  1. We got pizza from them fairly often in Seattle. We liked them quite a bit.

      Ditto, when we were in the Seattle area we'd pick up from them as well.

      They opened one near our house in Phoenix within the last couple years. We didn't like it as well....maybe with growth the quality has gone down?

        Sure could be. I checked out their website and it appears they're growing very quickly and franchising aggressively. I have no idea how they handle sourcing ingredients, so that could be an issue as well I suppose.

          it is always a ?? as to how expansion affects quality.

    2. A former coworker of mine just opened a PM here in Greater Cincinnati. I haven't gotten a pie yet but from what I'm hearing, he can't' keep up with demand. It would be a good option for me as I keep rather strange hours.

      1. If you're a pizza snob who only likes pizza that strictly adheres to a certain style (New York style, Neopolitan, etc.), you'll hate it, but it's quite good if you like pizza in general. The crust, though just medium thickness, has more of a focaccia-like texture.

        1. Don't forget to get a card. Everytime you buy a pie, they stamp to date. Buy ten pies and the next one is free

          1. The standard pizza is pretty boring. Not bad, just boring. The pies that use the Garlic sauce instead of the red, are better. The Gourmet garlic chicken, and the new artichoke bacon and whatever, are better than anything Pizza Hut, Domino's, Papa Johns, could ever conceive of. It is the only chain pie I will eat.
