2005-05-11 01:37:21 I think what's kinda nice about this pizza place (besides the fact that I live right across the street from it) is that their toppings seem to be pretty high quality. When you order olives and mushrooms, for example, you get BIG slices of black olives and giant mushrooms. Makes it that much more flavorful, IMHO. —KalenRidenour
2005-06-02 18:22:47 I think Lamppost Pizza offers the best pizza quality wise, although the pepperoni can get kind of greasy. The size of the pizza/$ isn't the best deal, but their pizza's taste so good that it's worth spending some extra money. And the big screens do give a nice atmosphere when playoffs arrives. —BenLee
2005-06-06 00:12:05 Greasiest pepperoni ever, but I guess it works. —RohiniJasavala
2005-07-17 15:52:52 Until recently, they didn't have evening access to the bathrooms. This place can get quite crowded with Little Leaguers. —NoelBruening
2006-01-30 17:40:27 Their pizzas are a bit on the expensive side, but you can always find coupons for them in the PennySaver. I actually prefer Lamppost to Woodstock's, as shocking as that may be. —CarolynVerDuin
2006-03-05 18:31:10 I don't suggest fundraising with Lamppost Pizza because you don't get your check back soon. I fundraised there in Dec. '05 with an organization and we still have not received our check. —ChristineBui
2006-06-22 03:33:33 They have green olives! Yes! —DudeNude
2006-08-22 11:40:46 this is the best pizza in town. if they were located in downtown, they i bet they will easily beat woodstock's. i would have never known about this place if i didn't live right behind it. the only toppings i get is white garlic sauce with chicken and mushrooms. try this combination and you will never want to eat pizza anywhere else. the only problem is that they count chicken as two toppings and they also charge for the creamy garlic sauce even though you're not getting the tomato sauce. therefore, it can get pricey, but i always use their buy one pizza get one for $1 coupon so i can get two pizzas for under 20 bucks. Also they give you a lot of big slices of chicken so i guess its not too bad. They're flat screen tv's are awesome and they have whatever game you wanna watch. Dining area reminds me of most round table pizza's, large with comfortable seating. employees are young and cool. —PorkFoo
2006-09-14 15:39:09 Their pizza is good and the staff is nice. My favorite part about this place is they sell dough balls! You can get get a medium, large, or X-large dough ball for a cheap price and make your own pizza. The dough is QUITE good. —RathyMarie
2006-10-15 12:55:59 In their favor, this is the best pizza out of the places I've been in Davis. Pricey, though. My "gripe" is that although they advertise having the NFL Ticket, the employees don't know how to use it. The person working there said the manager is the only one who knows how to set it up, and since he wasn't there they could only show one game on all the screens. Two customers in the whole place, and one of them (me) ended up leaving. —TonyBraim
2006-10-16 10:27:02 Me, my boyfriend, and all the party-goers who come over to our place, LOVE this pizza! —RichardBobo
2007-02-25 21:04:34 Service was excellent. Came in on a rainy Saturday night past closing and they were very friendly and accomodating. Love the plasma tvs. —TerencePhan
2007-05-09 00:36:06 EXPENSIVE. Food is small-portioned and not that tasty. Wait time is long considering the fact that we were the only people there. Service is alright, although they didn't mention the 10% discount with student ID... —MikeHubby
2007-05-09 13:22:37 This is my favorite pizza-for-delivery place in Davis. That's not saying much, mind you, but it's something. —DanLawyer
2007-06-08 17:03:07 I can't believe the comments about this place - the pizza is TERRIBLE, as is everything else I've ever gotten here - I've been here twice, and went with a group of people the second time (big mistake), and everyone thought it was gross. Learned my lesson, though - will NEVER go back. If you're in the area and want good food, go to the mexican place - its cheap and excellent. —AcMach
2007-07-11 10:52:00 Grossly overpriced...You can get an order of breadsticka from Steve's pizza that are twice as good for literally half the price. Also, their sandwiches are a rip off...a small sandwickhwith barely any meat that comes with a salad on the side will run you upwards of $8. They should make the salad optional and charge $5 for the sandwich alone like other places. I will never eat here again, although it is a decent place to watch a game and drink some brew. —MikeJones
2007-07-19 18:45:11 About 10 years ago they had the best turkey sandwich —dickjones
2007-09-09 21:29:27 It's Sunday, and you've got a hankerin' for pizza. But Village Bakery is closed. Symposium is closed. What to do?? Lamppost Pizza is a fine alternative. While I wouldn't say it was amazing pizza, the bread was good, the sauce was good (the place where a lot of pizzas fail) and the toppings were fresh. I'd definitely get it again. As a nice bonus, it was prepared quickly. —CovertProfessor
2007-09-23 20:07:42 This place has the best pizza but must have the smallest delivery area in Davis. They won't deliver past the 80 freeway and they won't deliver past Pole Line Rd. That means if you live in one of the Wildhorse, Mace Ranch, or any other large neighborhood, you won't be able to get your pizza delivered. Seems like a bad business decision to me - especially with so many other delivery options available. —HenWeigh
No, it means if you're on the complete opposite side of Davis at this place, you're SOL. Look, Lamppost is as west as Davis can get. It's about exactly 4 miles to Pole Line. Most places in general don't go over 4 to 5 miles. It's just unlucky placement for them or you (depending how you see it). A bad business decision is doing 7, 8, 9 mile deliveries on city roads with all the stoplights and (evening) traffic, and stopsigns off of the major streets.. Not sure what other options they have, if you're referring to other pizza places - compare the location.
