Dollar Slice Club lives up to its name

I'll disclose that every pizza-by-the-slice place will forever be compared to a wildly positive experience I had in New York City late one night years ago.

  • With that out of the way, I can dive into my thoughts on Fayetteville's Dollar Slice Club on Dickson Street.

The schtick: One joins the club via an app and by paying $5 per month (plus tax and a fee; it comes to about $6). Members receive discounts on each order.

  • A slice of cheese pizza goes for $3 to a nonmember, but $1 to a member. A pepperoni slice sells to a nonmember for $3.50, but members get a dollar off.
  • There's no cap on how much or how often you buy, so a membership could pay for itself in just a couple of visits.

The setup: I ordered two slices: pepperoni ($3.50) and the Bianca ($4), which is mozzarella, ricotta, some Romano and garlic, both served up on a paper plate.

The verdict: Let me point out that Dollar Slice Club is mere steps from the U of A campus.

  • It's open until 3am Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays and until midnight every other day.
  • The location is between the bar scene on Dickson and where thousands of students live. And it's cheap.

The bottom line: It's not great pizza. But what Dollar Slice Club lacks in culinary arts, it makes up for in understanding its target demographic.
