Remember Pizza Inn? (Page 2 of 3)

That was a treat when I was a kid. My parents would order a couple of pizzas and they would bring pitchers of DrPepper and Pepsi to the table where you poured your own. It was some good pizza.

Holy FUCK, I suspect we were on the same team... If not the same state.

Fresh drink from the fountain, and always root beer at that.

Don’t forget Mazzio’s or even better Ken’s Pizza.  I haven’t seen a Ken’s Pizza restaurant in probably 35 years, but there are still a few Mazzio’s in the Tulsa, OK area.

Pizza Inn was our #5 choice after Ken’s, Mazzio’s, Shakey’s and Crystal’s.

Used to have one in my hometown in north Alabama, there's one in Fayetteville Tn but it hasn't been there too long, it's not an old school one.

Shakey's Pizza... Now that's a name I've not heard in... A long time.

I LOVED the thin crust it had. I can still taste the deluxe with the black olives.

Loved Pizza Inn back in the day. They had a sourdough pizza back in 1997 that was awesome.

For years and years we had 3
Pizza Inn locations in my town.   Now we are down to 2.

Open super late and had a large cheap  house salad with lots of cheese and meat combined with a house dressing that capped off a night of partying late.

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.

It’s still there (the one in Conway, SC) it’s right on 501 as you pass through Conway, you’re right, it’s on the left if you’re headed to the beach, there’s also one in Lancaster SC. I live near Conway and at least one of the kids wants to eat there for their birthday every year, I love their thin crust!

I worked at a Godfather's for a couple of years until it closed, man do I miss that place.

The last stand alone Pizza Inn here closed at around the same time as Godfather's (mid 90's) and they built a Whataburger in its place. Then a couple of years ago a new Pizza Inn opened in the strip center two doors down from the Whataburger. It lasted about a year and I never went in, but I heard it was more like CiCi's than the old Pizza Inn.

There's nothing like the smell of a pizza joint on a busy night.

The one I worked at was right next to a movie theater and a popular night club. It would get crazy busy on Friday and Saturday nights. Huge packs of teenagers.

On regular weeknights it would usually just be just me (16 years old) and the bartender/waiter. After closing and like clockwork the bartender would go back to the restroom. As soon as I heard the door squeak open I would grab my small bucket and hold it under the Coors tap. When the door squeaked back open I would duck back in the kitchen and chug down the beer.

Yes, and I couldn’t remember the name in the Pizza Hut thread.

There was one in Elizabeth City, NC while I was young. It’s no longer there, but I remember how good the pizza was. And the chocolate chip dessert pizza was great!
Link Posted: 2/17/2021 11:43:14 PM EST
I think there’s still one open in Knoxville, TN

Man I remember my family going there, Foghat Slow Ride jamming on the jukebox. It was thin crust goodness.

There was one in Jacksonville, NC/ Camp Lejeune a long time ago. Tuesday and Thursday nights they would have the buffet. I remember going there and eating with friends a lot.
Link Posted: 2/17/2021 11:59:16 PM EST
I really liked Pizza Inn back in the early 80s (Austin, TX).  The best pizza was Mr. Gattis, but Pizza Inn was second place.  This was before they went to buffet style.

Funny thing about pizza in the 80s, at least here.  Most of the places were pretty freaking expensive.  Mr. Gattis was my favorite, and it's almost like their prices haven't changed since the 80s.  A large pizza, about right for two teenage boys to split, was about $15 then.  Add in a couple large sodas and you were in about $10 each.  That was a lot for a highschool kid, especially when you could get a hamburger and soda for $3.50.

We still have 6 Pizza Inns in Missouri.  I always liked their pizza buffets.  We used to go to the one in Flat River / Park Hills when I was a kid; they always had a good arcade .  I don't remember when it closed (maybe in '96 or '97).  I'm not sure when the one in Rolla closed either; I think it was still open when I left Rolla in 2007.

I loved Pizza Inn when we still had one local.

Pizza Hut has degenerated into crap sadly.

My older brother worked at one in high school. When my parents finally moved out of my childhood home a few years ago, I bet there were 20 plastic pizza inn cups stashed in the back of the cabinet. I miss my brother daily.
Link Posted: 2/18/2021 2:49:50 AM EST
The Pizza Inns here are called Luigi's Pizza. Still the same old guys running them, same 80's decor, same good pizza, they're thin crust is best.

Buy one get next size smaller free coupons. I'm 6'4", best friend was 6'7", we'd destroy an extra large and a large on Saturday nights.

Yup,  I remember Shakey's very fondly from when I was a kid.  Also enjoyed Mr. Gatti's Pizza a lot, too.

Screen name fits.

OP, we had a Pizza Inn in my little town when I was a kid.  For a long time it was just that and a DQ.  The Pizza Inn served pizza, lasagna, spaghetti, and burgers.  Great food, and great memories of seeing everyone there after the football game on Friday or on Saturday night.

You should give it a try. Having seen the shit you eat, a little ass crust would be an improvement.

I remember going there as a kid. The adults would drink beer and kids played arcade games while waiting for the pizzas.

We had one here when I was growing up. Video games, cheap buffet, and awesome thin crust pizza.

We would circle sonic, drive through town, circle through pizza inn.  It was a lot like Dazed and Confused

I think the closest one to me now is in Jonesboro Arkansas, and when we go there the kids and wife on hibachi  and not nostalgic Pizza

That cracker crust thin and crispy was the shit. There are only 3 of them left in Virginia now. The closest one is 1.5 hours away. There used to be 3 of them in my town alone back in the 70's and early 80's

That was where they shined !!!
Cracker crust wasn’t common in southern pizza places.  
Those pitchers of iced tea and later (beer) washed it down nicely.
