Had the lunch special that included a drink and a salad. Had a special calzone. The salad and dressing was brought to my table by a very friendly staff member. The calzone showed up a few minutes later, hot out of the over, with the top missing. It wasn't missing, it was made that way! All the filling was baked... More

Pizza was just okay... Nothing special. We could've been in any town USA vs a famed local spot. Kinda dirty on the floors and older restaurant setting, but decent enough. Was busy for a Friday night... Felt like people just wanting quantity over quality.

My family has been coming here for over 20 years. Everyone I know that is a local knows about this spot. The pizza is absolutely excellent. The owner is super nice and everyone is very friendly. I brought a group of about 40 cadets here after a camp we had at Pendleton and and the staff couldn't have been nicer... More

I was in charge of getting us Pizza after a day at Legoland. Got on Trip Advisor and found Upper Crust Pizza. We were staying near the Harbor and I was dumb enough not to know how far inland Oceanside goes. Hey I'm a stupid tourist. Anyway it took a long time to navigate CA traffic but we finally got...

Upper Crust's pizzas seem super healthy--not too greasy, or too cheesy, unless you want it to be. Fresh veggies, top quality ingredients. Also good salads and pasta and sandwiches. Can get crowded, but have a beer or root beer and enjoy the friendly atmosphere. Daily specials (i.e. spaghetti on Mondays, Lasagna on Tuesdays) are delicious and great bargains. Have never... More

Friends from Boston picked this place because they thought it was related to the Upper Crust Pizza in Mass.. but it is not. Walking in, you are reminded of the "old school" pizza shops.. the wonderful smell of baking pies hits you as you walk through the door.. It's a place you'd expect to see local kids' sports teams coming... More

Great care is taken to make the customer feel comfortable. The choice of pizzas is very interesting. The have the basics but they have added gourmet touches. My family has eaten there several times and never disappointed.

We went to multiple places for pizza in Oceanside and this is our favorite! They have a typical pizza menu with pizza, pasta, and salads. My favorite is the garlic cheese pizza bread appetizer and they have tons of great pizzas too. They also have really good priced lunch specials. We always try to go here when we are in... More

Love their pizza. The resturant is your typical pizza parlor (and I don't mean that in negative way) But there pizza is so much better than many pizza's. And their Pasta dishes are wonderful. They have great salads too. You won't be disappointed.

Visiting Oceanside, we found Upper Crust while driving around looking for some place for dinner. There are many restaurants in this area but none looked very appealing. Upper Crust looked like a friendly family pizza place, so we took a chance. The restaurant smells great and is very clean and staff was really nice. Lots of families and couples enjoying... More
