And conveniently located right around the corner, the general public and hospital staff now have a new delicious option for dinner or lunch.
Business has been good, with a 30% increase each week said the management.
Formerly Tony’s Pizza the restaurant is now RJ’s Pizza, Wings & Beer. When asked why he decided to open a restaurant in Tulare, Shandrew said that he was looking to expand his business and when he saw the opportunity in Tulare, he took it.
His specialties are pizza, wings, and beer, with his newest item Spicy Chicken Bacon Ranch Pizza at $10.99 for a large. Also on the menu is garlic fries, full salad bar, mozzarella sticks and fried cheese ravioli.
A dessert specialty is Churro Delight–churros surrounding a scoop of chocolate ice cream and topped with whipped cream.

Creating an outdoor seating area is in the works and perfect for Date Night. The restaurant has 10 employees, with most being under the age of 21. For anyone interested, management is looking to hire more people over the age of 21 so they can serve alcohol.
