Or at least I was always afraid of that 'za in the '80s.
A the only place that was open past 9PM when I was in high school, we would hang out at the one on Skokie Blvd, eat pizza that we considered truly awful while ridiculing ourselves for eating it.
Humor included pizza served so piping hot that it would melt the plastic forks and knives. We were juvenile, what can I say. The same era included conspicuous consumption of gasoline to maximize coverate of McDonalds Monopoly cards in a given evening.

Some of the readers may not know that Barnaby's was once a chain and at some point individual restaurants were sold, and to the best of my knowledge are all now individually owned. The two existing locations I have been to are the one in Arlington Heights and the one in Northbrook. The NB location is significantly superior in many respects -- especially better pizza and better crust. I think the crust has a little cornmeal in it. For some reason when the units separated they either had or developed separate recipes for the pizza crust.

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
