In this last edition of the food fetish review for 2016, the food fetish team headed over to The Slice located on Dinah Shore near Costco. The Slice has a very likable, comfortable atmosphere, with extremely fast and friendly service. The Slice also offers diners the best auditory experience, featuring music from legendary artists such as the Rolling Stones and Queen. One standout option The Slice offers is lunch specials from Monday to Friday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., which the food fetish team gladly took advantage of.

Price List:

Calzone with ricotta cheese and pepperoni with drink $13.94

Lunch Special $8.59

  • Salad

Pros:

  • Salad size in preparation to the meal

  • Pizza slices are New York style slices
  • Pizza was very tasty and a had a subdued sausage taste
  • Calzone was enormous and could easily feed two people

  • Food was beyond filling

The Cons:

  • Hardwood seats were uncomfortable
  • Delicious as the bread and butter may have been, the powder from the bread becomes a hassle to clean off your fingers
  • Ricotta cheese presence was overwhelming in the calzone

We recommend this establishment to any  group of hungry students. Even though it is mid-range in price, the quality and quantity make it worthwhile. The Slice is located in the Monterey Marketplace Shopping Center at 72775 Dinah Shore Dr, Rancho Mirage, CA 92270, right next to Regal Cinema 16, so you can catch a movie after a great meal. The Slice is also a great sit down restaurant where you can enjoy a high quality meal with your friends and family.
