Decent Pizza is much better than its name would suggest, and after picking Becks up from her office we headed over there for lunch. I am a fan of this place because it is conveniently located on North Monroe Street , is very reasonably priced and most importantly, has great food.
Upon entering we were greeted by the cashier as we checked over the menu she told us the special of the day. We settled on an order of bread sticks and a pepperoni calzone. While Becks got a coke I settled into a booth. Decent Pizza’s décor is funky with posters advertising bands and drawings done by kids dotting the walls. The menu is on a large chalkboard and it feels like something that belongs in a college town. I love it.
Our bread sticks were piping hot and out of the oven in no time. They covered half of a pizza pan and were delicious soft doughy sticks of bread stick goodness. The sauce cup they gave us was more than enough and was a nice change from the thimble size sauce sides that accompany bread sticks at other unnamed pizza places.
The calzone came out just as we were finishing the bread sticks. The calzone is huge and the cook asked if we wanted it split on two plates. We thanked him for this courtesy and by the time it came to our table the cashier/waitress had cleared off our prior collection of plates. The calzone was in a nice crust and loaded with cheese and toppings. It was perfectly cooked. Becks and I both enjoyed the calzone and were very satisfied as we finished our lunch.
On a side note, the bathrooms are very clean and well stocked at Decent Pizza with one cool feature, chalkboard walls. Chalk is located by the door in a small holder and patrons are allowed to leave their express themselves in a non-permanent manner. It is much nicer than the usual graffiti that adorns restroom stalls in the Capital City.