2007-10-05 02:39:52 I used to work here, and hated every minute of it. That being said, fresh out of the oven, it is one of the best tasting pizzas in Davis —DCWine
2007-10-08 11:33:39 Great hand tossed pizza, I will say to the people that say bad things about the pizza here 9you were raised on crap pizza so you don't know what good pizza taste like if do not like try again and then go back to what you are used to little Caesars" and see what you are missing) Lampost is great pizza and i am proud to eat here and will do so until i can't thank you lampost —Brians
2007-10-12 17:39:39 decent pizza, especially wiht green olives...mmm has anyone tried their burgers? or fries? —YooHyunOak
2008-07-07 17:29:44 The calzone is a great deal for under $8, and you get to choose 4 toppings at that price. I generally go chicken, bacon, and creamy garlic sauce. mmmmmmm.... —JoePomidor
2008-09-07 22:08:30 great service, good food, 20% discount on their website! —renee415
2008-11-24 22:02:19 Best Hawaiian style pizza ever! They are a bit expensive, but honestly it's worth it. I prefer their Hawaiian over the kinds types I have tried there (combo and meat lovers). The people who work there are also very nice. I have tried the calzone, and I did not like it only because the cheese on the outside kept falling off. Overall, best pizza in town. —Kiran
2009-01-10 17:25:17 Got a Super Aggie burger from here and no complaints. It was a bit pricey, but good food nonetheless. —AlexChiang
2009-03-16 22:02:41 Expensive...but ORGASMIC pizza. I tried a slice at a party once, and am still craving more of their delicious garlicky-cheese. MMM. —BrookeB
2009-04-03 15:00:24 The place was kinda dead last time I was in there. No vibe, just felt sort of sad. They seem to have nice TVs though, so maybe I'll be back for a sporting event one of these days. The food was more than decent. Love their buffalo wings... not too slimy or sour. —ChonT
2009-05-08 19:36:55 hella bomb. Medium is pretty big. —RealComputers
2009-07-23 10:23:16 I just heard that Lamppost is moving to the Howard Johnson's location out by Mace. The notice I received said 'moving'. Is this true? Or is it an additional location? —MattCzarnowski
If it's true, they're gonna have to do a lot of work. That place is basically an empty shell right now, and I haven't seen any new work done on it for at least six months. Still, if they did move, that would be very convenient for me! —JoePomidor
2009-07-23 13:10:13 They used to have an additional location on Chiles Road, on the other side of Mace. I'm not sure when it closed but I think I was there in 2000 or 2001. —NickSchmalenberger
2009-10-02 13:53:45 Lamppost pizza is your basic hometown pizzeria, with high prices. An extra large pizza will run you 25 dollars, before tax. They have some deals during the week, but all the deals still require you to spend over 20 bucks. Steves and Woodstocks do the same, but their pizzas are a little cheaper and they have better student discounts. Also, not unlike all restaurants at Westlake plaza, Lamppost is usually near empty and has zero vibe to it. How does anything stay in business in this plaza? —JakeJames
2009-10-27 14:31:46 I tried the pizza here for the first time a couple of weeks ago and really liked it. I've got to agree with most of the other comments: it's pricey, but some of the best pizza in town.
