Back in high school, all the Scots went to Pizza Baron after football games. (This was over a decade ago, so things have probably changed since then.) The beloved hangout still exists, with its long bench seating and small counter salad bar. It’s an interesting restaurant. It is not a place for the hip or the conoisseur. It’s pretty low-end, with an assortment of video games that can drive any adult mad. But, they have the most delicious, cracker crisp, thin crust pepperoni pizza. If you are willing to venture to East County (122nd and Division), check it out. So very cheap, especially on Monday nights. Don’t forget, however, it’s not Pizzicato…

    Another locale for that “pizza parlor” cracker-crust we all grew up with is Stark Street Pizza off 92nd and Stark. Just like the old days of Shakey’s!

    Didn’t the old putt-putt golf used to be right around there?

    My high school (Central Catholic) pizza hangout was Vincente’s on 20th and Hawthorne. I went there so often during my senior year that they’d occasionally give me a whole pizza for free to take back to school with me (it was a “we left this one in the oven a little long…why don’t you take it” sort of thing). Whenever I come back to town a trip over to Vincente’s is always in store. One thing I like: they have a dish of free Ande’s mints by the register.
