A Pizza Original!

A Sioux City icon. A true pizza parlor inside and out. Two types of pizza sauce. Pasta too. Video games. On weekends there used to be the Pepperoni's comedy club, which was a great side room to eat pizza, drink beer and laugh your butt off. Sadly, I don't believe they still do this.

I started coming here many more years ago than I like to think about. I used to bring my daughter here when the 2 of us lived in Sioux City. I still remember those days and that Pizza. It was absolutely the best Pizza I'd had anywhere. I still visit here on occasion and they still have great Pizza. Not... More

El Fredo Pizza is the best Pizza in the area. The homemade sauce is excellent and they cook their pepperoni semi crisp giving it a great taste.

I've talked about Buffalo Alice & it's very good pizza .... BUT, "Freds" is the best!!! Yes, it's what I grew up on, but I've never changed my mine. We've eaten pizza many x"s & many places -- but we always decide that how good it may be -- to my wife & I, it's EL FREDO'S

I ate here yesterday at the recommendation of the hotel I was staying at. I ordered cheesebread, shrimp alfredo and small sausage and pepperoni pizza with their homemade sauce. The cheese bread was clearly out of a bag. The alfredo was very thick, it really didn't have much taste to it. The shrimp in the alfredo appeared to be almost... More

I don't know how this isn't the highest-ranked pizza in the area. Maybe because it dares to be different? The sweet sauce is like nothing I've had anywhere else and makes El Fredo's one of the best and most recognizable pizzas in the country.

El Fredo- The ONLY pizza place in town. Get the original sauce-the BEST!! Over the years, El Fredo has had consistently wonderful pizza. If you have pizza anywhere else, you will ALWAYS compare it El Fredo. My fave combination is canandian bacon, pineapple, mushroom, and onion. They also have great pasta dishes. If you want to eat in, the atmosphere... More
