No! Horrific radio commercials played repeatedly at least twice an hour. It's awful.

Do you get lawyer commercials in your area???? "Jim Adler---the smart lawyer who will fight for you and get you every dime that you deserve..........I'm SOOOOOOOOOOO sick of them"........my mute button is just about worn out.......I have never heard any commercials for pizza in our area...I guess they don't need to and now they don't even give out coupons or have free delivery.....

Worst Pizza I ever had was definately last week. We ordered a Pepperoni, they deliver a cheese pizza instead, the dough was soggy, undercooked and there was almost zero sauce, which wasn't good anyway. It was a total disappointment, I had to saute pepperoni and drizzle some extra sauce I had laying around just to make it edible.

Well, I think it's all about where you grow up, and what kind of pizza you grew up eating.

I grew up in the Tulsa area of OK. Mazzio's (and Ken's, same company, really) is really big here. That's what I grew up eating, and what I prefer. I like their sauce. Most of their crusts are fine, be it thick, thin, medium, etc.

I've never been a really big fan of Domino's, although that's what PeppA usually orders. When we lived in Jackson, MI, for a few years (that's where she's from), she also liked Andy's Pizza. I wasn't that impressed with it. All toppings on top of the cheese, on a medium whole-wheat crust. It was really hard for me to get a decent "bite" out of it without resorting to a fork. The taste was OK.

I'm not a big fan of Poppa John's either. Pizza Hut is OK, but greasy. I haven't had Little Caesar's in a long time. Simple Simon's used to be the big "cheap" pizzeria chain here, but they've largely gone the way of the Doe-doe. My family, and some friends, have told me of a new locally-owned chain called "Cheesy's", which is supposedly rather good, and, dirt-cheap. I haven't tried them yet, so I don't know for sure.

Imho, the only chain pizza that is decent-to-good is Bertucci's, and that's a limited, regional chain. I hope they don't plan any more expansion, because it seems with expansion comes loss of quality...

I like straight forward, easy, not much muss or fuss pizza.
The thin crust, tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella, and tons of it, or not, and basil.

I love all pizza, just can't help myself. The best is homemade, followed by Uno's, Lumalnati's, and Dewey's. The worst are the cheap frozen ones and Little Ceasars.

Um, I love Hawaiian Pizza... guess that makes me wierd huh
