Review: Langley AFB Bowling Alley

Does the stereotype hold?, Oct 25, 2017

Sure, there is not a lot of a point in reviewing pizza from a bowling alley, especially a bowling alley that isn't even open to the public. But hey, I had bowling league tonight, and I didn't have time to get food beforehand, and they served pizza. So, I tried it, and I'll review it. For starters, the price definitely seemed right. An individual pizza for $4.50 and $0.75 per topping? That means for just over $5 I can get a pepperoni pizza? Sold. Well, the reason it was so cheap soon became clear. I am not sure how well it comes across in the picture, but this thing was tiny. I'd guess it was maybe a 6" pizza. The crust was pretty poofy, making it reasonably filling, but it was not nearly en...(more)

Review: Anthony's Pizza

Based on a visit from 2 Oct 17, Oct 18, 2017

Anthony's Pizza is a place that anyone who has spent a decent amount of time on military bases is definitely familiar with. It is the AAFES (Army & Air Force Exchange Service) pizza chain, and once upon a time was located at just about every Army and Air Force base in the world. Due to many factors, including bad publicity, a rise in viable options, and a questionable product, Anthony's Pizza is a dying brand. Honestly, I don't understand the hate. Many people dismiss it as unappealing, but I find it to be a perfectly acceptable option. I think it beats the pants off of the chain that is currently replacing Anthony's just about everywhere: The vastly overrated Pizza Hut.

Every pizza place I've ever been to

That I can remember, anyway, Oct 11, 2017

I eaten a lot of pizza at a lot of places. It is kinda my thing. When I go somewhere, I try to find good pizza places. When I go to places to eat, I generally try the pizza if I haven't yet. This list will forever be incomplete, as my memory won't allow me to remember all the pizza I've had, but I will do my best. I will also include where I ate the pizza which is especially relevant for regional and local chains/1 off places, and approximately how many times I've eaten pizza form that place. I will link my review if I've done one and offer any additional notes if needed. For now, the list is in alphabetical order. I am flirting with the idea of trying to sort from my most to least favori...(more)

Review: Topolino, Wash DC

Topolino Italian Cuisine & Buffet, Oct 4, 2017

I recently had the chance to find myself in the greater DC area, near Andrews Air Force Base, so when it came time to eat I naturally searched for nearby pizza with good ratings and I was led to Topolino Italian Cuisine & Buffet. The website doesn't really make you believe that this place has good pizza - it seems more like an afterthought. The good news is that I've been to several Italian restaurants like this, and they've always had rather good pizza, and sometimes great pizza.

I went on September 22nd at lunch time, not long after 11 am, and it was fairly dead but starting to pick up. The hostess was nice and seated me at a booth ...(more)

People suck at ordering pizza for groups

Vegetarians ruin everything, Sep 23, 2017

I honestly don't know if this problem is widespread or I've just noticed it more than other people, but it never fails that when I attend a function or am in a situation that calls for ordering, say, 5 pizzas or more, the ordering of pizzas is completely botched. There are multiple ways to botch it, but the primary way this is done is in the determination of how many of what type of pizzas to order. Generally, once you reach a certain number of people eating the pizza, you get to the point where you can't ask everyone what they want and try to satisfy that. It becomes too complicated. Instead, you just order of a variety of different types of pizza and hope that there is something for every...(more)
