    I agree, and this Groupon is going to make it worse.
    Most people I know find it meh.

    I hate sogginess, and this place serves soggy pizza more often than not.

    I don't mind the dough or sogginess. It seems much less greasy than other fast food joints.

    But I just don't get the order up front set up. Seem so inefficient.

    Agree with the order up front setup. The waiter comes to the table for drinks anyways.

    I think it is a bit too soggy tho.

    The soggy crust is characteristic of Neapolitan style pizza. Pulcinellla prepares them the same way. I'm not a fan of it either but they are keeping it traditional since they are a Neapolitan pizzeria.

    I've been to all three of those places. But I live way in the filthy south and when I'm home I find Famoso a decent alternative. The prosciutto arugula pizza is usually pretty good, and I can say for sure the crust has never been soggy for that pizza at the mckenzie town location.

    Also their tomato soup is awesome.

    Me and the GF both bought one. Also Una is a gong show 95% of the time.

    I thought I was the only one! It was so weird when I asked for iced tea, the server informed me to head to the front. I went 'why?'

    The benefit of masks is not known at this time. But we do know it is some non-trivial amount more than zero.

    We also know that the cost of mask use is, essentially, zero.

    So the cost:benefit of mask use is approaching infinity. I'll take that every time. And every time I see someone without a mask, I think they are stupid.

    I don't think that reduces head count and if I have to leave my seat to order coffee or dessert, I am less likely to have either.

    My brother had food poisoning from the McKenzie location this weekend. I'm staying FARRRR away from this one!

    Exactly. I came to a restaurant to be served.

    If I wanted to get my own food, I'd go to a buffet or cook at my house.

    I really liked Famouso when I went. Found it to be comparable with Puchinella, WP, and UNA, but better priced and more toppings.

    Hmm thanks for the heads up about this place having the soggy style pizza. Can't fucking stand that crap.

    Too bad this wasn't for double zero instead

    X2. Well Pulcinella was actually quite good when I was there last.

    Spicey Calzone from Without Papers is deadly

    Went to the Country Hills one last night, and I agree, it's soggy, so soggy I couldn't cut through it with a knife. Had 2 people with me as well, and theirs had burnt crust bubbles everywhere. Go to Without Papers instead if you want legit pizza.

    My wife used to work here (for about six months) in the McKenzie Towne location.

    I wouldn't eat there again if you paid me.
