A new kind of mediocre

Dominos for a long time had been a long time runner with Pizza Hut for nationwide pizza delivery restaurant francise.  Pizza Hut was gourmet and pricy and Dominos was cheap and, cheap.  With more chains showing up, Dominoes kept up by offering new menu items like chicken wings and breadsticks but it's pizza suffered.

Dominos listened and ran a major ad campaign for a NEW pizza that has more tomatoes in it's sauce and more herbs and seasonings in the crust.  The pizza is...better but it's still in poor company compared to Papa Johns or Pizza Hut.  The meat is richer and thicker and the crust is indeed tastier but something about the pizza is still amiss.

It could be worse though.  It could have gotten a lot worse and it's at least an alternative to our old favorites.  Now, if they could bring back the old style Deep Dish from the mid 90's.

Awesome review, John!  Never really was a fan of Domino's, but you're still making me crave pizza.  Do I smell a pizza list a'brewin' from Lunch's resident pizza expert? ;P

Thank you. Pizza List? You bet. I'll get to that sooner or later.

Round Tables Pizza is my all time favorite. I haven't been a fan of Domino's since I graduated from college and could actually afford better pizzas. I can't stand Pizza Hut either, though! I tried Papa John's once, and I was pretty impressed. I always have trouble finding those places. Lately, I have been eating pizza from "Smugs," a local joint. It's really good pizza!

I love Round Table. I only wish that we had them around here since the lat time I had them was in the 90's! Smugs sounds good. I have Nick N' Willy's which is a small nationwide chain but it's really good.

Yeah, I'm getting inspired to write 2 pizza reviews, one on Smugs and one on Round Tables. I am a HUGE fan of pizza, it is my favorite food next to Cheese Enchiladas. If I don't like a chain's pizza, then something is wrong with it...because I LOVE pizza! :)
