Roman Rooster's in Priceville. Get off I-65 South and turn left (or east) on Alabama 67. The restaurant is about a half-mile or so on the left. Very good pizza. Not a fancy place, though. They bring you a paper plate to put your piece of pizza on.

They also have a location in Decatur on the Beltline. Soft drinks only, no beer (both locations).

Thanks for asking Eddie, but I have to confess I've been to none of them.

I have been to the 'Shroom in Auburn, Chattanooga, and Tuscaloosa. And Atlanta, I think. The pizza is OK.

I used to think Everybody's in Atlanta was the top of the heap, but I don't think they're so special anymore.

My dad served the first pizza (to my knowledge) in Decatur. He arrived in 1961 to manage the Bowline Drive-In Theatre, and added pizza to the concession stand offerings. The crust was frozen! The sauce came in a big can, and the cheese was in a plastic bag. You had a choice: cheese, pepperoni, or hamburger. And it wasn't just pizza - it was "pizza pie." About 1963, Mr. Armando de Quesado and his family arrived. They were Cuban refugees. Mr. de Quesado set up a restaurant, Mando's (there was one in Huntsville, too, but I don't know if he owned it or was a franchisee), that served pizza that was virtually identical to the drive-in version.

Thanks for the info Southlander. So is Roman Rooster's better than Mushy?

If so, I'm going to add it to my list of places to sample.

Thanks again.

I would have to say yes.
But remember - no beer served.

I give a BIG thumbs up to the restaurant in the Museum of Art building. I think it is called Pane Vino. The ingredients are all very fresh and you can sit on the lake while dining and enjoying a cocktail. Their Tiramisu is great, as is their Affogato. If you order one of their salads, which I highly recommend, make sure you split it with another person...unles it will be your whole meal.

Default Papa Murphy's

I'm resurrecting the dead Pizza thread for this.

Has anyone tried Papa Murphy's (Madison in the Publix shopping center on Hwy 72, two doors down from Casa Blanca). It's a take and bake chain - they make it there in front of you and you take it home and bake it yourself. We got their $5.99 pepperoni pizza special ($5 off regular price) last night to try it out for the first time.

The crust was nice and crispy, but it was the greasiest pizza I've had in a very long time.I didn't think that the taste was a whole let better than a frozen pizza. I don't think I'd even spend the $6 again on a pizza from there, much less more at regular price. One person told me that they never have grease problems, but they never get meat on their pizza. I don't know if the pepperoni was bad or if it's just this location.

Jake

Thanks Jake. I wasn't planning on trying it, despite the many coupons I've gotten. I'm still holding out hope that Tortora's will make a move to East Limestone in 2010 and I'll be happy as a lark.
