Imo's Pizza

Seriously?
You St. Louis folks call THIS pizza???? Really???

We had some catered in at work today. Tastes like a saltine cracker with ragu and string cheese. Provel cheese, not mozzarella?

Last time I had Imo's was about 20 years ago. I was seriously wasted in downtown St. Louis and me and the group I was with sent out for pizza and beer at 3am. Delivery guy shows up with an Imo's Pizza and a six pack of warm Lemp Beer. Worst 4th meal evah.

So what's the fascination with this stuff? Please explain it to me.

Minsky's, Fun House, Old Shawnee Pizza I can deal with. This stuff.... hard to even call it pizza.

I worked as the manager at one of the Imo's that was in K.C. back in the day, and darn near everyday I would have to handle a customer complaint call. It was almost always "What in the Hell is this?"
One in particular I remember, this lady told me she wouldn't even feed it to her dog and called it, "A heart attack inducing pile of smelly sh*t on hobo bread".
I had to put up with this constantly, and then the absentee owner would drive over from St. Louis every once and a while and ask "How is everything going - good?"
...and, "Why aren't we selling more pizzas?"
Before I left and moved on I told him, " Hey man, I get it. The whole gourmet thing. It's different, but then that's what you're going for... But, seriously people in general don't really go for that kind of thing around here. If you ask me I would think about changing formats, and selling a more traditional pizza with mozzarella cheese."
He came back with, "I'll never change formats. Imo's will work in Kansas City."
A few months after I left I drove by and noticed he changed formats and was now a Pizza World. Much better pizza, but in the end he still screwed it up and went under.

I am not a fan of Imo's.

If you are in Saint Louis, try Fortel's.

They're pretty proud of their pizza based on their prices.

We had one open up close to the house. I just couldn't get myself to pay that much $$$ for pizza.

Speaking of chain pizzas, we're about to have a Papa Murphy's open near us. It's one of those take-and-bake places. Anyone ever had that?

They have good specials, like small single topping pizzas for $5.

Anyway, for a place called "Fun House" they have the most un-fun rules of any pizza joint. It's a mom and pop joint, and they have signs up literally EVERYWHERE inside telling you what you can and can't do. DON'T SIT IN THIS SECTION, NO BALLOONS, NO DRINKS OUTSIDE, NO SUBSTITUTIONS ON SPECIALS, DON'T SHAKE THE PINBALL MACHINE, DON'T CHANGE THE CHANNEL ON THE TV, etc etc etc.

For a "Fun House" they sure know how to dampen your fun. But the pizza is outstanding.
Love me sum Fun House. Always make a stop in there when im up in KC.

They're okay. Nothing special, imo.

That's a business model I completely don't understand. If I'm gong to bake the pizza, I'll either buy it at the grocery store or I'll make it from scratch. Papa Murphy's seems like none of the convenience of takeout and all of the hassle of making your own.

I agree with this, but it definitely has its fans for whatever reason. My mom was on a Papa Murphy's kick for a while. I think she liked being able to pick it up earlier in the day when she went grocery shopping (we live in the country) then cook it a few hours later.

To me, it's like a glorified frozen pizza.

My family seems to think they're great, because nearly every time we visit, they've either bought a few before we've arrived or suggested it.

Personally, I think they're bland and flavorless. The Take & Bake's at Costco are far superior, IMO, if you're going down that trip.
