The kitchen crew gets creative with their specialty pizzas, which play dress up to create pies of the taco, bacon cheeseburger, and mexican variety. The restaurants cater to kids with a slew of entertainment options, from Thomas the Tank Engine rides to game rooms with air hockey and video games to the cheerful servers who are ready and willing to eat homework assignments.

What to Drink

When to Go
To get the most bang for your buck, stop in Monday–Saturday, 11 a.m.–2 p.m. for the all-you-can-eat lunch buffet. If that doesn't work, aim for a Tuesday, when guests receive a second pizza for half price.
While You're Waiting
Before making your own pizza disappear, marvel at the tricks and illusions of professional magician Eric Z. He appears every Monday night at the downtown location and every second and fourth Thursday night at the Lee's Summit location.
Vegans and folks with gluten allergies have all sorts of options at Waldo's. The restaurant offers a full gluten-free menu—including a locally made pizza crust made with rice flour—and tops its dairy-free pies with soy cheese.
83% of Urbanspooners like Next Door Pizza & Pub and nine Yelpers give it an average of four stars. Next Door Pizza was also featured on Beerlord. One of Next Door's bartenders, Amanda Woolery, was named Best Female Bartender 2010 by The Pitch.
Liberty, Missouri, is slightly out of the delivery zone of most Chicago pizzerias, so when Jason and Mattie Ransom moved there, they needed another way to get their fix of deep-dish pizza. They decided to try their hand at recreating their favorite pie from scratch, unknowingly laying the groundwork for Dish Famous Stuffed Pizza.
The Ransom’s homespun recipe for Chicago-style deep-dish pizza has lasted more than 15 years, first gracing the tables of their restaurant before spreading out to grocery stores and forward-thinking vending machines. At their eatery, they still sling dough each day, complementing deep-dish disks with thin-crust and hand-tossed pies, half-pound Black Angus burgers, Chicago-style italian beef sandwiches, and 50 different bottles of imported and craft beer.
Wheat State Pizza! has more kinds of pizza than a high school football coach has inspiring halftime speeches. The abundance comes from a rainbow of options diners mix-and-match to create unique combinations, starting with a whole wheat, white, or gluten-free crust topped with homemade sauces in flavors such as traditional red and whipped cream cheese. On that base, diners can construct a masterpiece pie from a palette of more than 30 toppings including standards such as pepperoni and sausage along with gourmet variants sunflower seeds, avocado, and soy cheese. Though diners don't need to assemble their own combination to enjoy a pie, as, like the Christmas list of a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, the menue includes 15 types of specialty pizza. Creations such as the chicken carbonara treat mouths to a velvety blend of alfredo sauce, chicken, mushrooms, mozzarella, and bacon atop a hand-tossed or thin crust. Non-pizza options include the Crispy Chicken Salad and philly cheese steak sandwiches with chicken or beef. Diners can end their meals on a sweet note with one of the restaurant's medley of dessert pizzas, which layer wheat crust with saccharine toppings such as cream-cheese frosting, and apple pie filling.
