I had been to a few other Oregano's before, and was always impressed. The food is usually 4 star worthy, but the service itself has always been 5 stars. I seriously cannot remember receiving such great service at a restaurant in a long time. My wife, son, and buddy who was out here from Vegas, decided to come down to this location before we went to the Padre game. We arrived at around 11:15 and were seated right away. We placed our order for a large garden salad, an order of garlic bread, a small stuffed pizza with sausage and spinach and a small pepperoni pan pizza. Here is how everything was............ Large Garden Salad- Oregano's salads are massive! They can feed a small army. We each ate about 2 bowls full, and there were still leftovers. Our waitress brought us our own individual dressings, too! It was a pretty basic salad, but it gave us something to eat while waiting for the pizzas to cook (45 minutes or so). The Italian dressing was very good! Garlic Bread- Solid! About a 2 foot long loaf of garlic bread. It had the perfect amount of butter/oil and garlic. It tasted great! I could have ate another loaf of it! Everyone at the table thought it was great! Stuffed Pizza- I had only had Oregano's stuffed pizza once before, and it was fantastic! My buddy is a huge sausage and spinach fan, so we went with those toppings. Their stuffed pizza is a sight to see! It's cut into 6 slices and each slice is about a pound. Oregano's sausage is fantastic! The spinach they use was pretty fresh, too. It was a good combo of flavors. We each ate 2 slices and were pretty much stuffed. I took the other 2 slices home for leftovers. Pan Pizza- This was the first time I had experienced their pan pizza. It was good, but not as good as their stuffed or thin crust Chicago style. We got this one mostly for my wife, but it turns out she really didn't care for it. She didn't like the sauce (Everyone that I have talked to that doesn't like Oregano's, doesn't like the sauce.) I ate one slice and we took home about 4 slices. Reheated the next day, it tasted fine. I don't know if I would get the pan pizza again, but there was nothing wrong with it and it was pretty tasty. On to why this place gets 5 stars.......THE SERVICE! Our waitress was absolutely awesome! She was very friendly, personable and happy. She kept our drinks filled, plates cleared etc. She even mentioned that we were the most easy going table she had all day and that she appreciated our laid back attitude. Nice! Every other employee I encountered was very welcoming, too. That is 3 for 3 on different Oregano's, as far as receiving beyond excellent service. That alone will keep me coming back! Food is a solid 4, but the service always bumps it up to a 5 IMO.
