Welcome to The Pizza Neighborhood


This cute little set-up has a very Mr. Rogers feel to it. The train trolley stops at your table, and the 'King' looks a lot like King Friday. Perhaps that's what inspired this novelty. You'll only find this feature at the New Albany, Indiana location.

Either way, I think it's super cool. Ironically, we used to live in that area, and I have never been there. Oh, and a confession...I've never tried Pizza King. Perhaps it's time to get out of my food comfort zone, but only if it's delivered to me by a choo-choo train.

Pizza King's History

The history of Pizza King is pretty interesting. Even though there are many locations, each one is different. Unlike a typical franchise, owners are free to do pretty much anything they want with their shop with one exception: They must get all of their food supplies from the same supplier.

Gaslight In Huntingburg A Hidden Pizza Bar & Grill Heaven
