Now if I were in the middle of nowhere (definition: a place without a pizza place) I would try this.

Since I am in a town full of pizza places, some operated by Italians, and a few open 24hrs, I doubt I will be eating one anytime soon.

Then again if Snappy reports back that they are huge, I will consider it!

A closer look at the sign atop the pizza machine today reveals that the 40 peso pizza promotion (cheese) is only good for 15 days........it just doesn't say when the 15 day peiod started. SO HURRY - RUN don't WALK, you don't want to miss out.
Also, a closer look at the pricing shows that from the promotional 40 peso pizza, prices range uo to 100 pesos.

I know the people that own this machine. They are the same couple that run the "El Pasaporte Amigo" discount book to Playa Del Carmen.

If I remember correctly they imported this machine from Spain.

I hope it works out for them. I haven't tried it yet but I will out of pure curiosity.

You just put your cash in, press the button for one of 6 pizzas and in 2 to 3 minutes your pizza comes out hot . Okay, who is going to try it first and report back? Rick and Sue? Snappy?

What will they think of next

I was walking by the "pizza machine" and there was a couple getting ready to order a pie. So I became a lurker to see how this machine operated. The couple opted for the 40 peso promotion pizza (ordering is done on a touch screen). I wait the three minutes to watch the pizza being out of the machine. It was "delivered" out of the machine in a white pizza-type box. I asked the couple if I could look at their pie and they opened the box. It actually looked better than I thought it would look. It was in an aluminum pie-type pan. The funniest thing was that the couple did not get their change (the machine is supposed to deliver change when the pie is delivered). As I walked away they were beating on the machine to get their change.
So, we are still waiting for a guinea pig to do the taste test. JOE

My suggestion for the time being is to use only the exact required amount to pay for your pizza.

You appear to be hanging out at AKI a lot lately.
I really find that store to be nearly as bad as their predecessor

Nah, it is just on my daily walkabout route. Just happened to see the couple by the machine and went to get a close look.
