Bobby's House Of Pizza, 2112 Clemson Road: late 2013   8 comments

Posted at 12:55 am in Uncategorized







There are a lot of "House Of Pizza" restaurants around, but I'm not sure if it's a chain of some sort, or just a common name choice. Usually though I see them with a (smaller) town name like "Pontiac House of Pizza", "Camden House of Pizza" etc and not an owner's name like this small storefront at the corner of Clemson and Hardscrabble Roads. This was always on my "to try" list, but as it was so far from where I normally am, I never got around to it in time.

I've blogged several places in this strip, The Crossings, including Food Lion and Blockbuster. They still have not managed to fill the anchor Food Lion space.

  1. Ahh Nooo!

    I use to frequent this place when I worked in the area. Yes even years ago, the service went downhill, but they used *real* pizza ovens. (Those big natural gas munchers with the long horizontal doors.) The Pizzas were great there.

    The other great one was the Blythewood House of Pizza at 135-E Blythewood Road next to the IGA. They too use a real pizza oven.

    Its my understanding that the one next to the Food lion somehow spawned off the one the Blythewood.

    Closer to home, I suppose one of the better Pizzas can be found at Strombolies on Bluff Road.

  2. I suspect the 'House of Pizza' might be just a common name. This past weekend driving thru St. Matthews, I noticed they have a restaurant "Calhoun House of Pizza."

  3. MrBO-- The Blythewood House of Pizza has undergone a name change and menu overhaul. It is now called Valentina's after the owner's daughter. The pizza is still pretty good (nice and greasy), and their strombolis are better than they used to be. They consolidated their menu, almost like they had seen one of those restaurant makeover shows on TV. The menu was too large before, and now they seem to focus on quality of items instead of amount of different items. Also, the prices are fairly high. A large meat lovers Stromboli is almost 14 dollars (!!), but it is enough food to fill two average people.

  4. The pizzas were good, but getting out of that shopping center isn't. There's just too much cross traffic on either road that you have to somehow navigate through. It's not uncommon to see someone wait five minutes to make a left onto Clemson, and there's no making a left onto Hard Scrabble at all. That alone is why I only went here a couple of times.

  7. Bobby's House of Pizza was one of several pizza joints Bobby and his family started. I believe Lugoff, Camden, Elgin were all opened by the same guy (but then sold each off one by one). This place had been here for years! The pizza was amazing, in fact, I live in Blythewood and refused to go to Blythewood House of Pizza. I would go here. Unforunately I now have to find somewhere else to frequent. I hope the owner reopens somewhere else close by. It's a shame this place is no longer in business. It honestly was very good.

  8. Years back Bobby sold this pizza place, and opened up Santorini Grill up on Hardscrabble. I am sure there is a post on here about it. When Santorini closed Bobby re bought this pizza place. I am sure Food Lion and Blockbuster closing had a effect, but also maybe Bobby just got tired. His kids had no interest in taking over the business so maybe retirement was calling his name.
