“A Taste of Chicago in the Heart of Texas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

I travel all over the United States for my work. My favorite city to eat pizza is Chicago.
J&J's has caputured the taste and feel of the great pizzerias of Chicago. Places like Giordano's & Gino's East ...So when you want a cold Lone Star Beer with a great Chicago pizza head to J&J's on the square across the street from the old court house .. :-)

“No cash = rude service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012

Although the food here is great, it doesn't make up for the rude sevice if you use a debit or credit card. They will complain about not making a profit, along with charging you for you using the convienece of a card. So if you want good food without the complaint of you using a card, being charged extra for using it then go somewhere else

“My fave Pizza in Denton”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2009

I love J&Js Pizza--it's my fave place to get pizza in town! Their ingredients are extremely fresh and of very high quality, and both their pizzas and calezones are outstanding! I also love their salads and house dressing. They have great take out as well as dine-in options, and a funky ambiance in an historic building on the Square. Occasionally the service is annoying, with the typical Denton-style of service of seemingly-stoned college students paying more attention to talking to each other than what you need. However, I've never had a negative experience w/ the service, and the food has NEVER disappointed. Great place to step in for a yummy pizza, beer on tap, and conversation with friends and loved ones!

“Love J&J's!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2009

Their calzones are the best and their pizza is yummy. It is a very comfy cozy casual cafe. They even have artichoke hearts as a topping. They have live music in the basement on the weekends. One down side is that they are a bit above average prices--no coupons medium pizza is $9. They offer delivery. They are unfortunately closed Sundays.

“Great to hang or catch music, but avoid the pizza”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2009

In Denton for 10 years, there was only one bright spot for pizza in this town. That was The Tomato, and it was knocked down by a developer on what now stands as empty lots. Though I've heard great things about J&Js pizza, I've tried it a number of times, and it is not very good at all. Bland sauce, bland crust, bland pizza.

Hanging out with friends, listing to their bands and having a couple of beers is a great time, though. Enjoy it for that, but eat elsewhere.
