Really Love IT – Just moved into the area and was upset that we had to find another great place to order pizza. Pizza Hut, Dominos, Papa Johns, etc are to commerical and overated.
We tried MaMas because they delivered to us and we weren't in the mood to go out to eat. Everything that we have ordered from there has been excellent. We are working down the menu and and everything has been cooked deliciously.
We would recomment this Pizza place to anyone, and so far we have!
better than EVERYONE – My family got pizza from Pappa Johns, Pizza Hut, Domino's, No Name Pizza, and Lawnton Court Pizza, all at once. (Mom was out of town)
I put together a blind test..Even I did not know which slice was from where, and yes coupons were used though the locals had none at the time. That would be Mama's, Lawnton Court and No Name. All were simple cheese, no other toppings. This was done for parity, simplicity, and focus.
Voting was in favor of Mama's by far and away. All testers rated it number one, and in discussion, by a very wide margin. The common remarks were GREAT crust and perfect mix of ingredients.
No Name came in second, being more doughy to being a bit undercooked. Nobody failed to finish a slice however and the reception was warm! Another good combination of ingredients.
Pizza Hut's Hand tossed is the most like local pizza. the testers all agreed that their regular pizzas had more grease, too much, off-putting, in fact. But the hand tossed is much much better in this regard. It finished a close third.
The rest of the pack finished far behind. Pappa Jons came in next. If their ingredients are fresh, the freshness is not a factor. Domino's was judged to be
mediocre and smaller (we ordered large each time) than expected. Lawnton Court was a big disappointment. Salty, undercooked and expensive we hoped from better from the locals but did not get it. Several week later, thinking we had been the unintended victim of a mishap of some sort, I tried again. Alas, Lawnton proved their consistency.
Our family will be Mama's people for as long as it lasts.
If we travel (and we do) Mama's is always compared to the locals. Chicago, New Jersey, New Hampshire, Albuquerque and (OMG) New York City have not met the Mama's standard. Go. Eat. Mama's is worth it.
User review by jeffreyshaffer – Small Pizza shop- but you get quick service and the pizza is the best for miles, stromboli is also very good. If you want a nice small town shop this is it.
