Several people had suggested the pizza from Georgie's. Apparently they were to be pretty good, but digging up information after the face was difficult. Why? Because of the name. See, there are two Georgie's pizzas in Ottawa. One is called Georgie's Pizza and Subs, and the other is called Georgie's Pizza and Subs. Oh, and they aren't affiliated.
I knew the location we had been told about was on Carling Ave, so I could narrow my research down. Since then I have come across 3 different names for this location: Georgie's Pizza and Subs, The Original Georgie's Pizza and Subs, and Georgie's Pizzeria.
My second favourite pizza topping is spicy Italian sausage (pepperoni being my first) and I was nervous that the sausage was going to come cut flat like pepperoni (I prefer it being in round balls), but it was rounded hunks of sausage. But they were pretty mild in terms of both heat and flavour.
The pizza crust was quite thick - not solid, but thick. The sauce was relatively thick there and a bit too tomatoey for my liking. It was a decent pizza, but not one I would go out of my way to order again. Not because it was a bad pizza, just not my style of pizza. But how would the wings turn out?

suicide had a nip, but no real bite
small to medium
sauce was on the side
crispy, but nearly chewy
decent, but standard pizza-place jug sauce
-pizza was decent . . . but probably order from somewhere else next time.
-not associated with the OTHER Georgie’s Pizza & Subs in
ok wings – acceptable in a pinch, I guess
Well, I watched the guys behind the counter pull a bag of wings out of the freezer and count out the wings for the deep fryer. Frozen, that can't be good. Well, maybe it can. When I got them home they were pretty small. They looked good as a wing though.
The suicide sauce was not very hot. I don't know, maybe its true when people say my heat receptors in my mouth must be burnt out, but I know super hot suicide sauce, and this wasn't it. It was a decent sauce, but nothing original.
The skin was nice a crispy, like they should be from the deep fryer. The meat was a little tough, but that's to be expected from frozen wings.
Well, I don't want to be mean, but this just wasn't the place for me to get wings or pizza. They make a fine pizza, but its just not my style. As for the wings, tiny, un-original wings. Maybe the other Georgie's is better? 5.5/10
