Mind Your Business: Online Readers Offer Their Favorite Pizzas in the Tri-Cities | Business
A very important party is approaching. (And no, I’m not talking about Valentine’s Day.)
According to the US Census Bureau, Wednesday is National Pizza and Bagel Day. In honor of the day, the Kingsport Times News has asked our online readers and subscribers which Kingsport or Tri-Cities restaurant has your favorite pizza.
Over 400 people commented on our Facebook post with votes for their favorite pizza. Although reviewers offered a wide range of options, one pizzeria got an overwhelming number of votes – Italian Village.
I take my counting duties very seriously when it comes to counting your Facebook votes in situations like these, but I lost count after I ran out of space on my first post-it. Italian Village got more than 100 votes. I too have a high regard for the Italian pizza and pasta restaurant located in the Fort Henry mall. (Their creamy Italian dressing is wonderful, as is their baked spaghetti).
Some reviewers voted for Italian Village for its fast and reliable service. But one woman remembered the pizzeria for other nostalgia-related reasons.
“Italian Village… My husband took me there on a date the first time I came to Kingsport with him,” Hannah Miller Powell said via Facebook. “We ended up getting married and living in Kingsport. Now we enjoy Italian Village pizza with our kids.
Italian Village wasn’t the only pizzeria to receive multiple votes.
Kingsport’s Italianos got the second most votes, followed by Greg’s Pizza (Johnson City), Chef’s Pizza, Galaxy Pizza and Angry Italian (Bristol).
What caught my attention, however, was the number of different locations that were suggested. I was struck by how many options there actually are in the area, and many that I had never heard of.
Reviewers suggested Boomershine Pizzeria (Bluff City), Roma Pizza and Italian Restaurant 2 (Church Hill), Simms Pizzeria (Johnson City), Red Dog On Main Taproom & Eatery (Rogersville), Doughmaker’s Pizza (Norton) and many more .
I hope this list will not only give readers an idea of which pizzerias do it best in the Tri-Cities, but will also serve as a scroll-worthy list. and consider before your next pizza adventure.
