Jeff and his wife were traveling, and had a hankering for one of Pizza Hut’s pasta dishes. They ordered up some starch-laden caloriffic goodness from The Hut’s website, then followed up with a phone call to say, “hey, we’re staying in a motel, can you send along some plastic forks?” This was evidently too much for the local Pizza Hut to handle. Which is kind of odd, considering that they deliver food and all.
It’s already unfair that the United Kingdom gets to brag about David Beckham, having a queen and lots of old castles, but now they’ve got another one up on the rest of us with a new offering from Pizza Hut: Pizza crust stuffed with a hot dog. Bring it on over here and let us Americans take a closer look.
If you’re standing outside a restaurant and see three gun-toting people in masks flee the building, what is your immediate response? For a pair of Pizza Hut drivers in Georgia, it was time to tail the suspects before they could get away.
If you envisioned the one you love crying and hurling insults at you after you propose to her, you might want to check out Pizza Hut’s “Tie the Knot with the Dinner Box” proposal kit. Perfect for the Valentine’s Day you want to ruin by proffering her your love, devotion and a box full of pizza and breadsticks.
Pizza Hut doesn’t want you meat lovers to be loving up on any meat on any pizzas that aren’t produced by them. To that end, they’re threatening a small pizza shop with legal action for using the term “meat lovers.”
As you’ve probably heard, the longstanding rule that classifies 1/8 cup of tomato paste as a serving of vegetables in kids’ school lunches — thus allowing a slice of pizza to qualify as a serving of veggies — was set to be changed, but political maneuvering recently scuttled that change. And not everyone is thrilled with that.
There is no national or international governing body that keeps track of how big a pizza is supposed to be. This is probably just as well, but Todd was still disappointed when he ordered a “Large” pizza from Pizza Hut and received a 13″ diameter pie that left his party of three hungry.
Bank of America has decided to stop selling pizza. The bank, which operates 1,140 Pizza Hut branches through its NPC International division, has reportedly decided to sell off the business. BofA could get more than $800 million for the Pizza Hut stores.
I said no anchovies and no bloody bandage! A Pizza Hut customer says when he bit into his supreme pizza pie he got a mouthful of bloodied plastic and gauze surprise.
This is a story of a small thing going wrong during a pizza order, and a relatively small gesture from the company to make things better. No, it’s not a large, earth-shattering problem. Jay took a survey on the Pizza Hut web site, and wasn’t entered in the drawing that enticed him to take the survey in the first place. Why was that, he wondered? So he used some Consumerist resources and got on the phone.
Almost a year ago, our survey-loving siblings at Consumer Reports asked several thousand readers to rate burgers from 18 burger chains and to no one’s surprise, McDonald’s came in dead last. Not satisfied with merely finding the best and worst beef-on-a-bun, CR decided to go for the super-sized option, rating 53 restaurants in five categories to find which ones provide the best food, service and value to customers.
There is a time and place to pull out a sword when you are threatened, and that’s when you are He-Man and Skeletor unleashes an attack on Castle Grayskull. On the other hand, if you happen to, say, be inside a Louisville Pizza Hut and get in a heated argument, just keep that sword in its sheath. And ask yourself why you felt the need to bring it to the restaurant in the first place.
Our post last week about “How To Game The Salad Bar” reminded commenter power lurker of the Chinese way of playing the game at Pizza Hut. See, in America when you tell people their salad bar is limited to one plate, they shrug because no American eats salad. But in China in the mid to late 2000’s, they turned into a competition to see who can create the tallest and most elaborate salad tower.
CJ and his family have tolerated subpar service from a local Pizza Hut for years because of the convenience: this Pizza Hut is just a three-minute drive away from their house. Well, placing orders from this outlet should be convenient in theory, but his last delivery order was missing the ordered Que Papa potato bites, and somehow took much too long to show up, nearly everyone in the store claims to be a manager, and the delivery person took all of the cash CJ’s son handed him instead of giving some change. Yet the story actually gets worse from there.
Imagine you’re calling up your local pizza joint to place an order but instead of explaining which half of the pizza gets the mushrooms, you hear a man in the background demanding money from the cash register.
