Wo-max Pizza

As a courtesy to Chicago-style pizza fans and nothing more: Wo-max Pizza, which does the thick, sludgy, multi-crusty "pizza" snort popular in the Windy City. (Almost as annoying as calling Boston "Beantown" or NY "The Big Apple".) Also at Wo-max: Chicago-style hot dogs (more horrid indelicacy) & Italian beef sandwiches. No restroom makes this not a true sit-down place, tho there’s a few tables, not to mention the obligatory chi-town memorabilia on the walls. Go Cubs, Bears, whatever.

Great logo, TG and Marc.

Let's not go dissin' Chicago-style (correct use of hyphen) pizza and "red hats" over by dere, OK?

was hoping someone would come in to defend that stuff; kirk always makes such valuable contributions to the dialogue
wo-max is said to do thin-crust too for the pouty anti-thick-crust crew (of which i am obviously a member)

The only Chicago-style pizza I;ve had that comes close to what I've seen on TV is at Uno Chicago Grill and it's pretty darn good imo, but having said that I am something of a gourmand when it comes to pizza.

I haven't been to Wo-max yet, but I am a big fan of Chicago St. Pizza at Coit and Hedgcoxe in Plano.

Their deep-dish pizza is the closest I've had to the real thing -- and good real thing, at that -- since leaving the Second City* a few years ago. They also make a good Midwest-style think crust. I wouldn't bother with the stuffed pizza at Chicago St., though.

tg: What don't you like about C-SP? What's not to like about 5 lbs. of cheese in a 4 lb. pie crust, with all manner of meat, vegetables and herbs mixed in?

* Yeah, I know it's actually the Third City, but who's counting?

I've never been to Chicago Street, but I did got to Brooklyn's which is over in that area because of TG's tip on this here blog. It was okay, in a Pastazio's kinda way.

You know where else I like? You don't? Oh good, then I'll tell you.

BJ's Brewhouse on Beltline in Addison. They have some really good deep, deep--heavy on the cheese--pizza's there. Fresh (not canned) ingredients and piping hot pizza!

But then I also like the super thin crust and the Fireside crust. I just like good pizza.

Pigs are more sophisticated than dogs and three-year-olds. Pigs can play video games and assert preferences in temperature and environment.

Factory-farmed pigs are fed millions of pounds of antibiotics, and SPRAYED with pesticides.

That all goes into your mouth.

EASY THING FOR YOU TO DO: Spend an extra dollar or two and seek out pork and bacon ONLY from humane processors such as Niman Ranch, 100% Berkshire and Five Star.

I didn't know you were in N.C. Capt. Are there Mellow Mushroom's over there? I know there are some in Knoxville and Atlanta, but I can't remember if they go that far east.

Or, you can grow your own in a closet with an ultraviolet light.

Speaking of pizza, did anybody see that Alamo Draft House has signed a 15 year lease for the Casa Linda Theater at Buckner & Garland Rd? They open next spring.

They have pizza and beer. Oh yea... and movies! This will be a huge draw for that east Dallas / White Rock Lake area!

I was speaking about pigs, of course. But you can do the same with mushrooms.

FIND ME A PIG WITH ITS OWN BLOG AND I'LL BE IMPRESSED. IF THEY'RE SO SMART, WHY DO THEY ALLOW THEMSELVES TO BE EATEN?

What a great straightman...I mean straightdog...you are, twisted dog.

I'll defer to someone else to hit your softball out of the park. (No oblique reference to Korean last names intended, of course.)

good point, mongrel, (tho i sort of hate agreeing with you) and if anyone believes pig's are sweet, innocent creatures, they should read "Animal Farm."

pigs think they got it bad being sprayed with pesticides, what about roach motels and all the others things people use to try to kill me and my buddies?

tereese: are you really going to have pizza items thursday and friday?don't you think people get a little repetitious in their pronouncements about thin vs. thick crusts and the quality of the sauce and toppings. Gone With the Wind only ran something like 5 hours.

 
At August 24, 2005 5:42 PM, Blogger TG said...

well as much as i enjoy the comments section of the blog, MY goal is to report one great NEWSY item per day. i realize this is different for the commenters. (and may i thank BK for providing a nice news item in HIS comment, above.)

that said, tomorrow i must cover ozzfest and friday have deadlines, and here i have two good new pizza places in hand. it seems silly to do otherwise. even as i, too, am fatigued w/ the pizza theme.

as an aside, i am considering switching to a 4-day mon-thurs schedule. friday is a slow blog day and i often have many deadlines

Two questions: Are there any coal-oven pizzas in Dallas, and has anyone been to an Original Ray's or a Famous Original Ray's Pizzas in New York recently? When I lived in Manhattan in the 1970s, I think there was only one, on Sixth Ave. in Greenwich Village. It was always mobbed. The knowing asked for extra-crispy crust, extra cheese. Maybe they had some fancy toppings, but don't think I ever had anything but the plain, delicious pie.

i think roachs would crisp up nicely in a pizza oven, and all those toppings-must-be-fresh people would surely find them delicious

maybe you should make friday a free-for-all day where visitors could just JUMP in with comments or questions on any food subject

I often think D,B. must have landed on his head when he jumped out of that airplane. But now and then, he comes up with an interesting comment.

tg couldn't you be a roach-friendly blog too? don't you think we have family, friends and loved ones? And how should we feel when foodies --our closest cousins when it comes to hovering over edibles -- disparage us as the unclean?

Dean,

They do indeed. Nowhere near me naturally, but not too far away. I'll be in Charlotte next week so maybe I can go try it out.

You know where I like to go in Charlotte? That place Blue right on Tryon (I think). It does some really good crab cakes.
