There are so many pizza restaurants in Dayton Ohio that serve great pizza that I think people choose their favorite for other reasons than the food itself. For me, I prefer to go to Milano’s Atlantic City Submarines. Yes, it is odd that pizza is not in their name. I, personally have ordered hundreds of pizzas for every sub that I have eaten there. Subs are not my thing — too much bread.
I go to Milano’s because they were part of my college experience. The ties are strong. The original Milano’s was a hole-in-the-wall on Brown Street near the University of Dayton where I got my Masters degree. I’d go there to grab a bite right from work before night class would start.
Years later, a business consultant must have gotten hold of them and told them to build a bigger, newer, and in my opinion “just-like-everybody-else” restaurant to replace the old one. They soon expanded to Beavercreek, where I live. I go to the Beavercreek restaurant location for convenience, but the real memories are gone – but the food is still good.
Anyway, I was there on Friday night and something exceptional happened. The manager came over with to-go boxes for us. We did not ask him to. He was observant enough to see that we had finished eating and had the foresight to give us a little unexpected service. Did we want to-go boxes. Yes.
Should this be exceptional — no. But it was and was certainly appreciated and noted. Thank you, Mr. Manager. Keep up the great work. We’ll be back.
