Ten Favorite Arcades in Metro Phoenix
4. Pizza Mart
Once upon a time, mom-and-pop pizzerias across the Valley hosted arcade games aplenty for patrons to tackle after hastily wiping excess grease of their mitts while cheesy rock hits blared over a boombox. Such a scene has sadly become a product of the past, which is one of the reasons why we did this uniquely shaped throwback pizza place in Mesa.
The back room of the A-frame structure (which was built the '70s as an old Village Inn Pizzeria) contains more than a dozen vintage arcade units like Choplifter, Galaga '88, and Asteroids. The owners have also decorated the room with various bits of Pac-Man memorabilia and other video game ephemera. It may not be as flashy or frenetic as other places around town, but its definitely one of our favorites.
