I've only been to Dewey's once, several years ago when they had only one location (in Oakley) Had a basic pizza, and it was just OK.
Because they now have a location on Newport on the Levy, it's unlikely I will be back.
Cincinnati does indeed have some good pizza, but it does take some looking to find – one might think we have nothing but LaRosa's and the national chains if one doesn't look closely, and this is precisely the assertion they make in the article – quote: <i>"Justice and DeWitt cite a number of similarities between St. Louis and Cincinnati — particularly the fact that both cities' pizza scenes mostly suck.

Dominated? Yes. Totally. But there are plenty of single location pizzerias (and one notable small chain – Mio's) here that make a good pie.
Just had Chester's in south Hamilton over the weekend, and it most certainly does not suck.
