttered garlic, three cheese, Cajun, and sticky-sweet cinnamon sugar.
Hungry Howie?s Pizza is a franchise that took flight back in 1973, when Jim Hearn converted a hamburger shop into a pizzeria. Since then, Hungry Howie?s remarkable success has forced other pizza franchises to start making their own crusts out of substances other than chipboard, aluminum siding, and old Styx LPs.
