I'm calling 311 on Father and Sons tomorrow...

Forums:

Their dumpster has been overflowing for weeks. They probably stopped paying for trash pick-up. I can't wait for them to go out of business. They are SO NASTY.

Gold is the new silver. Must I tell you everything?

You obviously haven't tried their cockroach Stromboli. To. die. for... Literally.

When the king speaks, fishtown.us would be wise to listen.

I actually like their pizza, but I love greasy pizza.

Ugh.

CrustyZombie and I were standing in there one time, waiting for our slices to get heated, you could see the guy in the back making pizzas. He had a cigarette in his mouth and never stopped to ash it.

And that free standing ATM in the middle of the parking lot? Is that for drug deal convenience?

Maybe I'm in the minority but nothing sets a pizza off quite like a little bit of Newport ash.

If you are concerned about food quality, wouldnt the health department be better?

F&S is filthy, but their pizza isn't bad. Every restaurant is filthy to a degree, some places just hide it better than others. Your best option is to just start going to Franco's.

Heh when I was a kid, wait staff and the cooks all had lit cigarettes while they were working.

I'm not calling the Health Dept., I don't wanna ruin anyone's greasy pizza option. Just want them to get rid of their trash.

I'm just concerned about the cats and rats in the dumpster. Pizza all over the ground. After it filled up, they started putting the bags on top. Now there just all over the ground.

If you can't get a clear answer from the manager, contact 311. Overflowing Dumpster not being picked up. Give the precise building address. Make sure you hang on to the tracking number you get from 311, that's your only way to find out what happened to your ticket.

You can do it online at phila.gov

The Health Department does random inspections on its own quite often, they also look at the garbage out back when they do their surveys.

I've ordered from F&S and I like them, but we don't need more garbage floating around the streets, either. Bin lids are supposed to be closed and preferably locked at all times.

Just recieved a call back from the manager. He really wanted me to post how sorry he is because the Dumpster people cant come out til Monday morning. he said that if i had called before 9am today they would have had a truck for today. he is extremely sorry and realizes that it does look a mess but the dumpster company only has four trucks which are always behind in their workload. He was a very nice man. And I get a free Pizza Woo- Hoo. I love the Father and Sons Jumbo Pie!

When I used to eat at the Acrapolis my usual waitress used to always have a cig dangling from her mouth as she served our food. I'm not a smoker, but I miss those days, haven't been there in about 8 or so years....

Their pies are good when you get a good one. Usually. Thin crust, enough cheese, greasy enough. But once at Christmas time we ordered like five pies for Atlantis, and they were crappy. I think its hit or miss with them.

Father and Sons is completely hit or miss. I've been there enough but I still don't know for certain which cooks make a good pie and which do not. one day it can be some of the best pizza in the city, the next day I'd find a microwaveable frozen pizza more appetizing.

I'm glad he's sorry, but this is unacceptable. The dumpster company needs to pick up the trash on time, consistently. Not having enough trucks is not an accetpable excuse.

Well, buy them some trucks Stein. He knows it is unacceptable. What do you want? It's a good thing, take it as such. Christ, I was happy with the free pie and a decent conversation with a very honest man

I dig Father and Sons. It's decent thin crust pizza.

I like Key Pizza the best, though. It grew on me.

Tracey, nice job!

IMO worst pizzeria pizza I have had, ever, even counting those years in TX

Empty factories to the east and all our waste
The shape of things that came shows on the broken workers face

They were the only place I would get pizza from before Franco's opened.

Gordon Ramsey to the rescue. Have this pizza joint turned around in no time.

Here I sit broken hearted, paid a quarter and only farted.
