In 1972, the first Spaghetti Warehouse opened in the old Warehouse district of downtown Dallas. Victor Petta Jr. created hearty, made from scratch favorites by combining recipes handed down through generations of the Petta family with American abundance.

Today that made-from-scratch handcrafted heritage lives in every one of our kitchens. From our Incredible 15-Layer Lasagne to our World Famous Spaghetti and Meatballs, every dish on our menu is carefully cooked and prepared the way Chef Petta did over forty years ago.

Our commitment to quality has seen the Spaghetti Warehouse brand grow to more than 15 restaurants in 7 states. Why is there a Trolley in each of our restaurants?

Our iconic trolley is part of the Warehouse lore as many of our historic warehouse buildings had trolleys that went back and forth in front of the buildings during the late 1800s and early 1900s.

In our West End Dallas location an original East Dallas trolley car is located in the main dining room. In our Memphis location the trolley is the original one that was used for transportation in downtown Memphis. In Ybor City our Tampa location has a replica of an Ybor City street car.

Many of our trolleys are located in our main dining rooms and are the most sought after tables to enjoy our made-from-scratch handcrafted entres.

The original location, located in the West End of Dallas, Texas, opened in 1972.[3] The building was built in 1891 and served as a pillow factory for much of its history. One of the largest locations in the chain, including two floors and private dining rooms, it is credited as the first restaurant/retail business in the neighborhood that spurred the rebirth of the West End area of Downtown Dallas in the 70's and 80's. It is home to many former brass bed headboards, an old confessional, and the headboard and foot board of a bed that belonged to Stephen F. Austin, which is now a booth that fits up to 8 people. An original East Dallas trolley car is in the main dining room.
