You probably read this title and thought the same thing I would have - How can one place have the worst pizza ever? They do, read on for more.
My best friend and I walked to the Ducktown Tavern from our hotel and were searching for some good ol' American bar food as we had just flown to Philly and then driven into Atlantic City. We were starving and were delighted at the specials and ambiance of what the Ducktown Tavern looked like so we sat down to order.
The waitress, after a few minutes, came to get our drink orders and tell us about the specials. She mentioned pizzas were $5 for the afternoon - and she won me over immediately. I ordered a buffalo chicken pizza and my friend opted for a Gyro.
After about 15-20 minutes of waiting, our food arrived. According to my friend, the gyro was "pretty good but nothing special" - I would have happily traded mine for hers. My pizza arrived - the dough was dry, thick, and had no taste. There was NO sauce what-so-ever on the pizza, just buffalo chicken (that appeared pre-made) and cheese, and not even a lot of cheese. As an Italian American, my heart hit the floor as this pizza was the WORST I've ever had. And please understand, I was starving when I ordered this, so you know it was bad.
Then, my favorite part happened. The waitress came over and told me the pizza I ordered wasn't $5, it was actually $9. She never really explained why, even after I asked over and over and explained that the only reason I was swayed from the gyro was the pizza special and it was awful. She didn't really do anything - ask a manager - offer to comp something, just gave us our checks.
-The service was just OK, so-so at best
-The gyro was OK but nothing special
-The buffalo chicken pizza was the worst pizza I've ever had
