Our History

Our History

Mark Twain’s Pizza opened July 30th 1985 on one side of its present location at 2035 Metairie Road in a part of Old Metairie that was once known as “Skinny City.” On one side was Cuban Liquor and the other side was Melbas Ice Cream, both long gone. When Melbas closed in 1993, Mark Twain’s rented and renovated that side and the pizza parlor has remained the same since in it’s present 1800 square foot space.

Mark Twain’s is proud of its loyal dining base, especially in the surrounding Old Metairie neighborhood, but also boasts diners from all over the area that come to eat pizza from far away areas like Slidell, Waggamann, Baton Rouge, and Mandeville, just to name a few.

We do not ship food but have had our customers take Muffalettas to such cities as San Francisco, Dallas, New York (what a compliment), Upstate New York, Jacksonville, and many more. Mark Twains reopened after Katrina on September 25th, 2005 and is proud of its consistency and quality in the face of adversity. July 30th was our 21st anniversary.
