You could say that Tyler Barnes made a name for himself going dough to dough… from spinning pizza to owning the business.

A couple of years later, Tyler returned to Terry’s Pizza as manager. In 1986, Tyler bought the business and subsequently renamed it Tyroni’s, a nickname his in-laws created by eliding Tyler and pepperoni. Today Tyroni’s Italian Cafe is one of greater Peoria’s favorite dining spots. We appreciate our Senior Citizens 62 and older ~ 10% discount... Dine-In only, alcohol not included. From our family to yours, we'll serve you the best Italian food. We make every item to order - please tell us how you like it. Thanks for visiting!
