Dominos cheeseburger pizza with jalapeno and pepperoni added.

I find Dominos average to good and compared with some indy places it's piss poor. I found a lovely pizza place on my way home from work, I didn't think they were open as the shutter was always down but they do collections out the side door, you aren't allowed inside (because Covid). Which is just bizarre since they have a licensed restaurant on the other side of town you can sit in and stuff your face for hours.

Anyway ordered on Just Eat on Saturday night - 12' pizza , garlic mozzarella bread slices and a big chip all for £12.59, lovely Naples style pizza, chips taste like home made.

Dominos even with a deal is well over £20

The best place my town for pizza is a place called Little Italy, 12' and a side works out just over £8 and the sauce has black pepper and oregano, literally the best pizza I've tasted.

12 foot of pizza and a single big chip? I want to know how big this big chip is if they do 12' pizzas.

I'm with you on this, but unfortunately the town I live in doesn't seem to have a decent alternative. Two large pizzas and two garlic breads for just over twenty quid from domino's is quite cheap really. The next closest is just a kebab shop style pizza and it's more money.

I'm out in the sticks so I can either wait 40-50 minutes for a pizza to be delivered from an indie in town or I can drive the 6 minutes to the Dominos in the next village and collect it smile Because we're in different counties, the Dominos computer says no for delivery biggrin

London is disappointing. Trying to find a nasty greasy king kebab and everywhere seems to be trying to be clean non thread worthy food frown
Do you mean to say that you couldn't find a single dirty takeaway among the almost 9,000 establishments?

Far be it for me to question your methods, but I don't think you're trying very hard...

If you go onto just eat or Uber eats etc when you type in king kebab it comes up with 0 offerings. Not to say I couldn’t find food just not the thing I wanted!

Still cleaner than most people’s domestic kitchen.
That is nonsensical, as you are paying for something. In my local area there is one 1 star, the rest are 4-5 star, why would anyone choose the 1 star is beyond me.

Totally agree but if you look at the criteria for 0-5 stars most peoples domestic kitchens, if they were assessed using the same process, would get zero or one star.

Interesting point. Does that relate to 'facilities' (fire protection, utilities for staff etc) or genuine simple cleanliness?

I am a fairly keen home cook and I reckon my kitchen is pretty clean, although I guess it's far from surgical levels of hygiene and I do tolerate the field mice outside the door in my garden!

Both and also stuff like food management. Most people don’t have their fridges stacked properly and don’t have things labelled effectively in the fridge with dates on them and stuff like that. They also don’t have a programme of deep cleans for things like fridges and ovens and all that. Cross contamination would probably be an issue too and lots more. My point is that a restaurant that gets one star is not necessarily dirty, grimy and covered in mouse droppings etc which is what people expect. It is just as likely to be the fact that they handle food much like you would at home

The website says no and offers collection only from all three branches local to me. I can certainly call them up and do it over the phone as I have in the past but I really can't be bothered with all that due to the amendments and faffing with offer codes I've had to do in the past.

Besides, it's 6 minutes for me to drive there and be certain I'll be getting my food in a timely fashion than to wait for someone to get round to delivering to me biggrin

Haha, this is true, and there’s usually a collection deal as well which is cheaper than delivery biggrin

Interesting stuff, thanks. You've made me think actually; I think my fridge is pretty clean but when I try to remember when I last emptied it and washed and disinfected it properly, I really can't remember ever doing it! That's now on the weekend jobs list.

Can't believe that I missed you were in Bicester eski as it is my hometown!

If you find yourself that way again get yourself some filth from Byallmeans for pizza and kebabs or the Sun Wah in Langford Village for Chinese.
