Steve’s Pizza Palace is a family-friendly dine-in, carry-out, and delivery pizza restaurant located in Platteville, Wisconsin. Founded in 1963 by Steve and Stella (Zaimes) Blatzas, Grecian immigrants that came to the United States of American in 1955 with virtually nothing when they immigrated during the big immigration wave of the 1950’s from Katerini where they moved to after the village of Katafugi that they originally lived in was bombed in World War II by the Germans. Steve worked at different restaurants in Duluth, Minnesota, and in 1963 he decided to open up his own restaurant business; Steve’s Pizza Palace in Platteville.
Steve and Stella ran Steve’s Pizza Palace for four years before selling it to Stella’s youngest and oldest brothers, Nick and John Zaimes in 1968. In 1980, Steve’s Pizza Palace was sold to Stella’s brother and sister-in-law, Patrick and Nina; who made a few changes to the business, including the introduction of the sale of beer and cigarettes. In 1988, Steve’s Pizza Palace was sold outside of the Zaimes family to the Patakos family, another Greek family that learned the art of pizza making in River Falls when they were invited to move there from Greece by Paul Poulios; brother of Eleni Patakos.
