New Pizza at Chuck E. Cheese
What do you remember of this place when you were a kid? I remember a dark, dirty interior with creepy animatronic animals(?) or puppets whose eyes went CLICK CLICK when they blinked loudly during their song performances. Even as a kid I was not much of a fan of the place. So when I had kids, I stayed away. Finally, a friend invited me to a play date there and I decided to just go for it since it had literally been decades since I had been to one.
I was so pleasantly surprised to find that they were bright, clean, and the animatronics had been replaced with movie screens and only one animatronic Chuck, who didn't seem to click quite as loudly as he used to.
The games and rides were lots of fun for my kids, the staff was friendly, and the whole experience was far better than what I recalled. And now, there was a brand new pizza to try.
So what is the verdict on this brand new pizza?
It's as good as any restaurant quality pizza, and definitely better than take out pizza - less salt and grease, and much more flavor. In fact, it was so good that we ended up ordering another one, which we also devoured very shortly.
The bottom line is this - you could go to a sit down restaurant and have a pizza while your kids squirm and try to sneak out of their seats, or you can go to Chuck E. Cheese for fantastic pizza while your kids have a blast and you sit back and relax. It's kind of a no brainer.
