    Hi,

    I am hog tying my family to Wells Brothers for pizza tonight. Yes, the $20 large single-topping pizza, pitcher of pop and garlic bread deal.

    I plan to order the salad, too. They have a base price for the salad, then $x per person. It always seems to be a big salad, do people really add more servings to the salad. I ask now to avoid the eye roll from someone at the table.

    Regards,

    Happy Birthday!

    Hi,

    We did order the Tuesday special: one large single ingredient pizza (We added more: sausage, pepperoni, mushroom, onion and pepper), garlic bread and pitcher of pop with one refill (or several small beers or a bottle of wine). Plus Buffalo wings, their pizza of the month (Mediterranean with feta, artichoke, tomato, olives, feta and a Balsamic drizzle), and their antipasto salad for four (we were five).

    I remember the antipasto salad for two was big, but doubled up it was really, really big. Nobody had less than two servings and still half came home with us.

    To my delight, my family liked it enough they agreed they could be easily persuaded to return. I live with practical people who consider an 80 mile round trip for pizza a bit much. Now they have experienced how wonderful cracker thin crust pizza can be, they are willing to take the dive again. Of course, only time will tell.

    Regards,

    The Wednesday 1 or 2 topping pizza has gone from $10 to $12.
    The other $20 Specials remain the same.

The crust is ultra thin & crispy, and the sauce, as Fishie notes is good, but I did like the toppings, one especially to to note was mushrooms, at Zaffiro's they are canned but at Wells Bros they are fresh.

    Mushrooms were canned in my latest visit to Wells Brothers on Saturday. Big disappointment. Everything else was excellent.
    I did absolutely nothing and it was everything I thought it could be.

    I haven't been to Well's Bros in years. I prefer Mike and Angelo's on HWY 20 in Mt Pleasant. I always ask for a crispy crust. Bud, have you ever tried Mike and Angelo's? It's been our Racine go to and carry out Pizza for over 30 years. The other pizza place in Racine is Nonna Wells, a relative of Well's Bros. I like Wells Bros over Nonna Well's and Mike and Angelo's is my favorite.

    I have not, but did note that you are a fan, the fact that Mrs Willie had never been to Wells Brothers sealed the deal to take her there. We visited the SC Johnson HQ designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, had Wells Brothers, then were intending to go to Wingspread but ran out of time, we'll be up to see Wingspread and will visit Mike & Angelo's

    Have not tried Mike & Angelos.
    Once I found the crispy thin crust Basil Pizza at Well’s I was hooked.
    The $20 Specials and the then $10 Pizza (Now $12) on Wednesday along with $1 cans of Hamm’s reinforced my habit.
    BTW Wingspread is not be missed. Climb the observation stairway.

    I've had Mike and Angelo's once. I do remember preferring Wells Brothers. What about the pizza joint attached to the chocolate store - Derango The Pizza King? How's that? It looked pretty good when I was getting some chocolate. In my heyday I would have gotten a pizza too.

    From Wells Brothers facebook page:
    It has been brought to our attention that rumor around town is Wells Brothers is closing. These rumors are NOT true!

    Maybe people are confused because our dining room is closed (until we can go 100%), or because we are running limited carry out hours. Whatever the reason, we are here to tell you WE ARE NOT CLOSING!

    Thank you to all of our customers who have continued to support us during these difficult times. We appreciate your support and hope to see you all soon!

    This week only brought back by popular acclaim,
    Lasagna Pizza!!!
    Double Dekker with thin crust and lasagna noodles separating the two layers with
    sausage on the bottom and basil on the top.
    The extra large is almost $30 but sufficient for us for two meals.
    A similar pizza is offered on Valentine's Day but in the shape of a heart.
    You can see the pizza in the Wells Facebook page.

    Do you think a Wells Brother's Pizza travels well?

    "Traveling wel..." is such a subjective term, but there is a way to improve your "buy now and eat later" Wells Brothers experience: Put the the pizza(s) in your car in a single layer (do NOT stack them) and tear a hole in the paper wrapping to let the steam escape while driving home. This helps to prevent the dreaded "Soggy Crust".

    CAUTION: Plan on some extra drive-time (and pizza) , due to the frequent stops required to "have just a small piece" while succumbing to the lure of the "pizza aroma" that will fill your vehicle.

    We are 20 min away at the most but the best way to enjoy Well's thin crust is just out of the oven,
    So much in fact that my standing order is that the pizza is brought to us immediately after coming out of the oven, A warm pizza is returned.
    That said at present we don't dine in anywhere so reheat it is in our oven.
    The Lasagna pizza being more akin to a deep dish does travel well as I suspect, the currently offered 'bambino' will travel but we just haven't got around to ordering the bambino yet for take out.

    Good strategy which I employ when there are two of us at some stops.
    While on the way to Road America via Chesters in Plymouth, the fries always get eaten before we reach the Track!
    For Well's if you come from Illinois and do not want to dine in, eat in the car!
