Delicious Deep Dish

Pizza Shack is one of our favorite pizza places ever. We love their specialty pizzas, especially the barbecue chicken. They have a full range of fresh ingredients, but what's always set them apart for me is the quality of their cheeses--so dense and rich and flavorful. Their sandwiches are also... read more

This place, hands down, has the BEST PIZZA around!!! We often order for takeout and they are amazing. Thick crust, great sauce, plenty of toppings and loaded with cheese. They even have a philly cheese steak the size of your forearm and a Caesar salad big enough to feed four. This place is not afraid to give you, your money's... More

I ordered from Byram tonight and they got two out of 3 pizzas correct.....the black/olive mushroom pizza turned out to be a Supreme.....shame on me for being lulled into a false sense of security and not checking my order before Ieft.

Where to start? We had heard all about how good their pizza was. Horrible service. Lost our order, and we ordered at the counter. They were not very busy. They did give us a larger pizza for the inconvenience (the only upside). We ordered a bacon pizza. How does someone make bacon taste bad? They burn it. The pizza had... More

We stopped in Jackson on the way to Orange Beach and went to The Pizza Shack. After traveling all day, we were looking for a cold beer and some good pizza, but got neither. The service was terrible and the pizza was average, at best. The car parked beside us in the parking lot was broken into while we were... More

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!
