Magic Oven is overrated, overpriced

dr_t | Nov 15, 2007 06:42 AM

some of the things from magic oven are very good, like their fettuccini pasta dish (which is the only thing i'd ever order from them), but others are just fair to poor in quality, like their pizza.

for prices like that you'd expect the pizza to taste better than it did. some parts were too salty and it wasn't even enjoyable.

on top of that, they messed up my order on numerous occasions, promised to give us credit on our next order (which we never got and there was no record of it and after a short argument ended up getting in the end)... they've also completely forgot about us and didn't deliver to us for about an hour where we had to call for it again and ask them what the deal was. the garlic spinach topping is brown from being overcooked and tastes nothing like garlic (or barely spinach for that matter).

magic oven is completely overrated and overpriced. they are poor quality and people there don't know how to make anything. they've messed up our order many times, which is very frustrating and unacceptable for a business. i don't know how they stayed in the game for this long (it must be all the crazy organic people who only go there because it's the only natural pizza shop). it's important to note that only maybe 1/8 of the items on the menu are organic (and that's probably a generous guess). the rest is claimed to be local (for the most part) and natural. i'm into natural and organic but i'd rather go somewhere else and pay less for a pizza i'd actually enjoy.
