Great pizza

All pizzas and salads are very good. There needs to be some updates on the facility on Old Canton Road, but the food is very good.

Grabbed some pizza and cheesy bread to take back to our hotel during a recent stop in Jackson. Pizza was pretty good -- doughy crust that's not quite deep dish but nowhere near thin. Cheesy bread was just okay -- standard stuff that became unpleasant when it cooled. Service was great, though. Friendly and helpful with not only the menu... More

Visited this quaint little place... Looks like local hangout... It's self serve... The people taking orders were very nice... Asked around what is good to do in town and only answer is the Science museum... Ordered cheese sticks that looks like pizza cut in sticks... Ordered a cheese pizza that taste like cheese and no different from the cheese sticks...... More

Best pizza in the South! Friendly servers and reasonable prices. They could use a little bigger parking lot. It would be nice if they offered delivery, but they did help to carry our ten pizzas to the car.

The pizza here is awesome! The Carnivore is a must when eating at The Pizza Shack! The food as well as the service has been consistent every since I started eating here. (Around 4 years ago) Please give this place a try, you won’t regret it!

I personally love the Cajun Joe Pizza!! I've tried the Buffalo Ranch with Bacon & the Barbque pork...,both are delicious but the Cajun Joe is my favorite! The lady at the register is extremely nice & very helpful! It's a little hole in the wall but well worth the visit!!

It's a very average pizza joint. They serve up a thick pizza ... the supreme has everything including way to many black olives and slivers of dry mushroom. The contents were barely warm while the crust was dark brown and over cooked. A skinny kid with his pants tucked into old combat boots and a mohawk delivers our pizza. Access... More

My family and I make homemade pizza all the time. This the closest thing to it. Yes it is expensive but you get what you pay for and it is well worth it. If you are in Jackson, you should give it a try!
