It's possible, so says the Student.

http://www.miamistudent.net/news/community/dine-in-pizza-shop-hopes-to-open-in-oxford-1.1650453

This quote puzzled me:
Quote:
"I would love for a pizza place to come to Oxford if it was good," senior Dave Williams said. "A college town needs to be complete with a good local pizza place, and we don't have one."

Discuss.

How about Brunos and SDS for some good local pizza

Keyword Good...

SDS- fights back especially the next day.
Brunos- is just drinking ballast and filling.

I was thinking SDS among the local 'indies', if you will. Bruno's never really did it for me considering that if you're sober their 'za tastes like something you could get from Kroger. I respect what they have done, though.

Bruno's tastes like cardboard with grease on it, and SDS is only marginally better. (Though the Turkey Gobbler is impossible to beat.)

I'm guessing you have not had SDS in the last few years- the new ownership worked hard on upgrading it - and they succeeded!!!! I encourage everyone to give it a try when you are in town.

I don't know an alum over 30 or kid under 16 who thinks a trip to Oxford is complete without a trip to Bruno's. Today's student was raised on chain pizza and expects all of it to taste like Pizza Hut, Dominos, or Papa John's. That's fine, but boring to me. I like the local pizza joints and I go there for the atmosphere as much as the food. Once the original Bruno's burned a lot of that was lost. The Bruno's I had after the EMU game was better than ever. Now when Greek's was around ...that was awful. Gristle filled sausage and always burnt on the bottom.

I wish Oxford had something like this:

http://www.compolastastypizza.com/ or other Cleveland pizza places like Geraci's, Mama Santa's or Pizzaz

Sounds like Chuck and Senior Dave Williams, have never experienced a fresh Bruno's pizza right out of the oven. You buy the $1.25 slice on the street after drinking, it's not gonna taste good. But you go in there sober, and it's like a fine dining experience.

I used to order a small Brunos to my dorm freshman and soph year a couple times a semester for dinner and I thought it was great. Cheese melted over the top of the toppings? It was a revelation. Most people disagreed with me, but then again, I would rather kick a piece of Brunos across High Street and eat it covered in filth than go to LaRosas.

Sorry to hear that Wink

Just kidding, I will give it a try next time I am in Oxford.

I hope they didn't change the quality of the subs or wings. Some of the best around.

Back in my day at Miami I recall Mac & Joe's, Circle Bar, & SDS being owned by the same person. I also recall seeing on here several years ago that wasn't the case anymore.

As a former townie who is WAY over 30, I can't stand Bruno's! Never could. I've eaten there many times sober, drunk, hung over, in high school, in college, as an alum, pre-fire, post-fire...and I've still not figured out what the attraction is. It's soggy and greasy. That's about it.

SDS used to be fantastic, but slipped over the years. I had one this summer when I was back in town for a visit and really enjoyed it. That said, it's not like it used to be back in the day. But I AM glad to hear that the Turkey Gobbler is still most excellent!

Brunos was .40 cents a slice when I started at Miami. I love Brunos.

Indeed, I never went to Bruno's sober. Perhaps that's the problem! And I haven't been to SDS since the ownership change.

For the record, this is my favorite pizza place. It's two blocks from my apartment.

The brothers who own Skipper's are now the owners of SDS, along with a 3rd guy, who I believe owned Alexander house before it closed.

You are correct sir. And the subs are still terrific- also if you are a fan of chicken salad subs- there's can't be beat- it is a savory chicken salad not sweet.

Agree completely. It's good when you're blasted out of your gourd and also use the pizza as a projectile, otherwise it's not that good.

IMHO, anyone who thinks there is a good pizza anywhere in Oxford has never been to Chicago.
But let's not rejuvenate this old thread again....we beat this horse to death some months ago.

bruno's is vile, and i had it at all levels of sobriety. though, that never stopped me from eating it when drunk, for the experience. the only non-chain oxford pizza i could really stomach was sds.

THAT comment, I completely agree with! I've had the famous Chicago pizzas and have not been impressed with them. And this was IN Chicago at their restaurants. I don't remember them because I care not to and they were too pricey for what was not tasty in the least. No wonder people in Chicago hate New York. NY has the best deep dish pizza, even though Chicago lay claims to the best deep dish around.

New York pizza is great! Just awesome all the way around! Being from the Dayton area, I'm partial to Marion's. But I like all types of crust and am always willing to try out new pizzas from whereever. "You never know what you're gonna get!"
