Jailhouse pizza.

Jailhouse Pizza

This is a restaurant inside an old jail building. The main restaurant part has interesting old jail type stuff. Upstairs there are old cells that my kids enjoyed being placed inside. There are also old cells on the main floor that double as booths, so your party can be locked inside to play a pretend game of "last meal."

The former Meade County Jail opened in 1906. Its most famous prisoner was country music star Hank Williams.
