Haven't had Domino's in years. Of the two chains, I prefer Papa John's.

That said, we now live half a mile from our local pub which not only brews its own beer, but also make their own wood-fired pizzas. They're simply the best pizzas I've had outside of Italy. The beer's pretty damned good as well. We're off their tonight with our daughter and son-in-law. :bouncy:

I have no idea why anyone buys from them any more.



Apparently a lot of people.

I never thought about making my own pizza until moving to Australia. Pizza here is not like the US. Dominos here is bad, just bad. And many smaller pizza shops do not have pork sausage, based on religious beliefs. So I've mastered making dough and make a pretty good pie.

Not me. I drive a truck for a living, so I only get to eat what's available where I am. Pizza generally isn't on that list.

Before COVID I visited Viet Nam and one night went eating at a Domino's in my grandfather's hometown. Lots of young people, all excited, you could see this was the "place to be". Despite a pizza costing way more than the average meal.

TA and Petro truck stops don't have pizza. Some TA's have Sbarro's inside, in which case pizza is there provided they are actually open. Some Pilot truck stops also don't have pizza. Keep in mind I drive a 72-foot long tractor-trailer, so finding a place to stop to get something to eat isn't as straightforward since most restaurant parking lots aren't big enough for us to maneuver around.

The Dominos chain gives up on Italy. Closes all the stores.

Here in the UK, Domino's are generally a rip-off unless you've got a coupon and you're willing to collect (coupons for collections sometimes differ from coupons for deliveries). We occasionally get one if we have a BOGOF coupon as my wife has a gluten intolerance and they offer a gluten free base that most other takeaways and even quite a few Italian restaurants don't offer. If I'm getting a takeaway pizza for myself, an independent takeaway is usually preferred on price grounds.

However, close to me an independent pizza restaurant that does fantastic pizza and offer GF bases as an option has recently started trialling deliveries. If they stick with it I know where I'll be ordering from in the future instead of the takeaways or Domino's.

Dominos is like Kohls: menu prices are high, but there's perpetual sales and coupons. For example, all pizzas are 50% off the menu price this week. Alternatively, if I walk into my local Dominos, I can get a three-topping carryout for $8. It's not the best pizza, but it's good, and it's great value for the money. Much better than Costco, IMO, which for some reason is the sales leader in much of the Los Angeles area.
