Asked people that at one time lived in Blacksburg and they said to go there. The pizza was great. Had just a New York crust but was great. Will be back again.

I had never heard of Baltimore-style pizza before visiting Backstreet's Pizza, so naturally we had to go for it. Topping off the special crust with grilled shrimp and black olives was a real treat - and I normally do not like shrimp on pizza! Attentive hostess and waiter, without being intrusive, made the visit very pleasant. I was impressed by... More

Thanks for the review ! I grew up in Baltimore, I don't think there is a formal Baltimore style pizza per se. I modeled this pizza on my favorite pizza place called Gussies. They used white cheddar and hand formed their crust . Apparenlty they are still open and specialize in pizza and crabcakes. A lot fo pizza ,places owned... More

My husband and I are pretty new to the area, but we've already tried Backstreet's three times. The first two times were for take out pizza. Delicious pizza! The third try was today for a late lunch. We ordered beers, an appetizer, and two entrees. The beer was good, and the mozzarella sticks were great! Unfortunately, my husband's entree arrived... More

Hi ! I am very sorry you had a bad experience with our service on Sunday . i believe your order was for a 12" merger, crawfish ravioli? I have looked into your order and found that this was a mistake by the server, not the kitchen. This is the first time we have had a problem with this server,... More

they have a large selection of pizzas to choose from - i usually get their meat lovers one. they are good about having large groups but they do charge an automatic 18% tip for groups 8+. sitting outside is nice though you are right there with the traffic from Main Street. Not much parking at the restaurant but it is... More

We dined on the patio and shared a Mediterranean deep dish pizza without chicken. Attentive waiter. 'Excellent'.

I had read online about Backstreets and talked a friend into going today. We ordered the Baltimore pizza because with extra sauce, white cheddar cheese, and garlic on the crust I felt that this would be the perfect pizza. When we got the pizza the bottom was a little burnt, the pizza was not very warm, there was no garlic... More

Hi, I am so sorry you had a bad time at our restaurant. We always have managers on duty to handle any complaint, and we would never penalize a server for a food related complaint. I am glad that you thought aaron did a good job, but he would have taken your food off the bill if he had known... More

Backstreets has been a mainstay restaurant we hit whenever we visited our son at VT. The breadsticks are massive (about 10-12" long) made from pizza dough. The fried mushrooms were large slices of portabella not overly breaded and just full of flavor. I never got a chance to taste the mozzarella sticks because they were GONE by the time I... More

We went for the lunch buffet a couple weeks ago and I was pleasantly surprised. They offer a variety of fresh, hot pizzas and, in addition, extras like buffalo chicken tenders, baked ziti, some dessert items, and more. Pizza is also pretty good in general.

Nothing extraordinary, but a nice, fun place to have a pizza or similar fare. Within walking distance of VA Tech campus. We received good service and good food in a nice comfortable place. If you want a fancy dinner, try somewhere else. Otherwise Backstreet Pizza is worth a try.

If they would prep just a little bit... it would be sooo much better! I LOVE their spagadi but we never go here because the service is SOOOO slow & they never bring you anything to offset it like bread or something unless you buy an app.
