Haha. 8.4 is now their description on Instagram.
This week we offer our congratulations to Pizza West Chester who was surprised with a visit from David Portnoy of Barstool Sports fame. The off-the-grid pizza shop that has generated a lot of buzz for its unconventional marketing methods and tasty pies survived Portnoy’s one-bite challenge with a respectable 8.4 score.
“If you know my scale, you know that is a ridiculously high score,” he said during his review.
Can’t stop. Won’t stop. While he was in town, he also stopped by the West Chester Pizza Cafe. After first impressions left him a little unsure, he found himself pleasantly surprised scarfing down two slices and dropping the Cafe a very respectable score of 8.1.
Benny’s was also rated “This is a traditional football pie. Not bad. 7.3,” Dave says during his review.
If you are not familiar with these one-bite reviews (I wasn’t either,) we are among the few. Portnoy’s YouTube pizza review channel has 788,000 subscribers; his Instagram has 4.4 million followers, and his three-minute review of Pizza West Chester is already up to 290,000 views.
