Once in a while, you come across a little restaurant with humble goals. Concentrate on one type of food, do it well, and keep the price down. That pretty much sums up The Dough Co. Is it fancy food that you can feel snooty about? No. Is it pretty good? Yes. Is this a boring review?

Located not far from the UO campus (they also have another location downtown somewhere), The Dough Co. is anything but pretentious. The decor is basic red, white, black, and durable. Ideal for drunk kindergarten kids and/or rambunctious college students. (Huh?)

They specialize is calzones. About 30 or so different types. Basically, small pizzas folded over on themselves to make a pocket-type thingy.

Hmmm…What else can I say? The price is reasonable. The counter service is ok (although one guy talks so quietly, I can only guess what he was saying). The preparation timing is slightly long-ish for such a simple food, but they have a TV for customers to watch, so the wait is bearable.

The final product tastes good too. Some of the items are a little oily, but what do you expect from a pizza wrapped up to prevent oil from dripping off? Order more veggie-focused items if oil is not your thing.

Tuesdays you can get two calzones for $10. About 15% less than normal price. So if you are a starving student, Tuesday’s the day to go.

Warning: As with most calzones, the filling inside is molten lava hot. Hotter than the sun hot. Hotter than McDonald’s-coffee-in-your-lap hot. So cut it open when you get it and then wait for it to cool down. Now wait 2 more minutes. Now bite into it and scald your tongue and chin with the burning hot sauce. Put it down and wait another 5 minutes. OK, now eat. Enjoy.

Like I said, it’s a simple place serving simple food and doing a good job of it. Aside from the molten excitement, it’s a quite predictable and reasonable simple meal. I give it a thumbs up and 3 stars.
