Game Trucks & Pizza Parlors…a Great Combo! | Salinas Monterey Hollister Game Truck Blog

EZPZ Video Game Party & Pizza

We absolutely love our Central Coast community, but when many of the homes in this area were built, they didn’t exactly have our Mobile Game Theater in mind! Being a region steeped in both the military and agricultural sectors of business, homes in this area were generally built smaller as the residents didn’t need much room.

This often presents a problem for EZPZ’s potential customers: smaller homes mean little or no room to accommodate our Mobile Game Theater, which requires at least 55 feet for both the truck and trailer to maneuver and park. 

So what can our curb space-challenged customers do?

We’ve had several birthday parties at local pizza parlors! It makes for a great “combo” (see what we did there?). Food and entertainment are all there; all the parents have to deal with is cake and decorations!

Not every pizza place is ideal for our game truck, though. A lot of shopping centers don’t have much room for us to maneuver our game truck and therefore can’t host our video game parties. But we’re always willing to check out any suggestions you may have!

For your convenience, here is a list of pizza places we’ve either been to or have spoken with the management about our Mobile Game Theater. In no special order:

Pizza Factory – 926 South Main Street, Salinas – 831-758-3227

We have a had a couple of great parties here. Let Marcus, the manager, know that we’re coming when you reserve your pizza party.

Angelina’s Pizzeria – 22736 Portola Drive, Salinas – (831) 484-1164

Located across Highway 68 from Toro Park, Angelina’s has a little dirt lot nearby where our Mobile Game Theater can park. Note: Angelina’s is generally open after 4pm.

Mountain Mike’s Pizza – Hartnell Plaza Shopping Center, 931 W Alisal St, Salinas – (831) 424-4540

The Hartnell Plaza Shopping Center has plenty of parking, and while it’s unfortunate that the grocery store there doesn’t currently have a tenant, it makes for a convenient place for us to park our game truck. Nice folks there as well.

Round Table Pizza in Marina – 3120 Del Monte Blvd, Marina –  (831) 384-7227

We haven’t done a party here yet but have spoken to the management. They’re open to having our game truck there, but will likely ask you to either buy a 1-day insurance policy or to sign a liability waiver. Our game truck will fit nicely in their back parking lot near the door that opens to the party room.

Straw Hat Pizza – 1053 1st St, Gilroy – (408) 842-2745

Real nice folks here. Reserve your party, let them know we’re coming, and they’ll block off an area adjacent to one of their entrances for us to park.

Do you know of a place – pizza or otherwise – that is able and willing to having EZPZ’s Mobile Game Theater at their establishment? Let us know! Call us at (831) 200-EZPZ…we’d love to expand our roster of great places to host a Game Party/Pizza Party combination!
