An Incredibly Surprising Pizza Place

When my children were small, they loved to spend time at the local pizza entertainment center. It was an overpriced, cramped play space with unappetizing food and the promise of a weeklong illness due to unsanitary equipment. I truly dreaded the arrival of those party invitations and breathed a silent sigh of relief when they outgrew the center.
Imagine my surprise, while recently traveling in Tennessee, we stumbled upon Americas Incredible Pizza Company and my now much older children wanted to stop. Visions of that filthy rodent from our local center danced through my mind as I tried to argue against it. Overruled completely, we entered the Incredible Pizza Company and I forgot all my reservations!

Americas Incredible Pizza Company is just that- INCREDIBLE! Sparkling clean tiles of retro black and white greet you as you enter a vast space made for food, fun and family. A seemingly endless buffet of mouthwatering favorites, including pizza, pasta, homemade soups and sauces, hot dogs, tacos (80+ options!) can be found, along with fresh, crisp salads and scrumptious desserts. The food is spectacular and prepared with care- more than 100 different varieties of pizza are made daily! So many divine choices

The food is only part of what makes this place amazing, though. Americas Incredible Pizza Company brings the fun as well! Our quick stop turned into an afternoon of gaming, bowling, bumper cars, mini-golf and rides. Bright lights and dazzling displays promising thrills, chills and spills- its truly a dining destination not to be missed.


Americas Incredible Pizza Company is a wholesome environment tailor-made for student groups, homeschool groups, sports teams, faith-based travelers, dance and drama clubs, scout groups and more. Group events with ten or more people qualify for discounts (if booked at least 24 hours in advance). Dedicated space is available along with the buffet and a large selection of games and attractions. The facility is alcohol-free, making it perfect for kiddos.

Americas Incredible Pizza Company lives up to its name on every level. Americas Incredible Pizza Company has locations in great group destinations- plan your group’s visit today!

Hard Rock Caf Rocks Your Student Group

Teenagers love two things music and eating. I happen to have a teenager (of the male variety) and I can verify that music and eating top his daily to do list. I went from weekly grocery shopping to what feels like hourly grocery shopping in the span of two short years! Conversely, I have no idea what is on his playlist (and prefer to keep it that way). I do know, however, that if teenagers are well-fed and given a chance to kick back with some great music, they are ultimately happy campers.

Enter Hard Rock Caf, the quintessential dining destination for your student group. Hard Rock Caf is a master at knowing what kids like, from colossal, mouthwatering burgers to the sights and sounds of rock and roll! Hard Rock Caf has tons of locations in great student destinations, each with a unique flavor and style. They cater to groups of 15 or more and can offer a dedicated menu- including those legendary burgers, golden, breaded chicken tenders, gooey mac and cheese, smoky pulled pork or a classic Caesar salad. The portions are monstrous (perfect for teens) and each meal is topped off with a warm and fully-loaded chocolate chip cookie. If you prefer alternative choices, theyll work with you to design a menu that will perfectly satisfy the needs of your group.

While your group is in the house, they can browse the huge and varied collection of authentic rock and roll memorabilia. Theres much to see to keep the kids occupied, and the music is always pumping, keeping the energy of the trip high. Dont forget to make a quick stop at the Hard Rock Shop for those all- important t-shirts!
Hard Rock Caf is an outstanding dining choice for your student group. The staff is courteous, servers friendly and efficient, and the atmosphere made for fun! Hard Rock Cafe is an epic dining experience the students wont soon forget!
