Description

Dallas Observer's Description

This storied, family-owned (now into its fourth generation) restaurant and its sibling establishments have been dishing out some of Dallas' favorite thin-crust pizza and Italian-American cuisine since 1946. Eating here is like dining with history. (The strip mall in which the original restaurant sits seems like a relic itself in stark contrast to the stylish Mockingbird Station development within spitting distance.) The night before Jack Ruby, a Campisi's regular, killed Lee Harvey Oswald, he dined at the darkly lit Campisi's on Mockingbird Lane. Legendary American League umpire Steve Palermo was shot while attempting to stop a mugging outside the same location. If local lore isn't your thing, the snappy pizza or one of the house specialties, such as the "Original" shrimp scampi, or the customizable pasta options, might be. The Campisis also offers catering. One of the packages offered is named after Jack Ruby.

    Jack Ruby ate here the night before he decided to shoot Lee Harvey Oswald. I bring out of town friends here when I give them a JFK tour.
