Reader: Maybe LoDo got lucky with Lucky Pie -- Louisville didn't

Gretchen Kurtz had good luck with the pizzas at

Lucky Pie Pizza & Tap House

, which opened this past winter in (part of) the former home of Dixons and is

reviewed this week

. But a diner who's eaten at the

Lucky Pie in Louisville

wasn't as impressed with the cheesy original.

Says monopod:

Interesting, the pizza in the picture looks nothing whatsoever like the pies I've had at Lucky Pie's Louisville location. Those pies are flat, a bit greasy, very chewy and have (in my opinion) way too much cheese applied, to the point where it glops off onto the plate when you pick up a slice. Not terrible - they seem to be trying, and the ingredients are good - but I just can't get enthusiastic about them. I also found their "roasted vegetable plate" to be pretty insulting -- something like $10 for barely-cooked bell peppers and red onion, with a scant couple of pieces of still-chewy fennel. Maybe the Lodo location has these execution issues better worked out.

Did LoDo get lucky with Lucky Pie, even if Louisville didn't? Post your thoughts below.
