    And that campaign was largely correct, in my experience

    They're a lot better now, at least from what I've tasted (I never order chain pizza myself, so it's a rare thing)

    Yeah Dominos totally wins the "most improved" award

    They just still aren't amazing thats all

    Look their ads might be amazing but their pizza is still only good and still most appropriate for when you're half in the bag

    Oh man...

    We definitely ordered some of those promotional pizzas while playing pathfinder in Japan and dicked around with that dumb app.

    God that brings back some memories.

    Miku's popularity in Japan really is something else.

    Well, I guess it's pretty similar to say Mickey Mouse in the states, if Disney was more liberal in licensing their stuff out for promotions.

    She's like, the mascot for one of the big 7-11 style chains out there, for example, so whatever is on sale has her little chibi head next to it advertising the sale.

    Everybody at Uchicago was obsessed with Giordano's. If people found out somebody hadn't eaten it before, they'd literally order a pizza to make the person try it.

    Really? When I was there pizza orders seemed fairly evenly split between Giordano's, Edwardo's and Pizza Capri.

    My favorite of the big name pizza places in Chicago is Lou Malnati's.

    Hawaiian pizza is good but put some onions and peppers and mmmm so tasty.

    Also I'm pretty egalitarian when it comes to pizza types. Though Hawaiian deep-dish style would probably not work.

    I've not had chain pizza in ages, since there are so many local joints nearby. But one of them (my fav, natch) doesn't deliver to my new place but another more distant place does. Madness! Mind you they're really good their wings are just hella expensive.

    Speaking of, how do people feel about pairing wings with pizza over, say, breadsticks? I personally prefer wings.

    this is the biggest thing I was not prepared for when visiting Japan

    7-11's everywhere

    At least in my dorm, yeah. (I personally am not a fan.) It was almost as big as Harold's Chicken.

    Nothing will ever be as big as Harold's at the U of C. Maravillas might come close for some, though i'm not sure why. I do a yearly fantasy baseball league that's almost all former UChicago guys, and part of the decision process for where to hold the draft each year is proximity to a Harold's so we can pick up a huge order...

    I commuted, and most of my friends were also commuters, with cars, so we ate outside of Hyde Park a lot. Chinatown at least once a week, better Mexican food at places like Los Comales or mom and pop joints, bbq from places like Barbara Ann's instead of Ribs and Bibs.

    For the pizza though, it really was more split up overall. I did a year on the Student Government Finance Committee, which mostly consisted of reviewing budgets for student organization events and then approving disbursement of student activity fee dollars to pay for those events. We used to have to make groups order pizza from Giordano's or Edwardo's because Pizza Capri was more expensive and the budget was tight that year.

    I dig wings. I'm also not made of money so I can't afford them typically.
