“Excellent pizza- very original combos and other good non-pizza food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2012

We tried Dr. Ho's after reading several places that it was the best pizza in the Charlottesville area. We started with one of the appetizer specials- southeastern eggrolls. We weren't sure what they expect but they were incredible. Could have had a whole meal of them; even our 6 yr-old son who is very picky liked them. We also had pizza which was great; the crust was by far the best we have had since leaving the NY/NJ area 2 years ago. Service was good. They also had a good beer selection.

“Interesting place, great pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2012

First the food -- delicious. This is the authentic, thin-crust type of pizza. We had a half Popeye (spinach, caramelized onions, artichoke hearts, roasted garlic, mozzarella, cheddar, feta) and half Lil Mermaid (shrimp, house made basil pesto, roasted tomatoes, cheddar, feta, mozzarella cheese). Both were fantastic, but I gave the Lil Mermaid a slight edge. They don't volunteer it, but apparently locals know to ask for the whole wheat crust -- even better than white, they say.

The place itself -- If you were blindfolded until you got inside, you would think you were in downtown Charlottesville. Instead, it's in a small corner of a big white strip mall/gas station several miles south of town. Inside it's "cozy," with not a whole bunch of tables, and the place is busy (even up till closing time, which is surprisingly early at 9 p.m.) It has a hippie-like feel (syn. bohemian? "natural"?).

Only reason I don't give it a 5 is because the dishes weren't very clean. The plates felt like they had a thin layer of invisible gunk on them. But (shrug) it was invisible, and kinda went with the hippie-feel. It was great food, and we didn't get sick or anything, so they must have it figured out. :-)

We stayed in the area just one night -- but if we would have stayed longer, I definitely would have gone back (wife: for the vegetable lasagna highly rated by our B&B host).

“Amazing Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2011

Every single thing I ate was delicious. We shared the Popeye Pizza and the whole roasted garlic was such a perfect addition. Potato Leek soup is also a winner. I'll definitely return with family.
