Food: Pizza is Pizza! The Curry pizza is pretty good, but I like the classic pepperoni with cheese.
Service: Slow - only one guy (possibly the owner) runs the counter. I waited in line for 15mins for a slice of pizza. The busy time is between 11:30am - 12:30pm - when a nearby high school lets out for lunch.
Ambiance: Small and Loud - There is a few chairs for seating (normal for a small pizza joint). There is no windows so it get really steamy in there. There is no room to move arond. The line up starts at the door and winds into the streets.
Quick lunch - may come back during non busy hours!
Oily and greasy pizza. Uminspired flavour and ingredient combinations. Save your money and buy a Rockey Mountain pizza from Donald's market on the drive and enjoy it at home. Hole in the wall with service lacking.
This place has great food for a reasonable price but if you decide on eating here during lunch hours then be prepared, cause the line will be very long due to the students at Britannia Secondary School.
after 12pm i think the price goes up by 50 cents.
highly recommended for a quick bite.
service: ok but slow because there are 2 servers.
It's definately a hole in the wall but the pizza was delicious. My kids actually ate the crust. How often does that happen?
The guy who took my phone order didn't sound very enthusiastic, even when i called to compliment on the food. But don't let that deter you from going there. He might be ESL.
Try the chicken, feta and spinach pizza.
I went there this morning at 10:25,Sunday. There was so many people waiting for the pizza coming out from the oven. I had each of Greek and vegi, my boyfriend had blue cheese and beef. They are sooooo good!! I told my boyfriend that i want to come back again and again, he said the same thing to me too. About the service, there was only a girl keep making pizza plus being a cashier. However, this is a small pizza place,you dont really need "service" but a tasty pizza.
2>look at assortment of slices
3>order (i recommend AVOIDING the pesto pizza unless you love gall bladder attacks)
Do NOT, repeat, NOT look at the filthy baseboards or the multitude of dead flies in the lighting fixtures or you will be REPULSED by the sheer filth and grime.
If you have the courage, you will get pretty decent pizza with some interesting flavour combinations at an excellent price.
We're spoiled for choice at my end of town, with no less than 6 slice
merchants between Venables and the Skytrain, and I may be the only one, but I think this is the best pizza on the Drive, and in the running for best value slice city-wide. And I should know, since I've spent a lot of time at these places.
There is something about Pizza Garden, be it the big warm yellow sign out front, the always-full and glistening display racks or the fact that it is never EVER empty, that makes it nearly impossible to walk past. I'll be carrying home a dozen bags of groceries and fresh ingredients for dinner and still stop, wedge them all under one arm and snack on a capicolla / mushroom / sausagey treat.
This is one of many $1.50 joints, in the company of Megabite, Numero Uno, Urban Grain, etc. that make fairly obscure (and delicious) concoctions as routinely as the basic pepperoni or veggie. There are usually 6 or 7 different pies or half pies ready to go, and they're almost always hot. Anyone who has issues with hygiene will be pleased with the transparency of the whole operation, if not with the lingering cold of the server / cashier.
PG must use a special sauce because I swear it's sweeter than most. Either that or it's turned. Either way, I love it. Love it to death. Love it despite it always feeling crowded, with the design such that one cannot exit easily if there is even one other person in line. There's usually someone with a backpack taking up half the space in side, but that's not really an issue because it's not a place to hang out, what with the scourges of humanity lingering all around. Just go in, get your little slice of heaven and leave.
Then come back. Again and again.
Their pizza's okay but pretty greasy. Have fun trying to get it delivered though. I live about 10 min. away and have given up on them. First time was fine, then they lost my order and delivered it a hour late, and now this time my place is suddenly too far away (wtf?!) If your pizza place only delivers within walking distance, you probably should say so on your delivery menu!
If you good, cheap pizza by the slice, you can't go wrong here. The variety they have is outstanding - usually the kind you won't get unless you have it made to order. I had one with spinach and feta that was so delicious. The pizza is on the thin side which is how I like it, but also crispy. There's sesame seeds sprinkled on the crust which is unusual but very good for the crunch. I'll come back again and again to try the different flavors.
