Stobie's Pizza

Dave Van Dyck/Gazette

Here's a familiar situation: it's late at night and you and your friends have just left the bar and all feel a little hungry. Unfortunately, one friend wants Sammy's while another wants Pita Pit. What do you do? When it comes down to deciding on one place to go, most people are agreeable on pizza as a late night stomach filler. OK, so now you have managed to sell everyone on pizza, but where do you go? Richmond Row is littered with numerous pizza joints, like Cousin Vinnies, Eddies, Planet Pizza, The Missing Slice and even a convenience store which sells slices. They are all pretty good, but none of them can compete with Stobie's. Stobie's has owned London's late-night and lunch-slice crown for years and for good reason. To begin with, there is the size of their slices. Each piece is huge. It is extremely rare that you will feel like you didn't get a big enough cut. When compared to other places, Stobie's is definitely the biggest. Secondly, there is the price. Until 4 p.m. you can enjoy pepperoni or vegetarian slices for $2 and others, such as Hawaiian, for $2.50. After 4 p.m., the price only jumps up to $3, keeping it very cheap, again, given the size. Other factors which make Stobie's the best slice in town are the freshness of every slice and the speed at which you are served. No matter how long the line appears, you rarely wait more than five minutes for your cheesy prize, and it's always piping hot with fresh toppings. Finally, the last factor is the employees. All of the late-night staff are great and generally in a good mood. Richmond Row has a lot of good places to stop for a quick bite and lazy people usually just end up going to the closest one. However, Stobie's seems to be the one place people are willing to make the added trek to time and time again. Stobie's deserves all the credit it gets and is by far the best slice in town.
