Phoenix New Times' Description
If you go to Oregano's, go hungry. Or take friends. Even the salads at this mini-chain are beyond gigantic. The thin-crust pizza is a crowd pleaser, and the menu is packed with cute word plays (we love the ad campaign, which includes billboards with sayings like "Legalize Marinara") and a selection of pasta, sandwiches, wings and the aforementioned pizza and salad. Grab a beer and settle in for the inevitable wait - this place is popular. Call ahead or enjoy the pizza samples while you ponder your order.
Tips from foursquare
Much less busy than the Tempe location, though leave an hour for takeout on the weekends.
You MUST save room for a pizookie
The garlic bread is a must have! It's the best ever!!
Try The Original Pizza Cookie for dessert!
Get a Pizookie on 4/19 in honor of me getting rear ended by a car doing 40mph while on my bicycle in front of the store. (Happened on 4/19/05)
