This popular Tuscaloosa pizza joint was opened by Fran Viselli in 1980 right on University Boulevard. Despite its relatively short run, Bama-Bino became a popular hang-out for Tuscaloosa college kids and was just as well known for its amazing pizza as the plastic elephant mascot cups they handed out. Viselli would open four locations over the next decade, but closed up shop in 1991 after Viselli said his business was boycotted when his son ran for president of the Student Government Association in 1988. Who knew student government politics could be so vicious?
