It can sometimes be difficult to find Hickory restaurants the entire family will love. Here at Tony’s Pizza, we love serving families in the Charlotte area. We got our start in Brooklyn making delicious New York style pies before our entire family moved south to bring our traditional Italian recipes to North Carolina. Today, we take pride in our six local restaurants, which use the same recipes that our family has passed down through the generations. If you’re on a quest to find the perfect Hickory pizza for your picky family, give Tony’s a try!

Why Kids Love Tony’s Pizza

When you come to Tony’s, you don’t have to worry about your kids refusing to eat. Take one step inside our restaurant and even the fussiest of eaters will be drooling from the aroma of our pizzas baking! We use fresh ingredients and time-tested cooking techniques to make sure that every order tastes as good as it smells.

Listen, we get it – some kids change their preferred foods more often than the weather. Here, you don’t have to worry about a meltdown. Not only do we make authentic New York style pizza in Hickory, but we also have a variety of dishes on our kids’ menu, including:

  • Meatball sub with fries
  • Ham and cheese sub with fries
  • Cheese sticks
  • Spaghetti or ziti pasta with marinara or butter sauce (meatballs optional)
  • Ravioli with marinara or butter sauce
  • Grilled or crispy chicken tenders with fries

Of course, our kids’ menu also includes cheese or pepperoni pizza by the slice. All kids’ meals include a drink served in a reusable plastic cup with a straw.

Our restaurants make a great place for kids to practice dining manners and ordering off a menu, but you don’t have to feel anxious about dealing with a temper tantrum, spilled drink, or other issues. We have kids too, so trust us when we say we understand and love providing a family-friendly place to eat! Our friendly wait staff is happy to support parents whose kids are learning to navigate the world.

Adults Love Tony’s Pizza Too!

Although we love kids, we aren’t just a children’s restaurant. Adults of all ages love us too thanks to our wide range of menu options. Of course, locals know us for our authentic New York style pizza. However, don’t sleep on our Italian entrees. In addition to some of the best pizza around (as well as calzones, and stromboli), we also serve the following pasta dishes:

Our Italian entrees each come with a side salad and garlic knots. Still hungry? We also have an Italian dessert menu that includes tiramisu, cannoli, New York style cheesecake, and limoncello mascarpone cake topped with white chocolate curls.

We’re the perfect option for date night as well. Our casual atmosphere makes first dates less awkward, and our prices won’t break the bank. Even if your date doesn’t go as planned, at least you will have good food with plenty of leftovers to enjoy for lunch the next day!

What Makes Our Pizza Better

There’s no shortage of pizza options in the area, and you might be tempted to pull into an old standby like Pizza Hut or Papa John’s. However, one bite of a Tony’s pizza and you’ll taste the difference. We use sauce and dough recipes that have been refined over generations by our dedicated family members. For cheese and other toppings, we use only the best ingredients. Even bad pizza is still pizza… but why settle for a big chain pizza when you could have something that tastes so much better?

When you come to Tony’s, you can also order other foods that the big chains don’t provide. Some may have a few appetizer options like reheated breadsticks or lackluster wings, but you have a huge selection to go with your pizza at our Charlotte pizza restaurants, including the following:

  • Italian sausage in marinara
  • Famous garlic knots
  • Boneless or bone-in wings with your choice of mild, buffalo, honey BBQ, teriyaki, or sweet chili sauce
  • Toasted garlic bread with a side of marinara
  • Beer-battered onion rings with honey mustard or ranch
  • Stuffed toasted ravioli with ranch or marinara
  • Italian seasoned breaded mozzarella sticks with a side of marinara
  • Cheddar cheese-stuffed jalapeno poppers with ranch
  • Pork/beef blended Italian meatballs in marinara
  • Garlic cheesy bread with marinara
  • Beer-battered whole mushrooms with ranch
  • Seasoned or unseasoned French fries
  • Homemade hot chips

We also have entrée-sized salads in case someone in your family is looking for a fresh vegetable option, as well as a variety of hot and cold subs. You can’t get those items at most big chain pizza restaurants nearby in Charlotte.
