If the walls of this iconic Dallas restaurant could talk, we would certainly know more about its colorful history than its Wikipedia page relays. Founded by Joseph Campisi in 1946, the dark and dingy spot is well-known for two of its former customers: Jack Ruby (who allegedly dined here the night before he killed Oswald) and Rick Wyll, a famous Jewish hit man. Hence, rumors of mob connections have swirled around the restaurant for more than 50 years. I’ve never looked good in cement shoes, so I’ll go on the record as saying the pizza at the Egyptian is still some of the best in town. The familiar oval shape is always delivered piping hot. The sausage and peppers? Not so much. Jump for more.
