It also has its own arcade where guests can play classic games like Pac-Man, Donkey Kong and Frogger. Pizzas predominate at Slice of the ’80s. These include special varieties like the Radical (topped with mozzarella, pepperoni, ham, beef, bacon and sausage) and Kielbasazza (thinly sliced kielbasa, bacon, sweet roasted peppers and cheddar cheese).
