John's Incredible Pizza Co. graces guests with acres of incandescent entertainment options and a fully stocked buffet ($9.49 value, $1.50 value for drinks). In addition to a slew of soups, salads, pasta, desserts, and traditional pizza choices, the buffet brandishes a bouquet of specialty pizza creations, including spicy peanut-butter, barbecue chicken ranch, and alfredo pizza.
People need energy to play, so meals at John's Incredible Pizza Company might start at a salad bar with 40 different veggies and toppings, before proceeding to an inventive selection of pizzas including barbecue chicken ranch, spicy peanut butter, and standards like pepperoni and cheese. There is also a build-your-own pasta bar and a dessert buffet with everything from fresh baked cinnamon rolls to soft-serve ice cream cones?all of it is meant to fuel a good time. That takes place on bumper cars and interactive super-bikes. Old school arcade enthusiasts can engage in classic Pac-Man battle while redemption tickets whir out of machines, granting winners access to a prize counter stocked with lava lamps and Nintendo and XBOX 360 consoles.
When Round Table Pizza closed after 20 years of operation, the community was saddened. This was the place where families would eat together on a Friday night, the place where youth sports teams would celebrate after a victory or angrily eat chicken wings after a defeat. Luckily, a new family of owners reopened the eatery to keep Round Table's legacy alive. They even rehired the same staff. In fact, the only thing that changed was the name. Now called Road House Pizza, the restaurant serves a familiar menu of pies, comforting diners with old favorites such as barbecue chicken, Hawaiian, and veggie supreme.
Fresh ingredients and toppings decorate the disk- and sub-shaped fare dappling Smith's Pizza & Subs' menu. Appetizers such as garlic bread, mozzarella sticks, and buffalo wings warm up tongues for main-event dishes including sundry pastas and subs. Pizzas arrive at tables with preselected toppings, such as the veggie deluxe's mushrooms, bell peppers, and garlic, or challenge patrons to come up with their own tasty combinations with toppings including breakfast bacon, olives, and meatballs. The eatery welcomes patrons to nibble within its dining room or request carryout or delivery (additional $2, call to verify location is within delivery range) to introduce cuisine to a favorite strip-mall parking lot.
Wake snoozing taste buds with a hearty starter such as mozzarella suprema breadsticks adorned with natural cheese and herbs ($3.95 side; $5.95 large) before moving onto a signature fire-roasted pie. An authentic terra-cotta oven blasts RedBrick's prided circles with more than 1,000 degrees of heat, alchemically transforming their base dough into crispy gold in less than three minutes. Enjoy stationary drive-in dining with a bacon-cheeseburger pizza topped with ground beef and three kinds of cheese ($17.95 for a 14"), or graze on the veggie gourmet works, which comes loaded with a Peter Piper's worth of fresh vegetables including bell peppers, artichokes, and mushrooms, swaddled in your choice of a vegetarian red or white sauce ($17.95 for a 14"). Create-your-own pies are also available, providing palate-pleasing fill-in-the-blanks for the munching mad-libbest. Yowling sweet teeth can be silenced with a dessert of gourmet gelato or a surprise dinner visit from the dentist's wife, the librarian.
If a great white shark approaches you, punching it in the snout might be your wisest course of action. At Anya's Pizza, though, you're advised to just give in?its Great White, featuring a medley of pesto, chicken, mushrooms, artichokes, and onions, is one of eight specialty pies better gobbled up than struck. Anya's build-your-own pies come with a selection of more than 15 toppings ranging from shrimp to jalape?os; other Italian staples such as tortellini with alfredo sauce and pepperoni rolls make an appearance on the menu. The cooks also wake up bright and early to serve hot breakfasts, such as a breakfast quesadilla or french toast, instead of leaving a box of cold pizza on the restaurant's doorstep.
