The Globe reports the chain, which started in the North End, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
Chapter 11 is just a debt/equity restructuring, not a liquidation. They might close or sell off a few non-profitable locations but the North End restaurant should stick around for a while.
i've been bitter ever since they annexed the sports depot
The Allston location is great, especially if you want to take kids out for pizza. I really hope it can survive. Sports Depot was more of a drunken urban redneck bar.
The North End location is outstanding (we get take-out quite frequently) and I also have had great experiences with strong customer service and well made food at the Fenway location (as long as there isn't a ball game to overrun the neighborhood). The few mall food court locations I have tried were usually pretty weak and the licensed location in Allston is a total disaster not my favorite spot. I don't think that Pepe's coming to Chestnut Hill Mall is any threat as it is a very odd location (and the satellite Pepe's stores, especially at Mohegan Sun) are not nearly on par with the New Haven original.
Their Pizza is great but I love the garlic oil dipping sauce. I can drink that staight from the bottle.
Unos is a joke. Their "pizza" is nothing but a tomato pie. But they can't figure out what they want to be. One year it's a pizza restaurant, next year it's an Italian restaurant, now they're back to wanting to be a pizza restaurant again. Meanwhile there's no sign of the word pizza outside my local UNOs.
Ernesto's kicks their bankrupt butt.
They're grossly over-priced, have very poor to non-existant responsible adult management at their various locations.
