Well, on a visit back to our old stomping grounds, my hubby craved the delicious pizza and salad bar he remembered from our pre-kids days when we'd visit Zio's pretty regularly.
We brought our boys with us, and got seated in the front corner booth...very spacious. We were even more excited about the super deal on pizza's...on Monday nights the pizza's are all half price. Sort of. More on that later.
So, we ordered the Panzanella which is an AWESOME white pizza, and we added onions. Had a great ceasar salad too...but there was no more salad bar. Bummer.
Well, then we found out why. Our boys were enjoying their pizza (they were a deal, so we got them a large of their own, figuring we'd take home the leftover) when the boys suddenly jumped and slid almost out of the booth...in the corner (behind where the boys had been resting their heads on the booth back) was a HUGE cockroach. Yuck. Not little...this was a good 2-incher. OK, it was smaller than the ones I've seen in Florida, but those were at night on the patio, NOT on the wall behind my head in a restaurant. YUCK!
Then (yes, it gets better), we found out that the pizza itself was half price, but not the toppings. OK, I knew that, which is why we bought a "specialty pizza" that came with lots of toppings included for one price. Except that's not how it works...even on the combination pizzas, like the veggie lovers or the other fancy ones, you get the cheese and sauce pizza half price, then pay 1.75 for every other topping on there...so the large veggie lovers pizza is 19.95...half price is 9.95, plus 1.75 times FOUR toppings...so your half price pizza is now 17.00...not quite such a great deal. The folks at the table beside us were quite surprised...as were we.
SO...we now know why there's no more salad bar...the cockroaches apparently carried it away...which is where we'll eat next time we're in the area...AWAY from here. Too bad, it once was an awesome place.
