While on a visit to Portland, we were in the REI store and asked one of the clerks for a suggestion for a nearby place for lunch. We were walking. She suggested Hot Lips and gave us directions.

When we arrived, the place was packed, a good sign. Looking at the wide selection of ready cooked pizzas, it was hard to pick one. We could have asked for one to be made, but we did not want to wait, and the ones already prepared looked delicious. They were moving quickly, so we were not concerned about getting something that had been sitting for a long time.

We each picked a slice of the their ABC, artichoke hearts, bacon and house smoked free range chicken, with spinach and mushrooms. It was delicious, some of the best pizza we have had. The portion size was very generous too.

If we had taken the time to order, we would have asked for a pizza with whole wheat crust. It was nice to see that this is an option. They also have vegetarian and vegan choices, so there is something for everyone.

We did not know anything about their system, but we found everyone to be very friendly and helpful, always something nice to encounter.

If you are looking for some fast slices, this will fit the bill, but nothing outstanding about their Pizza.....

Stopped here as part of a pedal bike tour. I don't think I've ever tasted a fresher tasting piece of pizza. I had some kind of a veggie and it was delicious. If we lived in Oregon we would be regulars. Also tried the strawberry soda also delicious.

The pizzas we ordered was very creative and very tasty but I wouldn't be taking the time to write this review if we hadn't gotten such great service from Josh. We ordered for delivery and our pizzas arrived quickly but unfortunately the Daiya cheese I'd asked for was conspicuously absent. We ordered close to closing time and mistakes happen and we were so hungry from our travels that we didn't care that much but we felt like we at least deserved a refund on the extra couple of dollars that we'd paid for the cheese. When we called back, we were handed off to Josh who offered to give us a very generous discount on our next order. When we explained that we were just visiting Portland and we probably wouldn't have a chance to order
again anytime soon, he didn't hesitate to give us the discount as a refund then and there! He also let us know when he'd be working again so we could call him back if we had any difficulties with the refund to our card.

If you're looking for pizza that is a tasty step up from your average delivery, Hot Lips Pizza is great choice. And, if everyone there is a nice as Josh and the friendly delivery girl that brought our pizzas, you'll be very happy with the service, too!

They use seasonal ingredients and their omnivore deep dish is just loaded with good things. We never eat any other pizza.
