Pie Slingers Worked For Us, Too

Friday, June 06, 2014 - by William Watts
My wife and I had heard about Pie Slingers in Fort Oglethorpe, just off Battlefield Parkway, and after reading the review, we decided to give it a try for ourselves. We ordered at the counter a 1/2 Bacon Cheeseburger and 1/2 Chicken Bacon Ranch pizza. We must of sat at the same booth as mentioned in the article because ours too had a picture frame, however, each table is decorated differently, including one which has cards from Trivial Pursuit.

We looked around and quickly noticed the 30 minute challenge sign which has me guessing which two family members would be able to complete the challenge, and that they have a 28 inch pizza which we saw one being taken out for a delivery order.

Our wait seemed to take longer than what I am accustomed to, but after tasting our pie, I new the wait was worth it. All ingredients tasted fresh, and it was served hot!. I commented this has to be the best pizza I've ever had!

The Bacon Cheeseburger pie was loaded with fresh tomatoes and onions, and the bacon tastes fresh, unlike the usual restaurant canned bacon. The sauces were just the right amounts, unlike some places, which are too saucy and mask the other flavors.

I would highly recommend Pie Slingers for freshness, quality, and service.
