about 3 pages back, lol...

we need some news! until then, it's all filler, lol... once we find out the fate of the MLB position, there will be all kinds of things to discuss again.... until then, it looks like pizza is the topic...

Best pizza in Winnipeg is made at my home, made from homemade mozzarella, special sauce and fresh dough.   Grin

I think you forgot to give us your address, just sayin'...  surely making a claim such as 'the best' will require confirmation by one or more forum members... that's the rules... you knew that, right?  Grin

Had Gondola thin crust for supper tonight, it's only a couple bucks more than pizza hotline but SO much better. Santa Lucia is one of my favorites too.

Imo's is the only chain that I ever get pizza from, if I do... there is this little place called Arris' that makes the best pizza around here... a family owned Greek restaurant that makes incredible pizza here in one of those stone ovens I believe... that and gyros, O M G, I love me some gyros... time for some supper, my friends, lol...

Only place 66 mentions that's also up here is Papa Johns.  Papa isn't bad if you like doughy crust.  It's run of the mill, like Dominos.  I get Papas when they have the midweek blow-out specials.

For the Pizza Hotline bashers, ya it's the cheapest stuff around, but on the bright side it's the cheapest stuff around.  You can't feed 8-10 people for under $40 anywhere else (4XL 2top!).  Here's a hint: on the thick crust they never cook it enough, so when you get it, stick it in the (toaster) oven at 330 for 4-7 minutes.  The cheese gets super gooey and the crust cooks and heats up and some of the grease goes away.  It's waaay better that way.  Works on leftovers too.

For less people, gotta be Pizzaland, especially if you like dough!  Gondola is still good, they have the best Pepperoni in town, but are oily.  I'll contradict everyone and say Santa sucks, but it could just be my closest location.  BP used to be good but is going downhill a lot and dropped my fave flavor years ago; and like $60 for 2 LG is insane.

Bones was very good for the price.  Like the 90's version of Hotline, but better.  I think there's still 1 left in town?  Talking old... I liked Sabinos back in the day.

My apologizes for have to turn this into a Pizza thread but now living in Calgary I dearly miss the various fantastic Pizza Joints in the Peg. Does anyone know if Niakwa Pizza is still around? We use to love the one Archibald. Is it still there?

My apologizes again but besides the Bombers my fondest memory of the Peg is the food (other than that is where I met my wife way way back when). Smiley

The Achibald Niakwa location is long gone. Was a favourite location for me growing up, too. Perhaps I?ll be able to order from a different location while watching Henoc Muamba play for the Bombers soon.

I thought I?d change the menu up and talk about my ALL TIME favourite burger and fries takeout stand ever....VJs at 170 Main Street.  When I lived in the Peg in the early 70s we used to go there after the bars shut down as it was the only place open after 1AM.   Randy Bachman still goes there and it?s rated 4.5 stars out of 5 if you want a giant sized feast burger and home cut fries and a thick chocolate shake.   I?m amazed it?s still open 50 years later....definitely need to go there next time I?m in the Peg....maybe take in some good live blues then go for a VJ special!

Blondies make the best burgers but they?re pretty expensive. I also love the Fat Boy from Juniors and the George burger from George?s on St Mary?s.

Kona burger at Original Joe's is great.

VJ's offers the best chance for a late night stabbing of any of the top burger joints...
