Does Anyone Still Eat At Pizza Hut?

Hi!

Today while I was driving back from a short break in France with my brother I started thinking of this Adam Sandler film I've been watching recently where he takes these kids to Pizza Hut at one point. It really put me in the mood of going to one but the one in my local town here in the UK has closed down. Are they still doing well? Do their pizzas still taste nice? Do they still do that salad bar where you fill that tub until it's way overfilled with a ton of potato salad and other stuff! Maybe it just tastes better when you're a kid but as a kid we definitely had some good times in my family going to get Pizza Hut to bring home!

So anyone still go to Pizza Hut? Can I come along next time please!

Many thanks,

Pierre

I don't know about Europe but Pizza Hut is still alive and doing well (and probably my favorite chain pizza, although Domino's is pretty good since they changed their recipe) here in the US.

When I was a kid, we used to go to Pizza Hut maybe once a month or so. They had some deal with schools, where if you read a book (or a certain number of books, or something), you'd get a free pan pizza.

In the last 15 years, I've only gotten delivery from Pizza Hut. In fact, I have no idea if they even still have sit-down restaurants; all the ones near where I live are just delivery locations, far as I know.

I liked the pizza when I was a kid, but compared to local pizza shops, Pizza Hut is far worse. A big pile of grease with some bread, cheese, and sauce thrown in.

With that said, I still do order it now and then. Sometimes you just feel like eating a big pile of grease...!

Pizza Hut is DISGUSTING! It's the McDonald's of pizza chains. Except McDonald's is tolerable on occasion.

I enjoyed Pizza Hut when I was a kid, back when the local Pizza Hut in my hometown was more like a pizza parlor. Now it's a fast food chain and I cannot stress enough how awful it is. My brother loves it and we argue about this every time the topic of pizza comes up.

I think they do have sit down restaurants, and I think we're both out of their demographic. In college I used to go to them or order from them fairly often. Once I graduated I bought more from Little Caesars, now that I am a "professional" I spend probably 2-3 times more on a pizza then I would from Pizza Hut and get a decent pie from a local restaurant.

To be honest, frozen pizzas have caught up with Pizza Hut. I'd buy a Digerno or whatever they call it pizza before that. CostCo take and bake pizzas go for $9 and are twice the size of Pizza Huts too.

I eat there every so often. Prefer the base from pizza hut but Domino's toppings. No idea why 

I quite like the free unlimited salad they give you with your food although It is an expensive eat out though for what it is. Dominos, however, if you get 2 pizzas and 2 sides it can come to 60 (yes, SIXTY) quid if not more.

I actually like Pizza Hut thin crust pizza and I'd ordered it on a bi-weekly basis for a long time. Much better than Dominos, Papa Johns, etc.

Now that I live in rural Alaska I'd actually pay a great deal for pretty much any type of pizza.

Indeed - I just looked now, if you want 2 14 inch pizzas, garlic bread and 2 1.25l cokes, it's 46 quid. The pizzas are 20 quid EACH.

It's a lot for pizza (and greasy pizza at that - 170 cals a slice) and I could easily get the same from a local takeaway (which isn't exactly good for you either anyway) and pay half that. My local dominos is a takeout/delivery only store with a pizza hut next door, and dominos are very often caught sticking their promo stickers and leaflets on pizza hut's door.

They do... There's at least 2 in my city. Haven't been to either in a few months, but both parking lots are almost always full when I drive by.

There's also one of the delivery/take out only ones close to my house. That one is fairly busy as well.

I went last year after not going for many years and it was awful. It has gone very downmarket and the pizzas aren't THAT good. I think Pizza Express have given them a run for their money, not to mention the abundance of high quality pizzas that you can now cook at home. I always feel that Pizza Hut cater primarily for children and the lower end of the market.

Me too. I think of the takeaway pizza chains, Pizza Hut's thin crust pizza is the best of the lot. It is certainly better than Domino's, in my opinion.

