“EXCELLENT Calzone!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013

The choices of calzone are amazing! I love calzones, so was extremely excited to try this place. The atmosphere is a pizzeria. Nothing special, but the service and the calzone is amazing. My husband got one of the specialty calzone and said is was delicious. I got a vegetarian one with pesto sauce and not ricotta, amazing! And the pest part is they have Pibb on tap! Will definitely be going back when we return this summer!

“Gets the Job Done When You're Drunk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

The food is decent enough. If I take it home, I usually stick it in the oven for a bit because the dough is chewy. They have tons of options and if you don't like any of the combinations, you can make your own. This is probably the most reliable, cheap (~$7) source of drunk food in Blacksburg. They also deliver.

“Solid food, plain atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012 via mobile

I have never eaten in a D.P. Dough restaurant before so didn't know what to expect. My wife and I had supper there about 6 PM on a Saturday evening before taking in a film at the lyric.

The interior is pretty stark, almost a warehouse atmosphere. The walls are covered with signs advertising their various calzones and a few other offerings. All calzones are baked on order, the signs warn you to be ready to wait about 15 minutes from the time you place your order.

We ordered a Roni Zoni calzone (pepperoni and 3 cheeses) and a Spinner Zone calzone (spinach and 3 cheeses. Each was $7.99 plus $1 for a self serve fountain drink. They were ready in less than 15 minutes. They were served in cardboard takeout boxes marked "eat-in" which served as our dishes.

The calzones are suitably large, a single one could be split between two persons for a fast lunch. But we're heavy on cheeses with remarkably less pepperoni and spinach. But all in all a good filling meal.

D.P. Dough offers free WiFi and a large screen TV. We were the only dinners at 6 PM but the placed was packed 2 hours later with VT students. As in most downtown Blacksburg, parking is scarce, but then this establishment caters mostly to students who are within walking distance.

“Good calzones! Not much atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2012

The food was good if you like calzones. There really isn't much variety and no atmosphere. It is probably very appealing to college students but it isn't a place I would go for dinner. Definitely for lunch though.

“Great find in great town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2012

Like others, we were at VT for our child's orientation. A new spot on Main street - always intriguing as I am an alum....used to be Mr. Foos when we were there! Great variety at D.P. Doughs and a nice find. We thoroughly enjoyed ours as carry-out.
