    About The Planing Mill


    Consider us your neighborhood pizza parlor with a gourmet twist. We visited some of the greatest pizzerias on the West Coast, took the best parts of each, and brought them to Visalia as best we could. Then we added our own Central Valley twist. The end result is our menu of  hearty, flavorful pizzas made with the freshest ingredients, locally sourced whenever possible. From the adventurous “Thai Pie” to the customer favorite “Kitchen Sink”, there’s truly something for all types of pizza lovers. We rounded out our menu with a variety of signature sandwiches, farm fresh salads, and delicious appetizers like our bruschetta and artichoke fritters.

    Then there’s the beer. Twenty-one taps of fresh craft beer and cider plus a massive variety of cans and bottles.

    At The Planing Mill, we are committed to providing great food and guest service in a comfortable, family friendly atmosphere. We are also dedicated to serving our community through our monthly “Pizza with a Purpose” non-profit fundraisers and other efforts.

    Come see our spacious new location, complete with outdoor patio and lawn area. We think you’ll find The Planing Mill to be a pretty fun place to eat, drink and be merry with friends and family!

    But don’t just take our word for it. In 2017, the Visalia Chamber of Commerce named us Small Business of the Year!


    A lot of people see our name and spend the next few seconds trying to say it. Let us help. It’s pronounced “PLAIN-ing” Mill, though there’s certainly nothing “plain” about us!

    So why the name? Our first location was part of the original Visalia Planing Mill. Founded in 1851, the mill crafted specialty wood products for generations of Visalians. In fact, many older homes and businesses in town have doors and cabinets that were hand-crafted right here on our property. In honor of this legacy, and as a reflection of our commitment to artisanship, the name fit perfectly.

    After a 6 month absence The Geek On Fleek, Devin Alexander makes his return to Quizmaster duties, as he filled in for Brian at the Planning Mill. Luckily he was wearing his neon green "King Trivia Event Staff" shirt, so not too many players we're confused when "Beautiful" Brian Schulte was not present.

    The Planning Mill staff and patrons seemed to enjoy The Geeks obscure catch phrases, and everyone seemed to have a great time.

    For the first 4 rounds Burt Reynold's Ghost, 3's Company, and You're A Quizzard Harry were neck and neck. With Monchichis sticking around right behind them. A missed double or nothing dropped Burt Reynold's Ghost in the 5th round, with Dr. Google, Nation of Quizlam, and Honorable Mention making a comeback.

    In the end everyone was invited to "come and knock on our door" as 3's Company would take the win, getting the $3o gift card. Nation of Quizlam were the runners up, getting the $20 gift card, and Quizical Therapists got 3rd and a $10 gift card. The Monchichis must really like the King Trivia pens, they were behind Quizical Therapists by 1 point. Had they returned their pen they could have been $10 richer.

    Alas, we had a fun time at The Planning Mill, many of us enjoying $2 tacos, and beers.

    As the sun set on our trivia journey, The Geek On Fleek reminded them to drive home safe and as always "don't eat yellow snow."
