When the hunger pains kick in, you know takeout pizza is the name of the game. Mega's Pizzeria popped up under Yelp food delivery from nearby restaurants, so the lady and I knew that our Friday night plans had been set. After scanning the ridiculously "mega" menu and not agreeing on one specific pizza, we decided to go all out and sample a little bit everything. In my opinion, the food items were a mixed bag. But I do commend the speedy delivery process and the portion to price ratio. By looking at our photos, you can see we had a primarily carb heavy meal. It's worth noting the dinner items (lasagna, chicken marsala, etc.) include a side salad with dressing and a loaf of bread. I appreciate the loaf of bread don't get me wrong, but it just wasn't doing it for either of us. Overall, I'd recommend the Pesto Cheese Bread with the sweet tomato marinara. The dinners were just A-OK to this Italian boy, but I preferred the Lasagna than the Chicken Marsala, as it was a little chewy. We split a slice, which was only $2, and we both thought it was one of the finer items we ate. It's hard to complain with leftovers for days, although I'm not sure if I'd dine at the restaurant based off this takeout order. As far as delivery is concerned, I'd much rather support a place like this than a chain. Up to you whether you want to give Mega's Pizzeria a shot!
Hungry again at lunch so I opened the Slice app to see what I could get delivered quick. Don't judge me, I had a lot of work to do at my job. In browsing, I came across this place. Pizza was definitely out of the question so I checked through their non-pizza, non-bread items. The first thing I saw was the Housemade Meatballs. It was listed under the appetizer section so I figured that would be a good snack to start. Scrolling down some more I saw the salad section and while I didn't want to have a salad I figured it would balance the meatballs out and I'd get my daily serving of veggies. So that it wouldn't be blah, I chose the Antipasto Salad. Delivery was just $1 and they were only a few miles away. The app said it would take about 30-45 minutes to arrive but the delivery guy was here in less time. He was very friendly and polite which I don't find in many deliverers. The food? The meatballs were very good. You get about 5 good size ones swimming in a sea of marinara sauce and melted mozzerella. But the salad? I was not expecting what I got. A white standard-size folding box filled to the top, covered with mozzarella cheese and pepperoni. It also included copious amounts of mushrooms and olives, something I always get when I ate pizza. Nothing was skimped on. I ate maybe a 1/3 of it and took the rest home for dinner. I've definitely found my little pizzeria.
If you prefer pizza from a fast food pizza chain, we can't be friends. Seriously, don't even bother. There is no reason to get crap delivery pizza when there are places like Mega's. (Previously known as Millennium Pizza, that's how long I've been ordering from them.) My favorite item on the menu is the calzone. They're HUGE, order an extra side of sauce and plan to save half for lunch tomorrow. They're that big. And they're so good. I'm a traditional pepperoni fan but you can get as creative as you want with the toppings... um, fillings? The second best thing about Mega's is their salads. Feel a little bit better about your carb-o load with some green stuff. Betcha Papa can't deliver the greens! (Try their house dressing and thank me later.) I usually get an extra salad to go with my leftover calzone. Not in the mood for pizza? Mega's also has really good traditional Italian meals. I'm a fan of the parmigianas, both chicken and eggplant. The spaghetti is good too. I can't do the lasagna but that's because no one makes it like my mama does. But the star of the show is the mozzarella sticks. What? Did you think it was the pizza? The pizza is good, but it's no mozzarella stick. The puppies are like molten lava in your mouth but so good. Would you normally eat six string cheese in a row? Naw, but if you fry it and serve it up with some marinara it's a whole new delicacy. Ok, ok, let's talk about the pizza. The crust is chewy, the sauce is tangy, the cheese is stringy, and the toppings are as creative as your imagination. Is the pizza super special? There is better pizza in town... but probably not better delivery pizza. Lastly, the staff is always super courteous. They're old school and make you call in your order but they promptly answer and I've never received an incorrect order. Plus, they're quick with delivery. No more waiting 45-60 minutes for your pizza to show up. Four stars because I can't quite rank them up their with places like V's or Mellow. But they beat the pants off other pizza delivery options.
Mega's Pizza is a good pizza option if you’re craving a slice in Jacksonville. Based on the more or less solid reviews, it's definitely worth trying. It won’t blow you off your feet with an amazing experience, but it is still tasty pizza and sometimes the taste is more important than the experience especially when you’re in a rush.
