A Simple Way to Support Your Local Pizza & BBQ Restaurant

pizza delivery in san mateo

Did you know that the way you order your pizza delivery in San Mateo matters?

As a customer you probably don’t know that 3rd party delivery services like UberEats, Slice, DoorDash, and GrubHub all charge fees to businesses like ours for your orders. While the cost is not passed onto you, the consumer, our neighborhood pizza and BBQ restaurant must take from our own profits to have your orders delivered by a 3rd party.

Thankfully there’s a simple solution! If you live nearby and are ordering delivery or you are ordering for pickup we’d love it if you ordered either by phone or from our own in-house ordering system available here: https://windycitypizza.hungerrush.com/ or 650-578-1942.

As we continue to face challenges with the supply chain and work tirelessly to provide our customers with the same great Chicago deep dish pizza and Texas style pit-smoked BBQ in the Bay Area we need all the support we can get. We appreciate our customers’ patronage throughout the pandemic and continue to ask for your support as we recover from CoVID-19 supply shortages.

Consider Ordering Directly From Windy City Pizza and BBQ Restaurant in San Mateo

Help us serve you better and also support your local pizza and BBQ restaurant by helping us to avoid the costs of doing business with 3rd party delivery services.

What is there to lose?  Place your order with us today – order online for delivery or pickup.

 

Events Happening at Your Favorite Restaurant Due to Covid… That You Probably Did Not Know About

How Has CoVID  Impacted Your Favorite Pizza and BBQ Restaurant in San Mateo?

I noticed a YELP review a few days ago where a customer stated she was not returning to a favorite restaurant in San Mateo because something had changed. This caught my attention as – for the last several months – Windy City has been unable to find the regular size portion cups for our BBQ side dishes… among other items. Prior to that, we were unable to source the lids for our portion cups. For over a year, there has been a shortage of pizza boxes and frequently our 2” deep box – absolutely necessary for our bigger, deeper pies – have been unavailable for weeks at a time. Meat, poultry, pepperoni, salami and cheese prices are through the roof. This past year, Beef prices increased 125%, Poultry 55%, Pork 16%, Soy Oil 110%. And Pizza boxes 35%.

We cannot source apple cider vinegar and our cooking oil runs anywhere from $36 to $75/box, depending on the supply chain. Availability of kegs and bottles of beer is totally random, week to week.

Our “Chicago’s Famous Eli’s Cheesecake” has not been available for two months! Paper goods, utilities and wages have all seen a dramatic price increase, plus many restaurants, including our pizza and BBQ restaurant in San Mateo, are coping with acute staff shortages, both back and front-of-house. So… if something seems out of the ordinary, please ask why! As has been well documented, more than 100,000 restaurants have already permanently closed throughout our country.

We need – and sincerely ask for – our customers’ continuing support, patience and understanding as our industry deals with unprecedented issues not seen in a generation. It’s easy to write a negative review, what’s not easy in these tough times is being able to find everything needed to keep Windy City Pizza & BBQ open.
