For over 30 years we’ve been creating raving fans with our signature thin crust which is layered and pressed over 100 times by our custom-made dough rollers. We make and prime our dough right here. Fresh, every day. These are the folks who valiantly fend off the 2 for 1's and the conveyor oven pizzerias of BC and keep Me-n-Ed's pizza a dish that is meant to be savoured, not gobbled. These people are the owners and there is always at least one at every location.
I have not been to Me n Ed for a long time, and decided to go in for lunch with an Entertainment Book coupon. We ordered a medium California pizza. I really enjoyed the thin crust, but the toppings were rather bland. It was also a pricy pizza - $22 for a medium. I would go back and try their other items only if I have a coupon.
Ingredients tasted very fresh, and was plentifull on my thin crust pizza. I found their pizza very good and would come more often if it was cheaper. Pizza here cost about $25 for a large specialty pizza, which seems too much.
Found the appy breads and wings decent but not good. I would stick with the pizza, which is very tastey, will go back again.
After arriving at Applebee's to find that they have closed for good, my sister and I hopped over to Me-N-Ed's. Having heard excellent reviews by word-of-mouth, I was excited to try their thin-crust pizzas.
Luckily for us, they had a fantastic lunch deal going on. A small 6" with 2 toppings plus a salad for $6.95. My caesar salad was not the best, but pretty standard for a pizza joint - couldn't complain especially since it was a large portion. My ham and pineapple thin crust was delicious. Eventhough a thin crust, the overall was still pretty thick from ample toppings.
The restaurant itself looked like a pizza parlor and pub crossover. I guess it pleases both the families as well as to beer and grub crowd.
Service was pretty good. Everyone was very friendly. Be sure to use up those Entertainment book coupons here!
Overall, the meal was delicious. I didn't see any dough tossing, but since it was just for a 6", I couldn't expect it. Next time I visit, I hope to order large just to see it.
I went here for dinner with my daughter . . . last day to use the Entertainment Coupon. My daughter checked out the website before we left for the restaurant and knew she wanted the Perogy Pizza!!!
We seated ourselves when we got there and a moment later, our server came by to ask if we wanted anything to drink. She was pleasant. But it did take a while for her to come back to see how things were and to get our bill.
My daughter went to the large window to watch them make the pizza. From when I went there many, many moons ago, they used to put on a real show. Not anymore. So that was very disappointing. (Reason for the mediocre rating for ambiance.) But the restaurant was very clean and felt very welcoming.
The pizza looked DElicious when it arrived at our table. And it was very, very tasty!! I just found the crust just a tad bit overcooked. But the topping was very good and the amount of cheese was very good and the taste was very good.
Because we had a coupon, the value was very good but I don't know if paying $27 would have been a good value pizza. (Rating of value is with using the coupon.)
Total we paid was $25 with tip. Would I go back?? Yes, if I had a coupon.
Food: We love the pizza here! We love that we can get whole wheat crust, we love the ingredients, and we love that after we're done we dont feel all heavy and lethargic. Our favourites include Me-N-Eds Combo, BBQ chicken, and Gangster.
Service: I dont understand this seat yourself system. We have been in situations where no one comes to our table for a very very long time!! They dont seem too organized in differentiating who's order has been taken and who's new b/c there are times when we wait for a long time to be greeted and handed menus, and other times asked over and over if we've ordered.
Ambiance: Very casual pizza joint. Be prepared to be surrounded by hungry obnoxious idiots drinking, eating pizza, and watching the game.
Overall: Despite the lousy service system and cheap interior i'll still come back for the awesome pizza!
I've always enjoyed Me-N Eds pizzas for years. But i was a little disappointed at the last pizza i had. It wasn't quite up to the usual Me-N-Eds quality and taste that i am used to. I didn't mind paying the huge price tag for the quality, but not so much anymore. Their bead sticks were awful and the pizza crust was burnt and fell apart while biting into it.
Great Family Place
Good pizza, and good for family fun.
A good deal when you go to the restaurant, but a little pricey for delivery.
The owners of this location let you know that this place is kid friendly, but they are also willing to accommodate adult sports teams out for their fill of pizza n' beer. Seats are a bit uncomfortable, but I suppose it is a pizza parlor.
We will continue to return to this location. Maybe I am biased, but I really enjoy their pizza.
Expanding our search for a decent pizza joint in the Vancouver area, not having much luck. Decided to try Me-n Eds in the Edmonds/Kingsway area. What's so great about this place? It reminded me of a pool hall. People must be basing positive reviews on foggy nostalgic memories or something. Tried to like it, had a coupon, so that somewhat justified the $25 price on a large pizza. Why bother 'hand rolling' this pizza crust when it tastes like it was pre-made at some factory far, far away? Way too dry. Thin crust pizza shouldn't have the consistency of a hard tack biscuit. Sauce was nothing special. Could have counted the strands of cheese gratings laying on top. Had cheesecake for dessert - very large serving, good value, but not the real thing. It was the lighter refrigerator dessert version (made-by-the-ladies church-basement kind of cheesecake). Perfect, though, if you are not in the mood for the real thing, with the not quite real whipped cream piped on the side. I could have let it all go, and not submit a poor review if it wasn't for this final thing.... As we were leaving, I thought it would be neat to let the kids watch the pizza being made (because frankly, the kids did like this place). I saw the assembly line pizza makers piling everything on to the pizza orders while wearing rings, bracelets, and yes, even grimy cloth woven-type bracelets covered in sauce and who knows what else. Yummmm. Thank God for the 500 degree oven is all I can say.
the title says it all. This is a cafe/bistro/pizza parlour for the quick lunch crowd and they emphasize healthy eating. Quality ingredients with a smile and very cheaply priced. You can dine in on the cute chairs or take out but I like the atmosphere so I linger. As the description says they have been here a long time so it's no Cactus Club modern/hip/pretty waitresses joint but for $5 you cannot go wrong. Flavourful
It's all about the crust. It’s an amazing thin crust, really superior to any of those pizza chains. But if you don’t like it, then you won’t be happy that you just paid $30 for a not-that-big pizza. But if you love the crust, then it’s worth it. The toppings are pretty good, they don’t skimp out. It’s an expensive pizza, but I’ll still be coming back.
