Little Caesars...home of the $5 Hot-N-Ready...sometimes

Little Caesars...home of the $5 Hot-N-Ready...sometimes

I didn’t realize that we actually took Little Caesars for granted until this past weekend.  It was actually quite funny.  My brother was so excited about Little Caesars opening up in Kankakee (IL) again.  There used to be a store when we were little and we’d eat there every now and then.  That was when they did their two pizza deal.  Eventually, the store dropped the franchise and became a shop called “Cheeser! Cheeser!”  It was pretty much Little Caesars, but not Little Caesars.  Within in the last few months, the Little Caesars franchise moved back in and they had this deal that was only available in Kankakee called “$5 Hot and Ready.”  J and I laughed a little when my brother was telling us about this.  I have been getting “Hot-N-Ready” pizzas for five years and didn’t realize that not everyone had heard of it. 

For some reason, I was craving pizza for lunch.  I still have a frozen Giordano’s in my freezer, but didn’t feel like cooking.  J suggested running to Little Caesars and getting pizza.  Five bucks is a great deal for lunch and I had a few other errands to run so I went for it.

Little Caesars has multiple locations in Lansing.  They’re all carry-out and they’re all pretty much in strip malls.  The one I chose today is near the corner of Jolly Road and Cedar Street.

I walked in to the small shop around 1:30.  I asked for a large pizza.  The kid working said they don’t keep cheese pizzas “Hot-N-Ready”  Huh?  I’ve walked in and gotten large cheese pizzas at other locations and really off peak times, so not having a large cheese ready was a little surprising and a little annoying.  I chose Little Caesars for the convenience.  I didn’t expect to be waiting, but I told him to put the pizza in and I’d wait.  I grabbed a copy of City Pulse and took a seat on the lone plastic chair while my pizza was being made.

It seemed like it took longer than ten minutes, but I don’t know that for sure.  I didn’t watch my clock to see.  Eventually, it came out of the oven and I was on my way home with a really hot pizza. 

The Little Caesars of today is not the Little Caesars I remember as a kid.  I don’t know what’s different, but now it tastes like all the other chain joints.  The top is a greasy mess which is a sign of inferior cheese, but what do you expect for five bucks.  I go to Little Caesars not because they have the greatest pizza in the world but because they have the greatest deal in the world.  I’ll take a pizza every now and then that’s just ok for that price.  Not getting a “Hot-N-Ready” this time was frustrating, but I still can’t complain about the price….and right now, that’s the most important thing.

She seemed confused by the concept of statistical proof.
Drug rehabilitation means more than learning how to stay clean and sober.
Since many battling addictions lose their job over them,
it’s good to know that there is a way to let your job give you a helping hand.
