I was craving Chicago Deep Dish pizza while I was visiting my in-laws in Ft. Walton, so I went to my friend tripadvisor.com and County Line and their two locations popped up. Given the one on Page Bacon Rd., Mary Esther was a mile from the house it was a natural choice.
Boy, I should have driven further.
We ordered a Chicago style deep dish and a personal cheese pizza.
Let's start off with a positive, or at least the best I can find in this situation, the deep dish had a good flavor. I have had much much better, but it was a decent pizza. It is not 10" it is 9 1/2” It comes in a 10" box. It is not 2" thick either, it is 2" on the edge of the crust the center of the pie is 1 1/2". You may not think this is much but when you are paying $22 for a pizza that should feed three if not 4 and you lose one person, it makes a difference. If you want a medium pizza with lots of toppings think of it that way, not a Chicago pizza.
The personal pizza ($8) (in the attached photo) looked and tasted like a cross between Little Caesars and the old grade/high school cafeteria pizza. It was given to me in a "to-go" buffet style Styrofoam container. Which when hot stuff in, starts to melt, (the upside is at least the pizza was hot.) But that melting and chemical leaching might have added to the flavor, because it didn't have much.
This place is expensive and mediocre, and I am being generous with the mediocre.
In the end, County Line Pizza Mary Esther came off as “this is a bar that makes bar-grade pizza.” If you are looking for quality or even on-par pizza, go someplace else, including your high school cafeteria.
