I like the slow and steady model myself. We went there on a Sunday morning right at opening time and got right in and had our food almost too fast. Pizza was great, but I don't think the oven was hot enough because it was warm at best. It did get packed pretty quick, though, and I can imagine the wait can get pretty bad later in the day. Mama Lee's followed this same model and it worked great for them. Maybe the owner is short on capital and can't afford to expand right away. I'm also guessing he wasn't expecting to become a national sensation (thanks to Guy) when he was thinking up the place. That show is what got us in there.

My Dentist is in that big building next to that strip mall where DOUGH is. I just wanted a pizza to go after all the numbing and pain. It was real crowded and I didn't know what to order. I tried to hide but they found me. I ordered a pizza but I don't know what it was..They pulled me out and put me on this row of people like me. TO GO PEOPLE!! Man! Was I Glad to get out of there!

Two places recently:

La Gloria - went after dark so it was cool enough to eat outside. Food was very good but don't go there hungry. Portions are small and unlike "tex mex" sides do not come with the meal. Just expect it to be different. Personally I really enjoyed it and will go back. Hubby liked it but knows he will have to order more in order to fill up.

Panera Bread - so nice to finally get a decent clam chowder bread bowl!! Sandwhiches are awesome too. We went three times last week to the new one. On the third time the manager loaded us up with some freebies from the bakery.

Mama: I agree. Personally, I don't know how La Gloria gets all the attention it does, as the concept is totally off-base (it's NOT street food at all), expensive for what it is and very small portions overall. I also don't like that every time I've been, they have a serious fly problem. Not fun.

That being said, it's good to have something new in the Pearl area and I look forward to seeing more expansion.

This was our first time out to the Pearl area. I was thrilled when I saw a place to get oysters, The SandBar....until I saw the prices on the menu. Now, not so thrilled.

Seafood is expensive and SandBar is the best seafood restaurant in town.

If you want plain gulf oysters head to Luke or Pappadoughs (sp) for happy hour.

Dough was jammed long before Guy.

El Ceviche de Waldito- a great little hole in the wall serving Peruvian and caribean food (not at all like the tex-mex that is everywhere in SA). They have a reasonably priced lunch buffet that will give you a sample of the cuisine.
They're in a strip center on Evers between Wurzbach and 410 (next to Thai Taste)

tried dough with trepidation based on some of the complaints. Was told it would be a 45-minute wait, but was seated within 15 minutes. Staff was very friendly and attentive. Cheese apps were to die for. Enjoyed the place very much and will return. Only complaint -- the prices. But, the food is fresh and that will cost $$.
