Thanks!

    Cote Sud delivers pizza, not sure about the rest of their menu. My favorite pizza in town. Pepperoni's pizza delivers, also.

    I did not know Mona's delivers, handy info, thanks!

        NY Pizza (on Magazine)
        World's Healthiest Pizza (has anyone eaten this stuff? please report.)
        Dough Bowl (surprisingly good, considering how close it is to the Boot)

          I have tried the world's healthiest pizza. It's pretty good for what it claims to be: healthy pizza. Far from delicious, but it wasn't bad at all. Just healthy-tasting, filling, kinda heavy in a whole-grain, fiber-y sort of way. Makes me want to drink water just thinking about it... And, the toppings were good quality.

          Hot Wok delivers now. I forgot what street it's on, I think it's Louisiana. It's in the same plaza as the blockbuster and subways on Magazine. That's the best best for chinese devliery uptown. Red Star is too far and slow for my chinese fix. Mikimoto delivers too.

              Ate hot wok the other day for the first time. It was good and cheap. Lomein was awesome.

              Doesn't 5 Happpiness deliver?

              Beware the Mons'a delivery guy- one time I tipped him 10% and he said that he should get at least 15% which is conveniently shown on the receipt. I gave him 2 extra bucks but vowed to go pick it up myself next time.

              What is the appropriate tip for delivery? (In good weather)

                Yes, 5 happiness delivers. I tip 10%-20%, guess it depends on my mood and the weather.

                I really want to order Hot Wok but don't know what to get and there is no menu online. Somebody help!

                And what about a phone number?

                  I tried Hot Wok about two weeks after it opened but was not impressed. I had mooshu pork that was pretty dry and nasty. August Moon is better, not that that's saying much.

                  Also, I got a delivery menu from Sake Cafe this week, for what that's worth.

                    i used to get delivery from this chinese place on jefferson hwy but after the storm they stopped. Chinese food always runs the risk of being sub par but if you need to get that quick fix, i recommend hot wok over august moon and red star.

                  Hana sushi bar used to deliver, but I'm not sure if they still do. I eat World's Healthiest pizza at least once a week, and I love it. There's a bit of adjustment to the crust since they use whole grains, but it's not heavy because they don't add any fat or sugar to the crust. And, while they deliver, they also offer a $5 coupon on all large pizzas if you go pick it up yourself.

                    I tried World's Healthiest Pizza once and it was no good. The crust is not light at all - really thick and dense.

                    Does anyone agree on the best chinese delivery uptown? I can't remember if I like August Moo, Five Happiness or Mikimoto best.

                      WHP is great and it doesn't make any illusions about what it is. It's a much healthier version of pizza. It's enough to satisfy a craving without bombarding you with a bunch of calories and other junk.

                      Five Happiness is definitely the best Chinese delivery uptown imho. http://fivehappiness.com/

                    The Balcony Bar on Magazine has fantastic pizza and delivers until extremely late at night (I personally haven't tried past midnight but the delivery guy said that they stay open much later). They also have other bar standards - calzones, cheese fries, sandwiches - but I'm hooked on their thin crust pizza and haven't strayed.

                      I always order Roman Pizza when I'm getting delivery pizza; I think it is the BOMB. Their other food is decent and the two-fer deal is a pretty good value too. I like their wings a lot.

                      I haven't found any good delivery for Chinese yet -- no one can really match the grease-to-cheap ratio that I'm looking for and I've pretty much tried everything in the area. I always end up picking it up from China Orchid because it's close to where I live and next to the daquiri shack on Carrollton (although warning: the chinese food/frozen beverage mix is not for those with a weak stomach).
