Best pizza there is

Every trip to iron river should include a stop at riverside. Best thin crust pizza around. Love how they cut it into small squares.

Great pizza - great place! Even offer Gluten free crust too. We eat here often and when people come from out of town they have to get their Riverside Pizza

We went there based in the reviews. The service was prompt and friendly. We ordered 2 large pizzas... one cheese and one pepperoni. As we waited and watched others come and leave, we knew we had made a mistake. Every takeout order had at least 3 pizzas and the people dining there ordered at least one pizza to go with... More

I used to love deep dish pizza, until I had Riverside pizza. It is incredible, crispy thin crust pizza - now the only kind I want! The atmosphere is classic small town diner - hasn't changed since the 70's - complete with jukebox and a few video games. the sausage and onion is a great combination, as is pepperocini and... More

This is a classic thin crust pizza. Just like the thin crust I used to get on the south side of Chicago when I was a kid. Not much atmosphere good for with small kids or to go.

It was so good we went 2 nights in a row. Would like to see them add tomatos & spinach to list of available pizza toppings. Best pizza crust ever. I do believe only pizza & hot dogs are on the menu so don't go expecting a varied menu.

I grew up in Iron River and have always thought that the pizza with the homemade sauce and sausage was the best ever, but now so does my whole family. We don't get to Iron River often, but when we do, Riverside is our first stop for the pizza. We then order half baked frozen pizza's to bring back home.

If you are ever staying in the Iron River area this is a must stop, family recipe forever. They only make thin crust so if you are in town from Chicago no luck. Another hint ask them to layer the cheese rather than sprinkle MMMgood.
