Never has let me down

I come to the island several times a year and this is always on my places to eat . The food is consistent . It is also nice to be able to see the same employees each time .

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

We ordered deliver twice from this restaurant. The food was exceptional in the arena of "cheap eats". They were wonderful and helpful over the phone, the food was delivered quickly from a great delivery man and it was delicious and plentiful. A great bargain for you dollar. Can't say enough good things about Famous Pizza.

Had pepperoni pizza. The kids and the adults had to use 4 napkins per slice to dab off the oil slicks of grease on each slice. It wasn't the pepperoni ...it was the cheese. The crust looked like frozen dough pressed into a pie plate and tasted like it too. Frozen pizzen is MUCH better!! We didn't finish it...and left... More

I enjoyed the pizza, but it was very loud. The pizza uses real Mozzarella cheese. I recommend it if you would like pizza on Chincoteague.

Stopped by for a cheesesteak. Didn't have much flavor. I have had their pizza before and it was pretty good.

Went on recommendation of local friend. Really crowded that day due to St. Patrick's Day activities in town so service was slow. Food was alright but not outstanding.
