Delivery showdown

Knox students are going to need brain food during this upcoming finals weekend. With that in mind, The Knox Student researched some popular Galesburg pizza delivery options.

A favorite is Papa John’s. Delivery takes under an hour (usually), and pricing is fairly good. In fact, with a student discount card, large one-topping pizzas are $7 each. Don’t have a card? Find a friend who has one and give his or her name on the order. They also have garlic butter dip and jalapeños in every box. Dare each other to eat the peppers and give the garlic butter to that one friend who doesn’t think it’s gross. Win, win, win.

Domino’s? Just don’t get Domino’s. Its saltiness does not make up for its cheaper price. You will be drinking water all night. Therefore, you will be using the bathroom all night. Therefore, you will be wasting precious study time. Just don’t.

Here’s another bad idea: Alfano’s Pizzeria. The only good thing on the menu is the stuffed breadstick. Knox students call it the “pizza vagina” because it looks like one. Don’t call it that when you place your order, though; they get mad. Everyone who orders it when drunk thinks it’s the best thing ever. Don’t even consider getting it sober because you will be disappointed.

There really isn’t anywhere else in proximity to Knox that delivers good pizza besides Pizza Hut. Their food is great but only a good option if your food costs more than $8. They don’t deliver otherwise.

The winner here is clearly Papa John’s. So, go find your friend with the discount card and get to studying.
