Cici's Pizza, 2732 Decker Boulevard: April 2010   11 comments

Posted at 1:30 am in Uncategorized

As I was coming out of Staples the other day, I noticed that Cici's Pizza Buffet in Fashion Place, the hard-luck plaza at the corner of Decker & Trenholm Extension was closed. Frankly, I had only been vaguely aware that it was there. I kind of took Cici's off my list of places to try when a soldier in Augusta told me that the one on Washington Road was the worst pizza he'd ever had and he'd had a lot of bad pizza. Now, it could have been a purely local issue, or he could have just been wrong (after all, could it really be worse than Chuck E Cheese?), but I figured Why risk it? and have yet to darken a Cici's door.

Cici's is not the first pizza restaurant to close in Fashion Place as The Italian Oven blazed that trail years ago. The first day I noticed it, there were still some guys inside doing inventory-looking stuff, and as of today there is still a lot of equipment and pizza boxes in there.

UPDATE 2 Sept 2010 -- This Cici's has now been replaced with another pizza buffet "Gabby's":

  1. For a CiCi's it was good. The pizzas were well made, though when I went there, the dough tended to be underproofed. There was also a Pizza Chef here, I think where the salon is.

  2. I personally like CiCi's and the one in NE Columbia is always busy.

  3. This one was independently owned and couldn't keep up with a lot of the promotions the others in town were running.

    The restaurant was nice and everyone was friendly. Hate to see it go.

  4. Shocked about this. I had always heard, and I though CiCi's promoted the fact that no CiCi's had ever closed for lack of business. This would be a first.

  5. Hmm. According to The State, this Cici's is actually moving to North Main.

  6. Just an FYI, this Cici's was voted one of the top Cici's in the country in terms of management. The location was bad and it is true this Cici's is moving to North Columbia.

  10. Gabby's also departed from Dutch Square in a spot that had 3 different pizza operations in as many years before I had a chance to make it :(

  11. Just wanted to drop a line and say - Chuck E. Cheese pizza is not bad (as of 3 years ago). It has a thick enough crust, actual pizza sauce between the dough and the cheese. It is super expensive comparatively. Something to think about for Super Bowl Sunday though - you can call and order a pizza there will likely less of a wait than Papa Johns . . . .
