At the end of March it looked as if Quesa-D-Ya's and its 94 points would stay on top all year long. Then, two weeks into this quarter, a City of Ate staffer ordered from Izmir Market.

Bye-bye, Quesa-D-Ya's. At least until the playoffs.

For the most part, May-June proved to be strong months. Besides Izmir's near perfect 98, Bangkok City racked up 95 points, also squeezing past D-Ya's, while Lover's Pizza and Philly Connection filed into the top ten with scores in the low 90s...overshadowing nice efforts by Oriental Lite and Tony's Pizza. On the other hand, there was that pathetic outing by Rocco's...

Anyway, as the second quarter closes, we pause to the highs, lows and averages of home delivery over the past three months.
