Dagwood'S serves pizzaz, calizones, subs, and pastas. It has a rather large selection of pizzas. We built our own pizza. In addition to the usual items on a veggie pizza, we asked for half of the cheese ingradient and added a few additional items to our large size pizza. We had not been th Dagwood's before and hoped that our... More

I've probably eaten here 100x in the over the last 20+ years. This location (much like Wilshire and Lincoln) was a graveyard intersection for restaurants. Dagwoods finally made it. I pretty much have their turkey sub or their spaghetti and meat sauce. For quick dining, the spaghetti and meatsauce is the best in SM. Turkey sub is also very good.... More

This is a mid-tier pizza, salad and brew house restaurant. Very much stop and go. However, the salads and pizzas are delicious and they have a small selection of delicious cheesecake and wine. A very nice lunch spot or a quick snack during late evening.

We hadn't been to Dagwood's in awhile but stopped in for dinner. We each had the salad and slice of pizza special for $8.95. The salad was larger than a normal dinner salad with olives, garbanzos, tomatoes, a good Italian salad. The slice was huge the equivalent of 2-3 normal pizza slices. They have renovated their dining room, removing some... More

Ordered a salad. Gave up after waiting 20 minutes. Only three other customers in the whole place. Never had this issue under the prior mgmt. I preferred the old pizza recipe as well.

A big slice of pizza with a salad (black olives and garbanzo beans... yum) and a drink... special more than worth it!! Small place newly remodeled (read cleaned up!) makes for fun quick lunch... outside tables nice, too.

There is nothing special about the pizza. Crust is ok, but overcooked. Sauce is mediocre and pepperoni is too spicy for pizza.

Ordered pizza and salad to our hotel room on a Saturday night. Price was reasonable and delivery was expected to be 45 min. Food turned up to our room in about 30 min. The caesar salad was very good and I highly recommend it. The pizza has a new, thin base which I quite enjoyed. Pizzas were as expected, tasty... More

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
