One of the region’s top pizza spots is growing — but in the wrong direction if you ask us: We’re big fans of The Crushed Tomato in Summerville and we had a moment on Thursday evening when we saw a new location about to open. A quick look at the photo had us quickly cross-referencing spots in and around Rome. Think north. As in 111. E. LaFayette Square in LaFayette. Crushed Tomato opens there on Tuesday, Oct. 22, with the same 11 a.m.-9 p.m. hours Tuesday through Saturday as the 205 Montgomery St. restaurant in Summerville. Put it like this: the wood-oven pizza is worth the drive to Summerville — for lunch or dinner. Menu
If you saw the trucks in front of KFC at Turner McCall and Riverside Parkway on Thursday and wondered what’s up, here’s the scoop — straight from the colonel?
“Howdy there, folks! While my Rome location is undergoing remodel construction, the drive-through will remain open to satisfy all of your KFC needs. Stay tuned for our new look!”
That was part of an a Facebook ad posted by the chain, referring to its restaurant at 820 Turner McCall Blvd. Is it us or didn’t that location go through an update a few years ago?
