Best Pizza in Sioux City

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

In town visiting relatives and they picked up El Fredo's so we wouldn't have to cook. It was good! The sauce had a nice zing to it, slices were large and full of toppings. The crust was a bit greasy, but there are no calories on vacation--right?! This is one of the 'go-to' pizza places according to locals, we enjoyed... More

Called for 45 minutes to order ahead. Finally went in to order and said,"did you know your phone is off the hook?" The employee said,"oh yeah we know." So I ordered and waited and hour for my pizza. Not acceptable customer service.
