All-You-Can-Handle Fun at Incredible Pizza

Posted by Holly Whitfield | August 30th 2010 1123 1

The name isn’t hyperbole. Incredible Pizza, is, in word, incredible. It’s more than a pizza buffet, more than an arcade, and more than a playground. What it is is completely intense.

Start with the buffet. It’s a huge counter of  all-you-can-eat pizza, pasta, salad, baked potatoes, tacos and desserts that winds its way through the lobby. (Fun fact – every day, Incredible Pizza makes between 1000 and 1600 pizzas.)
Surprisingly, the food is pretty tasty. All of it is made fresh, from scratch every day. Make a point to try the chicken noodle soup – it’s really good.

The food isn’t really the point, though – the arcade is the main event at Incredible Pizza. All of the usual arcade games are present, and there’s a special area just for smaller kids. They’ve also got bowling lanes, bumper cars, a mini-golf course and indoor go-karts. Seriously – indoor go-karts.

But the most insane part of Incredible Pizza is the dance parties. Every hour, a guy in a costume named Mr. Incredible leads a series of dances in the building’s lobby. He does the YMCA and the Macarena. He encourages kids through moves like “the lawnmower” and “rowing the boat” to “Apache” and the “Electric Slide”. He yells. He break dances. He jumps up and down so much that his loafers seem like they’re going to come off.

Everyone loves it. When I was there on Saturday, about 20 people (kids and adults) were dancing with a handful of costumed employees.

Incredible Pizza is at its busiest on the weekends. There are face painters, balloon animals, candy apples and all sorts of silly games and contests. If you want to avoid the crowds, I recommend checking it out early on weekend mornings, or during the week (especially if school is in session).

Currently, there’s only one location in Memphis, but a second store is opening in Hickory Hill within the next few weeks.

I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.

    I thought the Orphanage was so sad and heartbreaking. I know it was meant to be a horror film, but it was pretty sad all the way through.Report this comment as spam or abuse
