Does anyone have a photo of the Hialeah Pizza Palace?  I did a goggle search it showed the on SW 8 St, Miami, FL.  Mentioned the Hialeah location, but I couldn't find a photo.  For the longest time I have been trying to remember the name of the pizza place my family would get take out pizza.  I do remember it was south of the race track on East 4th Ave.   I also am sad by what is happening to Hialeah Race Track.  It's my opinion, the Miami areas does not have a strong preservation group.

'Paul, Patsy's Pizza doesn't ring a bell.  I guess it's possible I didn't know the name.  I was probably in my early teens or younger.  My mom would order a pizza to pick up.  She would drive and I would go in to pick it up. I remember it was a white building the name I believe was in red on the corner.  My memory thinks they made great pizza!  We never dined in the restuarant.  If it is the same place I wish I had.  Love garlic sticks.  Thank you for sharing.

Patsy's Pizza served great Italian food but it was located on East 29th St. The Pizza Palace, a favorite high school hang-out, was located on West 49th Street. Larry King on the HHS '63 site probably can find a picture of the Palace.

Let me interject another great pizza eatery, Jimmy Setinbrino SP? his family owned a great Itallian restaurant on Palm Ave near Hialeah horse track. Jimmy used to deliver Italian bread usually still warm to my and many other houses, He was a real entrepreneur, and a friend.

Hi all - in regards to the Pizza place it might have been Momma Mia Pizza which was on I think 41st Street  (or around that area) east of 4th Avenue. It was a little place but she had the best pizza.Went there a lot during Senior year 1964 as my friend lived on 41st Street.

For the greasest  pizza you couldn't beat May & Dave's on Palm & 12 st., plus cold draft Schlitz's dark beer

James, Mae & Dave's on Palm Ave. was the greatest, especially after playing sports. However, I understand that an apartment now resides there....Progress?  PK

Paul, thanks for correcting my spelling from May to Mae lol. I remember my Mom & Dad sitting on the stools out front on the sidewalk.

What about Patsy's Pizza?  I thought it was the Mecca for post-football game eateries!

Bruce Nierenberg

I agree. The pizza was great but it was by far the most popular place to go post football. sometimes impossible to get a tabke if you got there late. I beleive a classmate of ours family owned the place.

On trip to Australia that week

Melvin "Jack" Krouskroup

OH-OH, Bike Week conflict, not being a biker I forgot about the mass of riders that visit our Daytona-Ormond area early March. Nancy Blizzard is working on a venue we gathered at a few years back "Aunt Catfish" in Port Orange she will post the details here, the date will be the same (I guess the bikers don't go that far south) I hope this works for everyone, thank you, Jack

James Ward

Aunt Catfishs has an upstairs room that we used to get during bike week. It's a busy place at night, but lunch or brunch might be easier to get.

James Ward

The bikers love Aunt Catfishes , like I said it's a busy place.
