Aldos Pizza

Postby gmz23 » Mon Jun 27, 2011 11:27 pm

How about the great pizza at Aldos Pizza in Clovis Barnyard Shopping Center. Possibly my favorite pizza of all time they had some giant pizzas. There was also a place named Rico's Pizza I believe on Shaw somewhere ? Also very good pizza early 80's

I remember an Aldo's near Fig Garden Village, just to the west on Shaw, I think.

There were indeed two Aldo's, one on Shaw just west of Palm on the north side of the street. I think the Limelight is now in that location. Then a second Also's opened up in the Barnyard Shopping Center on Clovis Ave.

If I'm not mistaken, Popolo's Pizza, still extant on the southwest corner of Blackstone and Herndon, is related somehow to the two Aldo's restaurants and makes the same style of pizza today.

Yes, the old Aldo's on shaw was next door to the Elbow Room before it moved onto Fig Garden. The Honey Baked hams is now in that location. Best pizza in town!
