Sbarro's entered bankruptcy in 2014. They came out of it in 2015 (I think) after two restructurings and a change in ownership. The original plans were to open stand alone stores, but that plan died in 2015 with the second restructuring. Sbarro's has never really come back from their bankruptcy, or from the fact that food courts in malls are suffering from less traffic.

Italians know it is garbage. Other nationalities don’t know any better. My non Italian wife thinks Olive Garden is the best. That said, she and her family have no problem with eating Ragu and do not like my family recipe sauce.

Anyway, Sbarros is ok. Not authentic and not great. Ripoff at $4 a slice here in NY. I never get the pizzza. I only get the spaghetti.

It'll do in a pinch in a mall or airport. No one gets all that excited about Sbarro's. A lot of undifferentiated chain restaurants are struggling. See Chili's, Applebee's, Red Robin.
