    I'll second the BW3 wings. My wife is from Western NY, so I've had my share of wings from the source, and BW3 is right up there with them. I've also developed a taste for Chiavetta's and Chicken Spiedies(sp).

    Of course I recently came into a recipe for crock pot wings that is awesome.

    Gold Star

    (Although I think Skyline is better for chili spaghetti and Gold Star for coneys)

    Plus, Gold Star wins all of the awards consistently.

    Skyline > Empress ~ Goldstar

    There are still Empresses around. 2 that I know of for sure. Goldstar is friggin' nasty. I'm surprised that the health team hasn't shut most of the ones arounf here down yet. Skyline has a good spicy flavor to it, too.
    I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.

    Skyline (and any of that chili in the tri stae area) is not what I would call spicy by any standard.

    Just one mans opinion

    I don't think Skyline is "spicy".

    I think it's "flavorful". I think that is a more apropos description of it.

    I love their pizza, mainly because of the sauce. It's my favorite thing about pizza, in general. Most places, particularly in the East are way more concerned with crust and cheese. The sauce is an afterthought.

    I do agree with you that the care that individual LaRosa's take vary widely. The joint on Vine St. in Corryville has laughably poor service, and I can't imagine that the quality control on the sauce/cheese ratio is any good.

    I was there this past August with some old high school friends of mine who didn't live in the area. One of my buddies actualy bought two big tubs of Larosa's sauce from the restaurant.

    Re: Goldstar or Skyline?

    No offense to anyone who lives there, but the "East Coast/NY Style" pizza that I've had when I've visited that part of the country has been beyond disgusting. There is no sauce and the crust is flappy, tasteless and sickening. Not even the toppings are good. (Blah)

    Anyway, LaRosa's is definitely not my favorite pizza(I don't hate it), although interestingly enough I think it is very good at KI(the amusement park for those who don't know it). It is better there than anywhere else.

    My favorite pizza places are Papa John's and Donatos.

    Skyline.

    And sauce and cheeese are great, but if you get the crust wrong on a pizza you're disqualified in the good pizza argument (e.g. the preformed, frozen crusts that they use in Greek places can't be redeemed).
