If you are able to get to Pizza Johns- not to be confused with the pizza chain with a similar name- and you love pizza, go. They are closed Mondays, take off for Christmas and a week or two in the summer but, make sure they are open and eat one of the best pies you'll ever find. Mathews in... More

We go there at least three times a month and we are never disappointed. There pizza is so fresh. The staff is great and it is always spotless. Any leftovers you take home taste like you justjust ordered if when preheated.

This is the best carry out/restaurant in Essex. I have been going there for years. If you want delicious pizza, this is the place. Gets busy during peak weekend hours, but it is worth it.. Their other food items are great also.

Wanted quick & easy tonight so we got a large from PJ's half pepperoni/half cheese. Two orders of fries, all yummy. Total cost just under $25. A little pricey but tasty and as I said quick & easy.

We are from out of town and our friends took us here for dinner, late arrival quick bite to eat. I will say the pizza is ok, but certainly not the best pizza. The best part about our visit was this sweet older lady who was tending to the tables, she made our experience awesome. If you want really good... More

My class stopped here after our last class of the semester, everyone loved it (I always do, been coming here forever!). There were actually a few people not from this side of town who had never been to Pizza John's before, and needless to say all of them left now a fan of their pizza. Got my usual, pepperoni and...
