Dan-The Pizza House has been an institution in Saratoga Springs...the 'Saratoga' before places like Dine and Max London's took over the scene. For well over 20 years they have been catering to the locals. In my opinion, they will be missed...I think you hit the nail on the head...not the greatest food, but easy and relatively cheap.

BTW Mama Mia's is standing-room only on most weekend nights...do you think maybe that had something to do with the demise of Pizza House??

Also, that building used to be a Dairy Queen.

Good post, as usual...

Dan

Well thanks Matt for that great historical insight - I agree on Mama Mia's and there are so many factors affecting these restaurants. When times were good all of these restaurants could make a profit but now that times aren't good - it's Darwin's theory taking hold.
