Lilly's Pizza coming to Downtown Durham
As has been reported in a few places. Raleigh's Five Points pizza darling, Lilly's, is opening shop in Downtown Durham at the old Pop's Pizza location on Peabody. I've enjoyed their pies the few times I've had them.
I like their pizza, but hate the service and long waits. Stopped going because it will take up to 30 min's to order and then another long wait, and they just were not busy enough to cause this.
Hopefully this incarnation will be better than the one in Five Points.
Their list of ingredients is terrific. Most longtime Raleighites love the place and have fond memories of satisfying recreational induced munchies there.
Execution leaves much to be desired - the dough has always been undercooked to the point that it is still raw in the thicker areas of the crust.
Service is so appalling that after many visits at varied times of day/month/moon phase/mercury in and out of retrograde that I will not waste my money here again. I am not at all high maintenance, but the service has crossed the line of "don't give a sh*t" to abusive.
