I go often because it's great

Love this place. Massive beer selection and the staff know what they're talking about of you aren't sure what to drink. I would've given 5 stars, but the meals weren't as good the last time I went. Usually they are really good. Best place to sit is either at the bar, or in the restaurant. The... read more

Recently grabbed a slice and a brew for lunch and enjoyed Penguin Pizza. Place has a cool vibe with decorations on ceiling and walls; with good music playing from sounds system. Lots of beer on tap and huge slices of thin crust pizza. Slices are actually a 1/4 of a large pie for $3.50. Fun place on early weekday afternoon... More

Having had the urge for pizza the other week, my coworkers and I gave penguin pizza a shot. Not expecting anything amazing due to the odd name and location, I was pleasantly surprised! Considering myself a bit of a pizza connoisseur, this was one of the best pepperoni pizzas I had over the last few months. Had the right ingredients... More

I work near Penguin, and many times we order takeout pizzas for lunch. They have some of the most delicious and unusual toppings. The Tuscan Fig and Proscuitto, the Fungus Amongus, and the Agean are among my favorites.

They have the best unfiltered local hard cidar- Downeast. The honalulu pizza was excellent. Its a good place to have an afternoon lunch but I wouldn't bring the kids.

If you love fresh ingredients, thin crusts, magical tastes, great salads, get to the Penguin immediately, if not sooner! Penguin Pizza can be reached on the H Green line at the Mission Hill stop. My faves are the Greek salad and the Aegean Pizza, with fresh tomatoes, homemade pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, spinach, kalamata olives, feta cheese.....only $11.99....soooooo yummy &... More
