Hey, I forgot to come back here & tell y'all that I tried that pizza at Chicago Cafe that CP mentioned. Someone recommended it on another thread.

It's not as good as the pizza in Chicago, but then that would have been a tall order really. BUT, it was delicious & I really like the owner. My husband and I had a great time swapping stories with him. The one I had was a thin crust, deep dish with everything.

He's a little pricey is he ? He has great hot dogs , I just felt like he charges too much for a small hot dog. Seem like it was $3.50 or more.

My husband ate there every other day when he first got here. I don't remember him complaining about pricing, but then he had it straight like the owner recommended and not so southern style. Got to pay attention to pricing next time I'm in there.

The food is a great and I love that it isn't a corporate biz. It's getting harder and harder to find non-corporate places. Hard for them to stick around without community support.

I don't think the pizza is pricey for what you are getting. Two people, well two of me anyway, could have split a small one & left full. Now, I haven't tried the hot dogs yet. I look forward to trying a brats next...like those better than hot dogs.

Glad you enjoyed it, new to town!!
Joy, I'm quite sure that "new to town" enjoyed Chicago Cafe...read the recent posts by NTT and see if you come to the conclusion that I do. I mean come on, if you own (or have a strong personal interest in) a restaurant just come on here and say so. I'd appreciate that more than someone who "poses" as someone wanting to know about pizza, acts as if he/she recently tried Chicago Cafe, but has posts leading back to August in which he/she touted Chicago Cafe (even listing which bands were playing) on numerous threads.

I think "new to town" who formerly had other names is utilizing just another way to promote business!
I won't fault anyone for promoting their business, and will not assume that is what has been done. (You know what they say about assuming something right?) The food is good and IMO it does speak for itself, but if people are too stuck in their corporate minded spending/eating they will never go down the street to a family owned business and try it out...it doesn't have the golden arches out front.
Oh, I don't fault anyone for promoting their business. I just think one should be up front about it versus the pathetic attempt of this person.

As for assumptions, yep, I know what they say. You are saying that I made an ass of myself. You know, I probably did but I'd bet you (though no way to prove it) that this is the same person who continues to "tout" Chicago Cafe...so I stand by that even if it is an assumption.

I will tell you what my assumption is right now...YOU'VE added yet another name.

2bits, I wasn't meaning you had made an ass of yourself. It was a lot more amusing in my head. Apologies...

What do you mean, "YOU'VE" added yet another name? As the business owner? Nope, not a headache I would want. However, I am a strong advocate for supporting local business.

A topic of discussion in our house these days has been the crap you get at corporate establishments. A friend of ours owns a family grocery...the large corporate 'mart has been trying to put him out of business using what is IMO some pretty unethical practices. Hate to see it happen. Chains have their purpose, but I hate to see mom&pop shops sacrificed.


oops...tripped off my soapbox.

where can I get a good pizza .... not puffy crust franchise junk??? thin or deep dish with out the puffy dough?? any help.........



Wouldn't that be a thin crust pizza anywhere? As far as franchise stuff, I don't think you could find a better pizza (and I do so love pizza) anywhere than the franchise "Mellow Mushroom". I don't care if you're from Chicago or Timbuktu, that place is good!!!!

I'm sure the Tuscaloosa crowd on here can tell you how wonderful it is. I don't know if they have one in Huntsville yet, but Anniston (right off the interstate) and Birmingham have at least one.

I could eat it for breakfast!!!!!!

Well, if you are indeed right, 2, 2, (I like that! or maybe tutu), it backfired. Everybody on here likes a different pizza place! He got advertisement for ALL his competition. But I do notice he/she got their hot dog for $2.50 and they charged Joy over $3.00! I think they owe her a refund!!! Or maybe the new guy got a discount so he could advertise for them! That's a great idea!!! I think I'll try that with Publix!!!!Wait, I already bragged on them. Nevermind.

firstly Im a woman and the guy who said he own this place was as guy!!! I dont know about pricing ,only what they charged me. I will be back and tell him about this sites conversations.wow so much for southern hospitality

Hmmm, so you think I violated Southern Hospitality...NEVER!? Your name was Northern Pride or something like that before. I know because when I read your other posts it sounded like someone promoting the Chicago Cafe. We Southerners don't make apologies for our actions and we are up front about who and what we are which is what I think you should be because you promote the hell out of this business. I simply think you should come clean and say that you have an interest in this business. I know that I, for one, would respect the Chicago Cafe and it's owner more...

I know it's really of no consequence, but "2 bits" is a quarter... not 2 pennies. Sorry to interrupt.

When I typed it 2bits is what was in my head...then I realized the posters name was actually 2 pennies...you'd think I could have gotten it right after posting once...chalk it up to a long day. Smiler

Ian...when you typed (You know what they say about assuming something right?) I applied that the way I have always heard "the saying". Please enlighten me if it meant something else because I have never heard another "saying" of what assuming means. So...let me re-iterate that I have no problems with someone promoting their business but not as someone posing to have only recently tried the "WOW" food there. I simply find it tacky and even Southern Belles use that terminology. As for the 2 bits, I'm not sure how you got that confused with two pennies but the Jew in me will gladly trade you two pennies for two bits Smiler.
