Pie Slingers Worked For Us, Too

Friday, June 6, 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.

Lung Cancer, The Deadliest Cancer In The United States

This time of year, I remember to give thanks for my faith, my family and friends and my health. Recently, I learned that lung cancer is the deadliest form of cancer in the United States; in fact, more Americans die each year from lung cancer than any other type of cancer. One in 13 men and one in 16 women will develop the disease in their lifetime. It’s important to learn about ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: We Can’t ‘Ban The Box’

I know a man who has over 20 former convicts from federal prisons who either work for him or who have retired with their dignity, pride, and self-worth restored. Better yet, I know some of them, men who have done “hard time” in prisons so wretched none of us would dare to go. So on the surface I applaud City Councilman Yusef Hakeem for seeing ways to get formerly incarcerated men ... (click for more)
