This is the best pizza around! Bar area with TV for sports and another area with tables for just dinner. Full bar and priced right. The pizza is served two ways. The new way with cheese on top and the old way with sauce top. I prefer the old way. Nothing else like it around. Have been going there for... More

Smoky, pungent, lean kielbasa on the combo special pizza beats pepperoni - not offered here - & better than bacon- every time. One generous personal pizza size only - everything Combo for less than $7.00! Unchanged since 1957. Truly excellent and authentic Polish Pizza- Consistent for over 50 years.

.... not for the service:). Still my favorite pizza of all time! I always get chicken and garlic.. and it never has disappointed me. Service is always slow. It's loud inside. Drinks are too small (sodas anyway). You try to flag someone to get another drink. You're ignored. Then you watch the waitress walk by with everyone else's pizzas that... More

While Jimi Hendriks plays in the background we dine on delicious pizza. Real leather booths great beer signs straight out of the 60s. Can see why it is adored by locals and anyone looking for good pizza. Thin crust and tasty

Booths with red vinyl, beer, pizza - cheap and good. A very loyal fan base. Love it! It's a rough cut gem.

The good: hot fresh pizza, cold beer, low prices, great service, free parking, you'll see friends, it's a tradition. The bad: it is 1960, and not because it was made to look that way, the pizza is ok, don't try to take it home to reheat, there are no salads, there is a mix of silver and plastic, no plates,... More

Just pizza, just one size. Thin crust and simply delicious. Good prices on wine and beer. This is a truly authentic, one-of-a-kind place that's been around forever. Cash only. Not fancy.

I must of missed something! Because all the hype and star rating do not match the experience I had at the Riverview! Plus love the joint atmosphere, they had beer, pizza was hot and fresh,price. Cons, pizza sauce tasted like it came from a can, I personally hate thin cracker crust and that's what you get! I don't care if... More

We have been coming to this place for over forty years! The crust is thin and the pizza is very tasty. Most of all, the prices are very reasonable. You must arrive before five on weekends or be prepared to wait. The pizza has been consistent all these years and keeps us coming back. Bring cash, credit cards are not... More
