“Cheap, good eats in Saratoga!”
Reviewed 14 July 2013

My son and I were trying to decide what to eat when we were hanging around Saratoga recently, and we remembered...The Doughboy!! We've been eating doughboys since Esperanto first appeared about 10 years ago (little known fact--I worked there before it was Esperantos, while it was an all night hot dog stand and I was putting myself through college!)
But this time we had lots of good options--veggie doughboys, samosas, black bean veggie chimichangas with chipotle, chicken and broccoli wraps--all of them inexpensive $3.75), really well-seasoned, and easy to walk with or take to the nearby park.
The atmosphere is nothing to write home about, but the surprisingly interesting and inexpensive food is, especially in a town where the prices are out of control during the summer months. Esperanto will hold its prices and its tasty, yet low-key, reputation.

“yummmm”
Reviewed 8 July 2013

This place is on Caroline, it's a little hidden. Doesn't look like much, it's just a little pizza style joint. Decent prices - great for late night munchies. And.... Dough Boys=cheesy, chicken, creamy dough wrapped goodness. Enough said.

“okay for a late night bite”
Reviewed 7 July 2013

My fiance raves about the doughboys, but I think they are just alright. Some of the specialty items are unique. Very little sitting room. Employees were friendly.

“Great burritos and love the doughboys.”
Reviewed 18 March 2013

Doughboys and burritos a good snack. Family enjoys it. One of the few places that still use good ingredients. Can really taste the different flavors in the food. Fresh chopped veggies in the different salsas are great. Pizza is unique, not the average NY style flavor.
