As a student, I used to frequent this place when it first opened. However, in my last visit years ago, they charged me full price for a slice of pizza that was half of the usual size. I didn't say anything cuz I was shocked and figured I would never go back again.
I gave them another chance though so that I can compare to it to Uncle Fatih's once again. They dough is more chewy than Uncle Fatih's. Slice of pizza isn't warmed up so it's the same for both places. Less toppings though so that's why I gave it two stars. Lots of varieties to choose from. Service was simple. Pick the slice that you want. Decent pizza if you don't want to cross the street for Uncle Fatih's super loaded with toppings pizzas.
I was passing by last weekend and needed a quick snack. It was either Megabite or Uncle Fatih's (neither of which I've tried before). Since I was pressed for time, I chose the closest to me, which was Megabite.
It is what it is, a dollar pizza joint. It's geared towards the liking of the fast passing crowd, and I wouldn't expect more. A quick in and out kind of place that doesn't aim to please on the service side - hence the ambiance. Very bare and minimal. If I were to open an eatery at a busy skytrain station, I wouldn't spend a lot of money on the interior either.
However, I didn't really like the layout of the restaurant. There's an entrance at each end with the cashier in the middle, so when it gets busy, it's confusing where the lineup starts which can start to anger a few people.
At $1.50 per slice, it's a good deal. I guess the days of true $1 slices are gone. Tip: if there's less than 4 pies ready, wait a few minutes longer. It means more is on its way. They usually have at least 6-8 pies to choose from.
The pizza slices were of average quality and quantity. The fact that we can put on more sauce really got me hyped. The extra sauce made it taste much better and less dry. The pricing in my opinion is alright. If you are on your way to school, it makes for a good, fast snack on the run (assuming there is no line up).
What a dilemma, choosing uncle fatih's or megabites...I find megabite's dough is softer/soggier which means when you hold the pizza, it's gonna bend whereas uncle fatih's dough is sturdier and stays flat (it's a little drier) Megabite's cheese looks more white...which affects the flavour how? Maybe it's just in my head, but megabite's cheese seems to be just a little more flavourful than uncle fatih's. The texture is a bit chewier. For the crust, they do have sesame seeds but lack of herbs. I like uncle fatih's crust better it's crispier, in other words less doughy.
If I'm craving for a meatball/pesto slice, I'll go to uncle fatih's. For megabites, I love their vegetarian one with the whole mushrooms, uncle faith's doesn't have that kind.
Rushing during an busy student's evening meant I didn't have time to cross the street where I stayed faithful to Uncle Fatih's since the day it opened. I hopped off the 99 B line to find myself face to face with Megabite, and walked through it to grab a slice and head onto the skytrain. I thought, just one slice would not hurt. A fresh pizza had just come out of the oven, without even a slice missing. I thought it was meatball, with its meat coloured balls amongst motzerella cheese. I did my usual squirt of ranch sauce along the thicker-than-Fatih's crust and sprinkled parmesan and ran out the door. As I bit in while on the skytrain platform, a delicious explosion of mushroom, garlic, parmesan and creamy cheese partied in my mouth. It wasn't meatball, it was mushroom. and it was delicious. Yes, less herbs, yes, no veggies piled on. But that was some flavourful cheese, better than that at Fatih's. I'm sorry Uncle Fatih's, but this rival pizzeria definately is packing some serious punches. My next pizza slice will be a tough choice to make. Megabites Pizza rivals that of Fatihs, at least for that whole mushroom slice.
Went in after work the other night and ordered a pizza for take-out. Waited what seemed like a long time, but I wasn't in a rush. Got the pizza and went home. I ordered one of their specialty pizzas which was supposed to have olives and mushrooms (2 of my favourite toppings) and I immediately noticed the pizza didn't have any olives or mushrooms or even pineapples. I checked the order receipt and it listed the correct pizza with the correct ingredients, but the pizza itself is missing certain toppings. Maybe if the pizza were missing 1 topping, it wouldn't matter too much, but 3? I suspect these guys might be shaving toppings off take-out orders to save money, in the hopes the take-out customer won't notice until they get home. I decided not to complain, since the food was kind of banal, and driving back to get a refund or another pizza wasn't even worth the time and gas. Caveat emptor!
