Reporter Food: “The Special” at Red Devil Italian Restaurant in Holly

Reporter Food: “The Special” at Red Devil Italian Restaurant in Holly

(Crystal A. Proxmire, Sept. 24, 2019)

Holly, MI – In Downtown Holly there’s an Italian Restaurant known for their tasty pizzas, and I finally had the chance to try one recently when out with a friend for dinner.

One of the most popular pies at the Red Devil Italian Restaurant is “The Special.”  It starts with hand-tossed house-made dough and is topped with gobs of tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, ham, mushrooms, onion, and green peppers.

We also had bread sticks for a warmup, which were served with ranch dipping sauce.

The restaurant has been a part of the community since 1973, with the well-worn booths and tables having seated many longtime Holly villagers at various stages of their lives. It’s a popular spot for kids sports teams as well as family celebrations.

Other items include lasagna, spaghetti, meatball subs, burgers, and a house special called a “pizzelli” which is a baked sandwich made with round bread.

Red Devil Italian Restaurant is located at 104 S Broad St, Holly, MI 48442, and there is a second location in Fenton at 1155 N Leroy St. Check them out online at
