Over the past two years, Pizza House
has earned top honors in The Michigan
Daily "Best of Ann Arbor" Poll for their
extensive variety of delectable pizzas,
entrees and munchies. Since its humble
beginning in 1985, Pizza House has
flourished into something of a take-out,
delivery and dining-in Mecca, with an
immaculate menu of appetizers, salads,
sandwiches, pasta dishes, chipatis,
desserts and, of course, pizza to satisfy
any craving. As this school year comes
to a close and the votes have been cast
for all that which is great in Ann Arbor,
it is no surprise that for a third-consecu-
tive year, Pizza House has proven to be
a favorite dining and delivery establish-
ment among Michigan Daily readers.
Pizza House, located on Church Street, has been a campus favorite for years.
Whether you feel like dining-in or
carrying-out, a Pizza House appetizer or
salad can complement a main course or
be a meal in itself. Their many appetizer
selections range from standard fare, like
chicken fingers, buffalo wings and
onion rings, to more unique treats, such
as their mini-pizzas, pepperoni stix and
highly-acclaimed three cheese nachos.
If you fancy a salad, they offer over ten.
different varieties, from antipasto to taco
When it comes time for the main
course, Pizza House serves up a wide
variety of fantastic sandwiches, sub-
marines and savory pasta entrees to
pleasure any palate. You can order cold
and hot sandwiches and subs alike, with
top-sellers being the chicken parmesan
sub, Georgia reuben and Italian sub.
Their Big as a House Burger certainly
lives up to its name; a half pound of beef
and a plethora of toppings to choose
from give this burger legendary status.
Since this is Ann Arbor, Pizza House
has not forgotten the vegetarian diner; a
Big as a House Burger can be made with
a black bean patty on request. As for
their delightful pasta selections, they
offer everything from ravioli and
spaghetti to lasagna and fettuccini alfre-
do, providing a taste of Italy right here in
When it comes to chipatis, Pizza
House proves that no one does it better,
with a wide array of dressings and top-
pings to complement this unique salad-
bread hybrid. The Original Chipati is the
most popular of the chipati family; how-
ever, the chicken ceaser, steamed veg-
etable and chicken ranch chipatis, as
well as the spinach-version, the
Chipopeye, are not to be forgotten. To
complete the masterpiece that is chipati,
a spicy, yet creamy Pizza House original
chipati sauce or your choice of a salad
dressing accompanies the goods.
Pizza House serves up a mean pizza,
hence the name. The choices are end-
less, as they offer a traditional or thin
crust pizza, as well as their famous
Chicago Deep Dish or Stuffed Pizza.
Their specialty pizzas will solve any
problems of having to choose toppings;
they feature many interesting and
unique varieties, such as the chicken
alfredo, seafood, chicken salsa, salad
pizza and Southwestern BBQ pizzas.
These specialty pizzas, along with cal-
zones, pizza pockets and matzo pizzas
are offered for those looking to liven up
their dining experience.
Saving room for dessert is a must at
Pizza House. Regardless of your tastes,
they have a tempting treat to satisfy any
sweet tooth. The Snickers Pie and New
York Cheesecake are House Specials,
and their more than 20 flavors of shakes
and malts are fantastically mind-bog-
gling. For the more upscale diners, a
scrumptious tiramisu is also offered.
Convenience is key for the Pizza
House customer. All these dishes can be
enjoyed in the restaurant or in your
home. Pizza House has over 40 drivers
on staff, which means that fabulous food
is only a phone call away. Also, Pizza
House is open from 10:30 a.m. until
4:00 a.m., seven days a week, for both
dininglin and delivery. Therefore, there
are only 45.5 hours a week when you
cannot reach the Pizza House crew.
If you find yourself hungry after read-
ing this, give the folks down at Pizza
House a call or stop in to experience
some great food and service for your-
