Danny's Pizza & Hoagies Bethel Park location at 5159 Library Road is celebrating its 50th anniversary.
Opened in 1960, Danny’s knows how to keep them coming back. Danny Rowstick started from scratch in a vacant building at 5159 Library Road, originally serving hamburgers, hot dogs, and sandwiches.
But over time, he developed his own pizza and hoagie recipes. The formula was to be thorough and detailed, offering good service and good food. Danny's buys their produce and meat from local farms in season and everything is made fresh every day. The recipes have remained the same throughout the years.
And people do keep coming back. People who were customers 30 or 40 years ago come back when they are in the area. They appreciate the consistency of their products and the fact that the restaurant has remained largely the same with an occasional addition over time. Danny’s also ships hoagies to different states.
In the mid 1970's, they opened a second location at 4851 Clairton Boulevard, Route 51, in Brentwood. But all of it has been a family operation. There have always been family members involved, and they believe the owners should be on the premises. Danny’s son Danny now runs the business and believes it becomes a part of you when you are there on a consistent basis.
You can reach the Bethel Park location at 412-833-7788 and the Brentwood location at 412-881-9490.
