Dining on a Budget:
With one of the most exciting weekends in football season coming up – Super Bowl XLII – many folks are thinking the same thing:What to eat during the big game?
For an inexpensive and quick meal to serve at your Super Bowl gathering, you can’t go wrong with the $3.99 Pizza Co. in West Covina, (bordering on Baldwin Park.)
The $3.99 Pizza Co. offers just that – a fresh-style cheese pizza for under $5.
When I first heard of this oddly named eatery, I thought like many of my colleagues: How good could it be? Now I say, “Hey, don’t judge a pizza by its price!”
The $3.99 Pizza Co. takes “dining on a budget” to a new level.
Not only can you get a large freshly-rolled-dough cheese pizza for $3.99, plus tax, but if you just scrounged under and between your car seats for some lunch change, you can get a 7″ personal cheese pizza for only $1.99.
On a recent lunch, a few colleagues and I shared a large mushroom and chicken pizza, as well as a side order of jalapeno poppers and seasoned fries.
Well, needless to say, our total was not $3.99, but split amongst two or three people the $13 and change bill didn’t put too much of a dent in my wallet. Toppings are extra, costing from 75 cents to $2.
The jalapeno poppers are made with cheddar cheese, instead of cream cheese (yuck) or monterey jack (best). They’re not as hot as other eateries may serve, but are still yummy.
The seasoned fries are the ones with the kick. These nice big wedges are perfectly sized and seasoned for my taste.
And if you need to feed the family, the eatery offers plenty of low-priced family-sized meals, as well as hot wings, pasta, salads, subs, and more.
Are you ready for some football?
