Could I Get Some Pizza with My Pizza, Please?
I was born in Colorado and have eaten at Beau Jo's in Idaho Springs many times after skiing. The pizzas are WAY overpriced for what you get, the service is SLOW and the pizzas have a HUGE rim of crust that ends up being a huge ripoff.
I went there with a friend once, and we weren't very hungry, so we shared a small pizza. Well, after waiting about 1,000 years, they brought out this tiny pizza that was LITERALLY 2/3 CRUST with a small ring of cheese and mushrooms in the middle. I SWEAR the cheese center was about 5"" in diameter, and the crust rim was about 3.5"" wide, rendering you one 12"" wide pizza with VIRTUALLY NO PIZZA IN THE PIZZA, all for about $12 before tax and tip.
I WAS SOOOOOOO ANGRY, because I hate being ripped off.
Bread is cheap and topings are expensive, which is why they scam you with pizzas that are mostly crust.
Much has been made of the honey-on-the-crust issue on this forum. Well sure, it tastes good, but for th price of a Beau Jo's pizza you can get about 4 loaves of good bread and a big jar of honey at the supermarket and eat that to your heart's content.
Beau Jo's is ALL HYPE, period. Old Chicago makes WAY, WAY, WAY, WAY, WAY BETTER PIZZA.
