A staple in the area

I have known Jerry and eaten at this restaurant (or other location) since 1987. I live out of town now but this is a NEVER miss for my family...NEVER! The food is as good as it has always been and when I think of a calzone, this is the standard!

Steps off campus, I know why this place always has a standing crowd. The calzone was delizioso. The crust was crispy, the cheese was gooey and the sauce and sausages inside were spiced correctly. How fun to have your calzone placed back in the pizza oven and brought to the table on an oldfashioned paper plate, just like it should... More

Not many non-chain food places open for Sunday Dinner so we opted for this place based on reviews. We shared a vegetarian calzone and were very happy with the flavor and the crust. Its an "order at the counter" place frequeneted by college students so nothing fancy

Stopped by to get some calzones for dinner. They were great. In fact, I've been dropping in to One Guy's for maybe 20 years and have never been disappointed.

Came up from corpus Christi to see family. Looking for a place to eat and found this gem. Right next to the university and great customer service. Had the Caesar salad and large pizza. Everything was amazing. A big gotta try the place out.

We wanted a good vegetarian meal, and the margarita pizza was a hit, perhaps the best pizza they make. Small place with huge taste.

Found an authentic New York Pizzeria across the street, from Texas Tech University. Frankly I was shocked, it was better than any pizza, I had eaten in the big apple. I should know, I was born in Manhattan! Their sauce, and perfectly cooked crispy crust, had me singing O Solo Mio. My wife had the calzone! Equally delicious! The chef,... More

One guys is one of the oldest pizza restaurants in town. Everything is handmade and fresh. The calzones are really , really exceptional. Even with the pizza we always have to have a couple of those too!

They really do use canned mushrooms... we may be in West Texas but you can get fresh mushrooms every day. Pizza crust and calzone crust was very good but the sauce is not all that great.
