@chai2,
Good lord. I had to go to their webpage just to see it....

It's like a timewarp to GeoCities.

Regardless of their (non-existent) web design skillz, they do make a good pie.

Go try a Savage deep dish (whole wheat crust).

drew dad, you probably eat your pizza with a knife and fork.

It's definitely preferable to choking down cardboard topped with a squirt of ketchup and some Cheez Whiz.

@DrewDad,
Aha!

I was correct.

Eating pizza with a knife and fork is a do not pass go, proceed straight to hades.

Proper pizza isn't made with catsup or cheeze whizz.

But it does have a crust one folds into an object to point at one's mouth.

Nothing funnier than someone from the midwest trying to eat a new york style pizza without folding it.

I’ve only found one good pizza place here in St. Pete and that is Astra Pizza. It’s awesome! And they deliver.

We ordered a pizza in this one restaurant a couple weeks ago and it tasted like they took it out of the freezer and put it in a microwave, I sent it back!

@Rockhead,
Moondoggy's, really?

Moondoggy was a major Abuzz personage, I don't think he ever made it to A2K. Swell fella.

Anyway, I've never been there. Not sure if the little strip mall is still there either, the unofficial logo of OSU is a crane -- construction happening allllll the time. That whole area has changed a lot even just since we moved here less than 8 years ago.

I'm not the one to ask in general though, we eat out really rarely and then pizza is a fraction of that.

Just Googled it, didn't come up with anything....

@sozobe,
it was a little joint at the end on the west side of the street. I don't remember the name of the street, but it has some run down hotels a coin laundry (very interestin clientele) and a breakfast joint, mebbe Bob Evans. and a drive thru liquor store across the street.

it was NW of the university.

if I get time later, maybe I will play with google maps...

he had just started it up. woulda been 2004...

@Rockhead,
Oh do you mean Lennox? That's a medium-sized strip mall. Has a Target, Old Navy, etc.

There's a Bob Evans near there, not sure about the coin-operated laundry. Oh unless you mean King St., I think they have a liquor store. No Moondoggy's I'm aware of though.

Anyway, curious what you come up with.

You were here in 2004? Or this is just someone you know?

@sozobe,
I used to be there every summer for the Goodguy's nationals.

in fact I remember stopping in 2005 and he was still there...

he remembered me, too.

I had given him a free t-shirt.

King St sounds right, but after the storm gets done here, I will go verify...

Didn't stay long, though. I think he was pretty wrapped up in a journalism degree program.

@chai2,
In my opinion, one should say, "I finally found good Neapolitan (round) pizza in Austin!" More than one New Yorker will only order Sicilian (square) pizza, since it is thicker, and one can ask for a "corner slice" where two sides have crust. Sicilian pizza is a meal in itself, in my opinion. Outside of Philly, NYC, and God knows where else, I would not think Sicilian pizza is known. I could be wrong.
