Organ Stop Pizza Mesa AZ

The Beginning of February about 16 of us went to Organ Stop Pizza   If you have never been their it is an experience.  Never go on a weekend, you will wait in line to order pizza, wait in another line to order your beverage and then wait in line some more to get a table.  We had to split our group up to get seated.  No one seats you, just grab an empty stop when one opens up. 

If you want to have a nice conversation over dinner, this is not the place to go.  If you are looking for quality pizza, this is not the place to go.  If you are looking for a place with some very unique entertainment to accompany some not so great pizza than this is the place to go.  I love the entertainment.

The restaurant is built around the largest Wurlitzer theater pipe organ in the world (6000 pipes).  The organ controls violins, drums, horns, xylophones, and many other special effects hanging on the walls of the restaurant.  The music is a lot of fun.  The organist plays movie scores, TV theme songs, Broadway hits, patriotic songs and even takes requests.

We sat in the balcony above the organ, and had a very nice view.  Lee Ann and Kens friend Karen from Minnesota came to visit for a week.  Got a picture of her taking a picture of me.
