Fresh Slice offers fresh, made to order pizza for take out and delivery as well as in-store pizza by the slice.
I decided to check this location, it was nothing similiar to my Park Royal experience. I found my service unfriendly, when asked what type of Pizza, she mumbled and looked as she would rather be somewhere else than inside here.
The Pizza I tried was 1 beef & 1 chicken onion pizza slices, the gloomy server, put both of my pizza in paper plate and from the first bite, the taste didn't even come close to my Park Royal experience. The pizza was soggy, limp, lack flavour and salty. I didn't even like the pizza crust, rather bland and hardly any flavour, what a disappointment. I expected too much, will not return to this location, and got what I paid for, Cheap deal with lackluster pizza.
Can't recommend. Park Royal is way better.
Mrs. C and I were craving a little pizza action and we wanted to try the new player here in NorthVan. We had a flyer for this joint, so we placed an order on the phone for pickup. The owner/manager was super friendly and kept calling me "my friend". I am usually a little uncomfortable being addressed this way by total strangers, but I think it was a cultural thing.
When we arrived to get the order we found the place to be clean and new looking. I checked out the w/c and it was clean too. I also noticed they had a small eating area for dine-in. The same guy I talked to on the phone (I think it is a one person operation) was waiting for us and provided the meat pizza and chicken wings we ordered. Before he put the pizza in the box he showed it to me and asked if it was "okay my friend". That was definitely a first.
The price was quite cheap for the quality of the food, and it was very tasty. Lots of toppings on the pizza, good size, and decent crust. Plus the wings were big and juicy. What more could I ask for, my friend?
In my opinion Fresh Slice is average at best. Toppings are sparse, and while their pizza is often tasty, I view it as the fast food giant of the 'local' pizza industry. I feel kinda bad for badmouthing them, considering I've been guilty of eating their pizza quite a few times, but it's more out of convenience than anything. It's great that a small local company has become a large chain, but I'll stick to the places that remain small and local.
A friend and I went here for lunch. We found the place to be extremely busy but the service was so fast we were in and out with our pieces of pizza to eat in the park very quickly.
This place is very clean and the workers are very friendly. The pizza was great. The crust was delicious. I loved that there were several pizzas out to choose what we wanted. It was not greasy, it was generous in the toppings. I will definitely be returning here again and again.
Fresh Slice is a revolution in the pizza world. No longer do we have to pay ridiculous Panago, Dominos or Pizza Hut prices, in order to achieve what we want out of a Pizza Pie. I consider myself a pizza affectionato , having wolfed down hundreds of pizza pies in my 40 years of existence. The professional, swift, and courteous manner, in which we were served, was indeed impressive. The price however, was the the real "deal breaker" in this transaction at only $10.49 for a 18" large wheel. I thought I was transformed back into the early 80"s with Billy Idol's, Rebel Yell, playing in the background as I ordered, considering the price I was paying. While mentioning my distaste for the neighbouring prices surrounding the local joint, I was awarded an additional discount. WINNING! Free parmigiano, fresh crushed chili peppers, and hot sauce all on tha house sealed the transaction to my wallets true pleasure. Above all, my bank account thanked me the next morning.! Long live Fresh Slice, or to a greater degree, long live my liver, as this pizza requires a strong one.!!
We tried this pizza for a delivery order. Although, the proprietor was very friendly and courteous. The actual pizza product was not noteworthy, in fact it was probably below average. The toppings seemed dry. Actually the whole pizza seemed dry somehow. Maybe it was lacking in sauce, or more likely freshness of ingredients was my guess. Quantity of toppings and cheese was average. Pizza size was a hit because their largest pizza is actually 16" compared to what seems to be the industry norm of 14". However, if the pizza is really just not that great and the toppings are not fresh and plentiful, then it doesn't really matter at all just how big the pie is afterall I suppose. No?
