Arris Pizza is a hometown favorite in Jeff City. The joint opened in 1961, and back then, a small pepperoni pie set you back $1.25. Today, Arris Pizza has locations across the Midwest, but the Jeff City shop is still the original. True to founder Arris Pardalos’ Greek roots, the pizzas here are thin crust and loaded with toppings. You can choose one of the specialty pies or build your own. Simply pick a sauce—choose between alfredo, basil pesto, barbecue, buffalo, hummus or olive oil, and then add your meat, cheese and toppings. You can also fill up on wings, salads, pastas, baked subs, gyros or fried pickles. It all depends on what you’re craving.
