Big Apple PizzaPosted: October 19, 2006 | Author: marga | Filed under: Restaurants | Leave a comment »
I don’t know if it was the name or the big apple in the flyer but I’ve been ordering food from Big Apple Pizza thinking that it was Red Apple Pizza. Big Apple Pizza is a small chain located on MacArthur Blvd. (not that you would know that from their flyer) that has only recently started sending me flyers.
The first time I ordered I got their fish and chips ($17 for a 10 piece meal). The fish was not coated on a traditional beer batter, but instead had some sort of gritty coating that was neither flavorful or good to eat. The very thin stripes tasted stale and it was clear that the fish had been bought frozen and then dumped into the deep fryer (or it might have been the microwave). It had a dark brown appearance and did not look at all like the picture in the flyer.
The meal came with fries, soda and bread. The fries were also soggy and soft, the type of fries you get at a school cafeteria. Frozen, no doubt, and maybe even microwaved. We probably could have made a better meal out of Safeway’s freezer. The bread was standard sliced bread from a bag.
The mini cheese pizza we got for Mika, however, was pretty good.
Our second time we ordered their pepperoni & cheese pizza, which has a 4 cheese blend ($15 for their “x-large”, probable a 16″ pizza). We liked it. The pizza was on the thin side with a good amount of cheese and pepperoni. We’d order again.
You get your choice of wings, salad or a 2 liter soda with each combo pizza. We had the wings, they were fatty and came in a hot sauce that did not taste good to me. Next time I’ll go for the soda.
