Today we’re going to be looking at West Main Pizza, located in Jefferson City, Mo. It is a pizza place located on West Main street. Although I have not been there in a while, I do enjoy it, so that is why I am going to review it. This series will probably be a weekly series in which I rank a restaraunt on different levels: Taste of food, price of food, service of waiters, location/convenience, and atmosphere. For each level they get a checkmark on, they get a star. There is also an extra credit section if there is something that doesn’t fit into any other category, but is a great or exciting part. Now, let’s dive into West Main Pizza!
Taste of Food
This is obviously a pizza place, hence the name: West Main Pizza. Their pizza is incredible. The cheese streches in just the right way, and the sauce is perfect. The crust is amazing too. The pizza is large, so for my family, which is a family of six, we get one pizza and that’s plenty. They also have some other items which I have never gotten. As far as drinks go, they have soda and water and that is about all. They do have refillable soda and quite a variety of sodas as well. Overall, West Main definetely gets a star for the taste.
Price of Food
Next up is the price. This one is trickier. The 12” is $7.99, the 14” is $11.99, and the 16” is $14.99. But that’s if you only want cheese. For my family that is fine, because most of us are vegetarian, but if you want meat or any other topping, the price get’s a lot higher. For every one extra topping you buy, it’s $0.65. Although it’s not much, the price adds up. For their signature/speciality pizzas, the price is much higher. It ranges from $10-$20 for a signature/specialty pizza. As far as drinks go, they are $1.84 per drink. I think that’s a bit pricey, but overall I think the price is worth it so this gets a checkmark from me.
Service of Waiters
This will probably be a bit shorter. The service is good. All the waiters are basically friendly. It is fairly fast service, which is nice for a higher-end pizza place. This gets a check from me, although there wasn’t really much to talk about.
Once again this is a shorter category. It’s located in the west side of town near memorial park and West Elementary School. There is no where in Jeff that it is too far away from. As far as convenience goes, it is a more sit down type of experience than some other pizza places. This means that it is not very good for a quick stop. Overall, this gets a check from me as well.
The atmosphere here is one of the best parts. It feels so calm and peaceful, like it would at home. It doesn’t feel like it’s trying to be a big exciting place, just a place that feels nice. It’s not usually super busy there, and when it is then it is normally fine because they have outdoor seating. This checkmark from me for sure!
Yay! You got some extra credit points for something! It is……. The Challenge Pizza!!! This is something that can really add to the experience. For $40.00, which is A LOT of money for a pizza, you can buy a 26” pizza. You have an hour to finish the pizza. If you finish it you get:
- The meal free
- A cool t-shirt
- Your name on the Wall of Fame(only 6 people have made it last I checked)
- THE JACKPOT(which is a bunch of money)
This is definitely worth a half star!!
West Main Pizza….you are the first of many to be judged. WIth your outstanding pizza, high prices but reasonable for the result, incredible service, a great location, an amazing atmosphere, plus a great challenge, you have earned:
5 ½ STARS OUT OF 6!!!!
