In what universe is Pizza Hut pizza considered good??

Seriously...

...?

Just from those photos, I can tell that the pizza is barfworthy.

Guys, c'mon...we are from NJ. Pizza is something that we do GOOD. Have pride in that. Please do not support corporate Cici's.

Wouldn't you rather have an authentic slice from a family-owned business? Sheesh, drive 5 minutes west to Rutherford and take your pick.

I can maybe, *maybe* understand one of these garbage chains opening in like, Cumberland County, or somewhere down there. But BERGEN COUNTY?

As openheads has said...the world has changed.

I, for one, am saddened.

On a side note...what are the odds that anybody "dining" in CiCi's will be Italian?

Its not that bad. That I would not even try. I tried Cici's here because you can't ruin Salad and Breadsticks, and the Desert Pizza was ok.
The Pizza? Well that's another story-Bad.
I rather get a good slice at Joeys. Besides I get entertainment there. Its owned by a Brooklyn Family that fights in Italian. LOL, I know some of the words.

Hmmm...I wonder what kind of market research is being put out there about Route 17. Think about it, within the last 18 months 24 Hour Fitness, Sonic's and Cici's have all opened on Route 17 all within what like 5 miles of each other? All of these are major national chains that did not have any presence in the NYC Metro area and they all chose, relatively, the same location for their first branch in our area. I haven't been to Cici's but we all remember the traffic and cops in front of Sonic's those first few months and 24 Hour Fitness is always packed. Pretty interesting...

The adult buffet price here in my Georgia town is $3.99. The customer base is easily 80% Mexican. I went there a few times on a Saturday. No tables available, so we left. That was months ago and we won't be back. Too noisy and too low quality.

BTW, the Sonic on our town closed about 6 months ago.

Never ate at Cici's and from what some of you are saying I don't think I want to but yet my cousin down in Florida thinks Cici's is good......different strokes for different folks.
