There’s nothing fancy, schmancy about J & J’s  Pizza Shack in Roselawn, Indiana.

This Newton County pizza parlor certainly has that small town atmosphere that I know and love.

What they also have is pizza: good, yummy, hot out of the oven pizza!

They seem to be known for their kitchen sink pizza which, as you probably have guessed, has everything on it!

If we hadn’t had the kids along we probably would have tried it (hubs and I do like a good everything pizza). Instead, we got a half cheese and a half cheese and sausage pizza. It’s on the list for next time.

Of course, we had to start with nummy cheesesticks, eaten while watching people zip by on golf carts. So funny. By the  time we polished those off and our pizza arrived, the place was hopping and pretty full! Of course, it’s not exactly a large pizza parlor to begin with, but still. It seemed to be a local favorite.

This small Indiana town pizza parlor has something fun on the menu: J&J’s Pizza Challenge!

Apparently, whomever can finish an entire deep-dish, kitchen sink pizza in one hour gets it free! If I had known about that while I was pregnant, I’m pretty sure I could have won! As it is, I think it would be fun to order just to see how big it really is!

As we were finishing up (and Kid #1 ditched us to play on the retro arcade games) the owner walked around handing out frozen mini candy bars from a very large bucket. This is a man after my own heart.

What’s more — J & J’s Pizza Shack has an ice cream counter! They even had that wonder of wonders: Blue Moon! If you haven’t had a chance to sample Blue Moon ice cream, well, now you know of another place where you can get it!
