My first visit was 1970 and we've been their biggest fans ever since. The style has not changed in all those years, though the location has. As much as I miss the old place, it was too crowded and parking was near impossible, so despite the petitions everyone signed to save the old place, it's current location was for the better. My kids have loved this place since they were old enough to eat solid food, and now my grandkids are old enough to enjoy it as well. Three generations of gastronomic delight! We almost always order the confusion, but any combo is great. The edge pieces are crispy goodness and the center cuts are heavenly prime juiciness - two great styles in one pizza.\r
The atmosphere is relaxing, fun, informal, and you never feel as though you have to tell the kids to quiet down. The bar is fully stocked and they mix their drinks liberally. Cocktail prices are not cheap but you do get your money's worth. \r
The pizza is best enjoyed when eaten hot & fresh as served. Even after it cools down for a couple hours, it's still great. Leftovers out of the fridge at home the next day are still good but just not the same. Besides the usual microwave treatment, I've tried warming in the oven, warming in an iron skillet (covered and uncovered), frying in a little EVOO and/or butter, steamed, or just eaten cold. Any other ideas? I may try deep frying it some day but that seems a little extreme.\r
With the passing of George a few years ago (I think it was 2004), the Kukar family is doing a wonderful job of maintaining a great institution. Long live the House of Pizza!
Pros: Ambience, value, easy freeway access
