FAIRBANKS, Alaska - A small local restaurant is getting some large recognition for their pizza. 'The Hungry Robot' has won second place for best pizza in the state. Though it only opened a couple years ago, and just recently started a full time operation, the Hungry Robot has garnered quite the following. It started out just providing pizza for small events, and now has a full kitchen in operation. Most recently, the pizzeria has been part of the Midnight Sun Festival, Chickenstock, and Soundwaves. Owner Randy Bezdeck will be travelling to Anchorage for the awards ceremony happening tomorrow night. He also told us about how it feels to win this honor, and is grateful to everyone who made it possible.
"Super awesome, really weird, we have only been open full time for about a year, almost exactly a year so it was unexpected. It was very shocking. I would like to thank my employees because they kick butt, they do a good job and they are all awesome and great and super friendly. And I would like to thank the customers that we have because we have some very loyal and dedicated customers and we love them, everyone is like family." Bezdeck said.
Bezdeck assures everyone they will be back from Anchorage in time for the food truck rally on Friday.
