What do you do when life hands you lemons? One Iconic joint on Main Street gives their pizza a little squeeze. Hand-tossing pizzas since 1962, Red Banjo Pizza is the longest-running family-owned business in Park City. With a track record like that, the pizza has to be good. Red Banjo specializes in hand-tossed, old-fashioned and fresh-baked pizzas. What may not seem so classic are the quartered lemon slices served with the pizzas – a trademark by which Red Banjo swears. Squeeze a few drops of lemon on any of the Red Banjo pizzas and the acid lends a light bitterness to bring out the flavors.
Family friendly and affordable, Red Banjo has something for everyone in the family, from subs and designer pizzas to make your own creation. The designer pizzas boast names such as “The Mayflower”, “Silver King” “Ontario” and “Daily Judge”, all reminiscent of famous silver mines in Park City.
For those who are looking for the fresher size of pizza, Red Banjo has a large selection of salads and traditional appetizers such as hot wings, pizza bread and onion rings. Traditional spaghetti and ravioli are also on the menu with a side of garlic bread for those needing to carb load. Try one of their famous subs: Italian Sausage to Grilled Chicken breast, they have you covered, with a side of fries!
But let’s get back to pizza: The local favorite, Red Banjo Special, is loaded with Canadian bacon, pepperoni, sausage, onions, fresh mushrooms, black olives, and green peppers. Dare to squeeze on that lemon and add some zest to your pizza experience!
Red Banjo Pizza has been located at 322 Main Street since 1962 and is open daily for lunch and dinner. Delivery service is available. Give them a call at 435-649-9901.
