We really enjoyed our first visit to the Pizza Joint and definitely return in the future. You can't be the specials and happy hour from 2 to 6 pm.

This place used to be good but lately the quality has really gone down hill. My pizza slices were just marginal and nothing to get excited about. The bartender had friends (possible workers) sitting at the bar and they spent more time talking to them as my beer sat empty for a number of minutes. This place used to be... More

This place has it all. Great marinara and great crust, what more could you ask for at a Pizzaria. Good service and generous portions. Everything we ordered ranged from above average to excellent. The pizza and Stromboli were excellent. This is the place to go for casual dinning. Check it out if you are in Aiken.

Pizza has been one of my favorite foods since childhood. Pizza Joint has never disappointed my taste buds! I love the atmosphere of the place, and not only is their pizza good, it is fairly priced as well. They have daily specials that are definitely worth taking advantage of, especially if you like beer.

Now it's just average. They changed how they prepare the pizza slices. Now they just prepare a basic cheese pizza. When you order a slice with different toppings or even a "premium" slice, they just add the toppings and re-heat it. Ingredients aren't as good either. Pepperoni is small and curled. Italian sausage is small flakes that are too spicy.... More

I was impressed by the pleasant ambience, good service and the freshness of the pizza. Even though I only had a slice, you could tell it wasn't part of a pizza that had been sitting under lamps for hours. Very good crust, sauce and toppings.

This was outstanding pizza. The crust was light and crisp, and the toppings were first-rate. I didn't expect to find such good pizza in Aiken. Very pleased. Our server was friendly, helpful and solicitous.
