This so-called Pizza Wars article has lots of words and almost no information. For example, the "wars" part implies it was some sort of contest. Who won? Who even participated other than Brother's, Rosalie's and Norland Grille...

Speaking of Norland Grille, the article states: "For the Norland Grille, open for three months, Pizza Wars was a great way to introduce more people to their pizzas, said Scott Vorhees, owner. In those three months, they have sold more than 10,000 pizzas."

Holy hell, 10,000 pizzas in 3 months! I believe Norland Pub (which has been operating at least 10 years) recently sold their 10,000th pizza. Let's do a little math. Lets say Norland Grille's been open 90 days. That's 111 pizzas sold per DAY. I don't even think the busiest major chains sell half that number.

Voting for pizza is silly.
Why would I care about someone else's opinion?

And strangers, yet.

I don't even agree with my own family. I like NY style as actually served in NYC. They want stuff with lots of red sauce and don't care if the crust has risen or not.
You can't argue taste, and it's less interesting to vote on it.

It's not silly, it's awesome! I agree part of what makes pizza great is that it's so diverse, everyone has a favorite. But an event like this should be geared toward encouraging people to try a different pizza or pizza place - and maybe find a new favorite. I'm glad I've opened up to different styles and places.

So I think voting on pizza is a great idea, even if its as subjective as a person's preference in music. In fact, around here, a lot of people may eat pizza based on factors other than taste. In fact, events like this may encourage people who only eat chain pizza cooked on conveyor belts to actually try some decent, pizza oven pizza.

But, the article left us wondering what the point of the event was anyway. Very little information about participants, and no info about what places people liked. It's too bad.

Thanks for bumping this thread...

I found out, independently, that Caretti's won the pizza wars - the one on Philadelphia Ave, not the one by Walmart. A well-deserved win in my opinion.

No thanks to the poor reporting in this article.

I have been to Caretti's home and it's awesome. Always something Italian on the stove or oven.

A very friendly family but for some reason that doesn't seem to carry over to their restaurant. Food is still great but the friendliness is not there. Typical Chambersburg?

I'm ok with the gruff service, it reminds me of New York pizzerias where they know the food speaks for itself.

Honestly, they've never been short or rude with me, just down to business. I like that, I don't need southern hospitality, but I can see how it could come across to some people. I know it helps to be regular. And the few times I've dined in, the waitresses have always been friendly.

I mean Edith's apparently had the nicest people ever working there, but the pizza tasted like cardboard. At the end of the day, I always care more about the food than the service.

Rosalie's is another example where the service is almost universally bad. Do they hire anyone over the age of 15? But when their pizza is good, it's great. I don't go there because I've found it to be very inconsistent - that brick oven should be churning out the best pizza in town, but they don't always have someone who understands pizza doing the cooking. Unlike Caretti's where it always seems to be a Caretti sticking the pies in the oven.

Let's not forget Benny's - they have great service and great food.

I'll pass on all the Pat & Carla's and Brother's there are now.

You just couldn't resist could you? You and civility are like water and oil...the two just don't work together.

I made a comment about knowing the Caretti family and you had to be sarcastic. What's with you? Are you that miserable that you hate to see anyone else that is not?

I have said nothing nasty to you since we hit the "restart" button. But good old Dan just couldn't keep his nastiness and sarcasm under wraps very long. Says a lot about your character as a trustworthy person for starters.

You really are pathetic. A beautiful day and all you can manage to do is post nothing but your usual sarcasm and misery. You should be out enjoying the beauty of the day. Not you, you're too busy being a number one nerk that can't keep his word for more then a few days.

Take a hike loser and while you're at it take a spelling/grammar book so you can learn the difference between here/hear.

Whoa. A little off the deep end, don't you think?

I made a harmless little poke at your self-important post and suddenly you're making personal attacks and calling names. It's almost like you were looking for an excuse.

But whatever. You're just proving what you are. I'll remain civil even though you'd rather take it to the gutter.

Oh please! You have no idea what being civil means. You have proven what you are long, long ago to me and everyone else.

KNOCK IT OFF!

What's the deal with Pizza Boxx?? It opened where Fox's used to be. Did I ask this before? I'm getting redundant because people get all pissy if I talk about an Asian restaurant.

Speaking of Asian restaurants, the Supreme Buffet is set to open soon at the old Hoss's. Hard to excited about that.

When are we going to privatize booze sales?
