Area restaurant to celebrate 60th anniversary

Broadway Pizza is celebrating its 60th anniversary. The Minneapolis Broadway Bar and Pizza, 2025 W. River Road, is hosting a week-long 60th celebration Monday, Sept. 16 through Sunday, Sept. 22.

In 1961, Eddie Peck bought Spallacci’s operation, along with his recipe. Continuing the pizza tradition, along with his wife Dorothy and mother Mamie in his north Minneapolis neighborhood restaurant and bar, Peck made sausage from scratch, while Mamie simmered special sauces and kneaded fresh dough for delicious homemade pizza. Eddie’s pizzas quickly became the neighborhood favorite with standing room only at the old Broadway Pizza.

There are 15 area locations, include Champlin, Maple Grove and Rogers.
