Thin crust pizza

The menu is limited - one size pizza (about 12 inches/8 slices), thin crust, 5 toppings from which to choose. There are no menus. The waitress couldn't tell us the price of the pizza. We ordered 3 pizzas for 5 people - just about right. Not a lot of atmosphere. Great place to take your... read more

If you like thin crust this may be the place for you. Get it any way you like. Large windows overlooking Muskegon Lake. Generous seating and great wait staff.

Fricano's is one of my favorites pizzas in the country. They are unique and very tasty. I drive almost 2 hours to get their pizza. All authentic and homemade.

There are no menus. The limited number of toppings are listed on the paper placemat. I didn't see a price or a size. Of course there is just one size, 12 inch thin ((very thin) crust. Just 12 inch thin crust pizza... nothing else. Pizza was not that great and one of ours was burnt on the edges. Very little... More

If you don't like pizza, this isn't the place for you since that's the only thing on the menu. Served on small paper plates and with plastic forks. You get a choice of 5 toppings that includes cheese. Great view.

We stumbled on Fricano's while looking for a place to eat in Muskegon, Mi. It is kind of hidden away in a large, multi-use brick building by the lake with very little advertising outside. However, it must be known by the locals because it had a good crowd. The menu is limited - pizza. I am not usually a thin-crust... More

We dined at Fricano's on the 4th of July and it was very crowded. With young kids, we were anxious to sit down and the only available immediate seating was outside. The outdoor seating is just ok. You are on the side of the building facing a courtyard and the parking lot. The pizza only comes in one size and... More

Have eaten here 3 times now, it's a must-have each visit to Muskegon! Very simple one type of crust ( love thin crust,& it's extra thin) and 5 toppings to choose from served with a paper plate and a napkin & fork. Simplicity at it's best!

Pizza is my favorite food so I've eaten A LOT of it in my lifetime, and I consider myself to be quite the pizza efficienado. :-) Fricano's pizza is my favorite of any I've had, ANYWHERE in the world (including my own homemade pizza, which happens to be the favorite of my husband and 7 grandkids).