Most amazing pizza in the lower mainland. I would definitely recommend this joint to anyone looking to steer clear of the typical greasy meal offered by Pizza Hut or Panago. Me-N-Ed's is the real deal.
I miss Burnaby just because Me-N-Eds,they realy doing very good job,thin crust pizza with curry chicken (yummy)is the best pizza i ever had in my life,they open very late every night they open all the time very much,go once you will go agin
Me-N-Ed's is easily the best pizza I've had in Greater Vancouver. Their special multi- layered crust is amazing; the ingredients are always fresh and plentiful. I've tried at least half the pizza menu, and it's all good. Special kudos for The Soprano, a fabulous pizza heaped with cappicolla, fresh tomatoes, basil and boccocini. Me-N-Ed's is a great casual place to eat for all ages and the service is always efficient. Sure, it costs a bit more than Pizza Hut or Panago, but it's also about a million times better tasting too.
Even before I knew of the entertainment coupons my b/f was already taking us here for the occasional pizza. There is a great selection of toppings to choose from, as well as specialty pizzas.
I'm usually a very picky pizza eater, but this place has something for everyone (provided you like thin crusts). When you are eating a pizza, it's not just all dough!
Ambience/decor is family oriented and fun, and it always seems busy on weekends.
The entertainment coupons are bonus because the prices are a little bit higher than other pizza places, but I truly don't mind paying the extra bit for yummy thin crust pizza.
Do not believe the previous review! Me-N-Ed's makes homemade thin crust that is NOTHING like a saltine cracker. Of course if you don't like thin-crust pizza you will be disappointed. My husband and I both LOVE these pizzas (we order the whole wheat crust). You can even pull apart the thin layers of the crust and eat them. Mmmmm They also have a variety of specialty toppings such as Greek, Californian and Pesto (our favorites). Delicious toppings, but what keeps us ordering (we usually get delivery) is the crunchy yet chewy crust and that delicious just-baked flavor. Beats the pizza chains hands down.
I was at Me-N-Ed's last night with 4 other people during their peak dining hour. Our waitress was very friendly and quick, and delivered our drinks immediately. The food came within minutes of our ordering. as well. The pizza is great here, not the standard greasy stuff I've had at other restaurants. Try the Godfather or the Chicken Pesto, you won't be disappointed. Their crust is thin and crispy, and you can order it as whole wheat which is a nice alternative. They'll always have my business.
The first and only other time I've ever been to Me-N-Ed's was over 10 years ago...
This time I had a craving to go to a genuine pizza parlour. When I say that I meant not Pizza Hut or other such chains. So I decided to try Me-N-Ed's having always wanting to try it again...since I could not remember anything particular about it from the first time.
I got there around 2pm on a Wednesday afternoon. There were quite a few more patrons there than I thought would be around at that particular time of day. They operate on a seat yourself basis. At first I thought that might be a problem as when we sat I didn't have the feeling anyone noticed us come in or sit down. But the waitress on duty came around in a timely manner and was very pleasant. She was very pleasant and helpful when my gf had questions about the menu and even offered some nice suggestions.
The food was very good. The pizza was delivered to the table in very good time and very fresh. We noted right off the bat that the toppings were in generous portions and very fresh in appearance (and taste). The crust was nice and light and crisp and NOT AT ALL GREASY. The best pizza we tried was the one with fresh Roma tomatoes and boccocini & fresh basil leaves. I also liked the fact that the sauce didn't seem to be heavily loaded with MSG as I was not dying of thirst for hours after (like I am with many other pizzas out there).
First time I’ve tried smoked salmon pizza, it was tasty. Two of us shared a large and we had leftovers for two days. They are generous with their toppings; I liked the addition of fresh dill on top as well as the lemon wedges on the side. The crust is thin and has crisp layers almost like a cracker. It’s really good to see a local pizza chain thrive, as the ambiance is excellent and just stands out from all those cookie cutter chain pizza places.
We'll be back to try the vegetarian pizzas, as I don't like meat topped pizzas I find them too greasy.
We tried this restaurant because we had an Entertainment coupon.
The pizzas range from $ 8.99 mini-pizza to $ 24.99 large pizza.
We thought we would have leftovers for 3 days but the two of us finished off the pizza.
The pizza crust is the star, thin & firm enough to hold up all the toppings. The toppings are fresh & there's lots of it.
In addition to the usual beverages, they also have Jones Soda and Barq's Root Beer.
I would come here again.
This place is like an old school pizza parlour, which was pretty cool...i split a large pizza with my friend...pizza was thin crust and had quality ingredients...however, it cost about $20 and it was special...$20 for ONE large thin crust pizza? Not worth it to me...you can get 2 larges at another pizza place for a little more, and it would have a thicker crust...beer on special is at decent price...
if you are a thin crust pizza connosieur, i would recommend this place...no denying that it is good pizza, but i don't the money.
