This Minnesota Pizza Place Is A Nostalgic Trip Back In Time
There's one pizza joint in the Land of 10,000 Lakes that will make you question what year it is. From arcade machines to old movie posters, this place is a trip back in time.
For me; pizza, video games, and old movies sound like the best combo. I went out of town and walked into what might be one of my favorite places.
The nostalgic pizza joint is located at the Southdale Mall in Edina, Minnesota. I was like a moth seeing a lightbulb when I saw the name looks just like 'Super Mario Bros.' The place is no other than DeLeo Bros. Pizza.
According to their website, they are a family-owned and operated New York Pizza Parlor. They combined the "New York Slice" with "Minnesota Nice". They even made sure to have an '80s inspired dining atmosphere, so make sure you bring some quarters for the arcade machines.
They even make their pizza dough balls on-site and have a family recipe of herbs, spices, and tomatoes. I ordered the 'Super DeLeo Bros' that comes with pepperoni, Italian sausage, mushrooms, green peppers, white onions, and black olives.
It was out of this world. The sauce was so good and I swear I could eat the whole pizza myself. Plus, being able to place arcade machines was a big plus. From 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off' to 'Mystic Pizza', the movie posters and wall décor took me back to a place I feel like I would go to as a child. They even have an old-school TV:
They also have a place at the Mall of America, but I would highly recommend their Edina location for pure nostalgia. Check out the video below:
