In the Beginning
Dino’s Pizza opened it’s doors to the community of Whiting and Robertsdale in 1961. Formerly Baker Boys Pizza, Dino’s was originally located on 1932 Calumet Avenue. It is difficult to believe it was only carry out and delivery back then. Dino’s had a very limited menu too, strictly pizza. Our toppings included sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms, onions, green peppers, and anchovies.
Over the years
Dino’s Pizza later added sandwiches and items such as homemade chili and salads to the menu. Side items are a big hit too, like the garlic bread, cheese bread, and tomato bread. Dino’s never tried to compete with the “big” franchise market coming up with all kinds of gimmicks to sell pizza. “Just stress the service and quality and customers will come back.”
Over the past 60 years Dino’s Pizza has had five different owners. The previous owner picked the current home at 1601 121st Street. They added the lunch buffet and a few specialty pizzas. At the current location, we have dining available for 30 people. We have always been a family oriented business. We believe in serving the freshest product with the fastest, friendliest service available. We still make our dough and sauce, grind our own cheese and pork sausage, as well as chop our own vegetables daily.
Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, we have closed our dining room and pickup area. We offer curbside pickup and delivery services at this time.
