Domino's to the Rescue: Feeding my Hungry Crowd

Disclosure: I received a gift certificate to help facilitate the review. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.'

A Domino's Pizza ordering kiosk was right in the hotel of the lobby!

On our recent vacation, the hotel had this great Domino's Pizza kiosk where you could order your pizza on a touch screen. It was sitting right in the main lobby, and it had the entire menu on it. It was easy to use, and I saw many a person utilizing it during our stay. I'd never seen one before, and I thought it was an awesome idea.

Hand Tossed Cheese for the kids
Those are boneless wings in the background, and they did not last long
We haven't had Domino's in years because they are no longer located in our city. I do remember loving them as a kid, though! The one big difference I noted immediately is they have a lot more choices than they did when I was a little one. There were five crust types alone, including a Gluten-Free option.  There were a handful of cheese options including Asiago, Feta, and Provolone. And the regular toppings included great things like spinach! They also had quite a few types of chicken, including cool things like Specialty Chicken-Crispy Bacon & Tomato.

Sausage is popular with the guys in our family
Because there were quite a few of us, we ordered traditional toppings like sausage, and just played around with the crust types.

Brooklyn Style Crust and Robust Inspired Tomato Sauce
This was the room favorite!
You could select your own sauce too, and one of the pizza combos we made was a Brooklyn Style Crust and Robust Inspired Tomato Sauce. That one, with its slight kick in the sauce, and foldable crust, was the room favorite.

The men in the family just look like ravenous cavemen in the picture (they did it on purpose ).
You can see from the picture my crew was happy, and hungry.  They just look like ravenous cavemen in the picture...from the oldest to the youngest, the males are definitely the decided hams of our family (no pizza pun intended).

In 'real life' they line up nicely and take their turn. ;)
In reality they line up nicely, and wait for their turn calmly, like they're supposed to do. ;)

We were all surprised to find out how many options Domino's Pizza has on their menu. You can make so many different flavor combos. They have a lot of great specials going on too.

It was a nice treat to order in, and enjoy Domino's Pizza, Chicken Wings, and Family Time.  Thank you, Domino's!

You can learn more by visiting their website (where they often have great coupons!).

You can also follow them on Facebook, Twitter, and/or G+.

  1. Even with your stellar review Domino's is not my favorite pizza. They are trying to up their choices and I appreciate that, but nothing beats pizza from a local Italian restaurant. And you have to go chains... I prefer Papa John's.

  2. I had Domino's pizza once. It was awful. Sorry, but I can't see how they are still in business. Round Table is our favorite pizza place.

    Have a fabulous day. :)

    1. That kiosk was very popular. I think they do pretty well too, and that's great esp. in an area w/as much competition as there is in Lake Buena Vista, (where that kiosk was located). :)

  5. I happen to love Domino's pizza. I didn't know they had a Gluten-free crust option though. That is pretty cool idea. We usually do Little Ceasars for cost effectiveness, but when we order, we order Domino's. I'm lucky that we have a couple centrally located so it makes it easy to order from them. The kiosk is an awesome idea!

  6. I love Domino's, but sadly we don't have one in my town and I hope they read this and decide to open one here immediately!!!! Domino's = YUM!

  7. I remember when Domino's had very bland pizza, but they are so good now. Plus, they're generous about supporting charitable causes.
    I've never seen a touch screen for ordering pizza. Very cool.

  8. We just had a Domino's Pizza open here and I had not had it in years but I have to say that there new recipe is very good and our kids love the new theater design of the shops so they can watch everything.

  11. Those look really good for pizzas. You make me want to be bad with my diet.

    ReplyDelete
  12. You have quite the crew... my favorite pizza is what's in the oven right now! Delivery pizza has never been good to me- makes me feel hung over without the alcohol, oddly!

  13. Oh my love the pic of your men. I have nbever seen a kiosk like that, Neat.

  14. Dominos pizza is ok but prefer Pizza Hut

    ReplyDelete
  15. Dominos has definitely stepped it up over the past few years. I have become a fan of their pizzas again. They look delicious!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I haven't had Dominos since before they changed all their recipes. I think it's been at least ten years since I've had it. I know we have never stepped foot in the one in Minot at least, and I've been here for over 9 years now. We've talked about trying it again, but so far haven't. My husband's favorite pizza place is Papa John's and Elliott's is Pizza Hut. Elliott usually wins because it's closer. Ha.

  20. we actually had Dominos 2 days ago. They had a 5.99 for 2 medium 2 topping pizzas and we bought 6. They didn't even last the night. :)

  23. How convenient is that? We would def. give that a try if we saw one in our hotel lobby. We are all pizza fans....one meal we can all agree on. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  24. I would love to order anything via a kiosk. LOL I have never seen one of those either, but it looks so cool. Trinidad got it's first Dominoes just a few years ago and it is always crowded. We are big pizza fans over here. :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. I have not had Dominos in FOREVER... but that kiosk is a great thing.. I think I would be more likely to order from a kiosk like that in a hotel versus trying to do it online or on the phone...
    Hope they expand that to other hotels!

