REVIEW: Domino's

Way better than they used to be, Jul 27, 2019

Location: 12538 Warwick Blvd, Newport News, VA

I've always been a Domino's Pizza apologist. Even before they revamped their pizza in 2009, I thought it was pretty good. Good enough to have when I had a coupon or they had some sort of deal at least. Back in the mid-90s, they had breadsticks they called twisty bread and they were amazing. After the pizza revamp, Domino's went from pretty decent to really great. I love everything about this pizza. The crust is seasoned and zesty and makes it into a great breadstick once that is all that is left. The pizza tracker app is genius and I love knowing almost exactly when the driver is going to arrive. The pizza only took around 22 minu...(more)

REVIEW: Dough Boys Pizza

Casual Virginia Beach venue, Jun 22, 2019

Location: 2410 Atlantic Ave, Virginia Beach, VA - https://doughboyspizza.com/

We drove down to Virginia Beach for our anniversary since we had not had a chance to really experience it yet. We were near there for a wedding on the beach, but it was a residential area, so it didn't really count. A couple of blocks from where we parked, Google Maps showed this place and with it, pretty good reviews, so off we went. The venue was a typical beach place, with indoor and outdoor seating and a bar straddling both areas. We sat outside and were pleasantly surprised by the availability of pizza by the slice any way you want it. I went with two sl...(more)

REVIEW: Mellow Mushroom

Very mellow, but hold the mushrooms, please, Nov 22, 2018

Location: 12090 Jefferson Ave., Newport News, VA

For the longest time, I had no idea that Mellow Mushroom was even a thing. It wasn't where I grew up nor anywhere I visited. Then we moved to Georgia and after a long day of looking at houses, we did a search for pizza places and up comes Mellow Mushroom. Turns out that the place is legit and we ended up going there relatively often while in Georgia. Years later, we move to Virginia and there is also a MM here fairly close to where we live. This particular visit is not from our first time there, but after we had already been in town a couple of years. MM is fairly divisive it seems - some many people really like it, but a vocal ...(more)

REVIEW: Harris Teeter

Grocery store chain makes fresh pizza to order, May 28, 2018

Location: 12404 Warwick Blvd Warwick Boulevard, Newport News, VA

Last month I reviewed airport pizza and in a similar vein, grocery store pizza has a significant chance to be especially not great. This grocery store is near where we live and we went to check it out and buy some groceries and while doing so, saw that they make fresh to order pizza there as well as by the slice. It looked a like a pretty good set up and the pizza looked appetizing so I decided I would try it sometime in the future (it was not near a meal time at that moment). Also, on Mondays they had a special for entire pizzas for like eight dollars or something. So I did what anyone would do and went back on...(more)

REVIEW: Lahaina Chicken Company

They obviously also had pizza, Apr 18, 2018

Location: Honolulu Airport

Airport pizza is risky. It is always overpriced as is all food at an airport, and has a better than even chance that the pizza will not be very good. When stuck at an airport, choices are limited and one must often settle. Luckily, in this case, I was able to find a place that made personal pizzas to order and it wasn't that busy to boot. It was also rather close to where my gate was, so I could easily carry it back to where my party was hanging out. It did take far too long to prepare, but then again, this place wasn't billed as one of those "fast-fired" joints so I guess it was fast enough. When I got the pizza, sat down and opened the box, this is...(more)
