If you like checking out "local" style pizza when you visit new cities, Tobin's is a winner in Bloomington-Normal. It is just your typical thin crust loaded with toppings and grease, but the quality of ingredients is good and generations of B-Ners can't be wrong, can they? Fried chicken and... read more

We usually go for Birthdays, which was the occasion last Saturday. We love their birthday coupon, the service, and the great pizza. We oftentimes run into people we know there - popular place in town.

Great taste, family favorite! Restaurant is nothing special in looks but people are really nice! We usually do pick up. A favorite spot to eat in for college students.

Tobins pizza is great--very unique in this college town full of chains. Their ingredients are so fresh. They also have awesome specials thru the week--my fav is the Chicken and spaghetti dinner with the most awesome garlic bread. My husband loves the spaghetti and meatballs dinner --they have the largest meatballs ive ever seen at a restaurant

We live in Decatur (about 1 hour south of Bloomington) and every 2 or 3 weeks we make the trip north to Tobins for their delicious pizza. We have been making this trip since the late 1970's. Since there is just the two us now, we buy their "Buck stretcher" (large pizza and for $1 you get a 10" also).... More

I struggle to find a Gluten Free pizza that has decent taste. Tobins Gluten Free is by far the best I have ever had! My family ate the regular pizza and loved it as well!

I chose this place because of the reviews show that it is the best pizza place in town. I didn't eat inside since I'm here visiting solo, so I got my pizza and took it back to my hotel room. They were very busy, but got me out of there quickly. They didn't disappoint! This pizza is delicious!! Even the... More

A Mom and Pop type establishment providing the best pizza in Bloomington-Normal. Small facility, lines outside the door are not uncommon, but the wait is worth it. Chicken and other favorites available, but you must try the pizza. It's all very good and the bacon cheese pizza is excellent! Tobins is a must in Bloomington-Normal. Has been our favorite for...
