Re: “Papa Murphy's

The pizza toppings are great, but the dough is awful (to doughy).

Re: “Borriello Brothers - Jackson Creek

I HATE this pizza place. The pizza is great, BUT when you order for delivery the pizza is late and cold and when you sit in house they tell you its 20 minutes and then it takes an hour. Also, the seat backs move so when someone sits behind you they push you forward. I want to love this place but am disappointed each time.

Re: “Borriello Brothers - Fontaine

This Pizza WAS awesome, But no longer is very good.

Borriello Brothers Pizza used to be my favorite. I moved to the Springs from Upstate NY where NY Style pizza abounds. It's just something about the crust and sauce that makes it so good.

When Borriello Brothers first arrived in town there was not a location near our home so I used to drive out of my way downtown to pick up pies at their only location. I would have driven just about anywhere for this pizza. That was back in 2009 I believe.

Unfortunately the last two times we have ordered pizza, the latest being Dec 3, 2011 it just wasn't the same. The crust is rubbery now. Not sure I'll ever go there again since it is not the great pizza it used to be. The last two pizzas that weren't very good came from the Centennial location. I'm not sure if it is the ovens or downgrade in ingredients but the pizza is no longer to die for. I may go... more »Note the dates of the reviews. The older reviews are much better than the recent reviews. Used to be great but not worth the money any longer.

Similar to Amanda's Fonda that we used to love... until they increased the size of the restaurant and lost the specialness of the food. The homemade chips were to die for but now they are no different than low grade chips you can get at the grocery store. It just seems as restaurants grow quality declines unfortunately.

Poor Richards still has great pizza, which trumps Borriello Brothers now. And Il Vicino Wood-Oven Pizza are also very good but not NY style.

Re: “Ruffrano's Hell's Kitchen Pizza

I was perturbed that it took them 25 minutes to make a calzone. I got 2 slices of the macaroni & cheese pizza, which was tasty, but was surprised at how long it took them to bake the calzone. There was nobody ahead of me but I saw 2 take out pizzas (by that I mean I saw someone pick one up and another one that was being delivered). I was disappointed to find that there was a semi decent amount of toppings in it but there was more than 30% of just bread. I've been told it's hit or miss there and in my case, it was a miss.

Re: “Ruffrano's Hell's Kitchen Pizza

I'm sorry but I cannot rate this place very favorably. We were just there (Sat evening, July 30) and it was a disorganized mess. The pizza was not bad (although not the best I've ever had or anything), but they completely messed up our order as well as several other customer orders. If they can ever figure things out, they should be in good shape. I was frankly surprised they didn't offer us any sort of comp or anything, that was a little disappointing. Thumbs down at this point.

Re: “BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse

The menu is huge, which is usually a bad sign. The food was average - nothing special. Typical soul-less national chain.

Re: “Borriello Brothers - 8th

It's to bad, pizza started out great, but has gone steadly down hill since... the general attitude has never been good (thought they were going for that NY attitude)

Re: “Borriello Brothers - Platte

Over priced and really over priced. I have ordered their main selections, but in a gluten free crust. It really is a personal sized pizza AND they charge per item. So when you order that personal sized gluten-free crust, you are paying dearly. Be forwarned. You can make it much cheaper at home. The Caprese "salad" should be served as a salad to make it more hearty. Currently it is served traditionally a few slices of tomato, buffalo mozzarella and basil, drizzled with balsamic. Serve it over some lettuce and it will be more worth the price!

Re: “Borriello Brothers - Barnes

However their pizza may be good their business accounting is not!They don’t have the money to pay their employees. They keep BOUNCING paycheck with more than one employee!! Bad business ethics.

Re: “Joey's Pizza

Disgusting kitchen! I really liked the pizza the first few times we ate there. The last time my family ate there will be the last and here's why.... We went in and got a table for six of us in the small dining area so it's hard to miss us. We ordered pizza and got our drinks and then we waited, and waited and waited. 45 minutes later after 8-10 customers had come in and got their take out orders we went to the counter and asked what was taking so long to find out they had lost our order even though we were the only customers sitting in the dining area. They re-did our order and promised to give us free dessert to make up for it. In the meantime my Granddaughter had to use the bathroom so they let my wife escort her through the kitchen. The kitchen was filthy and the back door was open letting in a lot of flies. The flies were everywhere. When she came back from the bathroom our pizza was there and we were already eating over an hour after we ordered or I would have left and demanded our money back after hearing about the kitchen filth. We never got our free dessert though we wouldn't have eaten it. No apology from management; they blamed everything on having been busy earlier and having several new employees.

Re: “Ruffrano's Hell's Kitchen Pizza

Very BAD service. Pre paid for the food deal (one slice,knots and drink). Waited about 30 minutes, then checked up with what was taking so long and they said just a few more minutes. 20 minutes later they said my order didn't exist. Asked for refund and they gave me a hard time. I left and counted my change the lady short changed me, so I went back in and she said that I had to pay for the drink cup! I asked to speak with the manager and he was very rude yelling at me in front of the customers! NEVER coming here again.
Side Note: Other people orders were also "Non existent". Very Disappointing.

Been here once before and had luke warm re heated pizza, not good.

Re: “Ruffrano's Hell's Kitchen Pizza

I just read the review about it taking 25 mins for a calzone. Wow, I would have been overjoyed if it only took 25 mins. More like an hour!! Pizza was so so. Service was horrible and the place was a mess. $36 for crappy food. Do yourself a favor and don't go.

Re: “Papa John's

Love their pizza but BEWARE, their location on North Academy has closed, it still takes phone calls but they are redirected to their Powers location, which THEY DO NOT TELL YOU, and you end up DRIVING AN HOUR to get the pizza. Will never be their customer again!

Re: “Borriello Brothers - Barnes

I agree w/ the above ratings, The Barnes location recently re-opened due to a kitchen fire, and since then, the pizza bites. I once loved them especially when I requested they over cook it by 5 mins, making the outside crust dark and crispy, but Yuck to them now. They should have tried to save the seasoned oven, the new one does nothing for the taste. JMHO.
