We've been going to Gil's for three generations. It's the best kept secret for delicious pizza. I'm now in Harford County and wish they would move up here, especially since all of Harford Co., use to live in NE Balto. Come on Gil's owner, move up to Forest Hill you would not be sorry. I think when you do just... More

Great pizza. The cheese is amazing as is the crust. Toppings are under the sauce. We enjoyed the "half-baked" version which is cooked the rest of the way at home- comes out perfect and not just "warmed up.

I grew up on this pizza in the 70's and tried one recently. Unbelievable! I can't wait to go back. Truly there is no pizza around that is this good.

In the old days in North East Baltimore, you had a few good choices for great pizza: LaPores, Ollie Becks, and Gil's. Gil's remains and still has the best pies in the area. It is a shame that the neighborhood has become a jungle and they have thick glass to protect the workers, but this is what the city has... More

I don't know why, but we thought they went out of business. We were sad for years. Then someone corrected us, we started going back. Still the same good solid ingredients, one size, basically one price, still GREAT PIZZA. Note: it has good ingredients and like a real pizza, it's gonna be leaking oil. So when you get it, left...

This is an old Baltimore pizza place that makes just pizza. The combination of cheeses make this a special pizza. If you are looking for your toppings they are under the cheese. My favorite is the cheese on the well done side. Take out only,

My entire childhood my family drove 30 minutes each way to get take out from this place EVERY time we had pizza. To this day nothing else compares. One size only... Take out only... Cash only. They kept it simple... and got it RIGHT.

First pizza I ever had and still my favorite over 50 years later! I have had pizza all over the world and this is the most unique tasting. If you are trendy and pretentious, STAY AWAY!!! Leave Gil's alone. One size pie, minimal choice of toppings, nowhere to sit, but just heaven!

Best pizza in Baltimore! One size, homemade crust, great sauce, and great toppings. I get mine with crushed red pepper and Oregano cooked well done. Can't be bet. Take-out only!
