Dayton, Ohio, kids looking for a little one-on-one time with Saint Nick are in luck, thanks to the “Lunch with Santa” promotion going on this month at various locations of Uno Pizzeria & Grill.

Parents can book reservations for their children to sit down and bend Santa’s ear about serious Christmas loot while munching on pizza. The first two sessions at Uno’s North Main Street location in Dayton, Ohio, were held on December 15 and 16 and will be offered again on December 22 and 23, just in the “nick” of time before the jolly old elf finalizes his list of the naughty and the nice.

In Oaks, Pennsylvania, two seatings were available—at 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.—on December 16. Each seating lasted an hour and a half. The sessions cost $9.99 per child, and activities included pictures and a chat with Santa Claus, a supervised crafts and coloring table, a cookie-decorating station and story time.

Santa isn’t the only famous guest showing up for lunchtime visits at Uno. His “polar opposite” has made appearances for “Lunch with the Grinch” at the Homestead, Pennsylvania location. Sessions run from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on designated days in December. For $15, children can enjoy pizza, crafts, a treat bag and a meet-and-greet with Whoville’s most notorious Christmas burglar.
