    Just Change Your Name

    We live in the area, so this place is convenient, but that's about all it has going.

    We've been quite a few times but the last time was just ridiculous. My boyfriend has a slightly out of ordinary name and he is used to people having a hard time pronouncing it. The pronunciation was so off that he didn't recognize it, so he waited quite a bit longer not realizing they had already called his name. So when he went up to grab the pizza he apologized. The guy behind the counter responded that maybe my boyfriend should change his name or use a different name to order with. To add insult to injury the pizza wasn't even good.

    Never going back again. Biggest jerks in Portland

    I gave them a 2 star because if they actually cook the pizza it can be good. If they dont? Just save yourself the hassle and take it home to cook it. They act like they are the only pizza joint in Portland. We love the quirkiness of the place and pizza is the kind we like. Thick crust, lots of big toppings, decent salad bar. But we have given them several chances to change their who gives a damn attitude and crummy service. I had emailed back and forth to the owner about the issues we have had with each location and I got nothing. Just a weak apology and a, ""I do the best I can, not much more I can do"" Not only did we not get at least a coupon for a free pitcher of soda for our troubles, we got taken off the birthday list so we no longer get the birthday coupon, Really? As for the other locations? The one in Tualatin Extremely rude! We were the only ones in the restaurant when a gal on crutches comes in. She orders, sits down at a near table. They call her. She tries to get up and has trouble. They holler even louder-looking straight at her and throw it down on the counter like he is so busy and bothered and walk away. I walk over, tell her to sit and went and got her the pizza and a drink. When I grabbed it I asked the guy wth is wrong with you?! Didnt you see she has problems? He snarled at me and walked away again. When I said something to the guy making pizza he said that was the manager. ??!
    I work way to hard for my money to waste it on jerks. We will be locating the nice guy-loves their customers pizza joint who will apreciate us.

    Teen & Parent Friendly

    I called Flying Pie to reserve a pizza party for my son's birthday with 20 of his closest friends. The staff was absolutely wonderful to work with from 1st the phone call to
    how well they treated me and the party members. The food was delicious and the kids were able to just hang out and not feel rushed. I have always had good experience at Flying Pie and I and am so glad I called for this event!

    Cool Decor - Lower than Average Pizza

    I had memories of the awesomeness that was Flying Pie when I was in high school and apparently didn't know better. We used to hang out there all the time!

    Either it was lack of experience talking, or they've gone extremely downhill in the past 10-15 years.

    The decor is uniquely Portland. In that, I thought it was a great place to take some friends from out of town... but I was embarrassed by the time we left.

    The place just felt... dirty. Dusty, grimy, the tables were kind of sticky. And the pizza was not that of my memories. The crust was kind of yeasty - like the dough had sat too long. And speaking of sitting, it tasted like it had been hanging out a while too. Given how long it took for our order to come up, I imagine it was sitting for a while before they got around to letting us know.

    I wish I could take back this visit and have the memories of my youth untarnished.

    Hands down the best pizza

    I take the family + extended family out to pizza once a month. We like to try different places, but end up coming back to flying pie more often than not due to the consistently great tasting pizza. We know that coming to flying pie we'll get plenty of toppings on our pizza's and a nice atmosphere. The pies cost a little more than i'd like to spend, but you really do get what you pay for with this place. I've paid similar prices at other pizza restaurants (hot lips) and was very dissapointed. I like the decor + the candles at the tables. When your pizza arrives they're placed on special pizza holders over the candles on your table which helps keep your pizza warm while dining + making a nice ambience. We're going there tonight for $2 dollar tuesday movies at the academy theatre and then pizza at flying pie next door :)

    Look out! Flying Pie!

    Flying Pie. I was a bit hesitant to try this place since they had so many locations around and thought it would be ""not so original chain pizza""... but decided to try it since they're one of the few places that offer gluten-free crust. Dude. I ordered a gluten-free pie and I was pleasantly surprised. Piled high with toppings! I mean it. Every time i go there it's the same... BAM! Like there was a mushroom, olive, mozzarella avalanche in the kitchen! The cheese they use is top quality and boy do they cover that pizza with it. I believe they use Nu-grain gluten-free crusts which are used in a few other pizza parlors around town. A good tasting, thin crust that somehow magically holds the toppings they dump on there. Their house dough/crust is good too. A little thicker than I like... but it tastes very good. They also sell pizza by the slice 11-4. Go check em out. The Academy Theatre next door sells Flying Pie by the slice too.

    Best Pizza Around

    So delicious. They are really generous with the toppings, so you get a lot of food for a really reasonable price. Recommend to all. I love this pizza!!!

    Damn Good Pizza

    I am a frequent customer of all locations- pizza is always great! Whole milk mozzarella and hand tossed crust makes all the difference. The small cheese will feed 2 and its only $10! It's so good, I won't go anywhere else and when I'm craving pizza- they are the only to satisfy.

    Pizza Nightmare!!!!!

    Just in shock at all of the 5 star rating this place gets. I was a fan of the one in_____, but the one here in Portland is worst place I have ever eaten in my entire life! I was over charged for the most disgusting slice of pizza I have ever seen- that took 35 min to prepare! The employees were rude, slow and really really dirty looking - and I have to mention very bad at math. The whole place was as filthy as it gets. I'm stunned that that this place stays in business, but even more shocked that it has not been shut down for it's dirty condition. ****Can't stress enough that this place is a stomach infections' best friend. Just don't go.

    Making me sick

    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.

    Not worth the time or money

    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.

    I wish I could talk to the manager...

    And let him / her know how bad of a job he / she is doing with this place. It has great potential, the location is great and who doesn't love pizza? I won t go in detail with how I was treated by the employees or how bad the food was... Let me just leave it to: This is one of the few places a man will remember their entire life and will deeply hate. If I ever see the owner of this place, I would RUN up to him and let them know what I think of his work. I hope this place SINKS and never open anywhere else. What a shack!

    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.
