Pizza in Athens, GA

I've been eating out a lot lately, it seems.

Tried Johnny's Pizza today, the one on the Eastside. There's two, evidently, the other over near Lowe's/Home Despot/Wal-Mart on 316.

We're not talking dog food here, but this stuff ain't so good. It's almost a black hole of flavor, mostly just salty and uninspired. Sysco food. My buddy asked for Ranch dressing to dip his crusts in ( I know, I know), and it came in a little half-and-half-style cup, all sealed up with the little foil peel-back top. It tasted only tangentially like Ranch dressing. The servers were eating pizza at the service/take-out counter and chewing as they walked up to your table, swallowing their cud mere milliseconds before asking you how your food is. That's just vile. I'm surprised I didn't walk out without paying, but I was in a very good mood today.

Gonna stick with Transmet and Little Italy for my pizza pie, I guess.

Or make it at home.
