Wouldn't that be P.S.I.
P.S.O. My guess is it stands for Product, Service and Offerings or Organisation.

This too:
Marco’s brings high quality ingredients and all items are made on site.

All items are made on site so they are grinding their own flour and coffee too?!?!?!

Mmmmmm....

I know different people have different tastes, but in my opinion, Marco's is the best pizza shop in Conway. Reminds me of Imo's in St. Louis, which is my all-time favorite.

Pizza was not bad and up

Pizza was not bad and up front service was nice, but something about the manager in the background yelling at staff members and having porn on the TV while dinning in leaves a sour taste in ones mind.

That wasn't the manager....

...it was Swampyville on his annual visit to Conway.

I kid, I kid. (hopefully SWIBC is joking as well)

Dang, Rick leaves and the reporters get so lazy to just reporting a Q&A without any actual paragraphs? Guess he was more necessary than I thought....

*Disclaimer: bring on the 'thumbs down'. I welcome them.

They're not reporters!!!
They are highly-educated journalists that do lots of research.

Shame on you!

Wow!

Buy a guy a beer and he suddenly becomes a shill. I guess maybe the rumor of I-Wonder taking Rick's job wasn't so far-fetched after all! (Tongue-in-cheek)
