Good Pizza

Ate at Famous's twice while on vacation. Once for Pizza and once for Cheese Steaks. Both times it was good. Staff is friendly as well. Probably the best pizza in town too. Good cheese steak.

We ordered two pizzas and a salad and had it delivered poolside at our hotel! The pizza was delicious and had a great crust! This is excellent local pizza! Better then the Ledos on the island in my book :-)

Have been going to Chincoteague for many years. At least one trip to Famous is a requirement. It is not fancy at all, but the food is excellent.....I have never had better pizza and look forward to the trip to Famous as much as the trip to the Island!

We can't talk about the pizza, but the Italian subs were delicious. Lots of meat, fresh lettuce and tomatos, good Italian dressing. We actually visited twice because of the location and the subs. Nothing fancy, just some good sandwiches!

Pizza was ok. Just a different taste than we are used to in NY. Sub was good with lots of meat...nothing spectacular.

We have never found pizza that we LOVE on the island. However, Famous Pizza offers a nice selection of salads, pizza and basic grill food. When you're tired of seafood, this place offers a reasonable alternative.

Good pizza. We ordered a large pizza and it was very good. Not your fast food pizza but a yummy home made one with great flavor.

Visited here twice during our recent Chincoteague vacation, and picked up pizzas for dinner once too! Quick, fast and delicious. Loved the crab cakes, flounder, shrimp, pizzas, subs and everything we got when there.
