I could be wrong, most places that have New York style pizzas do not have a crispy crust as you're supposed to fold it.

Sorry, the only thing they have there is potatoes. Or potatos.

Remember the movie Forrest Gump? Remember Bubba Shrimp? Think Bubba Potato.

Anyone who has been to Bayou Le Batre realizes that even they had/have more than Bubba Gump shrimp going for it...and so do we!

The crust was undercooked and not crispy. The toppings were acceptable though nothing special. The sauce was very good and hearty, with chunks of tomato throughout, though I wish there had been more of it on the pizza. We found bits of cardboard (yes, really) in the crust. The toppings were very average, and the list of available toppings was somewhat disappointing in its lack of variety or availability of higher-end ingredients, though it does include all of the standards.

We went after lunch to try to miss the rush, and the service was still painfully slow. With only a couple other tables occupied at the time, it took nearly 45 minutes from when we arrived to get our pizza. I could understand this for a legitimate Chicago-style pizza, but for a thin-crusted single layer pizza this is wholly unacceptable.

In addition, they initially got our order wrong and brought us bread sticks rather than cheese sticks/fried mozarella, which incidentally was tasty. It's sad when mozzarella sticks are the highlight of your meal at a pizza restaurant. It was a mozzarella patty that had been breaded rather than individual sticks, but the breading and included sauce for dipping were great.

All together our meal rang up to just under $30. This was for a medium specialty pizza, mozzarella sticks, and two drinks.

Overall, I would describe the pizza and experience as a Little Caesar's $5 pizza with better sauce and worse service. Definitely not worth the cost to us - I doubt I'll be back.
A person's preference in pizza is as varied as there are people. That said, I'm sorry it wasn't your cup o' tea, j_gets.

We did notice on our last trip (on a Sat. night) that the mgmt. and staff seemed very overwhelmed by the large crowds they have amassed. I hope they can remedy that in the near future. I don't mind waiting for a good meal (and it was, to us), but several groups walked out after hearing about a 30+ minute wait.

I'm a fan of all types of pizza: Chicago stuffed, N.Y. w/the bendable crust (as Lucy's is), cracker crust (grew up on that in the midwest), and for us (DW & I), Lucy's is still the best in town. We prefer it to any of the chains in the area, and more so than the do-it-yourself type places.

I still say, if you haven't tried it, please do try it. You might be surprised, or you might not like it. That's up to you (well, and I guess to an extent, to them).

The Bambino placed opened up on Monday. It was super-busy and it took a while to get your order but it was delicious. Now we need one in Salt Lake City where I live.

What's a bambino? I saw a description and it sounds just like a Hot Pocket. Is that about right?

Some foodie news in IF:

Buffalo Wild Wings, recently opened in Twin, have said they want to open in Poky and IF. This is a popular sports bar with spicy wings and sandwiches. The old Iggy's might be a good spot, but they tend to like to build from the ground up, so we shall see.

Just tonight I heard Chick-Fillet wants to open in the old Fazio's building in IF. This chain is generally well-regarded with quality items.

So get ready for some new food options in IF!

Hi pw72. I saw that same info. More choice is always good.

And the former sports bar on Channing will now have the name and recipes of an Italian restaurant that use to be in Poky. However, the $250K remodeling was Idaho Falls remodeling. Sounds like it could be interesting.
