Jack’s Pizza – Jacks Pizza was located on North Broadway. It was owned by the Widdel family. Jack's Pizza was across from 1st Lutheran on the west side of North Broadway. They also had Toni’s Pizza. Toni’s Pizza was out by the Fairgrounds just off 4th Avenue (East Burdick Expressway). Toni’s was across the street from what is now the Holiday Inn about where the Capri Bar is now located. The third pizza location, Pappy’s Pizza, was located on 3rd St NE. … The Widdels also had a bakery on 3rd St NE, in the area between 5th and 6th Avenue. Pappy's Pizza was located in the Bakery. The Widdel family is reported to have had the first pizza restaurant(s) in Minot. A good friend told me the first pizza he ate was at Pappy's Pizza on 3rd St.
