“A Mistake..”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

We wanted to take a break from working around the house so I asked my son to get some sandwiches. Our local sandwich shop is always a winner. Unfortunately, it was Sunday and our usual was closed. He went to Oregano Joes, basically next door to our usual place. The place was empty. A few girls supposedly working were ignoring us. ...the food was very slow coming out. When we got the order home we found the food to be lacking in every way. It seems to be nearly impossible to sell food this bad. First the bread.. Supermarket fake Italian subs. They look good but taste like old time Wonder bread. The fillings were worse. Sausage and peppers was oily and skimpy. I found two pieces of bone in the sausage. It tasted as if it was cooked the day before. The chicken parm was soaked in tomato? sauce. The chicken was the pre breaded kind you would get in a school cafeteria. It was awful. This is not Italian food. Never again..

“Traditional Thin Crust Pizza Is Delicious”
Reviewed June 24, 2014

Very limited seating; more geared to take-out, however, we ordered and ate a speciality pizza (white clam) and it was very good. The pizza was brought to the table quickly with little fanfare. I noticed lunch specials very reasonably priced which I will try at a later date. The menu offered many pizza combinations and choices ALL moderately priced. This restaurant is certainly a good option for either a quick bite or take-out/delivery.

“Waste of money!!!”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

We order pizza every Friday night, 99.9% of the time from the same place, which we love. Unfortunately this was the 00.1% of the time we decided to try someplace different. Oregano Joes was the place we decided on, VERY BIG MISTAKE! The oly good thing about this place was the easy online ording. The pizza is absolutely horrible!!!! Don't waste your money!!! They claim they have New Haven style pizza, that's not the case! It sucks!! My apology to our regular pizza place, can't wait until next Friday's pizza night. The only way someone will give Oregano Joes a good review would be because they're a family member and feel sorry for them.
