What are you talking about?? That's the best pizza ever made, hands-down. And the rectangle pizza was amazing. You can still find the occasional Little Caesar around, but don't try the ones inside stores like Walmart or K-Mart; those are cheap ripoffs!

Little Caesar got better the one's in k-marts are not cheap ripoffs.

I thought for the money, you couldn't beat it. You could get 2 pizzas LOADED for $10. One of the pizzas was plenty as a meal for a guy. The popular complaint about them was that the toppings would be cold because they weren't cooked with the pizza.

There was one that opened up in a shopping center near my house and the day of the grand opening, the mascot was standing outside of the Wal-mart in the shopping center and he was shaking all the kids' hands.

Little Caesar's was always good pizza, and they're still around (but not like they used to be) in areas like Charlotte, NC (there are at least 2 locations) and Johnson City, TN.

Do any of you remember them putting the cheese on the crust alonng with garlic butter? I loved that. I was so excited to see that they got one in Rochester, MN but when I asked for the cheese on the crust they looked at me like I was from another planet. They called it Parmesan Cheese crust. It was just like the bread sticks but all around the crust. The problem I find no with this once great pizza chain is they are all franchises now and not corporate stores. In my opinion this is a downside. The product and the customer service suffer.

They are all over Wisconsin and they suck now. They are already made, so they aren't as fresh, and they don't do the parmesan seasoning anymore. Truly crappy pizza now. In the early to late 90's it was great.

I go to the one in Wichita all the time. During lunch, you can get a medium pepperoni pizza for $5 a piece. It's damn excellent too. Pure tasty-ness.

They used to be great...I havn't been to one in years there is none near by.....they don't have pizza pizza anymore that was the best part.

There are still some around here on the east coast. When I was a kid, we loved Little Caesars. For some reason, I liked how it didn't come in a box, but instead it was on cardboard covered with a paper packaging. You ripped open that package and got hit with some nice pizza steam!
Stewie - September 04, 2008 - Report this comment
This is by far the most underated pizza anywhere. Don't get me wrong, Pizza Hut, Papa John's and Domino's are all good but none of them compare to Little Caeser's! And their Crazy Bread and Sauce is good too! We need to open more of these places back up. The question of why this place hasn't gotten the respect it deserves remains without an answer.

A Little Caesar's just resurfaced in our neck of the Atlanta suburbs and we couldn't believe it. I think LC got me thru graduate school in the early 90s. It really isn't as good as Papa John's, but it's cheap and good enough. Love the crazy bread.

They are all over the place in East TN. They were great in the late 90s, but now with the "Hot and Ready" practice, it's hard to get a "Hot and Fresh."
Sharon - January 16, 2009 - Report this comment
We used to LOVE the crazy bread (with or without pepperoni)... This used to be the sleepover feasting food! It was so, so good - but have changed a ton! I don't like them as much anymore!
Scott Hines - January 29, 2009 - Report this comment
Little Caesars now has about 3,000 stores around the USA and several other countries. The ($5.55) Hot-N-Ready pizzas in the Hickory, NC area are always fresh and hot. I have not found a better pizza than theirs at any competitor at any price. The stores are so busy the pepperoni pizzas appear to be going out the door too fast to get old.
Abe - March 18, 2009 - Report this comment
If you live in Michigan you take Little Caesar's for granted. The Hot N' Ready is low quality, but if you order a pizza with toppings the quality is reminiscent of previous decades! If you want really expensive pizza, go buy it from Comerica Park or Joe Louis Arena, same great brand three times more.

In the 80's and early 90's was when Little Ceasars had good pizza. Now it isn't as good as it used to be.

Yeah, we have a Litte Caesar's near us in Atlanta now, and to my dissapointment, they don't seem to be as nearly as tasty as they used to be. Did something change? On a side note, anybody remember how they used to seve their beverages in that family-style carton that zipped open and closed? Loved it!

does anyone remember their white chocolate raviolis? They looked just like ravioli but had wwhite chocolate as the "pasta" and milk chocolate filling. Soooooo goood!
Brooks - November 03, 2009 - Report this comment
I had completely forgotten about those raviolis until now! Wow, what a memory! I remember so many Friday nights when we'd head down to Little Ceasar's. The paper pizza boxes, the chocolate raviolis, it was awesome. Nothing really like that today, at least that I know of.
T - November 10, 2009 - Report this comment
I was just coming here to ask if anyone remembered those! When I first bought them, I remember standing in line with my dad ordering the pizza late one night on movie night. I saw chocolate ravioli on the menu and I begged him to order some. I thought it would REALLY be real chocolate-filled ravioli! After I got over my initial shock and disappointment, they tasted really good. But they weren't what I thought they were going to be.

In Canada, Little Ceasars tastes like CRAP but back home in the States it's so delicious! Mmm. You can still buy a slice (which is like 1/4 of a pizza) for a buck.

We have them on almost every corner here. Hot n' Ready is great! They are round & in a hard box now but can't beat the $5 price. Lots of cheese & the sauce is more flavorful now. Cheesy sticks are out of this world. Pizza Hut went downhill when they teamed up with Wingstreet here in Wichita Falls. Love me some LC!!
The Commish - April 17, 2010 - Report this comment
You don't sell pizza at that price without cutting some corners. Their product is terrible. We only get Little Caesars when teenagers come over, because they'll eat anything.
The Commish is the Dish!!! - April 18, 2010 - Report this comment
The Commish is the dish, alright. Great answer!! Little Caesar is not pizza, but white bread with catcup and rotten cheese food! The only reall pizza is the ones made my real WOPs in New Jersey and New York City. Jersey shore, reall ghenia stuff. Go over to the Dutch Mill Donuts site everyone. That's where you'll find some reall great folks!!!

