Is it my imagination?

Or did pizza used to be a cheap food? Seems like it was in college. That's why we ordered so much of it. When did a medium thick crust pizza with 3 toppings get to be $25?

I can still find a single slice out here at many places for around $1.50...

A slice I probably could too. Those slices for $1.50 sure don't add up to $25 though.

You can still get cheap pizza if you know how and where to look. Of course the quality of it will vary from place to place but it's possible.

I think they have been upping the delivery charges which really sucks because it's a good, middle of the road in price - pizza place. If youy eat in at the restaurant it costs like $15. $10 for delivery and I have to wait for an hour to get it? Come on!

Aurelios, a local chain. I think a big chunk of that is the delivery charge but still...

They're probably trying to save up to come to the northern 'burbs or something...

I think when everyone started to up theri delivery charges they just said, Hell, we'll raise it by $10 and just leave it there all at once.

Some local mom n pop 'zza joints are generally cheaper than any larger ones (meaning any that have franchises like Aurelia's or Lou Malnati's all the way up to Domino's and Pizza Hut).

Typically, ones that are ALWAYS stuffing menus and flyers into your mailbox or on your doorknob or car windshield make you wonder WHY they need to advertise so much. If you decided to try their pizza, order a cheese pizza only. Cheap and no worries of undercooked meat or improperly handled toppings like mushrooms or peppers.

A place that looks like a hole-in-the-wall but a) has been around for a long time and b) doesn't advertise very much is almost always worth checking out.