The take-out pamphlet's list the place now as '4 Brothers' and the superpages.ca listing is the same... although the web site included in the listing is still for Megabite (?).
Since they're calling themselves 4 Brothers, I've started a 4 Brothers listing on this site, too.
You're right about the food, though. Hot and yummy!
Okay, so if you're in a hurry or just passing by, this place is yummy. The ingredients are fresh and the staff are friendly. The drinks are always cold and you must try the gelato(my favorite: Raspberry Cheesecake).:)
my grandson is here so i think let's order a pizza. moved into this area not too long ago, so figure, let's try a new one - megabite, right on kingsway. phone there, and all i get is a telephone message telling me about their hours of operation (which includes THIS hour) and that i should return during regular hours. weird. so i call the commercial and broadway one. takes me forever to explain to them that the kingsway location isn't responding. the woman finally says to order online. i order online, get a confirmation. over an hour later, no pizza. i call. "oh," she says, "you're too far away!" and "i tried to phone you." (no phone call, of course).
i'm fuming, my grandson is starving, and now we've ordered from domino's.
I created an account specifically to review this pizza place because it was so horrible and I lost 25$.
First: the crust is not regular stretchy pizza dough crust. It's like, frozen bagel dough crust or something and it tasted slimy and gross. Then they put sesame seeds along the rim of the crust, which is kinda gross, but that in itself was not a huge issue.
Second: the sauce is very old-tasting, like it's from a super old can or like powered packet or something.
Third: the cheese is not nicely toasted as it's drowned by a mountain of toppings. This mountain of toppings would be a bonus if they were fresh, but they were not.
I got suckered in by the deals/relatively low prices and the fact you can order online, but srsly, don't order a whole pizza from these people.
I'm not even that picky when it comes to pizza, I enjoy Panago and even some frozen pizzas. But this was just inedible. And I can eat almost anything.
Ordered two pizzas from them recently. Not only were they cold, they were the wrong pizzas too! I can't help but wonder if Megabite deliberately gave us old ones to save time and effort. Yuck. Delivery guy seemed nice, too nice. Apparently, he didn't need a tip and it only added to my suspicion. I'll stick with good old Fatih's, who has been consistant with my orders. I chose Megabite over Uncle Fatih's that time because I didn't have cash on me, and Fatih's doesn't accept credit cards. Now, I know better!
Fast and cheap. $4 for two slices (not as big as they used to be, still on the large side) plus a pop. They take Debit (unline a lot of similar joiunts). Free Ranch sauce and hot sauce. Sometimes there's cheese, too.
Not as good as it used to be. Uncle Faith's is better quality, value and the people are a touch friendlier. Although, niether places are going to win the award for super social skills anytime soon...
I ordered a BBQ chicken pizza tonight, and it took an hour and a half to show up. I called after an hour, and was told it would be there very soon. When 90 mins transpired my pizza showed up lukewarm. As if that wasn't bad enough, the chicken was not visible.
When I ate a slice, I noticed that all the chicken was shredded beyond recognition and under the cheese, causing a slippery mess.
Ever had a tuna sandwhich? That's what this chicken was like. It was gross. The crust was white on the bottom too, and excessively greasy because it hadn't been cooked long enough.
I called to ask why this all happened, and the person argued with me and refused to believe that my pizza was remotely flawed.
I will never give Megabite my business again. I feel sick, and in more ways than one.
