Ugo's pizza parlor. My brother owns it and has been making those delicious pizzas for over 20 years now. Originally it was located on E. Ellendale where the new Burger King is now. Now they're on main street right across from the Polk County Courthouse.
He's recently renovated the interior and has added pictures of the local kids ball teams, as well as military memorabilia from our relatives. On another wall he's putting family pictures. On the final wall, he may be putting up pictures of Oregon---taken by me.
Favorite Dish: Pizza---fresh rolled dough and fresh ingrediants on the pizza. I love the coarse ground corn mill used on the bottom of the crust to keep it from sticking.
Dallas Off The Beaten Path
Dallas even has a really nice park complete with an arboretum and small Japanese Gardens---all free. This picture was taken in early spring.
Crazy Days on Main Street in Dallas. This is taken from Ugo's, looking across at the courthouse lawn where some of the many booths are set up. This is a festival that has been going on every summer since I lived there. As a child, I really thought it was neat when they dropped ping pong balls from the air. The balls had numbers on them for different prizes. The fun was running around the stores on Main Street to see who had that number and what your prize was----kind of like an Easter Egg hunt. Unfortunately, they don't do this anymore.
Dallas has several farms. This one is one of them---a queen anne cherry orchard. If you're there in late June, you have to get some of these cherries! I believe they are the same as Rainier cherries. I remember picking them for money as a child, at this very orchard. Now they use a machine that rolls a tarp out on the ground, then a machine shakes the trees to get the cherries off. The cherries are then gently conveyed into a solution. Marishino cherries are made out of these kinds of cherries.
