If your idea of pizza is sauce, cheese and pepperoni on a flour tortilla this is your place. Doubt even the sauce is original. Try Handsome Henry's or Handsome Hobo's for a real pizza.

We were visiting the area and not sure where to get dinner at reasonable price. Price is certainly reasonable here but we were disappointed with quality. I understand and love thin crust pizza but this was not to our liking. Greasy and soggy crust. The building itself was nice, atmosphere was nice, can tell it is a local place. I... More

This pizza place to me is maybe my number 7 or 8 out of 10.But to my wife it is number 1.Most of my town I believe would rate this in the top 5.It is very good pizza.You should eat their at least once, and rate it on your scale.

This was our first time at Fricano's and I was surprised by the menu. Pizza is all they serve, one size only and your choice of toppings. I had heard so much about this place and was expecting something outstanding, and was very disappointed. Eating the pizza, I could feel my arteries closing as it is so greasy. Just average... More

Old Italian family pizza receipe that is very distinctive. Thin crust with limited options but the best I have eaten. When we try to figure out why it is different we have decided it is the cheese and sausage that give it that wonderful flavor. This is not chain restaurant food. The original restaurant is still in Grand Haven in... More

This simple pizza joint is a local fave! Original Fricano's is in Grand Haven. When they noticed the amount of Muskegonites driving to get their scrumptious delight they open in Muskegon! Over-looking the Muskegon Lake! My family loves to ride our bikes on the "Lakeshore bike trail" to Fricano's! Great ice cream shoppe below for a sweet treat on the... More

Fricanos has been an institution in West Michigan for decades. One of the family members opened the Muskegon location years ago in an old factory on Muskegon Lake. You have the choice of pizza or pizza with limited toppings. Good service, full bar.

There really is no middle ground here. I have visited many times over the years and have always enjoyed the pizza. It is very thin almost like a cracker, and they have a narrow selection as far as toppings. If you have never been, you need to give it try. Just a warning you may fall in love with it... More

The only thing on the menu is pizza with limited topping choices and beverages (mostly bottle only). For pop they charge for refills. Pizza was extremely greasy - I used a napkin on each slice to sop up some of it - but still got a stomach ache later! The pizza is served on paper plates. Some people swear by... More

If you are going with the thought of being able to order any other food item will be out of luck. They have pizza or pizza. There is very little imagination in what you get.
