I haven't tried it yet but the local competition is fierce. If it's not top notch, it won't survive.

my favorite is the pizza from stone fire grill.
Their Huntington Beach location is better when it comes to pizza.  The Irvine location often has too big of an outside crust.  I've complained about it a few times and they've responded that they are looking to improve, but it seems they just don't care enough.

I do like their pizza, though, other than the fact that the end crust is too big.  It means you get less pizza than you pay for, and it's too much bread.

The Yard House has really good pizza.

Right now, my goto is Pieology.  I've not tried Blaze yet, but plan to.

I think Pizza 900 across from Irvine BMW is better than both.  Try the pizza called "The First" and add bacon.  Yum.

Man... Stone Fire Grill and Yard House pizzas are being touted here?

I must be a pizza snob... which is ironic.

Maybe.  To each their own.

Stone Fire Grill in Irvine has potential but it's slightly flawed.  End crust too big, big bubbles in dough, rest of pizza too thin and soggy....  It's still good, but needs improvement.  Their Huntington Beach location did it much better when I lived closer to it.

What about Shakey's?  $5 all you can eat pizza and mojo potatoes!

As IHO said, it really depends on what you like for pizza.  I love NY style, not thin, not thick, slightly charred, greasy, salty pizza.  My wife like a much more doughy crust.

IMO, Blase makes a fairly decent BYO pizza.  Pieology is a pizza Subway. 

Over in Orange, I've happily found Zito's Pizza.  One of the best Calzones I've found out here.

IMHO pieology > blaze. The crust is too thin at Blaze. Feels like I'm eating a cheese cracker.

Shakeys is actually pretty good to me, but I don't think their Bunch-A-Lunch has been $5 in a few years.

And I thought Pieology's crust was thinner than Blaze... Mod being the thinnest.

Shakeys seems a bit far to go for what it is.  Also I wasn't impressed at all the last time I had it, but that was over a decade ago.

Restaurant closures: 6 Round Table Pizzas in Orange County

Restaurants in Irvine, Costa Mesa, Foothill Ranch, Rancho Santa Margarita, Newport Beach and Lake Forest shut down because the franchisee ran into financial troubles, an official said.
