THAT much for pizza?

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
I'm ordering pizza for dinner tonight. I'm too lazy to cook
I called Papa Johns, Dominos, and Pizza Hut. For 2 pizzas, buffalo wings and breadsticks at all of them it was $38.00 !!!!!!!!!
I was like NO WAY! And that didn't include the delivery charge and tax!
We had to not get one of the orders of breadsticks and wings and it is still costing me $25.00.
Oh and they are SOOOO rude!
I ended up ordering at Papa Johns. They had the best special.
They were rude at Pizza hut and Dominos too. Papa Johns said I had to order online to get the special also... What happened to customer service?

Oh my gosh!! Isn't Pizza Hut or Dominos... something like that, have a special for 3 medium pizza's for $5 each? I keep seeing that commercial on TV - but why would you have to order online to get the special? What if you didnt' have internet hookup?! Wow... thats so spendy, $38.00, yikes!! Usually when John & I get Pizza Hut its like $20.00 and thats only for 1 large one topping and a family order of breadsticks!

Now I'm hungry for Pizza Hut

homemade dough is super easy in a food processor and you don't have to wait for it to rise as w regular dough.

or stock up on those boxes. that's what we had last night after the comical carpenter who spent 6.5 hours obsessing and talking until I paid him off and said I didn't think this was a good match. man were we glad to get rid of HIM. really sociable fellow but oy vey all the questions. argggggggggh

We normally order from one of the family owned pizza places they have better food, prices, and their staff is friendlier. And when the staff is rude I worry about what they do to your food when you make them mad.

that's why we go in to eat. at Pizza Hut here (I am not sure if they have this deal where you live, but you can ask) on Tuesdays.. there is a lunch buffet special. you buy one meal and soda and get a meal free and it's an all you can eat buffet until 1:30 pm.. so it's basically just a lunch thing.. it only costs us $8 and we don't even have tax.

and then we have this very good expensive, but worth it pizza place in town. It's called Mackenzie River Pizza Company.. you can get lil' buck pizzas and they are personal pan pizzas and they are only $8.. which isn't bad. I got my last check today for my temporary job.. so paid for dinner last night.. I told my parents I would take them out to dinner and then I shared a piece of peppermint cheesecake with my parents last night. sounded gross but it has an oreo cookie crust and I don't know what else is in it.. maybe those white chocolate candy cane kisses. it was scrumptious. oh yeah I got a side of pepperoni, too with my pizza.. since it had marinated artichoke hearts, sundried tomatoes, pesto, and almonds. it was good! the bill was only $29. and the piece of cheesecake was $5 but it was so worth it! you can get soups and sandwiches and salads and a whole bunch of other stuff at Mackenzie River Pizza..

I only like Pizza Hut here, Papa Murphys, and Mackenzie River Pizza for pizza places here. I cannot stand Dominos or Papa Johns. We used to have a little ceasers and it shut down years ago. tonight for dinner I am getting a chicken blt salad from wendys.. I am not eating out for awhile, though. I love pizza but I don't eat it all the time.

Wednesday night....a medium pizza with no toppings, a small house salad and a side of calamari for Ian....$30.

And that's absolutely cheap for around here. Normally, if I just want a small pizza, thin crust, one topping, not even deep dish, and I want it delivered, it's AT least $15.

We don't really have national pizza chains around here. I am aware of one Dominos and that's it. But then again, we have things like Giodano's, Lou Malnati's and Gino's East. So we don't miss Pizza Hut

You can have it shiippppeeeed!

It's totally overpriced, though. You'd be better off taking a road trip here!

The most we paid was $50 for CPK (California Pizza Kitchen). That was 2 medium pizzas delivered.
They each had 1 topping.

And B was STILL hungry.

I know pizza prices are getting out of hand We went to my sister in laws the other night and she ordered 1 large pizza with one topping and a order of bread sticks and it cost $39.00 and took them 2 hours to get us our pizza so we figured the pizza would be free nope guess again only half off how rude was that. so we have to still pay and eat cold pizza.

39$ for a pizza?? LoL! what a rip off.

I dont go to pizza hut, their pizzas are poo! Wayy too oily and its not even classified as real pizza! Although i may treat my self to pizza hut once a year..

I found this small new restaurant near my place, (okay actually my friend did ) and she treated me out the other day *bless* But guess what?? it was the best pizza ive ever eaten in frankfurt and it was only 4$!!!!! INCLUDING TAX!! You bet i will be going there again!

I hate the fact that we always get a zillion coupons for pizza in the junk mail and then we try to use them and they say "yes they will take it" and then the delivery guy gets there and he is like "I'm sorry but I cant take that coupon"!

We have a pizza place on my side of town and it is so good and so cheap. You can get an order of breadsticks which is just like a cheese pizza with no sauce for $2.99. Love it!

Me too, I have also been hungry for some home-made chili today, it is raining here in Mississippi and very dreary looking. I always love chili on days like that.

Don't you have any take and bake pizza places like Papa Murphy's?????
There pizza is pretty good!!!
But a Pizza Uno is coming to this area and will be open in March-I buy their frozen pizza's all the time.
Living in WI-at one grocery store they must carry over 30 brands of frozen pizza-three hugh aisles of different kinds of pizza!!
On the other hand living in a rural area-no such thing as delivery!! The closest pizza place must be 15 miles away!!

Papa Murphy's has the best deal! Their pizzas taste good and they are dirt cheap. Hubby can have his everything on it pizza, and I can get Hawaiin or plain cheese if I want it.

Another good deal if you have Xtreme Pizza by you they have a deal where you buy one get one free on Tuesdays or Wednesdays (if you pick it up). They also have really cool combinations as well as the standard plain jane toppings.

That's why I cook all our meals and rarely go out. I feel my money needs to be spent in better ways. I really can't justify spending money on takeout - maybe I'm just cheap but I also think the food prepared at home is better quality, not filled with additives and fats and is probably the reason we eat well but are not overweight.

Little Cesar's "Hot and Ready" has pizzas you can just walk in and pick up for $5 a piece! They're deliscious and always fresh- you can add breadsticks to that for only a dollar or two more- it's definitely cheaper to pick it up than have it delivered / Also- Freschetta frozen pizzas taste better than most of the real stuff and they're only about $5 they're soooooooooooo good!!!
