I might be 5 pages late (not reading the whole thread), but on the topic of pizza...

Anyone ever have pizza from Pleasant Cafe on Washington Street in Roslindale, my mom grew up a few houses behind there and I have been getting their pizza for all 21 years I have been on this earth. Literally, the best pizza I've ever had.

On another note, I personally think Dominoes has significantly stepped uo their game in the last few years - but it is still Dominoes.

Carry on...

Pizza for me
1. Cape Cod Cafe Brockton, MA
2. Lynnwood Cafe Randolph, MA
3. Town Spa Stoughton, MA

I don't leave southeastern MA or at least the metro south area much.

Everyone should be ashamed for mentioning Town Spa's pizza. It's the most overhyped average bar pizza there is. It's seriously a bigger version of a frozen Celeste.

It's ok, but it's just ok. I think I would honestly prefer any one of the local chain restaurants over Town Spa. I have never understood all the love this place gets. Mind boggling really.

They sell these frozen right? I think I bought one from a specialty gourmet store in Boston and it tasted like a Totino's Party Pizza

Subs = cold sandwiches

Grinders = Toasted sandwiches with marinara sauce

When I lived in Boston... I liked Il Mondo, and Penguin on Mission hill.. .and Emmas pizza near Kendall.

I do have a complaint about eastern, ma pizza.. no one makes a party pizza! You have an event at your house and its ****ing expensive!

I Western, MA every pizza place had a party pizza. It was square, and it had 2 boxes taped together.

Have you ever gone to Tony's Place in West Roxbury? I always thought they were the best local option when I lived in that area...

I havent. The Pleasant has not changed anything - menu, interior, or exterior - in probably 60 years. Its really the only place to go to around there as I am not really "in the area", I'm a little further south in Westwood so if I'm venturing into West Roxbury/Roslindale for pizza, The Pleasant it is.

Westwood? I used to love Abbodanza in Norwood center, but I heard it closed down recently.

Taking selfies with an iPhone is one thing, but full nudes in an Apple Store? Unacceptable, no matter how tasteful...

Ok... my phone got wacky. It's the second time now, this time w/ a replacement phone. Anytime you're listening to music, the volume just cuts out, and you have to hit play again, and again, and again. B/c it's a replacement for failed phone, the warranty was only good for one year from the original purchase. Ok, I get it, so I'm on the hook for $$$, fine. But I have an upgrade in a month, great, I get it. I can pay a lil more for the upgrade great, go get it. SOLD!!

It takes 15 20 mins for them to ascertain my phone is broken, my plan, etc, etc etc. They explain the process, they get a new phone, put my data in, I plug it in at home, it's syncs w/ all the info from my last back up. 30 mins goes by. I just want a new phone that I'm just going to plug into my computer, and go on w/ my life. Great. But....NO!

Sir, would you like an appointment at 6pm or is between 8 and 9 better for you?

Whaaaa huh? Appointment???

Yes we don't have any appointments available right now. (Meanwhile iphone apple employee to customer ratio is easily 2 to 1.)

Why cant I just get a phone NOW? I didn't need an "appointment" any other time I bought, or had a phone replaced, or when I even bought my first iphone, or Ipad.

Sorry, sir, our next apt is at 6...blah blah....I tried to reason w/ them. It's a phone. I'm not getting oil changed, getting a haircut, tooth filled. This 22 year old cat runs out of answers. Shaggy from Scooby doo to the rescue.

Same rap, you need an appointment, blah blah blah. I explain to shaggy I work fulltime, have 3 kids, etc etc. I apologize to the people I see that look like they're waiting for help. They're fully gracious in return, while also curious, one woman was in full agreement, and now in fear she will need an "appointment" to actually accomplish her phone needs. I'm all done trying to comprehend why I waited a half hour to find out I needed to make an apt to come back...and get a phone. It's a ****in phone we're talking a/b here.

I offer to just pay full price for a NEW phone. Nope, b/c of my plan, my wife and others on the plan, etc etc etc. I still have to make an appt. I said, are you trying to sell me a phone by another manufacturer? The way I learned a/b business we call this a LOST SALE. You're throwing money on the floor. Now Shaggy's answers and reasonable excuses for why I cannot walk out of the store w/ a new phone are fully exhausted. Meanwhile everyone in earshot is laughing. At least one iphone employee is nodding in agreement behind Shag that my disappointment is valid. As the process was just explained and enumerated in detail as being easy as pie. But, other Iphone employees rallying around Shaggy for moral support.

I never raised my voice, pulse never elevated, but, I'm in the damn store now. I don't want to come back at 8pm, nor do I feel I should have to. I try and reason w/ Shag one more time. He's gets snippy. I suck it up, try one last time to reason and say - look dude, I was your age once, I know it's hard to understand. I had a job where I dealt w/ people, it's hell, I'm not trying to make life hard, etc. I wasn't aware of the "appointment policy", but I'm here now. I'm a little bit older than you, it would be very inconvenient to come back, 3 kids, deadlines, ect, and that's the time of night I get to spend time w/ my family. This is the time I have today to deal w/ my iphone problems. He goes on a diatribe a/b how he has a life, too. Don't be so arrogant.....

Yeah? Now I'm just done. Add this kid has pipe cleaners for arms, and looks like he cuts his own hair. Told him snorting bathsalts and striking out w/ the nerdy girl who picked her nose in HS doesn't count. He asked me to leave w/ lip quivering, and I replied laughing - K there, Shag. As if I could actually accomplish anything in a PHONE STORE, like actually buying a ****ing TELEPHONE, if I remained any longer. Meanwhile, where were the people that HAD appointments thus causing me to have to return 4 hours later? Shag just looks down at his feet hopelessly.

I wished all the fellow civilians in the store good luck, at least one other professional looking person walked out behind me laughing hysterically, completely speechless by what she just witnessed. Assured me I wasn't unreasonable, while shrugging her shoulders.

Last iphone. I've never heard of anything so stupid. It's a phone, not a Porsche, or BMW, or even a laptop, or a dog in need of grooming. It's like you're going to a 5 star restaurant to buy a phone, and need reservations despite 50 waiters standing there w/ thumb up ass looking at empty tables.

So, I just called...apt still open at 8! Coming in HOT!!

Christ.

Neely08.... oh my. LOL

Carmine's in Georgia is good for pizza and Italian. First time I ever had pineapple on a pizza and it was gone before the pepperoni pizza that everyone at the house actually wanted.
