OK pizza

We have only had pizza at Famous Pizza. Being from the Philadelphia area, we are a little fussy about our pizza. It's hard for a small town like Chincoteague to compete with good Italian pizza from PHL. I will say that Famous Pizza is the best place on Chincoteague island for pizza.

Go early. They were crazy busy the night we went. But food was great as well as service. We got a meatball sub and pizza.

My family and I have eaten at Famous Pizza many times without ever having a bad experience. Excellent pizza, sandwiches, salads, and fixins. Fair prices and friendly people. Not a fancy place by any means.

My family has traveled to Chincoteague for the past few years every year. Every year we get take out pizza from Famous to eat on the beach at night. Their pizza is amazing and they have a decent selection of other foods if you do not want pizza. The only tip is that they are very popular and are usually... More

Their pizza is good, for sure, but don't miss the Brew City Fries. They are, by far, the best fries I've had anywhere. Famous Pizza is always busy, which is a sign of good food. You can get the menu online and call ahead for takeout. It's great food!

I was pleasantly surprised by how good their cheese steaks are. The pizza is good and so are the appetizers. The staff is friendly and the place is clean. Check this place out.

I prefer Ledo's phyllo dough style crust and generous amounts of cheese, but they are a seasonal business, so I bit the bullet and ordered a pizza from Famous. I didn't expect much because my last pizza from Famous (over a year ago) had an extremely small amount of cheese and had a few large blisters that had displaced the... More

Very good food from sandwiches to pizza and even entrees, eat in or take out, you will be treated well and the prices are very reasonable too, open all year round which is a plus on the island.
