Oh well I will wait until later this year when I make a trip back to the US.
It can depend on what type of pizza you like.

Thin crust: Shakey's has good thin crust my wife and daughter like. Not their normal pizza. Crispy oven baked. If you are in Subic Freeport try Extremely Expresso. They have a big brick oven that turns out some nice thin pizza. One of Greenwich's small pizzas is a thin crust and I like the crust. The rest of it is average.

Pan Pizza: Pizza hut pan pizza here is not the same as the U.S. but we still like it. They usually have good 2 for 1 deals that are perfect for my family. I only tried their thin crust once and it sucked.

NY Style: Fairly thin and dripping with oil, S & R is the only one I know of. We like it and grab lunch there quite often. If you like the Costco pizza in the U.S., I think this is the same.

Yellow Cab: The first time I had it in Alabang years ago I thought it was ok, but the last few years when I have been served it at other people's houses I thought it was bad. It might be ok fresh out of the oven but turns to cardboard quickly.

They have the S & R pizza in the Pampanga S&R too, and we have two S&R Pizza in Subic Freeport.
Well, they do have quite a bit of car parking on the East side. The other side(s) close to the grocery is still a mess and over crowded. We use only our motor-trike when going over there so parking is for motors and trikes only in one area. Although usually close to full we still always find a place. I figure it this way; I'm retired and have nothing but time to wait or whatever so I doesn't make a difference to me.

My daughter has been pestering me to go to S&R at Marquee so maybe this Thursday we will ride over and I'll try a burger for a change.

I don't think so.
I've only been going there for the last year and only drove there a few times but I met a friend there a few months back on a Saturday and he was trying to find a space for over an hour.

During the week you should be fine, but if going on the weekend you might find parking difficult at certain times of the day.

I make homemade bagels - not hard, and better than what you’ll find in most shops outside of New York. Real bagels are boiled before baking, it helps develop that slightly chewy texture.

Marquee mall is like all the SM's. If you don't want to hassle with parking you get there at 10am when they open. There is always parking at 10am on weekends or weekdays. At that time you can also position the vehicle for a quick getaway as it will be a madhouse anytime after 12 noon.

FYI - I did not try the pizza at Marquee, decided to eat at Burger King. ha

Yes, that was the problem last time; getting out. The entrance / exits onto the surrounding small roads are poor designed, and we were queued up for a long time before we got back on NLEX.

Bought a whole S&R pizza last night and it was very good! Sometimes they make them too oily and messy for my taste but this one was just right!
