img_0498img_04991Well, this pizza place in South Beach goes into the file of the places I wished I had never stopped to try.  Deco Pizza in South Beach on Washington must be a chain since I passed by two of them not too far apart from each other.  Both were pretty empty, so I guess they cater to a late night crowd, which is probably too wasted to actually taste what they are eating.  My son and I split a slice here and both thought the same thing about this pizza.  Way too much garlic!

Deco Pizza in Miami Beach is a small little shop with a few pizza choices behind their glass counter top.  I ordered one slice and when the guy said it was $3.25 in an accent, I was pretty sure I misheard him.  $3.25 for a slice in this place!  Unfortunately, I heard right.  For that price, I expected this pizza to taste much better then it actually did.  Once you get past the excessive smell of the garlic, you can try to taste the rest of the pizza.  Not sure what they are covering up by using this much garlic in their blend, but something else must be terribly wrong to use this amount.

The cheese was decent, and the crust was crisp.  The thing I liked most about this slice was the amount of sauce they had on it.  It was relatively a perfect amount compared to the cheese.  If only they used a sweeter sauce and less garlic, I think they could improve this pizza dramatically!  In my opinion this pizza is better then Groovy’s but far worse tasting then Gino’s down the block.  Skip this place and head to Gino’s instead.

I will give Deco Pizza in South Beach 3 out of 8 slices.

    I've had a few slices of Deco's pizza when I was there last year. I like it because the consistency and taste is comparable with some pizza I've tried up in The Bronx, NY. I don't know about this garlic taste you were talking about, but when I had my 2 slices, the garlic-type taste wasn't so overwhelming. I do agree, however, that if the sauce was a touch sweeter it would be an awesome slice! I admit I've had better and would say it's more like 41/2 out of 8 slices using your scale to measure a slice.

    Why would you intentionally name yourself Dominos Pizza, knowing the negative stigma that comes with that name!

    This is great pizza and $3.25 is a decent price at an establishment like this.

    You fail to mention that the slice is HUGE. Yes, $3.25 sounds high, but the slices are big, and everything on South Beach is expensive anyway. My wife and I were able to eat for under $20 and be full. I found that to be an accomplishment on South Beach.

    I stopped by and ate at this location on Washington Ave. one night,
    about two months ago. Ordered 2 slices, Ham + Pineapple, and one Cheese.
    I ate the HP first, and the taste was so nasty. It seemed to maybe be a day 1/2 old, give or take. It was so bad. When you have old pizza, the crust may become dry and cracked when you bend it. This one was not cracking, instead it would just turn a whiter color on the place where the crack would have been.
    This means it was stale as hell, no flavor. The cheese was old and hard.
    The H+P was just Garbage. I took a few bites, and brought it back to the cashier. How can you f*$k up pizza so bad? I mad him give me two brand new, fresh cheese slices, because I couldn't get my money back.
    I could tell the dude was pissed, and he didn't want to trade the food.
    Anyways, don't go there.
    But I continually try food all over from different places, I am a cook too by the way.
