Gatti Town Pizza


There are many new strip shopping centers opening up in the Madison/Ridgeland area. This one had been under construction for awhile, so I was surprised to see the parking lot bursting with cars this weekend (this photo does not show the full extent).

Apparently Gatti Town is a big draw for locals. I had no idea what type of restaurant it actually was. But after some investigation, it appears to be what I would call a Show-Biz-esque type of place (known to later generations as Chuckee Cheese). Although I did not venture far enough to see if they had those singing robotic animals which I fondly recall from many a childhood birthday party.

Yeah... someone discribed it to me as an ADULT Chuckee Cheese The first thing that came to mind was a big cartoon esque rat pole dancing...

But is the food good?

As it is an all-you-can-eat pizza buffet, I highly doubt it. And I probably will not be investigating further.

Thanks. I had no idea what Chukee Cheese was. Adult or otherwise.

When I was a very small boy in Hattiesburg, the only place you could get pizza was Mr. Gatti's. I remembered it being good, and sort or romanticized it. I was excited about going, but highly disappointed to find that I had walked into a Dave and Buster's

Do they have Dave and Buster's around here? I think that's also known to some as ESPN Zone.
