DP DOUGH? D'oh!

A giant won ton?
A steaming slice of yellow seedless watermelon?
Nope. It's a calzone.
DP Dough, originally from Amherst, MA, has recently risen at 244 West Gilman Street in the space by the new Samba/Cabana Room.
Already at more than 20 other colleges, it's yet another in the big bucket of campus franchise vultures swooping down in every ivy draped city.
First coffee, then pizza, then burritos, then Chicago dogs, NOW it's all about CALZONES.
A ridiculously huge menu (simply listings of every combo of ingredients possible)-- everything is a ZONE.
Get it? Cal-ZONE.
For instance:
PARKING ZONE®
Broccoli, Breaded Chicken & Mozzarella
FALLING ROCK ZONE®
Potato, Bacon and Cheddar
LOADING ZONE®
Breaded Chicken, Peppers, Onion & Mozzarella
OH! ZONE®
Steak and Cheese
DANGER ZONE®
Hamburg, Cheddar Cheese, Mexican Seasoning, Onions & Hot Sauce
CONSTRUCTION ZONE®
Build Your Own Zone®!
(limit 4 items
etcetera

I haven't actually put one in my mouth yet, but they appear to be the size of a Pillsbury crescent roll.
For $6.50.
2 slices of Ian's pizza at 6 buck is almost double the food.

So there are two new calzone restaurants in downtown?

Yep. Calzones seem to be the new college franchise overkill--- I put my finger on that button September 24.....(sorry to scoop such an excellent site as Dane101.)

Calzones are new? We were eating them in college 20+ years ago. Hell, they used to sell 'em off the roach coach at midnight in front of the dorms.

Wow.
20 years ago in Washjington state, calzones seemed like Italian gyros---ethnically exotic and mysterious....and they were listed in smaller fonts at the bottom of the menu, along with strombolis, a enigmatic digression from the main menu.
And there were certainly never entire specialty calzone shops, let alone 2 within a few blocks of each other.
But on the other hand, I guess the demise of either Qdoba or Chipotle is late.

This place is kind of creepy looking to me. Tiny yet huge, steel and industrial looking. It would be a good place to bring a body to get it processed for dumping in mendota.

Hey I would try one before you pass judgement. I had one of DP Dough's calzones last week - in fact the badger zone and it was big enough to feed 2 hungry guys. Don't knock it until you've tried it!

Do you really expect anyone on this board to take your first post seriously?

As someone who is from the East Coast I find it hysterical that so many people have never heard of a calzone.

DP Dough was alright (if a little pricey). I'll have to try LuvShack.

Can the stromboli wave be far behind?
