How could Dayton have a pizza place for 50 years, and most people have not been there ?
Let’s break it down with our original bullet form platform we have used since 2008.
HERE’S THE SKINNY on HOAGIES PIZZA HOUSE:
— There is one Hoagies Pizza location that is left. It is located at 6128 North Dixie Drive. Other locations in
Dayton on N. Main St, Airway Rd, and Brandt Pike have closed over the years.
— They do a lot of business, when patrons get “to go” orders then drive across the street from the Dixie Twin Drive In Theater. Pizza and car drive in’s are a great combo.
— There is a small dining room inside if you go up a few steps. Most orders look like they are placed “to go.”
— Hoagie’s Pizza Dough is made fresh each day, as is the sauce. Family owned for 50 years, and dough is made by the same family.
We have now been to Hoagies Pizza House three times to get exclusive photos and scoop as always. Not a drive by, we have eaten our way through each visit.
After sampling most of the menu, we have come up with “Must Eats” for every Dayton Foodie to enjoy.
“MUST EATS” at HOAGIES PIZZA HOUSE:
— THEIR PIZZA, ANY PIZZA , ANY TOPPINGS:
Whether it is the deluxe, or a pepperoni, this is the main attraction. One of the best pizzas we had here was a pepperoni, anchovy, onion, green pepper and mushroom pizza. It was epic. May we suggest extra sauce and well done on all you pizzas?
— THE LASAGNA:
It has a meat sauce and is served with a salad. This baked dish wan much better than we expected. Lots of gooey cheese and sauce, it was a little like our grandma’s lasagna. Get an order of garlic bread and go to town on this dish. It might be worth asking for extra sauce, because there is plenty of cheese on this bad boy. They even give you packets of Parmesan Cheese too.
— THE FAMOUS HOAGIE SANDWICH:
This is their most popular sub or sandwich on the menu. Meats include Ham , Salami and Pepperoni, served with provolone cheese, onion, tomatoes, lettuce and green peppers on a toasted french sub bun. Other toppings include hot banana peppers, green olives and mayo.
We finally got to try Hoagie’s Pizza House, 50 years in the making ! Don’t wait as long as we did to try this pizza !
Give it a carryout shout yourself, and if you are going to the Dixie Twin Drive In .. fawghetabout it and get a pie for sure. Pizza and a show is the way to go.
