(I'm assuming that anything under I-70 and west of US 23 fits the definition of "SW Ohio"... right?) Ha Ha Pizza, Yellow Springs
My brother and I were in Yellow Springs this weekend and we tried Ha Ha Pizza. The last time I stopped here was with a work lunch bunch in 1996 and at the time it was OK.
Here's the bottom line: it's more like "ha ha, customers!" Avoid this place.
Relatively expensive, hideously slow service, and mediocre product. It just wasn't that busy, either.
Sitting down to being asked for our drink and food order was about 15 minutes. 10 minutes after that to actually get drinks. About 40 minutes after we ordered we got our food. We sat down a few minutes after 3 and it was not until 4 PM that we actually got our food.
The calzone was stuffed with ricotta - it looked like a shell full of cottage cheese, and it oozed a ton of water. (If I made something like that at home I'd scrape it in the trash and start over.)
The pizza crust (wheat) was pure mediocrity and I ate the bare minimum to get at the toppings. The crust edges I left uneaten, they had the mouth feel of stale crusty bread. Calzone, personal pizza and two teas were just below $20 - exorbitant for the amount and quality of food and the wait.
Too much hippie culture baggage, not enough substance, mediocre food, and very poor value. It appears that 90% of their business is dumb middle class tourist teenagers who are "making a counterculture statement" by eating here.
It's pretty much what you'd expect from the graphic they have in their menu of a generic Italian like chef smoking some sort of "cigarette" thing and enjoying it too much.
Maybe the Freak Brothers own the place...
