Pizza delivery

Where are you eating and what do you think? What's opening, closing, succeeding, failing?

Pizza delivery

Postby Huckleby » Thu Oct 18, 2012 3:04 pm

I occasionally get pizza from Pizza Extreme. They have good specials, quality is good.

Tried Falbos a couple times. They are a bit more expensive, but their thin crust is EXCELLENT. I wil probably go with them in future.

Delivered pizza can be pretty awful. What are your experiences? Has it ever worked-out like in the porn movies?

I'll say this: Stoughton has two excellent choices for pizza. Marsala's and Famous Yeti's.

From the latter, the Yeti Spaghetti (pizza stuffed with spaghetti and meatballs) is boss.

You're not still tipping with cash are you?

Falbo Bros.' thin crust is indeed excellent, especially when cut into squares (it's the closest I can get to the pizza I had when growing up in Chicago), but mother of God, I've tried every method possible -- microwave, toaster oven, heating on the stovetop -- and it is impossible to reheat without it becoming a gooey, awful mess.

I didn't have this problem with Falbo Bros. when I lived in Dubuque, so I wonder if there's something being done differently at the Middleton location. (Too much cheese, perhaps.)

I can't believe anyone with a choice would order Falbo's. I can only assume you're stoned to the bejesus belt and it's 4 AM when you're ordering. Otherwise, it defies credulity.

I don't order pizza all that often anymore, but I do have kids so it's one of those standby, "in-a-pinch" meals. I typically go with Buck's because they do a great cracker crust, they're super quick and they're not far from my house. They don't deliver however. Other than that, it's been Rossi's of late, but again, not delivery. We do dine-in to take advantage of the vintage arcade. The pizza isn't all that, but there's no substitute for a 2-player game on an original Mario Brothers machine with your 5-year-old son.

Went to Rossi's Friday night it was busy but I did have some old video game fun. The food is good as I expected, all the kids wanted to play air hockey. The wife and I played Joust , Galaga and Tempest good times.

You disparage Falbos, then recommend in preference two places that don't deliver?

To change the topic wildly, reminds of that old PBS show "The Frugal Gourmet", where every dish was lavish and full of exotic and expensive ingredients. (I exaggerate only slighly.) Real frugal cooking involves rice, beans and an onion. Or perhaps on the weekend a cheap cut of meat and a can of mushroom soup.

Rossi's delivers. Mean was indicating that the preferred method of receiving Rossi's into one's piehole is in-house, so as to avail oneself of the arcade.

Yeah, what tBP said. Rossi's delivers, though it wouldn't be my first choice. I'd go Pizza Oven first if I needed it brought to me.

But yes, I will disparage Falbo's every chance I get.

My go-to out on the west side for delivery is Rosati's, and I always go with the thin crust. I am particularly fond of their white pizza.
But if I want hand-tossed, I go with Falbo's. I'm not even sure I've ever tried their thin crust. I do know enough to avoid their stuffed, however, which is just a gloppy mess. If I just gotta have a stuffed pizza, I go with Extreme (whose other crusts I am not a fan of) but that only happens about once a year.

Better than any of their pizza, however, is Falbo's alfredo bacon cheese bread. That shit is to die for. {drool}

I'll second Falbo's hand-tossed deep dish, specifically the Italian Stallion. I don't order it too often but occasionally my cravings cannot be ignored.

After the Great Taste I found myself in Sun Prairie at my friend's house and I ordered Salvatore's for delivery. It may have had something to do with the copious tasting several hours before but that shit was delicious.

Check that: Stoughton has one excellent choice for pizza. Marsala's is out of business (for the third time).