I just checked on their prices for pizza dough: $1 for a small, $2 for med., $3 for large, and $4 for extra large. This seems roughly comparable to the Nugget's house-made dough (frozen), which runs somewhere around $3.50 for enough dough for a 16" pizza. I'm going to give it a spin tonight, so we'll see how it compares! —TomGarberson
2009-11-13 17:09:17 I have never ordered anything from Lamppost that I haven't loved! Their pizzas are really good, I love their pepperoni, though it is rather greasy. They also do really nice salads and their online ordering makes things really easy. —ReeseLayton
2010-06-13 17:00:25 So, first comment of year. If only more recent, hence more timely, comments showed up first. Unlike everyone I know, I'm not a big fan of delivery. But tonight, I splurged and ordered from Lamppost, mainly because there was a coupon here (though isn't 10% pretty lame?). They said 20-25 minutes, turned out to be 35. Again, I guess I lack the big fan of delivery at all costs gene. Then, the pizza was totally wrong (and not for my palete :-( ). I called and they said they made a typo. So I'm taking the time to post this FWIW. Oh, and while I'm waiting for the re-delivery, I computed that in addition to overcharging me for a more expensive pizza, they neglected to take off the 10% (or is the food tax 23% hereabouts). Again, FWIW, they showed no interest in offering any kind of compensation or appreciation of my business for the mistake that THEY made and admit that THEY made. Anybody care to venture what my lack of success will be in getting a refund for the two overcharges...just back from the door—the answer is a big NO! —Listenup
2010-08-09 16:08:52 This pizza is sooooo great! Just thinking about it makes my mouth melt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! —JackieRodriguez
2010-12-30 00:21:04 My friends and I went there a few weeks ago. There was a coupon in the California Aggie that allowed you to buy two drinks and get a free medium pizza, so we jumped on it. The ad said "Just mention the California Aggie!". So we got there and the first of us tried to order this deal, and they stated we'd need a coupon. None of us really understood this, since the ad simply said to MENTION the California Aggie—there was no coupon—but we did as they asked and got the "coupon" by printing the page off the Aggie's website—one copy for each person. When we brought these in, the manager immediately said, "You don't think I'm going to let you just photocopy one paper, do you?". We proceeded to explain that these were each their own copy, directly from the website, and that clearly, all of us being students, we could get copies of the printed Aggie if we had to. As if we were trying to pull his teeth, the manager reluctantly gave us the deal (and maintained a bad attitude). The pizza was decent, but my friends and I will never go back there again due to this disrespectful treatment. Why did they place a deal in the Aggie that they didn't want to honor?! —JustinHorton
2011-02-13 12:22:50 We live in West Davis and discovered this place a year ago and since then we pretty much go every Friday. They have the best, freshest homemade style pizza and the atmosphere is reminiscent of a sports bar/grill, which we love. They always have awesome deals, but if you really want to get in the know — you should sign up for their text message deals and join their facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/lamppostpizzadavis) because they send out regular deals that you can't otherwise get. Like, buy one pizza get a second for $2!! Or you'll get a text msg on a Tuesday night when you don't feel like cooking and it will say something like: "Come in to Lamppost and get an XL 1 topping pizza for $12". The staff there is very cool — especially the one guy who manages at night (sorry I can't remember his name but he's really outgoing and loves to joke around with the customers) and often times you can see them flipping the pizza dough in the air while you hang out. Love that! The other thing we love about Lamppost is that they are open late (by Davis restaurant standards where 9pm is close!) and stay open during the week until 10pm and until 11pm on Friday/Saturdays. I wish more people knew about Lamppost because there are times when we've gone in and it's been somewhat empty (may be a symptom of college kids gone for the summer) but I'm also quiet fine with it being a West Davis only gem too. —Bryna
2011-03-17 16:42:23 The staff are very short with their customers and are quite rude as well with regards to coupons/discounts. You put out the coupons, so don't moan and groan about it when you have to honor them. —smittyhoy
2011-04-30 11:43:59 Lamppost Pizza has burned me before with poorly topped pizzas and pizzas so greasy it soaks through the entire bottom of the box, but I stuck by them due to their proximity and their pizzas usually being at least on-par, if not slightly better than Woodstocks. However, after receiving obnoxious attitude and a terrible pizza the other night, I don't think I'll be back.
We stopped in and ordered a pizza to-go, and while we were waiting decided to check out their arcade. They've got 3 games, a Cruisin' World, some 6 in 1 retro game cabinet, and Soul Calibur. All of them were 50 cents (quite the price for such ancient games). While my friend played Cruisin' World, I decided to play Pac-Man (Well, Ms. Pac-Man since it's what they had) since the machine already had a quarter in it and I've been on kind of a retro gaming kick. Mid-game, while I'm getting frustrated with what was possibly the worst arcade joystick I have ever used, I hear the cooks saying something about "those high guys in the arcade." Since we were the only people in the arcade, I listened a little closer to hear the cooks talking shit about us playing games. "What I don't understand is why Ms. Pac-Man!" What I don't understand is why you even care that I play Ms. Pac-Man, let alone any arcade game. So a little pissed off, our pizza comes and we leave.
We ordered a Margherita, and there was waaaaaay too much garlic on it. And I really love garlic, so that is saying something. It was practically inedible.
