They (Capperelli's) had the best deep pan Pizza anywhere.
I believe it is, I remember in the mid 90's they had a location on Evers-410 at loehman's village. I asked him if they used to own the places on Military (One across from bud jones, and the second at shoppers city next to the radio shack) and he said yes. The pizza was also so good, as were the calzones.

Anyone remember Conan's pizza here in SA in the 80's they had a location in I think the spot that Colonna's took over in the 90's. I thought they had some great deep dish pizza.

Loved Conan's Pizza. Great Deep Dish and Cool Frazetta Paintings, of Conan, all over the Wall. Colonna's Had the Best Canadian Bacon, I had ever eaten. HHW

That is the long strip of former Tobin property that has been turned into a rambling park that follows Salado Creek in northeastern SA.
Where is the park ? Where is it accessed?
I'd like to visit next time I'm in SA.
Thanks

While I never ate there, I remember seeing Pac Man Pizza. My parents used to give a ride to an old lady who lived in the old Hawaiian Themed apartments on Oblate and Jackson Keller. We drove by Pac-Man pizza everty Sunday. I was just in the area two weeks ago, and I think I saw that the location is now some kind of Vietnamese place. I have always wondered if there was some kind of copyright infringement with the name "Pac-Man" pizza.

Yeah, from all the newspaper articles I've read, it was only a nine hole course. But it was only opened for a very short time, I'm talking just a couple of months, before it closed forever.

I remember this!!! Before the internet, we would buy our concert tickets at Drug Emporium. They had a black binder with a poor copy of the Alamadome seating chart. You picked your tickets off of the cra&&y little chart.