    ReplyDelete
  26. We have a Dominos close by and we enjoy eating there. I also love that they have delivery. Ours does not have a kiosk but I love that idea!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love the kiosk! That looks really convenient!

    ReplyDelete
  29. hahahah that cave man pic is hilarious!! what a genius idea to have a kiosk in a hotel!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Love the kiosk! I never would think to order a pizza that way. SO fast!

    ReplyDelete
  31. What an awesome idea! I would definitely use it if they had one in a motel I was staying at. Love Domino's anyway and this just makes it better!

    ReplyDelete
  32. What a different idea! We usually just order everything online when it comes to pizza orders, but I love the idea of having a kiosk right in the hotel!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Kiosks are fabulous idea no matter what! We haven't had dominos in years since moving to Toronto but I loved it back home! We now frequently get a little family run place around the corner so good!

  34. My son loves Domino's pizza. The closest one is about five or six hours drive from us where his dad lives. So he eats pizza when he goes to visit his dad.

    ReplyDelete
  35. You just have the most fun family lol.

    Yea Domino's...I haven't eaten their pizza in a very long many years.

    I prefer pizza hut and the husband prefers papa John's. weird.

    But yea I wouldn't mind trying Domino's again sometime.

    I love the kiosk idea too!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I have not had dominos in such a long time.. Maybe its time we revisit them..

    ReplyDelete
  37. Super convenient that they had a kiosk in your hotel! Dominos is my husbands favorite- I prefer my local pizzeria.

    ReplyDelete
  38. That is super cool and convenient. I love Dominos. I love thier online ordering feature.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Dominoes is also not my favourite, I like Pizza Huts' better.. but for the good, I'm trying to put off weight so... totally avoiding.. lol !

    ReplyDelete
  40. It's great that your family enjoyed it during your vacation. I'm not a huge fan of Domino's Pizza, but your review may just have convinced me to give it another try.

    ReplyDelete
  41. We like Domino's. I am so wanting to try their new chicken deal!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I have been trying to give up on pizza...and now I saw the pictures...I usually make pizza at home

    ReplyDelete
  43. My son likes their cheesy bread. He especially loves to watch the pizza tracker on the laptop.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Whether it's Dominios pizza or another pizza place I'm happy, you can never go wrong with pizza.

    ReplyDelete
  45. That picture with them over the food is pretty funny. I used to hate Domino's,but recently their food has gotten a lot better!

    ReplyDelete
  46. That is so cool. I have ordered online before but never seen a kiosk for pizza! lol. Looks like everyone had a great time with the pizza. =)

    ReplyDelete
  47. That pizza looks really good. What a fun way to order it too.

  48. Papa John's expanded out here a while ago and now they're all closed down. it was gross. The problem with pizza is it costs so much for so little. The reality is, nothing beats the 2 for 1 pizza chains we have out here. That said, that kiosk really makes it easy for tourists who cant navigate their way around the websites!

    ReplyDelete
  49. They have come to my rescue a couple of times already this summer when I have had a big crowd of kids to feed! That's a great feature in a hotel, though!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I've never seen that in any hotel before. I would TOTALLY order from Dominos if I saw one. I hate trying to figure out on my own which pizza spots deliver.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Haha...love the pic of the hungry peeps. I had no clue their were kiosks at hotels for something like that...but I love it!

    ReplyDelete
  52. How neat!!! A Domino's Pizza kiosk in the lobby! I think that's really awesome. It's been a minute since we last ordered from Domio's. The picture of everyone getting reading to attack the pizzas is priceless!!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I don't think they have a Dominos in my area either, but I think the touch screen ordering option is very cool and convenient and what a great idea to use it in a hotel lobby!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I love cool ordering systems, they keep down on employee incompetence. I love Domino's too you all looked like you had an awesome time

    ReplyDelete
  55. We have Domino's pizza here in Manila but I miss the Domino's in the US because its not the same. The taste is not the same.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I have never really liked domino's pizza but after your review I would give it another shot. Thanks for the review.

    ReplyDelete
  57. We dont often order domino's but seems it will change soon lately they have better deals than the other pizza stores around here thanks for the reivew

    ReplyDelete
  58. I haven't had domino's in years. I may have to check it out again. Thanks for the review!

    ReplyDelete
  59. The kiosk is a great idea. I like the convenience of being able to place a custom order on the spot....especially when the family is starving.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I'm not one for processed foods...but that does look good! :)

    ReplyDelete
  61. oh my this is heaven!! I want some and I madly want to eat pizza, this pizza looks very mouth watering!

  62. Wow that is quite the hungry bunch, Dominoes to the rescue! I love the idea of a Kiosk!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I haven't had Domino's too in a loooong time. My Mom wouldn't like the touch screen, but I see how helpful it is to businesses.

    ReplyDelete
