Linda Wiles: ‎ to What's Going On Muskogee OK!!

Was Lindenloft Pizza in a small strip mall on York back in the 70's? If so, what was the name of the mall and was it on the corner of York and Chandler where Homeland is now?
Shayla Christensen: Are they still open in shadow wood? Iíve been dying for some of their pizza here lately
Tracy Gatwood: Dad sold it 6-1-14 to the individuals that own it now.
Christina Lewis: I remember my dad telling me how he used to skip school with his friends and go to "the mall and get lindenloft's" and many other stories of Muskogee from back in the day, late 70s early 80s. It's created this burning passion for history, especially local history. I wish I could travel back and see for myself how it used to be. After a jr. high football game it would be standing room only with 300 people cramed in there.
Marsha Trueblood Horn: Garlic bread was Creamy italian dressing on bread toasted in the oven
Pam Welch Ross: I'll never forget the train and those alpine sticks.
Derrick Abel: Train is on display somewhere......In Muskogee at Lindenloft.com
ex Cheatham Lindenloft was the hangout back in the day
Carol Coleman: Don't remember the name of Mall area but yes that was where they were. Best place ever

Shayla Christensen: Are they still open in shadow wood? Iíve been dying for some of their pizza here lately

Jeanette Hunter Yes we are still
Open in Shadow Wood. We make the same alpine cheese bread, we bought the business from Johnny Linden 3 years ago. Our name is Three Rivers Pizzeria.

Beverly Redfearn Hiser My cousin and I used to go and play the sit down Ms. Pac Man game he had where you played against each other. It was great.

Tammy Chapman Calhoun Lindenloft pizza opened back up a few years ago in the bottom of shadow wood mall. Had great bbq and alpine pizza. No train but now someone else owns it now.
Derrick Abel: It was the Chandler road mall. I was the last manager there and I closed it down and did cleanup in 1988. I opened Hollywood Pizzeria in the lower level of shadowood mall. Johnny Linden gave me quite a bit of the original equipment and related items. He also developed my dough and we had the original alpine, cooked the correct way. He bought it from me in 2007. He ran it under lindenloft's for a few years and then sold it to Hunter enterprises, the building owner.
Derrick Abel I have the original alpine..I wonder if anyone would wanna buy it?
Larry Cragg You could share the alpine!!! I would go there just to eat the alpine. It was heaven back in those days.
Derrick Abel What if I bottled it and sold it
---------------------------------------------------- Beverly Redfearn Hiser Didn't they have shredded lettuce for their salads? Best alpine dressing and their chef salads were awesome.
Derrick Abel Yes. Shredded
Linda Wiles Was it torn down during all the roadwork on York?
Linda Wiles Then Albertsons built on the site.
Derrick Abel 1974 1988 was the years open. Lindenlofts
Jon M Edwards ...and you made and served pizza to my wife and I the last night of business. We will never forget that time.

Megan Shea Creamy Italian dressing and mozzarella makes a good substitute for their bread. It was good stuff.
Bonnie Walker: Yes, they were in the building where Zeps was in the 90's.
Johnny Linden: When Lindenloft closed on 4-1-88, someone opened a bar for a while, then Zepps opened for a few years.
Johnny Linden Someone remembered the 1st bar was called Legends.
Larry Cragg Ok. Derrick you need to come across. Alpine and the garlic bread which was to die for. Iíll buy it. 😜👍 Derrick Abel I have everything to make it. And do every so often
Donna Genn Johnston alias Donna Wilson Lindenloft manager: You can buy Alpine dressing at Simple Simons Pizza in ft Gibson
Chris Liebig Lindenlofts, which eventually became Zeppís Bar and Grill. Next to it was Tyís Hamburgers. In the back was Strictly Fitness. Across the parking lot was PJís liquor. When Strictly Fitness moved, Silver Buckle Saloon went in back there. It was called Chandler Road Mall. During the later times to my recollection.
Janet Goodwin-Ellis: There was also a bar called Legends.
Amantha Smith: So if you make it often why do we never get any? Hmmm?
Derrick Abel We can go down to my old pizza place some night and have a company meeting and enjoy some real alpine pizza and garlic bread. My treat.
Samantha Smith Sweet!
Johnny Linden: You can get the same exact alpine pizza on the buffet all day at Pisano's Pizza.
Derrick Abel: I'd like to open up a carry out and delivery lindenloft's again. But last time I didn't have community support.
Samantha Smith; I think from the sound of it there would be a lot of support now.
Monica Reece: I was there... Slot actually... Awesome place to eat.
Larry Cragg: Iíll pay to eat there. If I can get the garlic bread like it use to be Iíll eat there everyday.
Derrick Abel: That's easy enough
Larry Cragg: Ok Derrick Abel. Letís do this. I have money waiting to buy your food. 👍 Derrick Abel Need 25k to open.
