great greek pizza

Excellent taste, not too wet, not too dry, crust baked to perfection. This was a phone order take out at the peak dinner hour; the service was super when I went to pick it up.

We had a late lunch here because our usual places were closed on Monday before Memorial Day. Had the flounder basket. The fries were great but the fish had heavy batter and was over cooked forthis type of fish. Have had much better on the island.

We just finished our pizza and I'm not sure what all the hype is about. We ordered two pizzas; one cheese and one specialty. Like another reviewer said, there's a lot of grease on the pizza, which I'll explain next, and the other note is that our specialty pizza included mushrooms. The problem was that the mushrooms were from a... More

Famous Pizza has great food, some Greek options. The Greek salad, spanakopita, and eggplant are wonderful. They even make their own baklava, which is delicious. It is quite inexpensive and has a welcoming family atmosphere. I have eaten here at least once a year each May and the staff has always been friendly.

Best burgers and onion rings. You won't leave hungry. And their pizza is very good also. Quaint little place, service was pretty good food was better.

I'm not a foodie, but I am kind of picky about going out to eat. We enjoyed Famous Pizza so much that we ate there twice in two days. Wish we hadn't had to leave town, I really wanted to try the rockfish! Seriously, I'm dreaming about it... Had pizza, house salad, chicken, all good. A cheeseburger special with fries... More

There were very few restaurants open (that weren't seafood) when we visited in March so we tried Famous Pizza. We had pizza, soup, and gyros. All of it was okay--nothing to write home about. They seemed to do a brisk carryout business. Our food took longer than we expected to arrive, but the service was friendly. The staff at our... More

We ordered subs to go, with dressing on the side to avoid soggy subs and packed them in a picnic basket for Assateague island. A few hours later, they were still delicious. I had a turkey & cheese, and my mom & dad had an Italian sub. Small is good for one, large good for two with chips... Unless you... More
