I can't speak for the subs but the pizza here is ex+, as it has been for years. Not cheap by New England standards but worth it in the end. Buyer should inquire ahead as to what toppings are fresh/canned (we are talking Maine) but the crust is thin and the sauce is tasty and the toppings are plentiful.

I grew up where mediocre pizza shops didn't last long. There are 4 pizza places in Portland area that ring the bell. Two of them are named Pizza Joint. They know what doing and they've been doing it awhile.

I eat here at least weekly if not more frequently. Their pizza is some of the best in Portland. I get bacon, tomato and feta on my pizza and I will say it's not cheap but it's extremely yummy. My husband loves their pepperoni pizza - I've found it's the only pepperoni I can eat. Their sandwiches are excellent as... More

What more can you ask for from a pizza shop? Fresh Ingredients - check. Fresh Daily Bread - check. Friendly Service - check. If you're a bacon lover, their bacon pizza is to die-for (literally); they top the cheese with STRIPS of bacon (unlike other restaurants who chop the bacon into bits). Since they specialize in take-out and delivery, they... More

Pizza Joint is quite expensive, but the ingredients are top quality. There pizza was very good. I got a pepperoni pizza and the pepperoni's tasted so good. It is worth the price.

Their pizza is delicious. Thinner hand thrown crust with amazing ingredients. Try the sausage or the spicy pepperoni.
