“Good pizza!”
Reviewed August 7, 2009

My son was hungry for pizza for a quick lunch, so we decided to try the carryout special and take it back to our hotel. We all loved the pizza - even my daughter, who is really not a big pizza fan. I can't comment on the rest of the menu, but the pizza was definitely a hit!!

“I didn't care for it”
Reviewed April 22, 2009

When I want pizza, I want pizza! This was a thin cardboard tasting crust, and skimppy toppings, go to corner pizza or have corner deliver to you room.

“Maybe the pizza is good . . .”
Reviewed March 10, 2009

We made the mistake of not ordering the pizza. The chicken parm sandwich had chopped up chicken, not sliced chicken and wasn't very tasty. The "breadsticks" were pizza crust smothered in cheese. The wings were smothered in sauce that my husband called "cheap". One of the ovens had gone down and instead of explaining that, they told people it was a 30 minute wait when there were empty tables. All in all a disappointment.

“Great hospitality, Awesome drinks, what more can a visiting Serviceman ask for?!”
Reviewed February 22, 2009

I visited Virginia Beach 3 times last summer and we stumbled upon Dough Boys one fine afternoon. Our idea was to have a quick snack before we commenced a heavy session of drinking, however, we never actually got to order any food (it looked great by the way!!) The bar staff were so friendly we ended up staying here for 7 hours, trying all the different beers and shooters for a great price i might add.... Loved it so much, we went back the next time, to the same reception. If i'm fortunate enough to visit VA again, i'll definately be paying these guys a visit!!

“don't go there”
Reviewed February 9, 2009

pizza was vastly undercooked with chewy almost still wet dough
just plain crappy quality

absurdly priced soft drinks for kids- $2.59 each

pitiful beer selection- sam adams was best i could find

with tax and tip it costed nearly 50 bucks for my wife and 2 small kids to eat pizza for dinner

waitstaff seemed uninterested in our dining experience since she had already been allocated a mandatory 20% tip for our group of 9 people

i have never written a review before but i just plain felt taken advantage of and wanted to warn others
