Pizza Sphinx

We stopped by Tasty Pizza North in June looking for the Pizza Sphinx and were not able to locate him. It may be that during the road construction 2-3 years back, he was removed. There is a wooden pizza sign where people can stand and put their heads in it for a photo op.

The Sphinx is small, with its back to the parking lot, so it can be easy to miss.


Pizza Sphinx

In an area dominated by Paul Bunyan and friends, a curious Sphinx statue stands in front of a pizza restaurant just south of town.
