“If in town, drive by.”
Reviewed September 1, 2013 via mobile

It didn't have an actual address so we luckily found it. If you are in town and bored, it will entertain you for 3 mins. I mean we all have eaten Pizza Hut, so to see how it came to be was a little interesting.

“A part of local entreprenureship history.”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

I grew up near the original College Hill location. Kellogg and Bluff intersection, Dog and Shake, Pizza Hut and a Vickers station across the Road.
I believe it was in the early 70's when the Scotch and Sirloin moved to the property? The Old Pizza Hut housed several businesses, a liquor store was one.
I had heard they moved the building to the old Cowtown area, only to find out recently it was at WSU.

“The Original Pizza Hut”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

The original Pizza Hut building has been moved from its original location at Kellogg and Bluff to the campus of Wichita State University. Dan and Frank Carney open this tiny restaurant with a loan from their mother. Pizza Hut became an internationally known restaurant with thousands of locations.
