Skip the chain places and buy local!

Exceptional little family-owned pizza joint that's been around since I was a kid. Do yourself a favor and stop in for a Clown Special and the Italian Stallion. You won't regret it!

We enjoyed our recent meal at this establishment. It has good pizza at good prices. It is clean, well managed and has a charming "Mom & Pop" feel about it. The are well established and have been in operation since the 1970's. Easily a local favorite.

If you like local family owned pizza parlors this is the place for you to visit. We found the service excellent and the pizza beyond comparable to the chain stores. The salad and breadsticks for good as an appetizer while we were waiting on the pizza. When the pizza arrived it was hot and fresh and just the way we... More

This is a nice little pizza place. The pizza is well made. Sandwiches are good and the French fries are freshly made to order.

Pog's as the local call it has been serving pizza and pasta for years. Their signature pizza is the Clown which is similar to a supreme other places. The crust is thin but not thin like a cracker that other places serve. Staff is always friendly. They do get very busy in the weekend so you may have a wait... More

Their clown pizza is the best pizza I have ever had. I have been fortunate enough to travel and still to this day have yet to find a better pizza.

Clean and friendly atmosphere , pizza is awesome and always made the same , consistent and great service . This restaurant is where when alumni have moved away and come back to visit, this is where many feel like they have arrived . Reminisce and relax, and many see each other especially around the holidays.

Went here because of Trip Advisor. Pizza was OK. But I'm from Chicago so I'm jaded. I expect pizza to be really good all the time. This was fair. Cheese didn't taste quite right and maybe they used low fat instead of whole milk. Sausage was also just fair, not enough spices. But waitresses were very nice, attentive and helpful.... More

I love the friendly atmosphere at Pog's Pizza. The Italian food is soooo good and the whole evening promises to be a fun one.
