Cheap-O’s: Madison House of Pizza Review


Riley McGraw and Cooper Sawyer

Pizza is one of many staples of our society. Tucked away in a corner next to a shut down Radio Shack, Madison House of Pizza at 8644 Madison Blvd, Madison, AL packs an authentic flavor of New York style pizza in a not-so New York town. The pizza’s quality can be broken down into five different categories: Service, Taste, Water, Price, and Overall Quality.

Service: Employees seemed a little distracted with each other, which made us feel slightly unwelcome. The wait time was about twenty minutes, from entering the restaurant to leaving with our pizza.

Rating: 3 / 10

Taste: The cheese tasted good; however, the consistency was slightly rubbery, and the cheese came clean off with one bite. The amount of sauce was good and tasted well made. The crust was baked nicely–fluffy and not invasive.

Rating:  8 / 10

Water: The cheapest drink on the menu was water. The water came from a fountain drink dispenser and tasted like normal tap water. Bottled water was offered, but for extra cost.

Rating:  5 / 10

Price: The cost of one small cheese pizza is $8.53, and the total would be $9.29 including tax. For the quality of a New York style pizza, we feel the price was adequate, and would willingly pay for another of the same price.

Rating: 7 / 10

Overall: Though the pizza was enjoyable, the service brought down the rating. Several Google reviews also agreed that the employees are discourteous. We would return for the food, but not the service.

Rating: 5.5 / 10
