Little Caesars on Cedar St in Holt.

Little Caesars on Cedar St in Holt.

It’s been a long time since I’ve eaten at Little Caesars.  The last time, I actually had to order a pizza.  They didn’t have the $5 Hot-N-Ready.  I needed to run to the post office this morning and the closest post office is in Holt.  I told J I was running and she decided to tag along.  It was about lunch time so why not just stop somewhere.  I asked what she wanted and two weird things happened.  1.) She didn’t say “I don’t know.”  2.) She said she was hungry for pizza and suggested Little Caesars.  I made my run to the post office and fought some pretty heavy traffic for Holt to get back to Little Caesars.

Little Caesars is in a tiny little building on Cedar St near Aurelius.  The surprising thing is that there is a drive thru window.  There were five or six cars in the drive thru line so we parked and I headed into the building.  The shop is strictly carry out.  The building is pretty much just the kitchen.   There is a small counter near the front of the building and a couple chairs if you have to wait.  There was a family there waiting for a pizza, so I was wondering if I’d even be able to get a “Hot-N-Ready” pizza.  There were two people working and both were in the back frantically making pies.  The phones were ringing, there was a line in the drive thru and then, there was me waiting at the counter.  One of the girls stopped making pizzas and came to the front to ask what I wanted.  Fortunately, I just wanted a cheese pizza and there were two of them sitting there waiting to go.  She turned around, grabbed a pizza, and handed it to me.  With tax, the pie cost me $5.20. 

We grabbed the pizza and jumped back into the ridiculous Holt traffic.  When we got home, we opened up the box and got just what I was expecting.  It wasn’t the best pizza I ever had.  The cust was soft and floppy, but the cheese was nice and golden brown.  The pizza was alright and more than worth the five bucks we paid for it.  It’s one of those, you get what you pay for.  It was good, it was filling, but not the best pizza I’ve ever had.  Growing up, we always looked forward to getting Little Caesars.  This isn’t what I remember.  I know the chain has changed over the last twenty years and it’s been at least five or six since I’ve even gotten a pizza from there.  A five dollar pizza is a great option, but not a first choice if you’re looking for great pizza.