I've ordered from this place a few times, and they frequently get my order wrong. However, the pizza has always been pretty good, until tonight. I decided to try the gluten free crust this time. I ordered the pestate pizza (hold the cheese). It arrived in about an hour and they remembered to hold the cheese (which often they don't). When I picked up a slice it was actually dripping with grease, The top had pools of grease and the crust looked like it had been soaked in it. It was mostly inedible. I've never had such gross pizza before. I don't know if it was the gluten free crust or the pestate pizza but it was absolutely gross.
Sometimes you just don't want to leave your couch. Sometimes, it's super late at night and you're craving pizza. I love Megabite and Im reasonably close to this location, but even at 1am it's packed! This is great, it shows that many people in Vancouver feel the same way I do (that Megabite is by far the best pizza in the city), the masses have spoken!
Luckily they can also accommodate my couch potato state and I can order from them online! There is a full menu on their website and you can actually view the flyer for whichever location you are ordering from to see the current combos and deals. In fact, there are pictures of each and every pizza on the online menu. They say your eyes can be bigger than your stomach, and this is a really delicious test. I chose the Gourmet Pesto veggie pizza, it just looked so good, and grabbed myself a can of Coke.
I was so easy to order online and it came quickly too! Only about 30-40 minutes, and the pizza arrived hot and fresh. Pesto sauce, spinach, artichoke, sun dried tomatoes, feta = heaven. The perfect midnight meal and I didn't even have to get up!
Megabite Pizza (as well as this particular location) has to be THE staple for delicious and affordable Vancouver style pizza. Located right at the Commercial/Broadway Skytrain station, this place is always packed with transit riders and citizens of the Drive looking for something that will end their hunger. Seriously, rarely if ever can I be at Commercial Drive and not stop in for a slice or two.
First off, there's always an excellent selection of both meat and veggie pizzas available. There's also always fresh pizza coming out as soon as customers finish buying slices of another, so they'll pretty much always have something that appeals to everyone. The pizza's always fresh because people buy it before it gets a chance to cool off! If you ever read a review stating that the pizza in the warmer is old, don't believe it. I eat here quite often and I've never once experienced this.
Secondly, 2 slices of pizza and a pop for $5 is unbeatable when it's pizza of this quality. After the first time of trying Megabite (many years ago now) I immediately failed to see why I would want to give my money to any of these other cheap imitation pizza by the slice places. You get two big, fresh slices (spicy mushroom? meat lovers? tropical chicken? They've even had donair and most recently a hot dog pizza!) that will hands down beat any other slice on the Drive (here's looking at you, competitor across the street).
They also have great specials on take out, delivery, and online orders. Next time you're in the area grab a slice and a flyer so you can see the full menu of pizzas as well as rad deals.
Yummy, yummy pizza. I'm giving it FIVE BIG stars! Why? They take pizza creations to a whole new level. Buffalo chicken pizza is just one of them. My son is addicted to their pepperoni pizza.
It tastes so great and so fresh, unlike some of the greasy joints.
We always get their pick up specials. $6.99 large pepperoni is just irresistible.
i too decided to get an account on this site just so i can write a bad review for this pizza restaurant. it took two hours from the time our order was placed to when the pizza showed up at our door. when a call was made to complain, the manager hung up on me. obviously they don't need my business again. i will be happy to go to one of the other 20 pizza places on the drive next time.
What made me curious about this place is that it is always packed even beyond 1-2am. I did'nt wan to line up so I had mine delivered. Works like a charm every time. Prices are very reasonable and they always have great promos.
Also, they have stores located all over downtown. I'm not really a fan of how the stores look like that is why I'd rather have them deliver my pizza, wings and free drinks.
If you're looking for great value and ease of use delivery online system, try Megabite Pizza.
Food's mediocre. I'd rate the pizza about a 2 out of 10, just a little better than the frozen supermarket variety. Looks much like your average subway hole-in-the-wall pizza stall. Staff has no time for pick up customers and can outright ignore you if you line up at a till instead of hopping in line for "by the slice" service. Some female staff members wear nothing but nylons and thong underwear, which is entirely visible, and have a matching attitude.
