There are a few Papa John's that I know of in Lower Manhattan, on the UES, etc. but I have never ordered from them. Some of the locations have late night delivery, to 1 or 2, which would help their business in the delivery zone, so one would not have to venture out, or wait for another place, like a late-night/24-hour deli to deliver.

I would assume Domino's also has late-night hours. I do know the 89th Street location has been the subject of a picket line with respect to alleged labor violations. Since most orders are by phone and Internet, for delivery, the scope of the picket might not have the same impact as it would in a restaurant dependent upon diners entering/exiting.

With such chains, much depends upon the franchisees, with respect to the quality of the individual outlet. Some are very good, whereas others might tend to be more mediocre, something I find holds true for many franchised restaurant concepts.

Must suck to live in a neighborhood where Papa Johns is better than a 'regular' pizza joint.

I never understood this either. Who in their right mind would eat at Pizza Hut?

You must not be keeping up on recent events involving Borders....

Domino's and Papa John's continue to thrive the same way Ford and Toyota continue to thrive even though there are boutique manufacturers out there making far more interesting cars: familiarity, accessibility, and lower prices through higher volume and economies of scale.

And for all the romanticizing of "mom-and-pop" pizza joints, let's face it, a whole lot of 'em churn out product that rivals Domino's in blandness but costs a lot more.

Default the perversion of pizza

There is nothing familiar or or accessible about Papa John's or Domino's here in New York. I know that the rest of the US is a different story.

These pizza mutations did not even arrive here to the mid 1990's. For me a Domino's pizza is like an old friend that went away for a while and returned as a freak. It still may be a familiar friend but man he looks, smells and act really bizarre after a few years ruining himself with drugs or some perverted sex life.

For us Domino's and Papa Johns is a perversion of what pizza should be. I know Domino's is pizza and it's not horrific but it could never be good enough for a true local that grew up here. In working class five boroughs were we enjoyed some of the best pizza in the world.
