Earls n' Pizza n' Wings-Macleod Trail

Ok someone gave me a gift certificate fo Earls, otherwise it's not a place I would have tried as I envisioned it as an overpriced roadhouse/sports bar. Looked like that when we walked in ,complete with young hotties as servers.

Ordered hot wings and a Margarita pizza. They took a long time so the manager stopped by and explained that they have reformulated the pizza recipes, including crust-now made by hand-and our first one wasn't up to his expectations. He comp'd us a plate of calamari while we waited. The calamari wer uninspiring.

The pizza and wings arrived. The Margarita was superb. Thin crispy chewy crust, not too much cheese, fresh basil chiffonade and absolutely the best San Marzano's I've ever tasted. The tomatoes really made the pizza-I should have asked him the brand. Any way the manager returned for our opinions and to tell us that he isn't yet fully satisfied with the crust, he thinks they can get it a bit crisper on bottom-and maybe he could, however I would certainly not complain with the crispness of the one we received.

The wings, well if you've never been to the Anchor Bar for the original Buffalo wings, try Earl's hot, they are true to the original, to me the epitome of what hot wings should be.

I will now go back to this Earls and try othe menu items since the manager really cared and displayed a good knowledge of the food d being made at the restaurant.
