First time here but won't be the last! Ordered for take out. One slice of cheese pizza that was so big it could feed 2. Very good tangy sauce with fresh herbs in the sauce. Crust was great with just the right amount of chewiness. Also ordered a Greek salad. Salad could feed at least 2. Very fresh romaine with... More

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

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

Description
Dagwoods is your local Santa Monica pizza shop with a simple mission: provide you with the best food, at a great price, with exceptional customer service, while making a positive difference in our community.

We are often credited with having the best pizza in Los Angeles as we are committed to using nothing but the freshest and highest quality ingredients. Our extensive menu includes pizza, pasta, salads, subs, and wings – not to mention plenty of gluten-free and vegan options.

Our clean, family-friendly restaurant provides a great atmosphere for everybody young and seasoned. We even have a heated, pet-friendly outdoor patio. Our 50” TVs are perfect for watching all of your favorite sports games (if we don’t have the game on, don’t hesitate to ask!). We offer free WiFi and have a spacious, private parking lot.

LA Weekly calls our daily Happy Hour one of the best in Santa Monica: $3.25 pints of beer and $5 glasses of wine! Our alcohol selection includes many tasty and refreshing local craft brews, your favorite domestic and import staples, and our favorite red and white wines, as well.

We at Dagwoods place a strong emphasis on giving back to our community. In order to preserve freshness for our beloved customers, all of our “slice pies” never sit for longer than one hour. At least every hour, a new slice pizza is made and all of the leftover slices are donated to OPCC’s SAMOSHEL Homeless Shelter.

Dagwoods is here to serve you. Join us in our large dining room or call ahead and take our food home. For those nights where you just feel like staying in, call us and have one of our world-class drivers deliver the food right to your door. We also offer catering options that are perfect for corporate events, birthday parties, and pretty much any other occasion.

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.
