is little caesar's still out there?

I haven't seen a LC's (sorry, I still have trouble spelling it) in years, except in a Kmart...where everything was premade and frozen. I do rmember at one time they were pretty good pizza, but I live in a college town where everyone eats a lot of pizza. Just wondering...

    It is in Knoxville and they have a all you can eat for lunch. I have never been there but I understand it has pizza less than mediocre.

    We have them in Louisville and I agree with Paul's evaluation.
    When I left SoCal in 2000 we had several in the area where I lived.

    They are still around and still as bad as ever. I believe the company is based in Detroit, as their founder was/still is the owner of the Detroit Tigers and Red Wings. You see their advertisements throughout their respective stadium/arena.

    There is still at least one in New York City, on a major shopping thoroughfare in Manhattan, on 14th Street...it does delivery, too. There always seems to be a bunch of people there, but the average age tends towards the youngsters in school, I think.

    It's always been utterly crap pizza, but in the early '90s, they did some excellent TV ads. There were still some LCs in Albuquerque as of three years ago at least.

    They have a lot of them in the Oklahoma City Metro. We don't go but they are lots of them around if we wanted to.

    Yes, they still exist, but for the life of me I can't understand why anyone would want to eat the junk that they serve.

    Good ole Plattsburgh (NY) has a L/C. Haven't been there in years, generally lousy pizza.

    The concensus opinion on this thread truly amazes me.

    Of course, there is still time to hear from a Little Ceasar's employee preaching the quality of his life's work.

    There are still some around in K-mart stores, on long island. Recently they have been redoing our K-marts over and taking out the cafes, though I believe 1 is still little caesars.

    I saw one In Rutland, VT a few weeks ago right across the street from a Ponderossa, I thought I must have drove through a crack in the time continuum that transported me back to 1987.

    They're still around and headquartered in Detroit. Seems like the aren't as many as there were at on time in the Motor City though. Their latest sales gimmick is to offer a large pepperoni & cheese pizza for $5 and it's always ready. No ordering. Just walk in and get yours, although as most have said, I don't know why you would considering the abismal quality.

    Score: Roughly 20 to zero. I'm not surprised.

    I have never endured a saltier insult than my one LC pizza.

    That is a very negative score for LC.

    They must have a good banker to be able to endure. I never see very much business at their establishment in Knoxville.

    What's interesting to me is that Illitch, one of the current owners of the Tigers, was preceeded by Tom Monaghan, who owned them from 1983-1992. Monaghan founded Dominos.

    Apparently, then, we can determine that Detroit is the home of crappy pizza? If Illitch sells the team to Papa John, then we know something is up!

    I believe there is a Little Caesar's still open in Cookeville, TN. It shut down for several years then re-opened 4 or 5 years ago.

    I read somewhere the Papa John's franchises had really hurt Little Caesar's.

    We still have 2 LCs around Peoria. When they were advertising "Pizza! Pizza!", their reputation always was that the total toppings they put on both pizzas were the same quantity you would get on one pizza at any other place. It has been years since I have had one, but any time I go down Sterling Avenue (a main drag) in the afternoon, they have an employee standing out by the street (in front of the strip mall where they have one of their locations) holding a sign for their $5 "always ready" pizza. I think they just hired him to hold the sign and not do any other work. I have always wondered who would ever want a pizza that was "always ready", since I figure that to keep one hot, it would have to be sitting on a steam table getting soggy, be drying out in a low-temp oven, or they would have to zap it in a micro and toughen the crust up, none of which would do any good for an already poor pizza.

    Yes, so tread lightly. Don't make any sudden moves if you suddenly find yourself face to face with one. Play dead.

    Okay,okay, I just asked a question. I don't remember them being great, although when I was in 9th grade, it seemed okay. But, we have matured somewhat since then. The interesting part is that at the bottom of this page, there is a banner for either a $50 Papa John's pizza card or a $250 PJ's gift card

    Papa John's is a major player in the Louisville Metro area. It is no accident that the University of Louisville Football team named their stadium (new) Papa John's Stadium. The Corporation recently surpassed UPS and Ford as the largest charitable donor in the city. KFC or rather YUM is in the top 10 also. These guys know "where their bread is buttered"...So to speak!

    We still have a LC here in Versailles, KY, and the $5 hot 'n ready large pepperoni pizza isn't terrible. It's not "good", but it's also not horrible. It comes in handy when you have to feed a group of kids. That "crazy bread" though YUCK!
    The pizza pickins are slim pickins here: LC, Pizza Hut, and Papa John's. The Dominoes went out of business (it was foul). Other fast food has not fared well here either --- KFC and Famous Recipe are long gone. We've had an explosion of non-chain Mexican restaurants though, and that is a good thing!

    Dude, I LOVE the crazy bread! I dunno if the Little Caesar's in Canada are any different than the ones in the US, but I don't mind them. I just find their pizzas are a little boring. As far as chain pizza goes up here, I think that Pizza Pizza has the best and most "exotic" pizza varieties.

    If Little Caesar's has the best chain pizza in Canada, you have my sympathy. And I hope you have some really fantastic (compared to Little Caesar's) non-chain pizza up there!

    Oh no, Little Caesar's is far from the best. Pizza Pizzais another chain entirely, only in Ontario. I recommend it highly to anyone who travels up here.
