There is nothing like a Monty's pizza

I thought my favorite pizza place from college, Monty's Pizza, had closed. According to the Herald-Dispatch Monty's is alive and well and has expanded to several locations. Monty's servers New York-style pizza unlike any other I've ever had in West Virginia. Take my advice and order a large bag of another West Virginia favorite, Mister Bee's Potato Chips to go along with your large Monty's pizza.

A home-sick Billy Crystal, who came to Marshall on a baseball scholarship but left after a year because the program was suspended, is said to have spent most of his free time at Monty's. He said their pizza reminded him of home.

Give me Husson's any day.

For you Charelston folk, though, there is a Monty's in Teays Valley now.

I have had a pizza from Monty's since the 80s. Maybe it's nostalgia more than anything else.
