Conveyer Belt That makes this ex NY'ers ears hurt!!!

Just don't get Pizza. Yes, I've had NY Pizza in NY (and other places like Philly and Chi). It's not BBQ, it isn't fried chicken, it sure isn't shrimp and grits...I just don't get it..gooey, greasy and messy... snore...

Step-son worked at Donotos in Reynoldsburg. It was better than Dominos but maybe just slightly above most others. They produced the first pizza with pineapple on top that I had ever eaten. Nice to have them in the Charlotte area, but I can only give them a grade of B+ compared to other local pizza places.

Columbus Ohio has the worst pizza out of any major city in the united states (charlotte Pizza is MUCH better) and Donatos is the flagship style of Columbus Pizza (cracker crust junk). However Ohio pizza is not all that bad - consider Youngstown Ohio, a melting pot of Italian culture, and the pizza there is outstanding. Much more Sicilian sytle than NY style, but very good.

I had Donatos yesterday and it was not to bad. I am not sure what kind of sausage they use but it has a zing to it. I like my pizza with alot of sauce which I had trouble in tasting. I like how they slice the pizza into strips kinda like how bread strips are cut for easy managability and less mess and Im not sure what they sprinkle on top of it Im assuming Oregano.

It did not hit the top of my list but I am willing to give them another try.

That's the way Buffalo style pizza is. It's thicker than NYC pizza, but thinner than Chicago and Sicilian (though most places offer Sicilian) and I really like the thicker dough. Most NYC pizza to me is just too thin and not filling enough (and yes I've had NYC pizza in NYC).

Yep, because every family in the country gets together on Friday nights and calls up their local shrimp and grits restaurant for takeout. Shrinmp n grits is only predominant in one area of the country for a reason...nobody else likes it.

PLENTY of people ADORE shrimp and grits Groove! I've venture to say the only people who don't really love it are people who haven't tried it (it does sound like a weird combination!). In fact, I would take shrimp and grits over any kind of pizza - Ohio, Chicago or New York - any day
