While I love Skipper's and Mac & Joe's, Miami has nine home hockey games in the next six weeks and I'd like to hit a pizza place before one of the games.

Which Oxford non-chain would you guys/gals recommend?

I think the standard answer here is Bruno's, though I never understood the love for it.

A good pie is the only thing Oxford is really missing.

Bruno's: Loved by many. I don't get it.
Will's: Stay away
SDS: Good deals for broke college kids, but pretty on par with chains.


DP Dough (Calzone, technically a chain but oh well): Greasy, fattening, goodness. To be fair I've never had it sober, but there is nothing better at 3am, so it has to be decent at 6pm, right?

Oxford doesn't have a signature pizza.

I hear Will's is terrible and Brunos was always average at best. I wouldn't skip Skipper's or Mac and Joe's or B&D for one of the unimpressive local joints.

Because it is not 50 cents a slice anymore, old man!

SDS Chicago style is pretty stellar. Problem is they have no dine-in hence the reason why Bruno's was great. Plus as my manly friend Johnny Mac said, it was $.50 for a slice and .$50 for a Coke. I spent many a lunch and dinner at the joint as a broke high school kid and college kid.

Any of you remember Bruno's West aside from Sledge? Arcade, pool tables, juke box with "It Takes Two" blaring and Bruno's pizza.

I think it was 40 cents a slice while I was at Miami until my senior year. The glory days Ron Harper, Ron Hunter, Eric Newsome, Terry Morris, George Swarn, and some big OL we now refer to as Coach Dan D! (1983-1987!)

The good ol' days. If you left the bars at the end of the night with two quarters in your pocket you were good to go!

I assume you are more sober when you eat it now! That might be part of the reason...

I'll second the SDS Chicago style. Good pizza. They used to have a good deal on Thursdays with a large pizza and two large drinks.

But that doesn't solve your problem unless you pick it up and eat it in your car...

"Ball carrier was Swarn."

I can still hear that announcement clear as day when I think back to childhood in Oxford.
