delicious crab cakes, never loved kids, great dessert, never affordable pizza
Pleasantly surprised - so much more than pizza!. Wow- this place has everything under the sun. Never mind the affordable pizza- the crab cakes are delicious, the kids loved the chicken nuggets, burgers and fries. They even have great dessert! We happened to just walk in one night while in the area and I have to say I was very surprised at the variety that was on offer - both food and drinks. I don't know many pizza places that sell bottled iced tea or frappuccinos. Very cool. I'll definitely eat there again.
Mediocre pizza, but it's super-cheap.
North Hollywood (or as realtors like to call it, the "NoHo Arts District") does not suffer for lack of pizza joints. In a 4-block radius, you can find a chain (Domino's), a yuppie/gourmet pizza joint (Pit Fire Pizza), some NY-style pizza joint north of Magnolia that I haven't tried yet, Little Tony's, which is suitably old-school Italian, circa 1966 (which I also haven't tried yet) -- and if you go a little farther, there's a Pizza Hut on Lankershim and Riverside.
So why, oh, why did I go to Pizza Man? Well... I finally succumbed to the 2 pizzas for less than $10 deal that they advertised on their window. What I got? Well... pretty much what I should have expected: a pizza that was only marginally better (if that) than a frozen supermarket pizza. Generic, pre-fab crust, skimpy cheese, low-rent ingredients and later, indigestion that I normally never get from eating pizza. The service? Well, about as friendly as you could expect -- I mean, they were nice enough, but you can tell when a pizza guy knows he's selling you something even he wouldn't eat with his employee discount.
So while I don't agree with Domino's politics and sometimes wince when I'm paying that much more for a pizza from Pitfire Pizza, I don't think I'll ever go back to Pizza Man again -- even if he does deliver.