So I don't know if the cooks messed with our pizza because they thought we were high or didn't like us playing arcade games, or if it was just a crappily made pizza, either way we're done with the place. —AngryEnt
2011-10-26 19:12:55 You Know....I am getting rather sick of the horrible service and attitudes from these people. I mean really?? Do they absolutely always need to be such JERKS?>?>> I happen to live in there neighborhood. sometimes I feel like Something to eat from this establishment. But C'mon Really???? Their food is not that great!!!Why do they always need to be hating what they do so much? It's not our fault you are having a bad day every day... —ashleyinthemist
Hunh... I get take-out from them pretty often and have always been given friendly service. Sorry to hear that yours has not been. —CovertProfessor
Ditto. Always a friendly greeting and a smile when I'm in there, whether it's for food, just drinks, takeout, or just to pick up a dough ball or two. It's too bad you've had bad experiences. —TomGarberson
The long term managers (the chipper younger guy, and the nice lady) have been around Davis forever, and worked there for quite some time. They are always super friendly Daubert
2011-11-10 10:57:04 Updated 2/15/12** The burgers seem to have changed in December 2011 and I don't order them anymore. My guess is they changed the beef they are using. Can anyone verify this? They oven-cook the fries and season them, so they taste great and are relatively healthy for fries. The salads are good. The blue cheese dressing has lumps of real blue cheese in it. Yum. I have found their service to be very good for eat-in and take out. —ChollaCat
2011-12-28 19:25:30 Tried a calzone tonight. It was about $8.25 and was pretty big and pretty darn good. —MikeyCrews
2012-01-27 13:35:06 Their burger was surprisingly good. Not as good as B and B as the bun and bacon were both pretty ordinary, but still not a bad option for west Davis (it's a few bucks cheaper too). I didn't really care for the thick cut fries. The calzone(pepperonni, jalepeno, feta, olives) is still delicious. —MikeyCrews
2012-06-28 21:13:33 The food is ok, but I was a bit frustrated by the lack of baby changing station. You would think that a family restaurant would have that. When I asked them about it they said, "Yeah, we've been trying to get one for awhile, but haven't been able to put one in." Really? You've been in business in this town for how many years? It was so frustrating to try and change a 2-year old on the bathroom counter between the sinks. I might give it another try once the youngest is out of diapers, but until then, forget it. If you've got kids in diapers I'd avoid this place. —RichieB
2012-07-22 19:25:21 Of all the options for pizza in Davis, don't go here. Their pizza is expensive and they engage in false advertising with their coupons and discount offers. Coupon advertising 30% off and also advertising to order online. So we ordered online only to go to pick up the pizza and be told that our coupon was invalid because we ordered online. (not stated anywhere online or in the coupon). To top it off customer service was very rude. —Laurieanne
It sounds as though you may have been trying to get two discounts, one for online and one with a coupon? In my experience, restaurants rarely if ever allow you to combine discounts. —CovertProfessor
In order for you to get online coupons you need to enter the code for the coupon where it prompts you to ( Should be below your payment information). There isn't much they can do after you put your payment information in and send the order through. However if you ever have any questions about the online ordering or if it is glitching you can call in and one of the employees should be able to help you put your order through or just take your order over the phone. As for the prices it's not Domino's or Little Ceasars and the owner does a really good job sending out good coupons to make up for it a lot of the time. You can get the best deals by signing up for text/ email, if you go onto lamppostpizza.com/davis there is info on there on how to sign up. Sorry to hear you had a bad experience, whenever I go in it's enjoyable.—DittoBrown
2012-08-08 15:08:57 Lamppost is great pizza. I won't try to rank it among the several excellent pizza places in town, but it's among the best. It's also pricey, but unlike many of the other pricey and delicious pizza joints, they periodically offer really excellent deals. Among the deals are the occasional $10 off $25 or more coupons, some buy-one-get-one-free (or half off) coupons, and my personal favorite, the regular Monday and Tuesday deal: buy one pizza at regular price, get a second one (of equal or lesser value, obviously) for $3. You wind up with a couple of XL pizzas loaded with toppings/sauces for around $30 delivered, if I remember right. Heckuvalot cheaper than most of the other good pizza places in town, and a lot tastier than the budget options.
They also have very tasty chicken wings and reasonable beer prices (I think it's $12-14 for a pitcher of decent brew, including Mirror Pond). This is also a great place to buy dough balls if you want to make your own pizza. $1/2/3/4 for S/M/L/XL size, and the $3 large easily rolls out to a ~16" pie.
Service has always been friendly and delivery time estimates are pretty accurate. They also participate in the iDine program (Google it), letting you get 5% back on your purchases there. —TomGarberson
2012-12-28 13:55:15 I live on the other side of pole line and I was told by an employee that they don't deliver pass pole line?? HMMM?? I wouldn't mind driving to them if only they weren't so rude!! I'll stick to Woodstock's!
Being nice to your customer pays off!! —cuppiecake05
