Best Pizza in Town

Best Pizza in town!! Locally owned. One of my personal favorites. I'm trying to think of my favorite but I've never had a bad one. The garlic bread is also outstanding. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed. Cheers.

This is a small pizza place so you may have to wait for a table on a busy Friday. The pizza is fantastic and the homemade cheesecake is awesome!

Here's the skinny! We ordered carryout, delivered on time as promised. Pizza (double crust) was fabulous! Chicken wings were atypical, boneless...more like nuggets, they were good as well. Forego the $6 junk salad, it's value is more like $1.99. Delivered salad without forks, and no crushed red pepper or parmesan to top the pizza.

We had plans to dine out of town but they changed suddenly and we found our way to John's. Second time there, great pizza, super friendly service and local wines on the menu. Couldn't ask for more!

I went to John's Pizza with my girlfriend on a quite Saturday afternoon. We started off by ordering some cheesy garlic bread and it was delicious. We then decided to try something different and ordered one of their specialty pizzas. We went with the Chicken Alfredo and have no regrets. I sauce was delicious and the serving size was more... More

The food was homemade and great. Loved the cheesecake-my husband had fabulous spaghetti and meatballs. One meal was enough for 2 people. The only bad thing was the mushrooms were not super. I would eat there again. Nice staff.

Everything here is sooo yummy - my favorites are the potato skins and pizza - so cheesy! But let's be honest - I have yet to have a meal that wasn't yummy!
