U of M staple - great pizza and great price!

The macaroni and cheese pizza is incredible, and Mesa is the only place I've ever found who does it right. They have a great variety of fun kinds of pizza, available by the slice so you can try a couple!

While walking thru Dinkytown we were interested in this place. The staff was very friendly and helpful explaining the variety of pizza ready. The shop was a bit dark and not the cleanest. The pizza was good, but not something we would go out of our way to eat again.

Before I begin, this place's target customer is a hungry college student, sobriety not important, and with that in mind, Mesa hits the nail right on the head. Perfect for a quick bite at lunch, or (even better) a late night snack after a few bars. Great variety and some bizarre combinations that never seems to disappoint. A must-stop for... More

Love the options for toppings and the ability to do 1/2 and 1/2. Specialty pizzas were a bit pricey, but the flavor was great. Especially loved the kalamata olive pizza with mozzarella and red peppers. Delivery was great and only took 30 minutes to arrive during a particularly busy time.

At one level, this is a hole in the wall kind of place--a bit dingy, and there's only a little seating (not enough when it gets hopping at late night)--but the focus is on the pizza. The joy here is the by-the-slice selection from about 20 varieties, which all look very appealing when laid out before you (behind the glass).... More

If you have been looking for East Coast style pizza in MN look no further. This place has so many varieties to choose from. I had the bbq pulled pork pizza and the greek pizza. The bbq pulled pork pizza was outstanding. Two of my favorite things in one. It was quick and reasonably priced. I recommend this place to... More

I love the pizza-by-the-slice style pizzerias. My favorite is Ian's, in Madison, WI. This place is now in second. The pizza is phenomenal. I had a slice of spinach & alfredo, and a slice of fajita pizza. The fajita literally had a fajita on it...shell and all. It had just the right amount of kick to it, too. It's quick... More

This little pizza spot in Dinkytown at the Univ of MN serves up a great slice of pizza in an amazing variety of flavors including Tortellini and Philly Cheesesteak too mention a few. The pizza slices are pre-made but heated up in a pizza oven and are very very good. No beer but that's okay. Great seats looking out over... More

Mesa is just a classic. Cheap meal, the staff are awesome and the pizza is fantastic! The Mac & Cheese is definitely the classic for U of M students.

Stopped in here on the 19th on my way home from work. They have a wide variety of pizzas, such as Chicken Alfredo Pizza, Southwest Taco Pizza, Mac & Cheese Pizza and a few others. Pretty sure they'll do custom, but I can't recall exactly what the sign said. The Cheese Pizza and Pepperoni Pizza slices are the cheapest @... More
