If you are a mom, you've probably spent many hours at Chuck E. Cheese with your kids. I know I have! We've both hosted and attended many birthday parties there, and I can't even count how many times I've taken my kids for play time when it is too hot, too cold, or rainy outside! It's a great place for me to catch up with friends while our kids play and run off some energy.
My kids always liked ordering pizza there, but I usually just ate a few breadsticks. We didn't really go for the food, it was mostly for our kids to have fun.
Well, parents - that has changed! Chuck E. Cheese has added some delicious new menu options just for us grownups! CEO of CEC Entertainment, Tom Leverton, says "We've added new items that cater to the more sophisticated tastes of the parents who take time from busy family schedules to bring their kids into Chuck E. Cheese."
David & I attended a Taste Test at a local Chuck E. Cheese yesterday and I must say that we were surprised by how good the new menu items are!
Corporate Chef Gregory Casale was on hand to tell us about the new menu and let us try everything. He told us about their new thin and crispy crust (you can order it with any of their pizzas), and that they make their dough fresh in each store every day. The whole-milk mozzarella cheese is freshly grated, veggies are chopped by hand - just like any pizzeria. He shared that "The new menu boasts a wide variety of options and flavor combinations and I'm most excited about the new pizza crust and pizza options." In a blind taste taste of 308 respondents, 59% preferred new thin and crispy Chuck E. Cheese pizza to Pizza Hut and Dominos combined! I have to agree - I really liked the new thin and crispy crust - it's delicious!
So now you get to find out about the delicious new menu items Chuck E. Cheese has to offer!
There are two new Signature pizzas:
Cali Alfredo ~ thin and crispy crust with alfredo sauce, fresh spinach, sliced musrooms, chicken breast, sausage and freshly grated mozzarella cheese.
Here are the three new sandwich options:
Caesar Wrap made with whole wheat tortilla
Club Wrap made with whole wheat tortilla
Oven Roasted BBQ Chicken Ciabatta Sandwich
Want an appetizer with your meal? Try one of these new options:
These are the new boneless wings ~ I loved the Sweet Chili sauce. Spicy but oh so good! They also come in BBQ sauce. Chuck E. Cheese also offers bone-in wings with either sauce.
The breadsticks are tasty, and the new Buffalo Chicken Cheesy Bread was awesome.
A visit to Chuck E. Cheese deserves a sweet ending, so you should try one of the new desserts:
David loved the Churros with the salted caramel. My favorite dessert is the new, improved Cinnamon sticks with a cinnamon shortbread crunch and a drizzle of white chocolate icing.
We will be going to Chuck E. Cheese for a family fun night soon! David is growing up so fast, and I want to enjoy every moment with him. I love watching him have fun and let loose when we visit Chuck E. Cheese.
