Independence Square, 595 Hillsboro Road, has used the opportunity to spiff up this aging strip mall a bit.
Among the new businesses is Sal's Family Pizza, a true family-run pizza joint of the everyone wants in their neighborhood. It's a good addition to this corner of Franklin.
Yep, it's a good place to hang around, get a casual meal, watch TV or meet for a beer. If you really, really like hanging around, Sal's Family Pizza has a double-dog-dare pizza challenge: eat a 36-inch cheese pizza in an hour and you win. Not sure what you win — maybe a 36-inch cheese pizza. But anyway, you'd have the neighborhood bragging rights.
