Paul: There’s this new shopping center across the street from the Publix on the East-West Connector in Smyrna. The main store there is Sprout’s Farmers Market. But, next to it they opened an Uncle Maddio’s Pizza Joint, an AT&T Wireless store, one of those nail places, and a Mattress Firm.
After church on Sunday night, we went to Uncle Maddio’s Pizza Joint for dinner. When we got there, the owner asked us if we had ever been there before. We answered, “No.” He told us that it was like a Moe’s, Willy’s or Subway - but for pizza!
So, basically, how it works is they have personal pizzas and you can pick your dough, your sauce, your cheese, and three toppings. This is called the “Build Your Own” in case you were wondering. They also have specialty pizzas that are made with pre-decided ingredients. They also have salads and toasted paninis.
After they make your pizza fresh in front you, they put it in a conveyer oven. It takes around five to ten minutes.
I ordered the traditional crust, tomato basil sauce, mozzarella cheese, pineapple, red onions, and bacon. The pizza was good because the ratio of sauce to cheese to toppings was great. If you go to some pizza restaurants that aren't the best, they have lot of cheese and barely any sauce on the pizza. But not at Uncle Maddios! Another reason why I like the pizza here is the crust. It is very light and airy. So, you can eat your entire 9” personal pizza without getting stuffed. The cooking time was spot-on. It wasn’t burned and it wasn’t under-cooked. It was just right. WARNING: The bacon is very salty!
For dessert, they have MASSIVE cookies. We ordered chocolate chip. You have option to put your cookies on the pizza conveyer belt to heat them up. I recommend it that way. I wouldn’t exactly call it a cookie. I’d call it a “mini-cake”! It was good. Not amazing. But, really good.
Uncle Maddio's is awesome!
Sam: I ordered the BBQ Chicken Pizza on traditional crust with no onions. It was great - no..wait…it was OUTSTANDING! What I mean by “outstanding” is outstanding with no bacon. I mean, it comes with bacon, but you should order it without. The reason why should leave off the bacon is because it’s overpowering…or whatever that word is.
There were lots of posters on the walls. Surprisingly, there was only one poster that had a pizza on it. The poster above our booth looked like it was a picture of Italy because they are famous for good pizzas. They actually are. I read that in a book.
Oh, yeah, let’s go back to Paul’s review of Uncle Maddio’s…. Don’t listen to Paul about those cookies! I didn’t think they were THAT big. They were good, though. Even though it was chocolate chip, it tasted a little like homemade sugar cookies right out of the oven.
Uncle Maddio’s was clean. But, I expected it to be clean because it was a new place and a lot of times stores and restaurants are clean when they are new.
And now….dun dun.... DUNNNNNN!!! It's time for my patented bathroom review! The bathrooms were based on modern stuff. The cabinets were modern. The lights were modern. Pretty much everything in the bathroom was modern. Like I said before, the place was new - so it was clean.
Thanks for reading the bathroom review and our restaurant review! I hope you read us again!
