Pretty darn good

Tim's has pretty darn good pizza. The crust isn't exactly thin but has a really good crispness to it. They are super generous with the toppings so be prepared for a pizza that is loaded to the 9's if you get several toppings.

The wife and I went here a couple nights ago. When we walked in on a Friday around 5pm there was just one table there. Maybe shouldve been my first clue. We proceeded to counter and were greeted by a young man who was nice and friendly. We went ahead and ordered a Large pizza a salad and one drink... More

We chose this restaurant because of the Chicago Style Pizza offered. Reasonably priced. Good food. They even offered a small FRESH salad bar. Good choice.

Is it fancy? No, but it is clean and inviting. This is a throw back pizza joint. The pizza is outstanding and the owner works the kitchen. There is a viewing window so you can watch the pizza being made. The crust is crust but not thin and the toppings re top shelf. A little more pricey than run if... More

Sometimes when your product is good you forget that service is important as well....I asked about debt cards (which they do not take). The guy at the counter was extremely rude to me!!!! He told me that they have done fine for 26 years without it, and they would continue to do just fine. Mind you our entire party of... More

everyone writing a review about this place says the pizza is good. Can anyone describe the pizza? thin or thick crust? Sweet Red sauce-Roma style or dark and heavy? Cheesy? No photos? gosh people. I will have to go now to make sure some descriptions are in place.

I worked with Tim at Happy Joe's "glory days" in the late 70's-early 80's. When the franchisee pulled out of town, Tim bought some of the equipment, replicated everything great about the recipes, and improved on them. They pile on the toppings (all fresh), the sauce, dough, and cheese mix are what make it special, and it's got an old-school... More

You wouldn't want to go here. First off when you try to call in your order and can't get in its probably because the phone is off the hook. I've heard that when they get busy they just unhook the phone?? Not sure if that's true but I do get a busy signal a lot. The place is old and... More

Tim was the manager at Happy Joe's Pizza in K.C. and after it closed, took the popular recipe and opened his own place.... More
