A flurry of activity fills the kitchen at Ollie & Jax Pub 'n Pizza, where staffers prepare flatbreads, pizza crusts, pasta sauce, french fries, and other ingredients by hand in-house. These freshly baked flatbreads envelop sandwiches such as chicken parmesan and spicy steak and ranch, and the alfredo-and-marinara Ollie & Jax signature sauce tops plates of penne or angel-hair pastas. Pizzas with thin, traditional, or gluten-free crusts don specialty toppings such as spinach and ricotta, spicy chicken in honey-habanero sauce, or the Award-Winning White, whose blend of garlic sauce, cheeses, tomato, and onion can be pinned to diners' lapels next to their 4-H ribbons. Nine flat-screen high-definition TVs dapple the dining-room walls, where they broadcast sports such as NCAA basketball and NHL hockey games. Ollie & Jax also hosts special events, such as car-and-bike shows.
