Okay I never would think a chain restaurant like this would score so high on my list! The location is great for me since it's right in DTLA and I totally love how they have a full bar here!

They seem to hit the dtla market very well as they have great specials like their $5 pizza of the day!  It really is a great deal since this place charges by the topping.  I was at another location and somehow came out with a $20 personal pizza.... 

Great food and plenty of casual seating! 


Great pizza and now GREAT rotisserie chicken!  Fast and delicious, 800 Degrees is a great option for a meal whether you're a tourist or a local.  Make your own pizza, or go with their tried and true pies.  Crust is airy and delicious; toppings are fresh, varied, and tasty.  The true hallmark of great pizza--is it just as good cold as leftovers?  IT IS!  Back to the new chicken--roasted in house to perfection, it comes with six dipping sauces, all of which are standout.

As a pizza connoisseur, I have tried many pizza places and I have to say 800 degrees ranks towards the top.  It's a "chipotle" style setup where you get to choose your toppings as you go down the line, which is a nice touch.  I have no problem eating a personal size all to myself.


I'd much rather go for a giant New York slice, but when this is the only pizza option around, it's not so bad. The personal size is tough—it's too much for just one person, but not quite enough to box up for later. I usually overeat here! Luckily I can pretend it's okay because I get to pick what veggies I pile on top.


800 degrees has gluten free pizza that actually tastes good! You can pick from any toppings that you want and they make it super fast. It's super packed around noon, so make sure to give yourself enough time if you are planning on heading over there around that time.


Now that 800 Degrees is far from the only "build your own pizza" place, it's hard to say what—if anything—makes this place stand out. No matter how many combinations I try, my pizzas are merely good, not great—partially due to a crust that's never quite as crisp as it should be. At the very least, 800 Degrees does know how to put together a handsome dining area.

It's hard to find gluten free pizza, but this place has it and it's quite delicious. I love that you get to pick what's on your pizza and that you can watch them make it. The ingredients seem fresh and the outcome is yummy.
