The pizza chain that was named the worst in the country is Chuck E. Cheese, and Billings is home to the only location in Montana. I remember going to Chuck E. Cheese and having nightmares because of all of the mechanical animals dancing on stage. Here's what the website said about Chuck E. Cheese.

Chuck E. Cheese entertainment centers have been redesigned, but the pizza is still just plain bad.

It's been years since I've been to a Chuck E. Cheese, but apparently things haven't improved much. However, it's still a popular choice for kids' birthdays and celebrations.
