H is for Taco Pizza??
Well ok for me it was more about the girls and the games see I hate pizza except one and that its Happy Joe's Taco Pizza! This was a new thing for me and I loved it. Happy Joe's is where you hung out for Birthday Partys see they had little coin up rides in the front with an Ice Cream Parlor and a pizza joint and arcade in the back. This place was a dream come true.
I still do not understand why they closed here some would say it was the fantastic local pizza that ran them out for me I think it was the video game crash of the 80's.
Let us get back to the Pizza, Happy Joe's claims to be the first pizza restaurant to offer a taco pizza (a pizza with refried bean/tomato sauce, cheese, lettuce, tomato and taco chips). After a franchisee suggested adding tacos to the menu, Joe Whitty invented the restaurant's best-selling product, the Taco Pizza. The taco pizza restores some faith into me when it came to the pie that everybody loves. But soon after they also introduced the BLT pizza as well OMG!!
It's cool to hear that Happy Joe's is still around and our now in seven states and over 50 restaurants strong. I have added taking me kids to the bucket list this Summer. Maybe heading towards Moline or Iowa to check this place out. Per their website tho it seems to be more of a restaurant then a Birthday Party destination but that is ok it will be worth the hour drive. Have you ever been to Happy Joe's? Have you been to one lately, if so do they still have ice cream and video games? Let me know and don't forget to check out some of the other bloggers during the A to Z Challenge.
