“OK, Crazy GREAT Pizza!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

Not your average pizza joint. Really some of the Best Pizza in Texas! It has to do with the ingrediance, like the cheese, special seasonings in their sauce, sausage and dough. I love Chicago style pizza, but this has got everything beat. Really need to try and at least then you can appreciate.

“Tired of Fast Food on the Road?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Driving from Austin to Tuscaloosa, one gets tired of fast food drive-thrus. We found Pizza King's review and decided to pull over for awhile. It is a bit out of the way off the highway, but worth the effort. We enjoyed the small town feel of the place. We were there during an off time but the service was good. Toppings were very tasty and fresh. The crust is a bit like a cracker for me that is the reason I struggled on the rating. We both ordered small pizza and could have definitely shared. Very good value.

“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

This is our favorite pizza restaurant. Anytime we are in town, we make it a point to visit Pizza King. The food is great, the service is great, and you always run into someone you know! The house salad dressing is fabulous, the pizza is always good, no matter which toppings you choose. Love this place!

“We Raised Our Kids at Pizza King”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Our favorite pizza restaurant is Pizza King-- hands down! My kids, now grown and with kids of their own, were primed for Pizza King because I craved Pizza King pizza when I was pregnant with them.

Now that some of the family now lives in Houston you'd think we'd find a pizza place that could equal or surpass Pizza King. Nope! Not the case-- not even close! When we go back to NE Texas or some family member comes to Houston, we usually pick up several large pizzas to bring back (they'll vacuum-pack them for you if you ask) or we ask someone to bring some to us. Then we enjoy one or two and freeze the rest for later.

Yes, service can be slow due to the many those who patronize the restaurant at all hours of the day, but the pizza is well-worth the wait. Believe me, they put more ingredients on their pizzas for a lower price that any of the chains and any of the pizza places we're encountered in Houston in over a decade!

“Why eat at a chain restaurant?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

I was with a group of at least 40 people who were visiting Longview to attend a high school basketball game. After the game we wanted to attend a local restaurant rather than a chain. The atmosphere is great - small town restaurant with an obvious local following. The pizza was very good and a great value. I just didn't like the sausage pizza - fine, crumbled sausage. All the other pizza was very good. We will definitely go there again, and I highly recommend it.
