Description: In the five years since Waldo Pizza last won this category, Phil Bourne's KC institution has inched nearer the quarter-century mark with an ever-growing beer list, a popular gluten-free crust and yet another expansion of the original site. What hasn't changed: the place's dead-solid reliability. That might sound like faint praise, until you remember the second law of restaurant thermodynamics: entropy. Even beloved destinations occasionally coast, sometimes to a full stop. Not Waldo Pizza, where Bourne and a crew including not just regulars but lifers keep vigil over the details while attending devoutly to customers. A wall of Saturday-night families, a switchboard lit up with delivery orders, a keg about to run dry — none of these eventualities lead to so much as a stray green-pepper sliver when your pie shows up in front of you. But bring on the green peppers — and the banana peppers and the spicy beef and the cheddar and everything else on a menu that's long on good ideas.

This is a family owned restaurant. They are so accommodating to families and groups such as soccer parties. They really are chill and the food is great. Always the go to place for kids events.

“Excellent Pizza and Beer!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

I drove forever and didn't see *any* place that I thought I might like to eat and drink at and then I find this nice strip of shops with Waldo Pizza right in the middle of it. Kind of an older place with nice decor on the wall. They had a buffet but we skipped that and ordered from the menu. Nice selection of beers and flights (beer samples) were also available. The pizza was excellent!

“Best Pizza!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

The best pizza in the Brookside/Waldo area - Maybe in all of KC!! I prefer the St. Louis style thin crust. They also offer gluten free (have them twice bake it). There is a great tap room with excellent beer choices - always something new to choose from - ask Jake.

“One of the best Pizzas in town.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Waldo pizza has lots of options on their menu. From 4 different crusts to a plethora of toppings, there is something for everyone. They even offer vegan options. The service is good, and the atmosphere light and fun. There is a second location 20 minutes east of Kansas City in Lees Summit, Missouri. Hands down it is the best pizza in town!

“Great Gluten Free Menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Waldo Pizza has a very good gluten & dairy free menu and great pizza. The salad dressings are hand made and delicious. The pizza I had was the best I've ever had be it regular or gluten free. the left overs were just as good the next day. They also serve a great cup of coffee.
