While out on a road trip to see small towns in Oklahoma, I went through Blair just north of Altus. Cute town, lots of old buildings still being used, including a few restaurants. It was lunch time so I was early for Backdoor Steakhouse (it opened at 5p, I would like to try it though), so I tried the small Luigi’s Pizzeria right next door.
Located on their Main Street, just to the east of US Highway 283, if you aren’t looking for it you’ll miss it. Painted up in blue, you go in through the front door and are greeted with a beautiful tin ceiling. There are vintage signs around the small dining room with a cool old Coke machine in the corner. We were told to sit anywhere, so we sat next to that Coke machine. We were quickly brought some toasted garlic bread with a vinegar and olive oil dip. It was so good, crisp on the outside and buttery soft in the middle. We ordered a medium pizza with a garlic crust, alfredo, pepperoni, black olives, and mushrooms. We waited about 15 minutes for the pizza to be done, and it came out piping hot. Everything was great and the garlic crust gave it a bit of extra flavor.
Luigi’s has been serving pizza and other Italian dishes to southwestern Oklahoma for over 20 years, they have a second location on the east side of Altus. I loved the atmosphere of the Blair location, quiet with an old time charm. I’ll be happy to drive to Blair to get a pizza with them again, 5 strips of bacon.
Address: 118 E Main St., Blair; 20650 US-62, Altus.
