I Love everyone of Sam Fox 's restaurants. One of his big ravers! I went to Doughbird for the first time. Like the ambiance, service very good. We had the chicken, pastrami sandwich and a salad, the Brussel sprouts and cauliflower. The Brussel sprouts were delicious. The chicken was good. The pastrami sandwich would not be ordered again. The salad was good. The cauliflower was mediocre.

What a great spot! I am not a vegetarian, but this place makes you love vegetables! If you go, you MUST try the Grilled Cauliflower Entree! Sooooo good! As are the Brussel Sprouts and Broccolini! Great place to share and taste different things and prices are reasonable! Plus, my gluten loving husband can get a great pizza while I have healthier options! Can't wait to go back!

Love Doughbird for pizza that's really tasty. The problem is I love the Aviator pizza so much I can't bring myself to try any of their other pizzas. The Buffalo Chicken sandwich is also might goo.

We loved the Margherita pizza. Thin crust, great sauce, cheesy. Yummy! We also ordered the green salad with roasted almonds, almonds, etc and a side of Mac & Cheese. We shared all and left happy. Great find. Great atmosphere. Friendly waitstaff.

Great place! Loved our server and the pizza and salad were very delicious. It is quite loud, however. If you want a quiet intimate place, this is not it. We were seated very close to the neighboring table that had a little one who was not happy.

Their chicken is so fabulous, I need my fix at times. My husband and I stopped in
Easter Sunday and shared a whole chicken etc. My husband HATES chicken! However,
he fell in love with YOUR chicken. We will be back!

This is our third time at Dough Bird. We have a monthly meeting in Tempe on Fridays, and this restaurant is on our way home......great place to grab a casual bite with lots of flavor!! Highly recommend the Pastrami Pizza! The staff is always friendly and the service is fast. Kudos to the owner and management staff.

Our service was unacceptable. It took over 20 minutes to get my Pepsi because our waitress explained she had to prepare it herself. Our humus ‘appetizer’ took so long to arrive they actually brought it out with our salads. We decided not to order dessert recognizing that could take another 30 minutes to arrive. Then getting our bill cashed out - ugh! Our ‘simple’ dinner took 2 1/2 hours! I should mention they also decided to do new employee training on their alcohol right next to our table which was loud and disrespectful of their diners around them. We won’t be back as there are too many other fabulous restaurants in Phoenix.

Love this place! I've had their pastrami pizza a couple of times and my wife always gets their rotisserie chicken with a couple of sides. Yjou can't go wrong with either. Try the milk stout in an ice cold mug with your pizza - you won't regret it.

Came in for the rotisserie chicken. While it was good, didn’t understand why I’ve heard so many rave reviews about it. Kind of pricy, for, a chicken.

Dough Bird has become one of our favorite Phoenix restaurants! Each time we've dined here, the staff has been incredibly friendly and accommodating. Since it is a popular place, we haven't always been seated right away, but it is well worth the wait. We love the gluten free pizza and they have my favorite dessert, the Elvis. We have yet to have a bad meal or experience here. We tell people about Dough Bird and eat there every chance we get!

Very little wait time to be seated after notifying the hostess. Service was so-so at the table though and the fact that I noted that we were celebrating a birthday was never mentioned or acknowledged. I don’t expect a free desert, this isn’t a Cheesecake Factory I know, but a simple “Happy Birthday” makes all the difference. Food was outstanding, ambiance was excellent, everything you would expect from a Fox concept. Awesome menu from beginning to end. Just small service adjustments will help ensure you get a second visit.

I like to go here on my visits to Phoenix. Quality meals for reasonable prices. Other restaurants have annoying valet services or limited space, which makes this even more attractive. Caution: it is popular so make a reservation for peak periods.

I was so happy to get a delicious gluten free pizza - they make the crust there! It was even good the next day as leftovers (that is definitely NOT a given with GF). My husband’s regular pizza was also good. It was a bit noisy in there, but it is a casual place - we didn’t expect candlelight!
