“A Christmas Tradition”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

We aways get our Christmas trees at Seaone"s in Abington and head over to Lynwoods for pizza after. The bar is a "Dive Bar" and there is nothing else served besides pizza. The staffers are noticeably friendlier than they used to be and that is refreshing. Pizza and cold beer. You gotta love it!

“Pizza at its very best!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

If you're searching for atmosphere or decent service, look elsewhere, however, the pizza is incredible is worth looking beyond the aforementioned. A Randolph favorite for many years and folks from all over flock here. Many have moved away from this town which unfortunately has gone down hill over the years but no one forgets about Lynwood as they continue to come back solely for the great pizza. The waitstaff is mostly awful and food usually just left at your table without anyone uttering the words, enjoy, how was your meal and of course, never a thank you. The place has seen better days but again, its only pizza they're serving. Lastly, they have crushed red pepper on the tables yet don't have parmesan cheese like all other pizza places have. Enjoy

“Always a hit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

They only sell pizza at Lynwoods. The pizza at Lynwoods is bar style. It is always a hit. The drinks are reasonable and the place is always packed. It is cash only so be aware.
Lately the wait staff has been pleasant. This is a nice change!

“Best Pizza Anywhere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

This is by far the best pizza anywhere and the drinks are reasonable. Long wait at certain times but well worth it. The service is great and the people are fantastic. One of the few restaurants that only accept cash and only serve pizza and drinks. You can buy a bag of potato chips but that is all besides pizza.

“Best Pizza Period”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

Once again and after decades, Lynwood Cafe serves up the best Pizza anywhere. This year I had the chance while I was visiting the area to have a Lynwood pizza 3 different times. Didn't have to wait as long as some years (might have ordered during an off time of day). Remember that it is cash only here. That's ok. It's worth every penny for the taste of a plain cheese. If you are in the area, you need to stop in or take out a pizza from Lynwoods.
