If You Love Pizza, You’ll Want To Visit This Tiny Town In Iowa
Iowans hear it all the time: you can’t get good pizza in the Hawkeye State. Visitors come around saying our pies are nothing like their Brooklyn pizza or Chicago deep dish, and while they’re sort of right, they’re also very wrong. While truly amazing pizza slices are few and far between, if you know where to look, you’ll have the best slice of your life in a small Iowa town.
Marshalltown, Iowa is a small city that's home to just about 25,000 residents.
Outside of town, you'll hear the name most often when you're hearing about the city's famous Maid-Rite sandwiches.
In town, though, locals have been flocking to the same pizza parlor for over 60 years - Zeno's.
Zeno's is always packed, because everyone knows this is where you'll find the best pizza in Iowa. Don't worry, you can play vintage arcade games while you wait for a table.
The restaurant hasn't changed much in 60+ years, and you'll still find Iowa memorabilia and history lining the walls.
The crispy, thin-crust pizza is what brings Iowans here from all over the Hawkeye State.
Their menu features all of the classic combinations, as well as a bunch of creative menu additions like taco pizza, a Bavarian variety, and a BLT pie.
No matter what you order here, you'll love the freshness of the ingredients and the tangy, flavorful sauce on each slice.
There'a reason that Zeno's has been a Marshalltown establishment since 1952 - their mouthwatering pizza has made them a legend.
