    I was craving something beyond the usual sandwich fare from my Ft Lauderdale hotel, and ordered dinner from Dough Boys, tantalized by the description of the veggie calzone, which promised to be loaded with broccoli, zucchini, mushrooms, onions, green peppers, and garlic. I was told delivery would be ""about 50 minutes."" One hour and twenty minutes later, my order arrived stone cold to the touch. The calzone was a swimmy, disgusting mess that was about 95% ricotta. I could have fit all the vegetables into a shot glass. The whole wheat crust was dry and tough. The marinara was swimming in oil, and tasted like the cheapest canned tomato sauce you could buy in the market. \r \r I had also ordered a side salad with ""NO OLIVES,"" and ironically, it arrived swimming in olives. \r \r When I phoned the restaurant back to let them know how their food had arrived, I was told that they would send me out a new one, and I could return the uneated portion to the driver. Unwilling to wait at least another hour for what should have been done right the first time, I asked them to credit my card for the calzone. I was told, ""that's not our policy."" \r \r With all the pizza places in the Ft Lauderdale area, there is NO WAY I will ever give Dough Boys my business again. Shame on them.
