My first date with my wife (30 years ago) was at Pizza Inn
Anniston, Alabama.  Looked sort of like that,  long since torn down.  

Found one in Dallas a couple,of years ago. Old guy cooked us a pizza special.  
It was great .  

Pizza Hut thread got  me thinking

Old guys usually don't wash their hands after peeing and pooping.

Hope you enjoyed your feces stuffed crust.

I still eat at a pizza place like that

They took them out, but there used to be quarter operated TVs on each table

One opened back up around here awhile ago.

Buffet only. Attracted trashy folks.

That’s what 700degree oven is for

Anything going in that comes out sterile —including his hands

We would sometimes go to the one in Columbus, GA for lunch buffet early 80's.

We weren't supposed to wear BDUs in restaurants but the place was always packed with joes, enlisted and officer.

There was a guy named Lyle Clothier owned a dozen or more from Ft.Smith Arkansas down to Vicksburg Mississippi. He based his franchise in Memphis. Pizza was good and the first Lunch Buffet at a pizza joint I remember  He had a bar adjoining one near the Airport known as the "Inn One" it was a classy joint in the late 70's early 80's. The waitresses dressed like Radio City Rocketts.

We had Rec league sports banquets there all the time when I was a kid.  If you had to go to the bathroom, best just get a new drink when you come back unless you like your Coke with Parmigiano cheese and red pepper flakes.  I really don't remember much about the actual pizza.  It turned into a Pizza Den, then went away.
Link Posted: 2/17/2021 9:37:25 PM EST
In the late 80's we'd go to eat there.  They'd become like Cici's, so they were a buffet, all you can eat.  

I haven't seen one in business for years, though their buildings still live one as something else, around here anyway.
Link Posted: 2/17/2021 9:38:42 PM EST
There still one near me.

Man, there's a place i haven't even thought of inover 30 years, yet knew well.
Link Posted: 2/17/2021 9:50:01 PM EST
I 'member. There was one here at the mall when I was a kid. It was awesome. Salad bar had pepperoni on it. I developed a taste for pepperoni and red french which was basically what my "salad" consisted of. The pizza was really good too. There's still some in VA, & I plan to eat at one of them when I get a chance. There's one close to Myrtle Beach too, maybe between Conway & Myrtle, or there was the last time I was down. Left side of the road headed east.


How about Pappy's Pizza? It was damn good too. Not sure how widespread that chain was though.
Link Posted: 2/17/2021 9:51:02 PM EST
There are quite a few in central and eastern NC. I like their pizza buffet
Link Posted: 2/17/2021 9:55:02 PM EST
Pizza Inns were great.  As a 5th grader in the late 80s, I was a bigger fan of Pizza Hut with the BookIt free pizzas, but the Pizza Inns weren't bad.
Link Posted: 2/17/2021 9:55:07 PM EST
I vaguely remember Pizza Inn. It was right next to Mr. Steak.

I remember Shakey's Pizza a lot more.

I’ve been to a few back in the day.

Knew the girls who worked there.
Go help cleanup real quick for free access to the taps.
First and last time I've ever drank Killians Red.

Never been to one.  Next road trip will have to look for one.  I have been to a couple Cici's pizzas.  That's some cheap pizza.  
Link Posted: 2/17/2021 10:01:18 PM EST
Yep. They had the long communal tables. The pizza was good and we always had fun there.

My first job was at Pizza Inn when I was a Jr in HS.
Fun job.

ETA: One of the waiters stuffed chili pepper flakes in a waitresses' cigarette and left. I watched her light it and take a long drag . She choked really hard. I felt really bad.

The local Shakey's was the hot hang out when I was young.

Now I'm trying to remember the name of the place in San Diego that made the giant pizzas.

I loved Shakey's when I was a kid.

Growing up, we alternated between Pizza Inn or Ground Round for after church lunch most Sundays. I miss the eighties.
Link Posted: 2/17/2021 10:14:22 PM EST
There's one open in Franklinton La
Link Posted: 2/17/2021 10:14:29 PM EST
The one in my town closed down a long time ago but there are still a few in the area.

Oak Ridge and Morristown both had one a year or so ago, but I haven't checked to see if they survived the scamdemic.

We had both Pizza Inn and Shakey's back when I was a kid.   I remember the cool signs Shakey's had, but loved the beef and onion pizza at Pizza Inn.

I haven't eaten at one since the early/mid 90s.  I was surprised to see that particular one in mesquite tx still open when I drove by it a few months ago.

These still one in Salem MO.

Nice! It's the only place I can remember eating at as a kid in the 80's and then drinking at as an adult right before they closed.
Link Posted: 2/17/2021 10:28:49 PM EST
My hometown had a Pizza Hut and a Big Cheese Pizza next to each other, literally with 10 feet between the buildings and a Taco Tico about 10 feet from the Pizza Hut.  Pizza Inn was a bit further away, being caddy corner across the street.

Lot's of good memories from that intersection.

My friends and I would go there every day for the lunch buffet in the summer when we were in elementary school. $3.50 all you can eat.

There are a few pizza inns left in Oklahoma. Just none near my AO.

We still have a bunch here. Their chocolate chip pizza is the GOAT dessert pizza.

A waitress wanted me to make her a small pepperoni pizza. I placed a small pile of red pepper flakes under each pepperoni. She was NOT amused.

There's a Pizza Inn near us that has ignored our idiot governor's restaurant mask mandate.  They basically said "what's the point?"

We eat there at least once a week now.

Sorry, no more specifics.  The gestapo is likely listening.  If you are, F you!
