Man vs. Food ??? Try Man vs. the Dough Re Mi gyro...
the biggest gyro i have ever seen.....and oh so good. perfect hangover cure, and impossible to eat the whole thing. Best gyro in Charleston hands down...
First time trying the food from here: had delivery pizza after a day of unpacking the moving truck. What we got was a yummy pizza, big slices, loaded down with pepperoni, sausage and ham.
Would defintitely recommend!
when i ordered delivery the driver told me it was much better if eaten at the restaurant because the pizza and crust get steamed in the delivery box and it isn't as good. I'm glad they were honest, i will drop in for a fresh slice soon.
The review is dead-on. It's great anytime, but if you go on Sundays, you can bring your own wine or beer.
God I love their pizza!! Never any problems with takeout.
Ate there the other day,i will say it was very tastey..the right amount of garlic in the sauce,nice blend of cheese..the owner was a trip..i will go back for sure i have my place to eat pie at..i wouldnt stir away from this place like many other places in the south,that try to pass off there norhtren flavor.....scotty
Everything is great about EVO - except the always-burnt crusts that turn your lips, fingers and napkin black.
Why does EVO have to make pizza with soot underneath? I have eaten at plenty of other thin-crust gourmet pizza places in various cities and they seem able to avoid burnt, sooty undersides of their pies.
I used to eat at EVO a good bit despite this major drawback - until I discovered D'Allesandro's.
Poorer beer selection, but better pie.
Best pizza in Charleston. It is thin-crust (but not too crispy), and wood-fired. My husband always gets the much-discussed Pork Trifecta, and I get the bianca with wild mushrooms and olives. Start off with a farmer's salad with blue cheese dressing. The beer and wine selection is excellent, they always have a few Coast beers on tap along with several other good microbrews. Friendly service, nice atmosphere. They get busy on Fridays and Saturdays so you might want to go early.
Fantastic pizza. The pear and gorgonzola is my favorite.
In the South, we don't use Barbeque as a verb. Must be a NYC thing. But we do have some damn fine pork pie at EVO. The Pork Trifecta is a labor of love.
EVO is not a "pizza joint." They make delicious food with smoky, delicate crusts and fragrant, fresh ingredients. They have top-notch craft beers and live jazz. The do NOT make a big, greasy pie, as one would find at a traditional pizza joint. Do not go in expecting that. Try La Pizzeria in Mount Pleasant or Park Pizza down the street from EVO. They're both yummy.
I love pizza in all its forms, and I know that there are widely differing variations on the theme. Sicilian, Neapolitan, NY-style, Chicago deep-dish, gourmet... all are wonderful in their own way. The poster that insisted that EVO is terrible because s/he didn't expect what they were serving should have figured it out by looking at what the other diners were eating. I've never been betrayed by my eyes or nose in EVO.
In NYC, we don't barbecue the Pizza. Must be a Southern thing. I don't understand the char. In most places they cook on a Pizza stone to control heat. Please read one of the cook books on the shelf.
Hey Mugbones...good atmosphere? A real gem? Yeah...the pizza is good, but a dump is a dump.
McCarty, I hope that the next time I screw up at work, I'm willing to apologize to my customer and make an appropriate concession. Sorry if I expect the same when I go to local restaurants.
Besides, I already apologized about the low rating and offered to have the site moderators to change it (I can't find any edit buttons on old posts). I cited all of the things I like about this place and the negative experiences I've had - that's what forums like this are for. I'm over myself...get your panties out of a wad.
i just can't help myself here. ford84, you give a one star review because of one incident when they lost your order?? get over yourself. unbelievable. next time you screw up at work i hope your boss posts a one star performance review of you on a public forum.
You're right about a couple of things, Bob.
1. The pizza here puts Andolini's to shame.
2. My one star review was harsh. If moderators want to change it to two that will be fine with me. However, this wasn't my first bad experience at The Dough. I like the pizza, love the atmosphere (yes, I've been to concerts here before as well), but the service has never been worth a dime.
I'm not above admitting that I was still a little steamed when I wrote this, but I still think my visits will be only when necessary (eg: if I'm in a group that wants to go to or order from here).
I have eaten and drink-drank-drunk at A-Dough many times in the last couple years. The pizza is consistently first-rate and true to the style. If you like NYC-style pie this is probably the best one in the area. It puts local chain Andolino's to shame. @Ford84: Sounds like someone messed up. You should have gotten an apology. Even though you were pissed about being inconvenienced, a 1-star review after only 1 visit to a great local mom & pop seems kinda harsh to me.
Ordered pizza from there yesterday. While the pizza was very good, the experience was lame. I ordered for pick up and was told "20-30 minutes" on the phone. I got there 30 minutes after that and they tell me "5 more minutes." I then saw them toss the dough, put the ingredients on it, and put it in the oven. They didn't even start making it until 30 minutes after I called it in!
Needless to say 12 minutes later, the pizza I watched them prepare finally came out of the oven. I could hear the employees standing around talking about how long I had been waiting, but nobody offered an apology or concession. That's pretty poor customer service. If you have a completely empty restaurant, you should take care of the one patron you have. They were not remotely busy.
The pizza tasted good (not great), so nothing bad to say about that. However, there are other equally good pizza restaurants that offer much better service. I hate to bash a local place like this, but this was inexcusable...I won't be back.
A Charleston native, I’ve eaten at Lil’ Mama’s countless times, and I leave extremely satisfied every time. The owners and wait-staff are accommodating, friendly and very knowledgeable. In addition to being well-kept and off the beaten path, the food is gourmet yet affordable. Lil’ Mama’s is a great place to have a beer and enjoy the afternoon, or have a mimosa and enjoy the morning!
