I’ve only been to Dominick’s of Parkville a handful of times. But, each time keeps feeling like the first. It’s that good, novel, and wonderful.
The first time, only a few months ago, I ordered the Buffalo Chicken and White Vegetable, and they were both out of this world. Especially the latter. I can say that it’s one of the best veggie pies/slices I’ve ever had the privilege of eating.
And the smells. There’s a smell that comes from their store and from the carry out boxes that’s to die for. To me, it’s a combination of basil, cheese, sauce, and something else I can’t quite put my finger on. Maybe I’m not meant to know?
For this visit, I ordered a Cheese and a Bacon Cheeseburger. That smell was back and better than ever. How the cheese overpowered bacon and burger meat, I don’t know. But that’s really saying something. I was hoping the scents would stay in my car longer.
How beautiful do those pies look?
Even more importantly, how do they taste?
Well the cheese tastes exactly how a cheese pie should. It brings me back to the types of pizza I was eating when I was a kid. It’s more than comfort food. It’s just comforting. It makes me feel good. And the crust is the perfect combination of soft, with a little crunch to it. And the smell helps!
The Bacon Cheeseburger had a lot to live up to after the cheese, but it delivered. The meats tasted fresh. And they poured a lot on top of the mozzarella and cheddar cheese. This was a wonderful combination all around. I find cheddar to be an underrated topping on pizzas.
Besides the taste and smell, most important of all, is their customer service. They knocked it out of the park again. I’ve always had the inkling to order a large and a medium to go. I keep forgetting that if I ordered two mediums, that I’m getting a savings of over $10. Now I don’t always remember this fact, but they do! And they’ve been quick to remind me of this detail. Ladies and gentleman, that’s serving your customers at its finest. They’re not obligated to remind me of this fact, but they choose to anyway. That will make me keep coming back and supporting their amazing local business. Thanks so much guys. And it makes the pizza taste better too! They’ve been doing this for over 50 years and that’s one of the reasons why. Class.
Now, I haven’t been to their Perry Hall or Lutherville locations, and that will come in time. I can only assume I’ll get the same world class treatment there.
Take good care and enjoy the weekend.
