OK I live in Niles and we decided to check it out. It was downright creepy. There were about 10 tables filled and so seating was not a problem. There was this "biker"-looking dude at the register who acted like he was doing me a favor by taking my order. I ordered a large cheese and sausage, an order of onion rings and a pitcher of pop. The guy asks me if I wanted to pay with cash or charge, so I say charge. Then he asks me if I wanted to pay for the pop too. I'm like "uh yeah". So he gives me two tickets and tells me to get my pop at the bar. So I shuffle 10 steps to the left and I'm at the bar. So I stand there for about 5 minutes and there comes the same guy to get my drink! So he hands me the pitcher and rings up 4.25 on the register. So, confused as I was, I thought maybe he didn't charge me. So I say, "I guess I'll pay for the pop with cash." He looks at me and says, "you already paid for it!" So I say, "well why the heck were you ringing it up again?" No answer.
So I head back to our table where Hubby and Toddler are waiting for me. Then they call for the oinion rings so Hubby goes to get them.
The coating was pretty good but the onions inside were raw! That was soooo nasty. I wound up pulling out the onion and just eating the breading.
So now they call our # and Hubby goes up to fetch it. I put a slice on the huge, spacious, high- quality paper plates that they give and I started trying to cut it for Toddler, but the high quality knife was just twisting instead. So I had to rip it up for her.
The grease had soaked through the plate rendering it useless. Hubby and I decide to just eat over the pan. I could see grease dripping off of the pizza. There was no flavor to it. It was like eating pizza with a cold. The bottom of the crust had a nice consistency, but the flavor was not good. It tasted like stale beer.
We definately won't be back. Everyone who loves this place must only love the nostalgia from their youth because as someone who has never been, it was nasty. It was also pricey. I think a Jewel Thin-n-crispy is a better product.
The clown is down!
