Respond to Review of Magic Oven - Dupont
Review: Considering I've been going to Magic for a long time now, I'm surprised that I haven't reviewed it here before now. So, Here it goes. Over time a joint can change. So I don't want to agree or disagree with what what the handful of other visitors to Magic have conveyed here. However, I can make one possibly useful observation. While I find the slices - I can't afford a whole Magic pizza! - to be rather meager, I have noticed recently that the Magic folks, at least at the original store, have been back on their game for quality. And really, the portions are fine, especially when the slice is good. And when a Magic slice is good, it's GOOD. The original store is probably too small for them to get carried away with a large selection. But I always find something I like. I did pick up a half pizza at one of their new outlets recently, next to where I work in Corktown. It was very expensive and, in my view, not worth the price I paid. It was fine, but just too pricey at $10 for a half of a small pizza. That's a tiny amount of pizza folks! As for the service where I usually go, If it slips now and then (not often in my experience), it comes back, which is more than can be said for so many eateries. But, all said and done, Magic is a nice break from the chains. If you're stopping into a chain - doesn't matter which of them - for a slice, you will 'never' get anything as nice as a Magic slice. Slices in joints like Pizza Pizza are usually not fit for dogs. Through experimentation I have found a Pizza Pizza pizza I like, which is probably how it is for most chains. But the Pizza Pizza next to the Magic I frequent sells it's slices for only slightly less than Magic, but the quality is significantly less. So there you go.
