I had take out at the new Pepes on Saturday night

Ok...I will be objective...The new Pepes in Manchester on Saturday.

I called for take out at 5:45 and was told my pizza would be ready at was 9:15 but who is counting after 3 hours...apparently they only take 3 pizzas every fifteen minutes for takeout...

I apreciate the casual slicing technique but the poor girl handling my pie looked like she had never cut a pizza before...and they need to get some bigger pizza wheels.

The pizza...which is what it is all about...

Way too much cheese...truned the dough gooey...did not spread out and allow the pie to cook.
Dough was salty...or it might have been the crust..but definitely heavy handed.

I think the best descriotion by my friends was..."This isn;t what Pepes makes in New haven...I had to agree.

So...probably still getting their feet wet...

Petty stuff I know...but had to add...

I expected a little more atmoshphere...what works in New Haven and is 80 years old just looks cold and sparce in a prefab mall building...

It will be interesting to see if the folks in the noirth accept the charred edges and looong waits...alot of evil looking people line to speak of...
