Uncle Joe’s to open in Talliano’s space

WICHITA — A new restaurant is going in the former Talliano’s Pizzeria space, and this one’s a pizza place, too.

Joe Arensdorf is opening Uncle Joe’s at 8404 W. 13th St., which is near 13th and Tyler.

“I eat pizza a lot, and I think other people do, too,” says Arensdorf, who has been in the business for years.

“I got tired of working for other people,” he says.

His restaurant, which will be ready in about four weeks, will be open seven days a week to serve a pizza buffet, sandwiches and wings.

“I’m exploring stromboli and pepperoni rolls,” Arensdorf says.

There’s not a particular kind of pizza or crust Uncle Joe’s will specialize in, Arensdorf says.

“Just good, old-fashioned pizza.”
