Visalia sees third Mountain Mike’s Pizza

Locals can take a hike to the newest Mountain Mike’s pizzeria where Ryan’s Place was located on Mooney Boulevard

VISALIA – Trips to Mountain Mike’s Pizza just got a whole lot easier with the recent opening of a third pizzeria in Visalia, taking over where the former Ryan’s Place Restaurant used to be. 

This third installment of Mountain Mike’s Pizza has officially opened for business as of July 13. Known for their 20-inch “mountain-sized” pizzas, the pizzeria is ready to serve up some “Pizza the Way it Oughta Be!”

“Our new Visalia restaurant is on a bustling street, and we are excited to welcome locals familiar with Mountain Mike’s and new guests who we know will embrace the quality and family-friendly atmosphere Mountain Mike’s is known for throughout California, and beyond,” co-owner Harry Singh said via a press release.

Mountain Mike’s Pizza is a California-based, family-style pizza that’s been in operation for over 40 years. The location is owned and run by multi-unit owners Singh and Inderjeet Kaur Dhillon, Visalia locals and husband and wife duo. They also own and operate two other Mountain Mike locations, which are the Visalia restaurant on west Walnut Avenue and the Tulare restaurant on east Propriety Avenue.

Singh said, in a press release, after the success of the restaurant’s location on Walnut Ave, he and his wife are proud to open a second location on Mooney Boulevard. He said after a six year search for a second location, they were able to land the spot on one of Visalia’s busiest streets last year. The achievement was highlighted by his observations of passion coming from the local community regarding the brand.

This pizzeria is located at 3103 S. Mooney Blvd. in the Towne and Country III Shopping Center and is open daily from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. It is the first restaurant to take residence at the location since the former restaurant, Ryan’s Place Restaurant, closed in 2020 due to the financial strain of the COVID-19 pandemic shutdown.

According to a press release, the newest installment of Mountain Mike’s Pizza features the brand’s stamp of a welcoming, family-friendly atmosphere with 4,100 square feet of space for residents to stretch out while enjoying their pizza. Sports fans can take advantage of the pizzeria’s 10 large-screen televisions with every approaching game day and party planners can utilize the restaurant’s private party room that accommodates up to 55 guests at a time. The newly installed location also has an all-you-can-eat pizza lunch buffet and an arcade area for kids of all ages, making it a place with a variety of activities for customers to enjoy.

Mountain Mike’s crafts delicious hand-made pizzas with fresh ingredients. From its well known crispy, curly pepperoni, 100% whole milk mozzarella cheese and fan-favorite specialty pizzas, the restaurant has something for everyone. Whether it be dine-in, carryout or delivery, customers can always expect Mountain Mike’s to supply a quality pizza focused on freshness, flavor and value. 

Aside from the restaurant’s own delivery service, orders for the pizzeria can also be placed through any of the brand’s third-party delivery partners like DoorDash, GrubHub and UberEats.

Mountain Mike’s Pizza has been a leading California-based, family-style pizza chain since 1978, when it was first established in Palo Alto, California, according to the restaurant’s website. With 44 years of service, Mountain Mike’s has more than 250 locations across California, Oregon, Nevada, Utah, Arizona and Idaho.
