The entrance at the new Cici’s.

The new Cici’s Pizza is now open in the Royal Highlands shopping center next to Tom Thumb, just a short move from its former location at Whitehurst, Skillman and LBJ. It’s an even shorter distance from the original site on the other side of Tom Thumb under the old Janie Christy School of Dance, but now I’m really showing my age.

Expect to see shiny new hardware, colorful new tables and the traditional all-you-care-to-eat buffet. Oh and, yes, employees still greet you at the door with their customary, “Hi, welcome to Cici’s!”

Bavarian pizza dessert, anyone?
