Secure your tongue's access to delicious pizza with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of food and drinks at Waldo Pizza. This Groupon is only valid at the Douglas Square location in Lee's Summit for dine-in, delivery, or carryout.
The Food Network recognized Waldo's downtown location on an episode of "The Best Of: Pizza Places"; the Lee's Summit site carries the same tasty recipes and a wide range of sauces, cheeses, and other fixings to outfit your delicious disc for lunch or dinner. Colorful ingredient combos, a medley of crusts, various vegan options, and a humongous salad bar populate the packed menu. The standard mozzarella and provolone on Waldo's traditional bread crust will satisfy cheese bigamists ($7.15 for 10", $16.35 for 16"), and culinary cowboys can go hog-wild with toppings such as Canadian bacon, Spam, and roasted corn on the buttery, chewy honey-wheat crust ($0.80 for each extra ingredient on a 10" pie, $1.95 per topping on a 16"). Extensive vegan and gluten-free menus offer healthy and tasty twists on Waldo's prized pizzas. The mammoth all-you-can-eat salad bar ($7 dine-in, $6 carryout, and $5 with a pizza) pleases leaf lovers with its 18 toppings and six drizzlings, including Italian dressing and the sound of the wood nymph's pleasant flugelhorn.
Today's Groupon is good for carryout, delivery, or dine-in noshing. Waldo can get busy at dinner and on weekends, but there's plenty to do if you're waiting to order. The bar is awash with imported and domestic suds for sipping and stomach bathing, including 60 bottled and eight on tap. Once you've snagged seats, try the cheesy garlic bread ($2.50 for eight pieces) and pick from your table's stack of Trivial Pursuit cards for a quiz du fromage.
Seven Yelpers give Waldo Pizza four stars. The Kansas City location was also featured on the Food Network as one of the best pizza places, and its sliced-steak pizza recipe is posted on Food Network's website:
- I could never turn my back on their pizza. It would take some major damage (i.e. they go out of business damage), for me to stop eating there. Their pizza is absolutely phenomenal. Their salad bar is out of this world. Their beer selection is boundless. – Katie D., Yelp
Making hard choices is half of the fun at Waldo Pizza. When designing a custom pie, diners first have to choose from four different crusts—the yeast-risen, hand-tossed traditional; the St. Louis–style thin crust with a glaze of garlic butter; the thick and chewy honey wheat; or the gluten-free dough, made using tapioca, eggs, soy milk, and rice flour. From there, diners choose from more than 60 different toppings, including everything from Cajun sausage and sun-dried tomatoes to grilled salmon and avocado.
The innumerable pizza and pasta options clearly demonstrate the Italian roots that the restaurant has embraced since originally opening in 1987, but the menu also features regional American staples, such as tender pork rib tips and cheesesteak sandwiches on toasted ciabatta bread. Additionally, the chefs forge a number of gluten-free and vegan-friendly options. The meals pair with craft microbrews and wine. Classic cocktails are also served at the Kansas City location, including the sazerac, which may be America's oldest known cocktail if one doesn't count bathtub gin with a little soap in it.
