I haven’t been to Auburn Town Pizza in many, many years. Not since they expanded and redid the whole place. My companion and I were in the mood for an “armpit” pizza (onion only), so while we were out running errands and shopping near Drury Square, we thought we’d pop in for lunch. As soon as we entered through the rear parking lot entrance, we were immediately struck by the pungent aroma of what was to be a portion of our lunch.
I was surprised at how large the restaurant now is and even though it was the noon hour and they were doing a bustling take-out and dine-in business, there was plenty of seating available in both dining rooms (divided for some unknown odd reason).
The service process hasn’t changed: You make your selection(s) from a large board behind the counter (they have really expanded the menu options), pay for it, find yourself a table and wait for them to call the number on your ticket to pick up your order at the same counter. After grabbing a couple of Polar sodas ($1.50 each) from one of the coolers near the ordering area, the two of us put in our order for a small onion pizza ($7.25) and a small Italian grinder ($4.45) to share. We waited about 20 minutes for our food.
We were not disappointed with our pizza which was really hot and rife with onions, or our grinder, which was perfectly toasted, as we requested, though we did think that Town Pizza’s prices, especially for the small one-topping pizza, were a little higher than other area pizza joints of the same caliber. I don’t exactly know how long ago the establishment underwent its transformation, but it seems they are still passing on the cost to their customers.
We’ll definitely be back when we are in the area again because of the quality of the food. We look forward to sampling some of the other interesting things from their large menu.
