OK?! An Oggiís in AZ? To date Iíve only been to the one in Santee, on several occasion, so I donít have a deep Oggiís base of knowledge to make a comparison. Well this one is more square and open with no nonsense tables, seating and decorations. This place has a full on warn in feel with sort of rickety squeaky chairs and all. They have some 20 TVís up on all of the walls tuned to various sports and I see about 16 to 18 items on tap. It is interesting, the Oggiís Iíve been to is crammed with Padre and Charger stuff on every available surface, and itís everywhere. By comparison this Oggiís has sparse Jerseyís and Team banners and such. I see local teams as well as the 49ers (could that be right?). The beer offerings are pretty nice with core brews a few guest taps like Racer 5 (yummy) and then an Oggiís IIPA I donít recognize as well as the always incredible, when fresh, Hop Juice. If you can confirm Hop Juice is on tap and that it is fresh and you need a hop fix this is the place to head.

Great local place. Servers are excellent. Food is good as well as the pricing. They have select beers for only a dollar on Wednesdays(with purchase of food) and happy hour all day everyday. They have EXCELLENT beers and 19 total on tap.

Pizza and beer, what more could you want? Some decent tap selections and the service is nice.

I was a former a "regular" at Oggiís due to convenience and overall satisfaction with the place.
Oggiís was a nice, clean sports brewpub just off the 101 at 67th Ave. Traditional sports bar atmosphere with multiple TVís and sports memorabilia plastered across the walls. Fairly relaxed atmosphere when visited at times other than during major sporting events.
Quality of beers is above average, some quite good - especially the retired hefe-weizen and scottish ale. Pale Ale is more of an IPA to me. Seasonals are hit or miss, and do NOT qualify for the happy hour discount (I learned the hard way, even though the advertising sign at the door for happy hour doesnít say this).
(Edit: service has deteriorated significantly in 2006)
Sevice is sometimes great, but usually just good. Daytime bartender seems to have an attitude and doesnít know anything about beer. Waitresses are cute and equally ignorant ("would you like to try our hefey-whyyy-zen?") but they check back with you often, keep your beer glass full, and are very consistent.
(Edit: food went downhill in 2007. Many menu items not at all similar to former presentation and taste: example: artichoke dip)
(Edit: 2008-09 got rid of their best beer, the Bavarian style Hefe-Weizen, and replaced it with an American wheat that is undrinkable. Also new menu design and higher prices on happy hour appetizers. They were something like half off the original price and now thereís just a happy hour menu with some discounts)
Food can be quite good. Kudos for the famous Oggi-stix, artichoke cheese dip, fried zucchini sticks, friend cheese ravioli, and pesto-pizza. Very fresh, soft n pillowy crusts with high quality cheese.
For this part of town (Arrowhead) the prices are reasonable, especially at happy hour, but some of the gourmet pizzas are a little pricey. Lunch specials are quite affordable too, for around $7 you get a salad plus another food item.
Avoid this place unless thereís nothing else in the area you care to visit.

Went for lunch during the week just as they opened. Not loud, no blaring TVs. Food was just okay. Meat pizza was nothing special, sandwich just okay. Beer sampler included 8 beers, was told that was all that was on tap. A couple of good beers but overall, just okay.
