Theresa's Mixed Nuts: Pizza Transit

Pizza Transit

Sometimes I think my husband really lucked out with me, because I am a cheap date. I'll take gas station nachos and a Slurpee over fine dining any day. He got even luckier, since that cheap date trait has passed on to our daughter. We take the girls out for a special birthday dinner every year. We asked Mariah what she wanted this year, and Jason was disgusted when she said Little Caesars. To him, a proper birthday dinner does not involve a $5 pizza from Little Caesars. So, we compromised. She got pizza, but we decided to try a new to us pizza joint that we heard a lot of good things about called Pizza Transit, which is located in Niles, Michigan.

When we walked in, my inner nerd was screaming with excitement. The whole interior was decorated with an 80's theme!


And then my inner child was screaming even louder when I realized our table was made out of chalkboard paint! They even provided a canister of chalk!


That excitement turned into relief. The service was S-L-O-W, so we ended up coloring the heck out of our table.

Allison even found some chalk paint painted on the walls, and left her review.


The pizza was just O.K. served hot. The girls only ate 1/2 a slice each, but gobbled it up cold the next day.

Even though she isn't a Star Wars fan, we always tease her about being one. We made her pose with Darth Vader on the way out.


Overall, it was a fun experience. I wasn't thrilled with how long it took to get our food since there was only 1 server, and the pizza wasn't stellar, but I'd probably go back again some day. 


What pizza parlor do you think has the best pizza?

  2. Wait she asked for Little Caesars on her birthday? What... I'm on the same side as your husband. The last time they had birthday-worthy pizza was in the 90s

  3. Sounds great! She has enjoyed the day well. This can be seen from her happy face. She will be really excited to see the table marked for her. Pizza looks great!

  8. Looks like the place is more fun than the food. I'm as cheap as can be, rather eat at home.

  9. John's in NYC is the best pizza place I've ever been to, hands down without a doubt (even better than Italy! though I've never tried pizza in Naples, which is supposed to be the best in the world <--someday I will, I hope. :)).

    I've never been to Niles, but hubby said he wanted to go there to see something... I just can't remember what it was, lol

    LOL at the Darth Vader reference. She'll probably laugh when she's 90 about how you guys all teased her with the Star Wars thing (and I think that's really cool, hehe). :)

  12. Too bad they failed on the service and food, because the concept of chalkboard tables and an 80s theme is really good.

  13. That looks really neat. I have to say that my favorite pizza place doesn't have the best pizza, but it's not awful. And it has a play area and it's decorated with artwork by local children. It's also reasonably priced. And all those things, at this point in my life, add up to being worth more than the better tasting pizza that is more expensive and too boring to wait for. Ha. We get better pizza if we call it in and pick it up, but if we are actually eating there, we choose a play place, since pizza tends to take a while sometimes.

  15. My Daughter grew up in the 80s so I am sure she would relate to the decor. I like the chalk table.
