BENNINGTON, VERMONT -- I came back to college a week early for Residence Advisor training. After a long week of training, our boss took us out to grab some dinner at Pizza Hut courtesy of the college. There was about 15 of us in all. Pretty much every restaurant I've frequented in Bennington has had the same reaction to a group of college kids entering - a deer-in-the-headlights look. Understandable. Some college kids have a reputation for being rowdy and rude. However, the two servers that waited on us acted genuinely happy to help us out.
They seated us quickly, laughed and joked with us, and gave us some suggestions as to how much pizza to order to take care of everyone in our party. We were brought some ranch pizza dippers free of charge, our glasses were quickly refilled, and the servers even joined in on conversation. The food was hot and exactly as ordered. Even though our boss put a tip on the college card, we all made a big pile of dollar bills for them on the table, too. It was an excellent experience. Thanks, Bennington Pizza Hut - you rock!
NORTH SYRACUSE, NEW YORK -- OK. I went to Pizza Hut about 2 months ago and ordered in. We had a supreme pizza that came out of the kitchen and it was delicious. Fresh veggies, crust and sauce was great. No complaints there. But two weeks later I order a supreme pizza takeout which cost me $16. I get the pizza and it looked like it was cooked about an hour ago and all they did was re-heat it and throw some veggies on it.
I then noticed they have pre-made pizza's in their warmer and I can guarantee you some lazy ass threw some vegs on one of those old things and sold it to me. Eat in, yes. Take out - NEVER! To all Pizza Hut managers... If someone orders a takeout, make it fresh please, especially for the price you're charging.
TOWSON, MARYLAND -- Manager disrespectful. I truly had a bad experience. The first was a Book It pizza I ordered for my granddaughter. I ordered a sausage pizza and they gave us cheese but took it back. Then instead of giving us a new sausage pizza, they threw some sausage on top of the cheese pizza and gave it back. I didn't say anything and accepted it instead of arguing for a new one which they should have given us. Then while biting my second slice of my stuffed crust sausage pizza I found a piece of hair in my pizza. When I reported it the waitress asked me if I wanted a new pizza or my ticket discounted.
This was the first time I ever had this happen so I didn't know what to say. I asked how much was the discount cause I really wasn't feeling another chance of hair. She asked at the counter and I heard the manager say, "She's not getting it for free." I wasn't looking for free. We did order the pizza and we did have three and a half slices before I saw the hair. It was clearly under the undisturbed cheese, not on top. He made me feel as if I put it there to get free food which I didn't. I didn't want free just courtesy.
WEAVERVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA -- Before the store was to open I saw a woman come from the inside out, to walk a dog. This was at 10 am, realizing it wasn't time to open I wondered why. When she went back inside with the dog, a Scottish terrier, I went to ask why a dog was inside. It is a public place, the so called manager began to yell at me like it wasn't my business, WRONG. She was going to call police but I couldn't understand why since she was the only one who was breaking the rules. In the past I service their business but not now. I think the manager of that store was the real dog!
MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN -- Ordered 2 large pan pizzas online, for delivery at 6:04 pm. My ticket number is ** for the Pizza Hut on 111th and Silver Spring. Received 2 hand tossed pizzas and the greasiest cheese sticks in a bag no less. Also, was to be delivered by 8:04 pm and I received it at 8:40 pm. This not the first time I've received the wrong pizza or wrong crust. I'm beginning to believe my business is not wanted because as many times I've complained to local store, obviously nothing happens. Would at least appreciate the acknowledgement of said mistakes, instead questioning me. Would like to hear back from someone on this matter and would also like a credit. Thank you.
BROCKPORT, NEW YORK -- I ordered a 3 cheese stuffed crust pizza for my family for dinner. When the pizza arrived the crust was burnt, the dough on top was not cooked enough. The crust that was supposed to have cheese in it was replaced with air pockets. When picked up, the pizza went totally south, there were areas where there was no cheese at all, and it looked as though the pizza had been sitting for a few hours, and definitely did not taste fresh. When I called to complain the young man on the phone argued with me and told me that he looked at the pizza before it went out and it was fine. I had to argue with him to get compensated. I was offered 20 dollars credit for another time.
First of all, I would like to be compensated on the same day that our dinner was ruined not on another day. Secondly, with unprofessional attitudes such as his, I wouldn't put it past them to spit on the pizza. This wasn't the first food fiasco, let's talk about the 60 undercooked chicken wings I ordered last year. They can keep their 20 dollar credit.
MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE -- I went to Pizza Hut on Austin Peay and Covington Pike in Memphis, TN to order some pizzas. As I was ordering, I noticed the young man preparing the pizzas was not wearing gloves. I asked the young lady at the register do they always prepare pizzas with no gloves and she stated that sometimes they wear them and sometimes not.
I proceeded to walk away and I heard one of the young ladies laughing and the young man preparing the pizzas making a comment about I can go somewhere else and order pizzas, in which I did anyway. I think there should be a policy in place for people handling different items should always wear gloves. I will not be going back to this location.
CONVERSE, TEXAS -- No food on the buffet table, waitress asked what you want, mgr. and 2 other employees were reading the paper instead of putting pizzas out for lunch. When they noticed I was taking pics they decided to put pizzas in the oven - by then my lunch break was over. Salad bar was also nasty.
I would not recommend this Pizza Hut, they need a new manager that is going to take charge and make sure that the products you are paying for are out in a timely manner - not be reading the paper. Upon checking out the waitress asked me how everything was so I told her and she just nodded and said "Yeah I know, the food right?" Sorry place and sorry management, he needs to be replaced - he does nothing. I have pictures if needed.
ALEXANDRIA, VIRGINIA -- Today I ordered two separate times from Pizza Hut both paid with credit. As the first delivery man handed me the order a personal pan with wings, he hands me the receipt & my copy, looks at it & hands it back to me asking for a tip! Now I'm not a horrible cheap person. I have no problem giving a tip if the service is outstanding or the weather is bad but to be ASKED for a tip is by far the rudest thing to ask! Luckily I had some cash & handed it to the man very unpleased.
Second order was during the evening - another personal pan & a medium pizza. Same transaction - paid by credit, handed receipt, having the driver hand it right back to me asking for tip (not the same guy) - at this point I'm pissed! Pizza Hut needs to address this issue with their drivers do NOT ask for tips unless the customer willingly gives it. I told the man no because the cash I did have gone to the previous guy. He once again handed me the receipt & asked me to put $0.00 in the tip spot, angered I put the amount & slammed the door. Next time (if there is one) this happens I will personally call the store while the driver is present & send it a complaint!
ST ANN, MISSOURI -- First off what pizza place can not break a hundred dollar bill and if for whatever reason they can't why would you be rude about it. Most customers would already be upset that you couldn't break their hundred dollar bill but you have people stupid enough to be rude and upset the customer even more. What kind of people do you have working for you?
I order from Pizza Hut at least once or twice a month and will no longer go to this location if any at all because of the way I was treated by that cashier who gets paid to take care of your customers. I have been a manager in food service for almost 10 years and know that taking care of a customer is the most important thing, without the customers business you wouldn't have a job at all.
