Had to try the Hot-N-Ready® pepperoni pizza from Wheaton’s new Little Caesars outpost at Ennalls/Viers Mill. It has been at least 20 years since I last ate an LC pizza. I love the HNR® concept: no pre-order, just walk in and walk right out with a pizza, quick and easy. And at the Wheaton LC it worked exactly as advertised, by far the most efficient entire-pizza (as opposed to by the slice) transaction I’ve ever had. So, props to their customer service and the assembly line.
Too bad the crust is still as bad as it was 20+ years ago. Cheese, sauce, and pepperoni are all adequate, no better or worse than other national chains. But the crust is spongy, floppy, devoid of taste or interest. At the current rate of $5 for a large, the Hot-N-Ready® is a fair deal if you don’t mind awful crust, but I’m guessing someday the price will go up.
I am now addicted to the ® symbol.
