Pizza lovers, rejoice! As of Thursday, April 1, the Strike Zone pizza buffet and salad bar at Redstone Lanes is open for business again.

Bob Ujvari, business manager at Redstone Lanes, said the buffet will reopen for lunch on Thursdays and Fridays from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. For $8.50, patrons can enjoy all-you-can-eat pizza, salads and soft drinks during lunch service.

Ujvari said the Strike Zone will adhere to installation COVID-19 procedures, which means customers will be required to wear a mask while inside Redstone Lanes unless eating or drinking. Additionally, individuals must sanitize their hands before using the utensils in the buffet line and will be asked to maintain proper social distancing.

For Ujvari, the reopening cannot come soon enough.

“We are looking forward to seeing all our regulars we’ve missed,” he said.

Ujvari hopes that the buffet will be open for more hours in the near future, but must first ensure that staffing is sufficient to cater to the current demand. “We want to make sure we can handle what we’ve got coming in the door,” he said.

The buffet has been closed since the COVID-19 pandemic shut similar businesses down in March 2020. It is located in Redstone Lanes Bowling Center in building 3424. For more information, call the Strike Zone at 876-6634. Other dining options at Redstone Lanes have been open at 50% capacity since March 1.
