The chef stands on a pedestal in front of the building; the actual entrance of the restaurant is in back. There's two hour parking in front and a lot behind the building.

This happy-looking giant pizza chef is standing in front of Home Pizza in St. Clairsville. There is also a historically accurate downtown mural on the building's side wall.
