One of the mainstay businesses in Shawnee, Kansas is Old Shawnee Pizza. Established in 1969, Joe Walker saw the need for this type of restaurant, and brought it here. Years later, seeing the need for more room, he moved to the current location at 60th & Nieman Road. They have since expanded to add a second location in Lenexa, Kansas.
Their menu is not limited to pizza alone, but also offers a variety of appetizers, salads, pastas, and sandwiches. Those in the know look forward to starting their meal with a club salad oozing with the house dressing. Add some Cheese Crust or Bread sticks, and you have a meal already, but why stop there.
For the main course have them dish you up a serving of one of their delicious pasta dishes, like Chicken Alfredo or Cani-cotti, which is the best of both worlds, as you get a manicotti, and a canelloni. If a handheld is more your style, try the Sicilian sandwich. It's stuffed full of capicola, salami, pepperoni, and provolone, and topped with their garlic salad dressing.
Of course you probably came for the pizza, and why wouldn't you. Serving up almost 30 different specialty pies, it can be difficult to decide which one to try. Of course you can always just build your own. Whatever you choose you are sure to leave with a full belly and a new go-to pizza joint.
