One of the BEST pizza places in town – I don't get why everyone says the people here are jerks, what do you expect? Do you want them to talk to you in a nice, calm and quiet voice while there's noise all around? I don't get it, just because someone isn't kissing your butt doesn't mean they lack in customer service. I think YOU'RE being sensitive. This is pizza not fine dining. Aside from that.. the pizza is DELICIOUS!! I've only had a "bad" experience once or twice of the hundreds of times I've been there through out my life. No one is perfect 100% of the time, you gotta cut people a break. The price is great for all the different combos you can get. I remember when you could draw on the tables with crayons! You guys rock, keep up the work and don't listen to the babies that are complaining.
Delicious Pizza! – I LOVE the pizza! Usually, I prefer thin crust pizza, but for this place, I can put my usual preferences aside. The sauce is delicious and the prices are reasonable for what you get. I almost never go in to the restaurant, so I can't comment on that experience. Their delivery is reliable and worth the call.
The good gone awfully bad – I used to go to this location for a pie quite frequently, but now with the service that talks down to you and makes you feel like the you are bothering them to order a pie. I will not go back. The last four times I have ordered a delivery pie I have gotten burnt cheese on the bottom of the pizza from the "customer service minded" staff not cleaning the ovens. Best of luck if you so choose to order from them.
Pizza on an oyster cracker. – We are from New York and don't expect much from Pizza here in Portland. That being said, there are some different, but tasty pizza options - like Hot Lips and Laurelwood. We came upon American Dream Pizza somewhat randomly. It was crowded and had cool things on the wall so for some reason, we thought that it would be okay. The sauce was good - but the crust was AWFUL!!!! I kept thinking that this must have been mistake. In these economic times, it's just not worth it.
Bad service, terrible crust, good concept – I go to this place every once in a while because I like one of their pizzas, the 5th beatle with hazelnuts blue cheese and onions, but as I eat more pizza in town i think i will opt to make my own 5th beatle pizza at home. The crust is awful at this place, they pre roll them and then the dough dries out or something, all in all its a really bad crust. I have never ever ever had anything but borderline rude service here, and it shows, the restaurant is really dirty and there doesn't seem to be much pride from the employees. The prices are way too high for the product. I would look past the service and prices and come here more often if the pizza was better.
Good Pie but very greasy – Great pie, definitely better than most in Portland. And if you have a heart attack from all of the grease you can get to the hospital fast!
There's some mild potential, but it's bad – We used to order from this place 2-3 years ago. It was never spectacular, but it was good enough. I moved back into the neighborhood recently and called for a delivery. The guy I talked to was a class-A a**hole - the kind of situation where the customer can't win. You can be as nice as possible, but these jerks have an ax to grind and they'll get their knives in. So I almost hung up on the spot, but I needed pizza. It arrived on time, within 45 minutes. I ordered a salad too. The salad was creased and soggy. Scarcely edible. The pizza itself showed some promise. The sauce had a decent flavor to it (there was potential), but the crust was old and cardboard like. They were generous with the toppings, but that still didn't save this lemon of a pizza.
Bad service, bad salads, weak crust, mediocre sauce, and little to no care taken in the actual construction of the pie. Another note: All of the 5 star reviews here are by shills. To tell a shill, just look to see how many OTHER reviews they've made. Every 5 star review for American Dream was the only review by that user. C'mon. Lying about the place won't help business, folks. Make a good pizza, hire credible help, and, you know, make an EFFORT. Like I said, this place used to be OK. Now it stinks. I hope their days are numbered. Garbage like this shouldn't be tolerated.
Horrible, Horrific, Run the oposite direction!! – It s pretty simple to understand why this place is still in business: only people staying at the hospital and that are tired of cafeteria food and need a walk would go there.
There are simply no other reason why someone would go there twice, go once and you ll understand. Better, go once with a few friends and just laugh at the terrible pizza and service you ll receive. There are tons of excellent pizza joints here in Portland and this one is by far the most disgusting pizza we have ever tested.
The employees absolutely don't give a c*ap about the service and how the food taste.
Beware!!! do not even mention they have overcharged you!!! They will give you a serious mean look!!
Not recommended, Not good, mean service, dirty, someone call shake that manager!! Hope you go out of business!!
By the way, the rating system is not working right, if you add up the stars I get an average of 3.6. what gives?
Dirty, Dirty, Dirty, and not in a good way – I agree with the other bad reviews. This place is dirty and the pizza tastes old and nasty. I recently walked across the street to order a pizza and have a beer while I waited because my friend just had a baby and was starving. As I had my first sip of beer I began watching and starting getting sick to my stomach. I witnessed 2 employees handling dirty dishes and then making salads. I left my beer and walked out without even remembering if I had paid. Well I didn't and it's a good thing. The only sad part is someone probably got my pizza and I'm sure it tasted bad because come to find out, the reason why half the time their pizza tastes old is because if they have screw ups they leave them in the oven and wait til someone else orders the same one. I decided to drive to Flying Pie and was not dissapointed.
PLEASE READ B/C YOUR HEALTH DEPENDS ON IT – I use to eat American Dream alot when I lived in the NE area. Since moving to SE I probably had it 2-4 times last year. Why? I couldn't tell you because it has gone sooooooooo down hill. I gave it chance after chance but finally gave up. Good thing I did because I was just informed by my good friend who works for the health bureau of Portland that recently American Dream had a big file aganist them after a health inspection. I guess one of the main things was they were caught using a knifr to cut chicken then cutting veggies without washing it. As everyone knows it could make you very sick. Also for the most disgusting of them all which I'm sure happens in alot of places, a employee had blown their nose and then took a pizza out of the oven without washing his hands. Hep C among other things could be spread that way. The weird thing is they knew they were going to have a under cover health personal coming in sometime during the months of Nov-Dec and still didn't seem to care. Obviously the manager is a flake. I hope I don't get my friend in trouble but just say you've been warned.
