Dewey's Pizza: 1327 W 5th Ave, Columbus, OH 43212.
Atmosphere (out of 5): 3.5. It wasn't really warm and had a "corporate" vibe, but it was unique and ultimately not cramped. Easy place to hang and talk even though it was busy.
Price (out of 5): 4.0. It rounded out to about $10 a guy. That's right on target. But, some of the drinks were a little on the pricey side. However, pretty solid value for unique pizza.
Location (out of 5): 3.5. It can be a drive for some folks. But, overall, not a terrible location. Parking availability is good.
Service (out of 5): 5.0. Erin was our waitress' name. She is the absolute best we've had. Drinks never went dry. Funny as all get out. Really made the whole experience memorable.
Taste (out of 10): 7.5. Dewey's best pizza is probably the Ryan's Inferno with a close second going to the Hawaiian pizza. But, the pepperoni was lacking in my book (Jeff liked it a lot). The Dr. Dre was cool-sounding but lacked a punch. Meatball was solid as we think the meatballs were homemade and the sauce was solid.
Bottom Line: Dewey's Pizza in Grandview earned a respectable 23.5/30 possible points. Atmosphere was decent. Price was on target. Location was a small drive but parking was easy. Service was the best we've had - ever. Taste was good, but lacked in key areas. Would we recommend going to this place? Sure. It's definitely worth another visit or two for sure. Well done, guys!
