Surely this has got to be a joke.

We New Jerseyans are a proud, particular people.  There are many things we pride ourselves on. One of those being: We are excellent judges of pizza. In fact, we're passionate about it, just like our neighbors in New York and Eastern Pennsylvania.

The rest of them are normal enough. In the other cuisine categories, the chains we prefer in New Jersey are Five Guys, Chick-fil-A, Krispy Kreme, and Qdoba. But the top spot for Pizza was appalling to me.

According to the chart, New Jersey's Top-rated pizza chain is... Chuck E. Cheese.
