New Dining With An Old Favorite

It's an old favorite with a new twist. The Pizza Hut in Kilgore is now an Italian Bistro. The new restaurant is the first one with the bistro concept in the country.

The owners say the company was ready for a change.

The new menu includes Italian appetizers, sandwiches, and a whole lot more. "Our sandwiches are a sourdough type bun. We have more sandwiches than we've had in the past. We have nine different pasta dinners and there are 10 gourmet pizzas," says owner Ernie Stith.

In August, the new bistro will also add a carb-friendly pizza to the menu. There are two more Pizza Hut Italian Bistros headed to East Texas. We're getting one in Athens and one in Jacksonville.
