The weekends are made for fun with my family and friends.

Spending quality time with my nearest and dearest is a really important thing to me. I also don’t mind when that good time involves great food too.

My son, Charlie, my best friend, Jess and I made our way to Chuck E. Cheese’s recently to check out their new food offerings (and of course all of the fun games). Word on the street is that about two years ago, Chuck E. Cheese’s launched brand new and exciting parent-friendly menu options. I can tell you this much, they did an awesome job on that upgrade!

We decided to help fuel our fun times by ordering a half, classic cheese pizza for Charlie and half, delicious specialty Veggie pizza for us moms.

The thin crust was so crispy, perfect and flavorful, I couldn’t get enough of it! And the veggies on our half were super fresh.

What’s awesome is that if you’re not necessarily in the mood for pizza, Chuck E. Cheese’s also offers menu items like traditional and boneless wings, wraps, pretzel bites and tons more. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t totally eyeballing the cheesy bread. Cheesy bread makes every mama happy.

If you are in the zone for one of their specialty pizzas, they have all-time favorites like BBQ Chicken, Cali Alfredo, and Classic Pepperoni. And for a limited time only, there are specialty pizzas like the Philly Cheesesteak and the returning fan favorite, Mac Cheesy Pizza.

I wasn’t surprised at all, after trying their awesome thin crust pizza for myself, to find out that Chuck E. Cheese’s beat out Pizza Hut in a nationwide blind taste test. It’s the second time #WeOutPizzaTheHut since they rolled out the new pizza. To me, that says a lot and I can fully agree.
