Town Spa Pizza- What Am I missing?

Driving by this place we saw that it was insanely busy as people were waiting for a table parking was maxed out. So we decided to try a pizza for takeout to see what the fuss was about and ordered a "Hawain" Pizza (pineapple and ham).

After 20 minutes pizza was ready and we were very disappointed. I swear that by the taste of it that this pizza was frozen then put in the oven when we ordered. It tasted EXACTLY like the 99 cent Mr P's frozen pizza from the supermarket.

So I dunno why this place is so busy because obviously the attraction is lost on me.

    I find the place to be inconsistent. When it's good, it has some of the best bar pizza in the Boston area and when it's bad, well, it's really bad.

      Hawaiian pizza isn't a true judge of pizza quality.

      Try their pepperoni, their linguica, or their meatsauce pizza, then get back to us.

      I think it's two things:

      1. You grow up eating it so you're used to it.
      2. Everyone else has grown up eating it.

      You have both the personal and crowd context. Must be good.

      My 2 cents: it's ok. If you define "bar pizza" as not very good pizza, then this is a decent bar pizza.

        I think you're missing the original recipe. Something changed a few years ago and it just aint what it used to be. Maybe they doubled the msg in the sauce or something. I used to love it and would send out for 3 or 4 pies - no more. Something has changed.

          I love it, but haven't had it for 5-6 years. I recall that it is far better when you order it "crispy" or "extra-crispy".

            Maybe I will try it again and ask for crispy. I also have to ask for a not frozen pizza because I know that my pizza was frozen then baked to my order. I can't be convinced otherwise.

              If I recall, Lamberts in Westwood sold frozen Town Spa pizzas a while back. Perhaps they're using up stock.
