We have lived in the area a long time and have been to this location probably 20 to 25 times. On two occasions, the small pepperoni pizza made us ill. On the first occasion, I developed sharp pains in my stomach, and diarrhea in the night. It was awful. On the second occasion (more than a year later, because we don't really go there that often) I once again had the exact same reaction. My daughter also had diarrhea. So we believe there is a problem. It could be a problem of hygiene, or it could be a problem with the ingredients. I doubt it's a flour problem, because the first time we had white flour dough, and the second time, brown flour dough. It could be the pepperoni, or cheese, or tomato sauce. But something is not right. And this is quite a severe reaction. It really hurts and the diarrhea is bad.

We went there originally because it is just "close" and "handy" and "cheap." Well, when you pay "cheap," sometimes you get "cheap" in return. Now I'm not saying that all pizza pizza's are bad. But there could also be a management problem at this place that is causing poor hygiene, or bad purchasing habits (out of date, or cheaper, quality that it should be). I do know on one occasion (about a year or two ago), I had gone into that location, and asked the man his suggestion on which pizza was better deal. The small one, or the large one? He said the large one. So I bought the large one. Then, just as I finished paying for it with my debit card, the man said to me in a rather snide tone, "It's better .... for ME ... that is!" He thought that was just really funny. But I didn't think it was so funny.
We have never really been to Dominos pizza (except once or twice). But for me, it's now a big switch. We are moving forward and not looking back. I do not recommend this store. I'm sorry, but it's probably "mostly good" and we did eat many pizzas there. But I don't want to get sick again. It's just not worth it. I will pay more, and I"m going to be happy about it. And so will my family. Thanks.
