Most important to Blue Highway are our Guests
Our regulars feel that Blue Highway is their special place to get really great, quality food with personal and attentive service in a fun, funky and relaxed atmosphere.
We take great pride in our culinary culture; serving the highest quality fresh, local, organic (when possible), and expertly prepared food. We support our team members by paying greater than industry standards, offering group health insurance, paid time off and investing in ongoing training. We also feed our team well, offering discounts both on and off the job. We share in our success by contributing financially to local community organizations focused on hunger and the local environment. We try to make as small a footprint as we can by reducing, reusing and recycling. We properly dispose of all glass, aluminum, plastic, cardboard, cooking oil, and we use green ware to help keep Florida and our planet beautiful.
Down the street, miles from ordinary
The original Blue Highway, a pizzeria is a small roadside restaurant located on scenic Highway 441, at the entrance to historic Micanopy between Ocala and Gainesville, Florida. Famous for antiques and as the location for the film Doc Hollywood, the small unbelievably picturesque town is home to the original “Highway to Pizza Heaven.” The ambiance is fun, funky, and casual, reminding you that driving down the blue highways of small town USA can bring unexpected treasures.
Blue Highway at Tioga, located in Tioga Town Center, the second location, opened in 2009, answering the demand for high quality pizza in the more suburban NW Gainesville area. It’s a slightly more “uptown” setting but the food is just as incredible as it is at our original location. We have also been able to add pastas and fabulous daily specials to the menu. The Tioga Town Center location has a lot going on; concerts, movies, shopping and of course great food! All located just 3 miles west of the I75 Newberry Road exit.
The newest Blue Highway is located right on Silver Springs Blvd. in Ocala, the heart of horse country and only miles from the legendary Silver Springs State Park where the old Tarzan movies were filmed. Our Ocala Guests were tired of the drive to Micanopy to get Blue Highway so we built a restaurant just for them. We were awarded Ocala’s Best New Eatery in Ocala Magazine in our first year of business. While we have grown we have remained true to our first commitment; great food and great service.