Never big on the pizza, but for a very short time they had chocolate ravioli dessert, white chocolate "pasta" shells filled with milk chocolate, that was heavenly.

We had one right down the street from us and they not only had pizza and crazy bread but sandwiches(hoagies) and salads..I remeber their hoagies were actually on these parmesan crusted flatbreads(they were the BOMB)and obviously way before their time with that cuz now flatbreads are everywhere! I had the new little caesar pizza but it just wasnt as good as when I was 8 in the summer (SIGH)

Chocolate Ravioli is something odd, I will admit. And I'm sorry to tell you guys this, but Little Caears pizza is Shiit! Try real New Jersey pizza made by real WOPs! The only way to go. "I want to take you in my arms and take you away Amanda." You like the song by the rock band Boston?

A Little Ceasars opened up a few years ago here, in central NY. It's not too bad, we get it when were having a party and need a lot of pizza for a low price. Nothing beats their dipping sauces Though, I just love their Buffalo Ranch sauce. We have some of the best pizza here, and once in awhile it sounds good. When I was youngerin the early 90's my brother worked at 1 when they 1st opened, and we got to go to a grand opening party, they were giving out Little Ceasar, finger puppets. I think I still have one laying around.

I am in Minnesota and I was in different parts of Mn in the 80s, my boyfriend works at a Little Ceasars NOW, and they sell five dollar pizzas and crazy bread wich IS in fact cut up rolled pizza dough slices, BUT I recall in the 80s and even early 90s they sold pepperoni bread with mini pepperonis inside sliced crazy bread.THAT was awesome.I always got the two square pizzas at once, Pizza Pizza, it tasted alot better fresh. They never compared to Godfathers Pizza, but it was a good deal if you needed alot of food fast.Still is.

LOVED the Chocolate Ravioli, although I had only one opportunity to eat it. I was thinking the white chocolate part was a fondant with a dark chocolate truffle filling... egads, now I'm daydreaming about that damn candy. And yes, I'm old enough to remember getting 2 large loaded pizzas for $10. And then when they started selling the Crazy Bread, loved that too.

Used to love the square pizza back in the day. The current $5 pizza is crap but its cheap. I guess thats their business model now.

Little Caesar's has always been awful, and nearly everyone thinks so. Even when I was a kid I hated their pizza. There is a reason why they aren't expanding, rather shrinking. All of the ones in Northern VA have gone out of business, there are only a handful left.

Remember when Little Caesar's sold a big bucket of spaghetti? I really miss that.
Glaivemaster - January 01, 2012 - Report this comment
The square pizza from the 80s was the best. They haven't been the same since. The only way to get a decent LC pizza now is to order one with extra cheese - it will remind you *just a bit* of the 80s square pizzas. Also, the italian cheese bread makes a better combo than the crazy bread - put them together and you have taken a (small) step back into the best decade ever.

I still remember the 80s little caesars. Those two cheapo round pizzas were awesome because they were light on the grease. i loved the yellow peppers on them pizzas too! but alas, sometime in the early 90s they completely changed their recipe thereby destroying the main reason i went to little caesars. why upscale when people liked the pizza pizza or pan pan pizzas! i miss those bags/boxes. they could really set themselves apart if they returned to that old recipe!

Does anyone remember the buckets of spaghetti they sold? Lol...so random. My dad picked up Little Ceasars almost every Wednesday for dinner growing up because my mom worked late that day. I loved the crazy bread. The rest I could take or leave. I now have a store a minute away from me in California and it's not horrible...the ingredients they use at the local store are super fresh.

Swiss - June 27, 2012 - Report this comment
I remember in the 80's & 90's we would get Little Caesar's. They had the 2 pizza deal called the "Big Foot" that came on a big cardboard sheet. It was more expensive then, but they had an actual recipe at that time that gave it a very unique flavor from any other pizza. It was like an actual pizza place. But since they went to the $5 pizza model they just taste like regular pizza. But even beside the price, I still think it tastes better than the other major chains (and anyone who actual knows something about pizza shouldn't be going to the major chains if they're in the mood for taste over budget). But I really wish I could find one that still makes the original recipe. I'd pay good money to taste that again.

I remember having it once in the late 80s. We got it next to my tae kwon do place in sterling, va. It was great. Back in 2004 or so, I noticed one in Fredericksburg, va. I got one, and ate the whole thing, after a long day working construction. It was low cost, but not near as good as I recalled. it could be that any pizza is good when you're a kid though.

Used to get the two-pizza deal often in the early '90s when I was young. It was great! It came in a long wrapped package. I recall some of the other stuff they offered, like the chocolate ravioli. I believe they even had some kind of Popeet-like accordion container with lemonade or something.

Stuff I didnt know, but I remember their sub sandwich, perhaps it was that parmesan crust bread, but that sandwich knocked me OUT! Cheese was perfectly melted, flavor was great, I wish they would bring that back.
