It was way back in 2012 when I talked about the revamped offerings at Chuck E. Cheese. You can read that old stuff here.
As a kid I loved Chuck’s pizza. (Yeah yeah yeah…I have heard all my life how much it sucked…but I liked it…so let’s continue)
When they revamped in 2012 I was actually impressed. It tasted even better than the original….artisan, even. Admittedly I only tried the pizza because I figured they wouldn’t DARE mess with their kick-ass “Italian Breadsticks”.
Sigh…and of course that means they screwed with the breadsticks. On my most recent visit I got pizza and the ‘stix. What I got is up and to the left. If you are thinking it looks like CRAZY BREAD from Little Caesar’s you are thinking the same thing I was. They were doughy and not even close to the originals. I am not happy.
But at least there is the new pizza……
And here we go…I think they have changed their pizza again. Gone are the slight char-marks and the cheese blend. The zesty sauce and the pepperoni with a kick. What I got here was a dry crusted pie. That almost seemed like a defrosted dough-disk topped with some slightly tomato-y sauce and your basic cheese and pepperoni. A far cry from the happy-surprise that was the pizza back in 2012.
Will it be another three years before I set foot in a CEC again???
