SHINNSTON -

There are two things that go together, pizza and watching a good game, and you'll find that type of atmosphere at Game Day in Shinnston."

"We took over A's Pizza in Shinnston. It had been around for the last 25 to 30 years, and we wanted it to keep going, but we wanted to have our own identity. So we came up with the name Game Day, and our slogan is food, family, and friends.," said Robin Righter, owner.

Righter said the business has been at its current location on 119 S Pike Street for about two years, and she describes it as a great place to be. 

"Everybody comes down after football games. The place is packed, the whole community supports us. The main things we sell are pizzas and hoagies," Righter said.

Righter said people love hoagies there and the pizza shells are personally made by the staff, which she said not everybody does that.

"We've got a certain type of pepperoni that's made to go with the sauce, so we have our own unique taste," Righter said. "We have pastas, lasagna, the meatballs are fantastic. We're getting ready to do a roast beef special, probably on Wednesday nights we're getting ready to roll that out."

Righter feels being there for the community is important. 

Game Day is open Wednesday-Saturdays 3-9 p.m. and Sundays 3-8 p.m. Call 304-592-3994 for more information.

"Everybody on my staff is from Shinnston. So we all went to Lincoln High School, we're all involved in the community. We bought the restaurant because we wanted to live on, we all grew up eating A's Pizza, loved it and wanted generations to experience that," Righter said.

"Everybody's been very happy that we kept the same recipes, the same food A's Pizza had. Everybody loved it and they didn't want us to make a lot of changes," Righter said.
