This downtown pizza shop has the best pizza in town. And the salads are always fresh and very creative. Good beer selection. Help is always friendly. And the outdoor eating area is great. Shaded by trees and an adjoining structure in the afternoon. Try the jalapeno and pepperoni pizza. Great combo.

As the name implies, this restaurant serves up very good pizza with an impressive list of optional toppings. There is ample seating for students (and visiting families and tourists), and the servers are Kansas friendly. In addition to being delicious, the pizza is served up in slices which cover your plate. Recommend you start with one and order a second... More

Very good pizza and great salad. I couldn't believe how many choices they had for salads--about 7 different salads to choose from. We ordered a large pizza and two salads and couldn't finish all the pizza. Lots of good choices of pizza to choose from or make up your own pizza. Would definitely go back again before a football game.

Thin crust doesn't mean crunchy crust. I liked the sauce and cheese. The meatball was a bit dry, but the pie had a good amount on it. My visit might not be representative, they could have simply forgot about mine in the oven. I won't give them another chance till after I try the pizza place across the street.

Just moved to town and was looking for some good local pizza. This place hit the spot. Downtown but has their own parking lot. Order at the counter and they bring it to you. Good amount of toppings. Good bread/cheese/sauce/topping ratio. Great pizza and service!

We live within a few blocks of AJ's and often walk down for a slice. I love the cheese blocks: little bits of provolone baked inside of dough and served with marinara. So yummy! They have a great patio, too.

Loved the pizza here - some of the best I've had. Salad was good, but huge pieces of lettuce that needed to be cut up into smaller pieces, which was difficult with a fork. I probably wouldn't order the salad again just because I don't know that it was worth the cost. But the pizza more than made up for... More

Great pizza. Love thin crust. Lots of variety. Toasted ravioli was great appetizer. Not fast food but prompt courteous service. Clean. Friendly staff.

It's really rare anymore to find a place where you can get a good, individually prepared slice, especially in the midwest. AJ's will do you just about whatever you want, and every single time, it's good. They have daily specials, too: $5.50 for the slice of the day plus a fountain drink, and that's a great way to explore the... More
