Best pizza by the slice

They have a wonderful clean restaurant and have wonderful food, it's fresh and well thought through! You won't want to stop eating their pizza.

Mac N Cheese pizza is my go-to slice on the run but I do enjoy their brisket and potato pizza. Sure their traditional sausage slice is a crispy version of standard New York fair but its their goofier pizzas that really shine.

I really appreciated the fresh tomato pizza that it's incredibly genuine. You can select from plenty flavours and whatever you choose I think you can't go wrong. The pizza is more on the crispy side that, for a fast-food service, I think is the best solution. (Easier to reheat, less heavy on the stomach). The guys are funny (also if... More

I'm not a huge pizza fan but Ian's pizza is in a category of its own!!! Mac & Cheese, Cheesy Potato with Ranch, Penne Alfredo, Smokey the Bandit, Buffalo Chicken are only a few of my favorites!

We stopped in for lunch yesterday and tried the mac and cheese, pepperoni, and chicken alfredo slices. The mac and cheese was too bland for us, but the chicken alfredo hit the spot. Service was fast in this bustling restaurant and there was plenty of seating inside and out. Stop in for a slice if you are in the area.

Ian's has the BEST Ceasar salad! So much that my hubby and I ate there every day while in Madison. Pizzas very creative, though we prefer old school pepperoni. Staff very friendly and quick to get order completed.

WoW! Try the macaroni and cheese pizza, it will not disappoint! YUM! This is a popular pizza spot for all the locals, sometimes the line goes out the door! The line moves fast though, so don't be discouraged! It is certainly worth the wait! Pizza by the slice, so you can taste all that you like!

We have been here for two days and only eaten at the Great Dane (which is phenomenal). So tonight we decided to try something different and found this little pizza joint. Apparently every Wednesday they have music live on the street. We went in and ordered (cafeteria style). I got the Mac & Cheese pizza and a 1/2 Caesar salad.... More