You must have been to the McDonalds on Virginia Ave. (ATL) Except that one is rarely tolerable! There is also a Pizza Slut on Virginia Ave. I think it was cleaned sometime back in the early 1980's.There was a fire back in the 1990's that shut it down for a while. Most of the surviving cockroaches moved over to the Flying Pig. I think the dirt/grease combination is the only thing holding the building up at this point.

I know what you mean. I think it is because there are so many Americans who have never tasted "good" American Pizza such as can be obtained in places like New York or Chicago. Personally, There is no pizza quite like what I can get in New York. It just has a certain taste to it I can't find anywhere else.

When I was brought up in London we used to go once every few months and it was a treat. When I go to see my Mum in London sometimes we still go but its maybe twice a year.

We have Pizza Hut in Dublin and I have been a few times over the last year for lunch with a mate . I still enjoy it but not that often .

When I do go its Garlic bread and cheese. Then I get a Super Supreme deep pan with pineapple and black olives.

There's a Pizza Hut in my hometown. Its a fairly new building thats actually nice to sit down in. I usually have them deliver as I am usually to busy to go in and sit down. There is a local mom and pop place but they dont deliver so I go with Pizza Hut more often than not. Pizza Hut does have its share of grease, however all the Dominoes in my state seem like they're twice as greasy, so I go with Pizza Hut.

Pizza Hut is somewhat isolated in PR. There are as many sit-in restaurants as there are carry out/delivery only restaurants. Lately I've been meaning to eat healthier so I rarely eat at Pizza Hut (about 2-3 times/year). However, I'd never miss out if invited.

I was just in a Pizza Hut restaurant this past Saturday here in northern NJ. I don't think I had been in a sit-down for a number or years or even take-out for at least a year.Their pizza is ok, and with coupons it can be a good value but in Northern NJ there are many good family run pizza places with better quality and fair pricing I would chose first. Pizza Hut, along with other chains, may be the only places to get anywere a decent pizza away from major cities with significant Italian-American populations and where few independent, family run pizza places. Unfortunately US style pizza has become a generic fast food in many places of so-so quality.

Throughout the USA, Pizza Hut has closed down some sit-down restaurants over the years and opened up many 'express' locations in malls and take-out/delivery locations. They still advertise nationally on TV and radio, often have coupons in the newspapers and ad fliers you get in the mail, so they must have enough customers.

Growing up in the 1990s, Pizza Hut was THE pizza place. To this day, I measure all pizzas against the ones made by PH. I loved their salad bars, their family-oriented vibe, and their consistent quality. In recent years however I do admittedly eat there less often, not because I think they're 'less-cool' or 'past-it', but because PH outlets haven't increased the number of outlets they have, especially when compared with Chilli's or McDonald's.
Last week I was walking in Dubai with my family when we noticed a Pizza Hut restaurant filled to the brim; in fact, there were so many that even the outside area was more or less full (and inside is a 2-floor restaurant), unusual for Dubai in the summer. Brought back so many memories.
In Egypt they need to expand more. The latest batch of malls/trendy recreational areas do not seem to have any Pizza Huts that I can think of. PH seems to be focusing on the home delivery segment more, even here. Perhaps it's profitable, and PH ads do continue to appear in the media, but I do feel like they've been somehow eclipsed by other eateries.

Ever since the Domino's down the street from me closed several years ago, the only pizza place that delivers to my area is Pizza Hut (Papa John's claims that there is one that delivers to my area, but I'm sure that if I tried to order from the, they'd say they don't deliver to my area.). That being said, if I'm going to go out for pizza, I drive to the Little Caesar's in the shopping center at the entrance to my neighborhood.

I normally buy a cheap frozen pizza at the store and doctor it up with my own ingredients.

Pizza Hut is vile. Dominoes is only a little less vile. Papa John's is the poster child for vileness.

But, I grew up in NY and subscribe to the notion that pizza is like sex...it's all good (even the vile stuff), just varying levels of good.
