Tossing pies is a family business

It’s all in the family at Nik-N-Willie’s Pizza.

The Llewellyn family — Randy, Denise and Amanda — have taken over the Emerald Bay Road pizza parlor, reopening under new management Oct. 1, following a six-month closure.

The eatery was formerly owned by Eugene and Erin Justus.

The Llewellyns have lived in Tahoe for 30 years. Randy Llewellyn established Randy’s Locksmith in 1986. He owns Ducks on the Lake Carwash and serves as music director at Sierra Community Church.

Denise Llewellyn is a home-schooling mother, who tosses pizzas between math and English lessons.

Nik-N-Willie’s serves pizza — including the Teriyaki Delight, salads, hot wings and garlic cheese bread. The restaurant reports dishing out 102 pizzas to the Friday dinner crowd.

It’s open 11:30 a.m. to 8 p.m., Sunday through Thursday; and 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., Friday and Saturday. The pizza parlor can be reached at (530) 544-8284.
