The Pizza Incident

One of our favorite pizzas from Chicago Connection - a large pepperoni. But last night's delivery to our house went strangely awry. The pizza delivery truck pulled up, then left, then came back and the pizza delivery guy explained that he had delivered our pizza to someone else by accident, but he went and got it back, and since it only had ONE PIECE cut out of it, would we be O-K taking it? He said the restaurant wanted me to take it. I called the restaurant and they denied it. They promised me a coupon but never sent anything and never apologized.

  1. I would love to have seen the look on your face when you opened the box. Its not funny, but I cant help but laugh.

    If I was the driver, I would have played dumb and said it was our diet pizza.

  4. I wish we had a place to get "Chicago" pizza. Never trust a kid driving a small car and working for tips!

  5. That's what you get for eating "Chicago" pizza! ; )

    Get yourself some real pizza from Guido's New York Pizza on 5th, just North of Idaho St.

    Or Tony's Pizzeria Teatro alongside the Egyptian on Capitol Blvd for Napoli Style bliss.

    Make sure you try his Tiramis├╣ too.

  6. Living next to a neighbor that would take delivery of a pizza they did not order should give you second thoughts. The drive is probably typical Boise minimum wage but the neighbor is a whole different take on your city! With an unstable economy, erratic employment, people living in houses they could never pay for or perhaps living in a foreclosed house just for the fun of it, I am actually surprised anyone showed up with a pizza at all. And then the pizza company try to make good on your neighbors dishonesty, amazing. And actually the picture shows a really good looking pizza, how did it taste?

  8. I am still laughing at this one! I'm sorry. Someday you'll laugh about it, too. We have only one place that delivers pizza in our entire town. Knowing my family, if the pizza arrived one slice short we'd probably eat the rest of it anyway. When we're hungry, we're really hungry.

  13. That is certainly an interesting story....! Just goes to prove that often truth is, in fact, stranger than fiction!

    Glad you called the restaurant and verified the, uh, story!!

    I like Jim's comment about it being a diet pizza! heh!

  15. Ordered a Chicago Connection pizza to be delivered. I ordered a specialty pizza and wanted to substitute out one of the items because I do not like green peppers. They refused to do this without charging for the substitution (I was subsituting a vegetable for a vegetable so little if any cost variation to them). The "manager" said he could not do it. Not possible. He had not authority. Ridiculous.
    The worst customer service I have ever encountered. When you pay 20 bucks for a pizza they should be accomidating but they were not.

    An Ok pizza. Doubtful I will order from these guys again. Poor Poor customer service when the pizza itself cost them 3 bucks to make.
