Eugene's pizza was started by a man named Eugene E. Barger in 1962 (Eugene passed away on January 17, 1999) In October of 1967, our dad and mom, Arlie and Mary Sue Knodel, purchased Eugene's pizza from Mr. Barger after only 2 days of consideration. When Arlie was ready for his first day in the new business, he had $40.00 to his name to fill the cash register
I am not a pizza expert, having grown up in the Midwest, but this is as good as Midwest-style pizza gets. Hand-tossed thin crust, great toppings combinations, overall quite tasty. They also have fried chicken, etc. but the pizza is so good I get it every time I am there. The decor is pretty bare bones, the dining area is just a big room with lots of small tables. The place is pretty much always busy, and seems to be a local favorite. They do NOT take credit cards. The staff is pretty friendly (unless you try to pay with a credit card), and it is fun to watch them hand toss the dough while you eat. I will be back! My favorite pizzas are the supreme and the German with kraut (I forget what these are named on the menu).
Awesome pizza--the thin crust, savory sauce, and melty cheese are oh so good! Also, basically the best barbequed ribs in the world. They fall off the bone, you're able to eat everything but the bone, and the sweet sauce is super! Their ranch salad dressing is good with the jo-jos, and salad, and pizza crust, and whatever.
Truly great pizza, thinner crust, my favorite is Eugenes Special, delicious! Watching the chef toss the pizza dough 20 feet in the air to get it just right, priceless. Look for the giant G 50 feet in the air just off Hwy 2.
