|A view of Minsky's Pizza Joynt in south Kansas City, courtesy Google Street View.|
This menu hung on the inside of our kitchen cabinet probably from the day my parents came across Minsky's. My dad would often call our order in and we would take a family drive down to pick it up and bring it home. Other times we would eat-in and meet family friends there for food. When I was old enough to drive I would take my friends there (many of which weren't allowed to "cross the river.") We had celebratory dinners at Minsky's and had it at nearly every slumber party on record.
Nowadays, Minsky's touts itself as "gourmet" pizza, but back then it was just a pizza joynt. Every single time I head home I visit Minsky's. Such good memories are even better when the food rocks. Minsky's is a chain now with 14 locations. If you are ever in Kansas City I highly recommend it!
