Going beyond the slices to serve a large variety of items at Ryan’s Famous Pizza

It’s been more than a year since the Lunch Bunch has had the pleasure to dine at Ryan’s Famous Pizza and Subs. While a lot has changed at the restaurant, the delicious food remains the same.

The once-tiny pizzeria updated its decor, expanded to include more seating and added a large, attractive bar area where patrons can get good food while catching a game.

We ordered the 10 piece teriyaki wings as a starter, and Buck thought them mighty tasty. We also shared a meat calzone that is stuffed with pepperoni, sausage, ground beef, ham, bacon and extra cheese. Our large pizza was half pepperoni and mushrooms and half Hawaiian with pineapple, ham, pizza sauce and extra cheese. Between the four of us, we polished off the whole pie.

I had to order my favorite, the epic Pizz-and-wich. The Roman has pepperoni, ham, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes and onions wrapped in pizza dough. Then it is baked and served warm and a must-have for all sandwich lovers.

Dessert included the cheesecake and triple layer chocolate cake, as well as the homemade fried ice cream.
