Situated in North Capitol Hill and just seconds from downtown Denver, Mike Kienast opened Walter's Pizzeria in late November 2010. Like the pizza, this "joint's" name is quite unique. You might ask, "Who the hell is Walter?" Well, let's just say, Mike and his wife, Jen, will never forget how it all came about.
You see, about three years into their unshakable relationship, all Jen heard day in and day out was about Mike's master plan to bring the "best tasting pizza ever" to Denver. Jen, wanting to chime in on "pizza boy's" plans, suggested he name his new enterprise "Walter's Pizzeria". With Mike's mind always going a million miles an hour he glossed over this "suggestion" and kept going. Well, another two years passed and as Mike got closer to his LIFE- LONG goal, it came up again; what should he name his pizzeria? Once again, Jen chimed in, "how about Walter's?" This time, Mike paused, actually hearing and processing this suggestion, and asked, "Why do you want me to name it Walter's"? Jen responed, with a distinct "Duh" face, "It's your middle name, stupid!" Taking Jen's hand in his he replied simply, "Hi, my name is Michael "Wayne" Kienast! Nice to meet you!" Well, as they say, it's always good to have a little mystery to keep things hot, just like Walter's Pizza!
