The pizza is super-chewy which, for me, is a good thing. Yuengling (and others) on tap ($3 in 2012). Friendly, attentive service. The "Six Inch" Veal Parm Sandwich (~$8) is a nice piece of meat - not ground or "tenderized" - and enough to fill me up; no way is it just six inches. The tomato sauce on it is nicely spiced and the cooked onions in it complemented the taste of the meat. My kid had the cheese Calzone which had a nice fresh tasting Ricotta and Mozz blend. I would never have ordered it but it was Delicious. They have several HDTVs tuned to different sports and news. It's clean and you refill your own soft drinks. I'd go back anytime I'm in the area!
Had a pepperoni and mushroom pizza. It was good pizza with a good crust. I didn't have anything else except a beer. Service was fine, although there was hardly anyone else there then. I'd go back next time I'm in town.
Unbelievable – It is unbelievable how STUPID some people can be. I have called DuhBoys Pizza on a number of occasions and every time, I get get to talk to someone who cannot take simple orders. Point in fact; I called yesterday (7.6.11) to order a "meatza-pizza" of which the order taker didn't understand. So, I rephrased it calling it a "meat lover's pizza." Again, the order drone had no idea what I was talking about. So I asked, do you have... and I ran down the meat selection that they had, to have on my pie. Then we come to the part where I want a little extra sauce on the pie. I swear to God.. the order drone said, "well, our pizza cook doesn't know how to put extra sauce on the pizza." I asked to speak to the cook and the order drone said, "the cook doesn't want to talk to you," Then I told the drone that I wanted to eat in and he said, "well, you'll just have to order it when you come in."
I will NEVER spend another dollar in this establishment. Too bad, because the pies are pretty good. I guess with down a economy, only the dumbest of the dumb wind up working at Doughboys.
OUT OF THIS WORLD! – I was down with some family on vacation from NY, and the hotel recommended Doughboys. We went for lunch on the way to the beach, and it was incredible; food, service, and all. We shared the old world pizza and some garlic rolls, and were blown away. We had doughboys again before for dinner the night before we left. Give them a call or stop by!
unbelievable! – i've been eating doughboys for several years and i cannot believe anyone could make even a slightly negative comment. the food is the highest quality, the portions are huge, pricing is fair, and the staff is very helpful and considerate. i have had just a few occasions over my long doughboys-eating tenure where i had to call back to resolve an issue, and the problem was corrected quickly and efficiently. doughboys deserves only the highest praise, definitely give them a shot. oh, and just order the margarita/old world style pizza if you get lost in the gigantic menu!
Outstanding value – If you're hungry, there's no better place than doughboys. every time i go or have it delivered i'm pleasantly surprised by the size of the order compared to the price, and i've been eating there for years! to hell with domino's or papa jon's cheap garbage. per dollar you get just as much food at doughboys and it's infinitely better. you cant miss at this place.
where have they been all my life? – i just tried doughboys the other day for the first time, and i can't believe i hadn't eaten there before living in ft lauderdale. when i got home i had to google the place, and i couldn't believe its been here so long (longer than i've been alive). i also couldn't believe some of the harsh reviews people made. it's my new favorite place to eat now by far.
Great Food! – My basketball team was looking for a good place to eat as a team, and coach was really pushing Doughboys. We gave it a shot, and it was incredible. I keep going back with my friends for that margarita pizza, it's amazing.
Best Italian Around! – I've been eating here for years, and never have I had a bad meal. The food is of such high quality, and you get great quantity for your money as well. It's truly an outstanding value. I'm an adventurous eater, so I enjoy trying something different often. I've loved everything from the pizza, to the subs, to the pasta, to the desserts. I definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for outstanding Italian at a fair price.
Terrible, in every sense of the word – I was craving something beyond the usual sandwich fare from my Ft Lauderdale hotel, and ordered dinner from Dough Boys, tantalized by the description of the veggie calzone, which promised to be loaded with broccoli, zucchini, mushrooms, onions, green peppers, and garlic. I was told delivery would be "about 50 minutes." One hour and twenty minutes later, my order arrived stone cold to the touch. The calzone was a swimmy, disgusting mess that was about 95% ricotta. I could have fit all the vegetables into a shot glass. The whole wheat crust was dry and tough. The marinara was swimming in oil, and tasted like the cheapest canned tomato sauce you could buy in the market.
I had also ordered a side salad with "NO OLIVES," and ironically, it arrived swimming in olives.
When I phoned the restaurant back to let them know how their food had arrived, I was told that they would send me out a new one, and I could return the uneated portion to the driver. Unwilling to wait at least another hour for what should have been done right the first time, I asked them to credit my card for the calzone. I was told, "that's not our policy."
With all the pizza places in the Ft Lauderdale area, there is NO WAY I will ever give Dough Boys my business again. Shame on them.
