    Default partnership shelter pizza

    Going to be hitting this area soon. Do they take credit cards at the pizza place that delivers to the Visitor Center, I most likely think they would.

    The way to handle this is to let the person taking your pizza order on the phone know you want to use a credit card. The delivery person will bring the paper credit card statement to sign.

    I recommend you call them (now) and ask. There are at least two that deliver to the Visitors Center. The VC will have the contact info, if you don't have access to a guide book with it. Don't forget a tip! And don't forget they deliver sweet tea and ice too!!!

    Don't know if it is still true (probably not), but when I went through there in 2003, the guy ordering was able to get them (who, I don't know) to deliver a 12 pack of Bud. The driver got a good tip that day.... and those that stayed in the shelter were very happy.

    I've had pizza there several times and it was hot and good...but then a hiker eats anything so maybe I was just happy to get 'real food'.

    Ditto that. We were there last month; a couple of thrus went into town for re-supply, and as soon as they arrived back at the parking lot were promptly shaken down by law enforcement to make sure they had no alcohol on them.

    Thumbs up

    IMHO, the pizza was just great. But the ice and sweet tea were even better!

    There were two of us and I don't remember any problem with any minimum charge.

    And the "No Alcohol" sign is prominent and apparently totally justified based on past behavior there, per the staff at the Visitors Center.

    That sure is clear. No doubt in my mind that the guys who were delivering the beer back in the early 2000's were not supposed to be doing that and it finally got out of hand. Too much booze and ruckus usually causes the authorities to take drastic steps such as the "shakedowns" reported by a previous poster. I wouldn't be surprised to hear that a drunk hiker tried to break into the visitor center after hours back in those years. Something like that really gives the hiking community a bad reputation.

    It is best to call and ask, but I'm pretty sure they do take credit cards. Definitely need to give it to them on the phone when you order.

    You can get pizza from Pizza Hut or Pizza Plus. Pizza Hut takes credit cards for sure.

    hey. not trying to give untruthes. it is funner to watch and talk about , than to order, wait for, pay for, suffer , and say you had pizza. belive me, if your from south philly, that aint pizza. its cheezy bread with soda. and yes. back in the day the delivery guys brought alot of things. and back then i used to brag about it. you had to know who to ask for or how to get any driver to bend. goes like this,...thank you mamm,..and could you please tell the delivery man he can name his price for some stops to get beer and ciggs and wine and things? then you get a call. and you finagel. but that was then. like lwolf said, drinkin aint allowed. witch means if you do , your willing to not have a shelter there one day if thats the concquences ever. and willing to have me curse your birth if that happens. i need the sink out back of partnership for alot of things. you just eat your cheesy bread and drink beer where its allowed. way funner.
