Austin >Papa John's Pizza
The Subway of takeout pizza joints embraces fresh ingredients and store-made crusts..
These bright white storefronts are accented with green and red details and photos of the chain's boyish founder. The simple menu focuses on standard pies and chicken-centric specialty pizzas--the Hawaiian BBQ, BBQ chicken, and bacon and chicken club--each topped with fresh ingredients like baby portobello mushrooms and roma tomatoes. A selection of sides includes bread sticks, cheese sticks, chicken strips and a handful of dipping sauces.
avoid the 'bad vibe'. There was a distinct 'bad vibe' when I walked into that store to do a pick-up of my large Italian sausage. This brought me down and made me feel unwelcome from the start. The guy at the counter seemed hestitant about helping me and possibly a pleeb at the store. He took my credit card, had me sign and then, for some strange sense of job priorities, he decides stop with my transaction and started to help the next guy who walked in the meantime. So, I sat there and watched as the other guy paid, got his pizza, and left. When I got mine, which was sitting on the shelf the entire time I was there, it was wrong. And the bill he gave me to sign was was wrong. He voided my credit card as he yelled back at someone else for instructions on how to do this. I re-paid for my order, this time in cash. After he confirmed with an associate that the change back from a $20 is, in fact, $8.10 on a $11.90 purchase, I got my pizza, which as you might well have anticipated was now cold (yuk). And, the Italian sausage droplets on the pizza could have been counted on two hands by a 3-year old. God help these employees of companies that are not well trained, well paid and are not happy ('bad vibe'). God help the American companies that have to deal with a workforce that can't count. And finally, help the customers that are too stupid by coming back to these stores and expecting something different.
