And yeah, their menu is largely influenced by popular Hispanic culture and cuisine. The only dessert they have is churros, for example.

    Still not seeing why we should be carrying torches and pitchforks.
    You might have expected some kind of fusion at place with that particular name. It's not exactly "Pagliacci's" or "Antonio's."

    Would people be screaming bloody murder if Olive Garden or an Italian gellato place offered a free dessert for saying thank you in Italian?

    It's not a question of "fathoming" -- there just isn't one.

    As a capitalist, I find this pizza ordering fake controversy amusing and creative. What a great way to gin up business. Marketing wise, a little shady but as long as the fake issue goes viral, it's all good for the wallet. As a conservative, I don't give a squirt what language people use to order pizza.

    You shouldn't make appeals to self-authority when you don't know what's going on.

    You're just giving liberals something to laugh at.

    Floridians come from New York though. They should know better.
    Chicago style pizza is the best!

    I'm not opposed to liberals laughing. I laugh at them daily.... communication is only the core of community if the communities communicate. Too often, pockets of communities only communicate within their own... let me reiterate: As a conservative, the OP sounds fine to me - it's very American, very capitalist, and I could care less.

    I admire the piling on of toppings, but I don't like the chunky sauce.
