G & D Pizzaria

Sorry for the long break, but we are finally back.  It’s been a busy couple of weeks for both us between studying for finals and sleeping until noon, but we are ready to get back to the rigorous tasks of eating pizza and lazily attempting to write a semi-humorous blog.  I know our last restaurant visit seems like an eternity ago, but loyal followers will remember we went to local favorite G & D Pizzaria, located near the intersection of Broadway and Stadium.   Jenni could not make this visit, and it was the first time Fallon and Gilman had visited this establishment, so we were in for a few surprises.  Could G & D crack the top 5 in the UPR?  What celebrity did The Quest run into?  Can Fallon and Gilman solve the BP oil crisis?  Two of these questions and many more will be answered in the rest of this entry.

The Order:

1 Large Pizza
-          Pepperoni and Italian Sausage
1 Cheesy Bread
2 Bud Lights

Price – $25.15 ($12.58 / person)
Wait Time – 24 minutes

Take it to-go!  Are you a big bear on the move?  Or maybe you are THE Big Bear?  Then grab some G&D’s…and get the f out of that place!
“Huh?!  Wreh?”
That’s right, Jeff (see: Jeff “The Bear” Bailey)!
G&D certainly offered some pretty decent pizza, no question.  But the restaurant felt more like a mix between an Old Country Buffet and a Chuckie Cheese than it did a pizza place.  Kids and old people crawling all over the place.  This just hurt the experience too much for G&D to garner a top-flight rating.
“I do not have TIME for this!”
Nor do I, Jeff.  Nor do I.
The crust, cheese and sauce were all good.  The toppings tasted very good and were arranged very uniquely at one sausage per slice².   And they served tiny beers for $2.50.  Lame.  The pizza gets high marks, the restaurant does not.

Gilman’s Take:

When our pizza was brought to our table, I had flashbacks to our experience at Tony’s Pizza Palace as the pizzas looked eerily similar.
It also reminded me of another Fallon and Gilman related doppelganger incident I witnessed this week which can be seen in the picture to the right.  Although their appearances were the same, the two pizzas could not have been more different.  At G & D, the cheese and toppings actually stayed on the pizza when you attempted to take a bite out of it, and the crust was not burnt at all.  The only bad thing I could say about the pizza was that the toppings were a little scarce.  But just as G & D’s pizza had its UPR approaching legendary status, the ambiance took it down a peg or two.  If I had to guess, I would say TLC was filming a new reality show where toddlers tried to run a pizza restaurant because kids were running around everywhere.  I’m not saying I wouldn’t watch that show, because I almost certainly would.  However, I’m not interested in actually eating at that kind of restaurant.  Also, there was a baby next to us wearing glasses, which always makes me uncomfortable.  However, through all of the kids, we were able to spot The Quest’s first celebrity guest: Mizzou football head coach Gary Pinkel!  He was too shy to approach us, but we appreciated his presence and support.  Overall, my stance on G & D Pizzaria can be neatly summarized.  The good: the pizza, Gary Pinkel.  The bad: toddlers, glasses baby.
