120. Shorty’s Pizza, Powell, Delaware

Shorty’s Pizza debuted in Delaware, Ohio, as a place to watch the ponies and get some pizza. Then came the ownership change.

The horse race simulcast was still there but only on one TV and the quality of the food went through the roof. Shorty’s Pizza took off like that long-shot in the third race. The small dining room was full for lunch and dinners and you’d be lucky to get a spot on a Saturday night.

Our favorites were the Italian sub and the best wings in town — still among the best but Restoration Brew Worx has them on the best — and a great lasagna.

Then the Powell Pub location on Sawmill Road – not Parkway – came open in Powell, Ohio. And the expansion was on.
