Last week, I wrote a blog about eating at one of the best places in town – Tai’s Asian Bistro. As for this week’s blog entry, I wasn’t really planning on blogging about “another” best place in town to eat, but I couldn’t pass it up. I felt the need to get the word out about this great dining place in Columbus, OH.
On any given Monday, if you find yourself craving pizza between the hours of 5pm – 11pm, then it’s time for you to hit up Classic’s Pizza & Sports Bar at Tuttle Mall Crossing. Classic’s has your typical sports bar feel, complete with all the flat screen sports-watching you can handle. If you aren’t into watching sports, you can still enjoy some billiards or casual conversation with some friends. At times the music can be a bit loud (and annoying), but if you read on, the food is definitely worth it.
Now, let’s get to the good part: the pizza. One of my favorite foods of all time happens to be pizza. And, like anyone, we have all had our fair share of “good and bad” pizza. At least I know I have. Classic’s pizza comes in four different ordering sizes: 7-inch, 10-inch, 12-inch and 14-inch. You can’t go wrong with “Classics Pizza”, which is any one-topping plus cheese. There are several specialty pizzas too, including supreme, Hawaiian, major meat, veggie, chicken veggie, barbecue chicken and dimo’s margarita. I have tried all, but the chicken veggie and barbecue chicken. Personally, I don’t think you can go wrong with any kind. The pizza is ALWAYS served HOT and within 15 minutes of ordering. The crust is just right – not too thick and not too thin and the toppings are more than generous. Take a look at the 14-inch pepperoni pizza I ordered last Monday night (see below) - every square inch of the pizza is covered with pepperonis. Classic’s definitely doesn’t skimp when it comes to toppings. Classic’s pizza is comparable to Donato’s, except that I think it tastes better, is fresher and (if you go on Monday Nights) is WAY cheaper!
All in all, Classic’s is a great place to check out if you want to get outside of the OSU campus area and try to some great pizza. The good thing about Monday nights from 5pm-11pm is this: PIZZA is HALF-OFF. So you cannot go wrong with ordering a 14-inch pizza because it will only cost you $6.00. And I don’t think any college student would argue with that price. Plus, as you can see below, my 2nd favorite food is cold leftover pizza. It certainly complements my reading assignments from MHR 854 Economics.
