Pizza didn't catch on until its creator, unable to get a patent for his "dough sphere," popped his invention, unwittingly rendering it more fun to eat and less likely to roll away. Today's Groupon adds another dimension to the 2-D dish: for $10, you get $25 worth of hauntingly delicious pizza and more at Jailhouse Pizza, a prison-themed eatery located inside what was once the Meade County Jail. Famed to be the former reformatory for roustabouts such as Frank James and Hank William Sr., Jailhouse Pizza now pounds out 11 specialty pizzas ($10.99–$23.99), including The Electric Chair, made with sausage, pepperoni, and spicy peppers. The restaurant has retained its restraining-facility charms, with historical relics and photos lining its brick walls, hearkening back to the olden days of America, when the worst crime a man could commit was forgetting to pull up his bootstraps before lassoing his spittoon. Entice your tongue buds and goose bumps by viewing the full menu of pies, sandwiches, salads, and more before stopping by for a bite.


Four TripAdvisors give Jailhouse Pizza an average of four owl eyes. Nine Yahoo! Travelers give the restaurant a four-star average.

  • The pizza is some of the best I have ever had. Definitely much better than any chain. The wings are delicious as well and you can buy them by weight instead of piece! Much better in my opinion! – RAOW, TripAdvisor
  • Visited this restaurant several times. Service has been great and the food superb. Still haven't tried a pizza yet because the sandwiches are so good. – Steve L, Yahoo! Travel

Jailhouse Pizza

Though ghosts may or may not still haunt the halls of the old Meade County Jail, the ambrosial scent of pizza certainly fills the air, drawing living visitors to the ancient hoosegow. Housed in a weathered brick early 20th-century building that once famously locked up Hank Williams Sr., Jailhouse Pizza surrounds its guests with rich history. Its rickety metal cell doors and old-school vintage advertisements mingle with the wanted posters, faded photographs, and antique appliances such as 2009 cell phones found throughout the restaurant. Toppings such as classic pepperoni, olives, or sausage dot the landscapes of pizzas, as well as inventive flourishes such as spicy buffalo sauce, baked spaghetti, or sliced fried chicken. Tangy marinara and creamy cheese meld in oven-baked calzones and Stromboli, examples of the eatery's many Italian options.

A playfully spooky atmosphere permeates space, whether there's a birthday party with a private sleepover amid the century-old jail cells or a hunt for clues of the mysterious resident ghost, Bigsby. The Prisoner's Pardon Pizza Challenge dares truly courageous visitors to participate in a 60-minute two-person race to finish a 30-inch pizza, with winners earning a free meal and their picture on the coveted Hall of Fame.

All good!

service is ok, our server was impolite, bordering on rude but she did check our table frequently, pizza is good, it's worth going once.
