Description: In the five years since Waldo Pizza last won this category, Phil Bourne's KC institution has inched nearer the quarter-century mark with an ever-growing beer list, a popular gluten-free crust and yet another expansion of the original site. What hasn't changed: the place's dead-solid reliability. That might sound like faint praise, until you remember the second law of restaurant thermodynamics: entropy. Even beloved destinations occasionally coast, sometimes to a full stop. Not Waldo Pizza, where Bourne and a crew including not just regulars but lifers keep vigil over the details while attending devoutly to customers. A wall of Saturday-night families, a switchboard lit up with delivery orders, a keg about to run dry — none of these eventualities lead to so much as a stray green-pepper sliver when your pie shows up in front of you. But bring on the green peppers — and the banana peppers and the spicy beef and the cheddar and everything else on a menu that's long on good ideas.

Sorry to say this place is not worth the Hype. Overall, I felt like the place was dirty from the carpet to the cards stuck to the ceiling, also the restrooms while better than some were still dirtier than I would have liked. The Pizza was bland and I felt under cooked, overpriced for what I got.

The pizza here is excellent the buffet line is pretty good the ranch dressing is awesome most of the servers are kind of skinny Jean hipsters with silly tats but the food is good and it is worth stopping in if you haven't had it

2 sons and wife actually were in the area for a different eatery-was closed for Labor Day. Suggested we try Waldo's. Happy to see there was a crowd and waiting line to get a booth. Service was great. Were kind of directed to buffet-I was a newby so I went along. $50 later-salad was good because I constructed it and... More

Thin crust, St Louis style at its finest. This KC staple has been around forever and the taste has been consistent since the beginning. You should go for the lunch buffet if you're in the area. Take as many trips back to the salad/pizza bar as you want. At night, we recommend dining in the side Tap Room where you... More

My son-in-law and I ordered some chicken wings. Good flavor, nice & crispy. The blue cheese dressing is the best I have ever had. I told the waitress I could actually drink the stuff. She said they made it there, and you could purchase some for $3. I believe it's for a pint. My son-in-law had the salad bar. I... More

I didn't have the pizza, so I'm only reviewing the pasta dish I had. I had the cheese lasagna. It was too mushy. I kept digging around to see if there were any noodles in it. I did find some, but couldn't tell it by taste/texture. The service and iced tea were great!
