Is it rude to ask a pizza place for a side of Ranch?


Is it rude to ask a pizza place in NY for a side of Ranch?

  1. To put on the pizza??? That's like asking for mayo on your pastrami sammich at Katz's!!

    1. not sure I understand the question? Is it for your pizza?

      1. Not rude, but pretty weird to New Yorkers and I am guessing some of the more artisanal places won't have it.

        1. I know what you're talking about, but I'm from the West Coast. Probably not rude, but you're sure to get a few stares...

          1. Not rude, but probably pointless. Your basic slice vendor here probably doesn't feature salads, and won't have dressing of any sort available. Even a family-style place with a bigger menu might not not have ranch dressing as an option.

            Have you tried pizza w/o ranch yet?
