I was gonna ask another tax question about the D.C. Council considering commuter income tax but I’m sorta tired of tax discussions. Though I am intrigued about a commuter tax…

But since it’s Friday and a reader wrote in and I am obsessed with pizza…here we go:

“Dear PoP,

I live in Adams Morgan and last week I found a menu from Many and Olga in my house mail box. In the evening I tried to order the special $15. For 5 toppings, sounds great deal, when the pizza arrived the receipt was $17.80 or so, because tax $1.50 and $1.25 delivery, I know it is not much, but I rather give the delivery guy a 25% tip and not cut him short because he works hard, but I end up give him less, because I did not know of the the delivery charge. Do you know if is only pizza places that do this?”

Hmm, I think most of the big chains do this but I’m not 100% sure. Do you guys think that a delivery fee is reasonable or does it just end up hurting the tip the driver will get in the end?

And now for the Friday question of the day and a topic I will never ever get tired of discussing – pizza. Who delivers the best pizza in DC? I know there are some places where I really like the pizza in the restaurant but when they deliver it’s a bit disappointing. So let’s make this a two part question – who do you think is the best chain pizza delivery and who is the best brick oven delivery?
