“Old School College Pizza!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

Since I was a kid, this has always been one of the best pizza spots in C'ville. Good food, decent prices and they even deliver downtown!

“Good food, interesting employees”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013 via mobile

Just passing through Charlottesville and saw this nice little place. The girl who served us was really sweet (didn't catch her name but she was blonde) and took our order quickly. All was good until she put the food down and another girl said 'no that's my salad' pointing at my sister's plate. This other girl worked there and took the salad for herself, which i couldn't believe. Our server was so nice that I didn't complain but the other girl lowered this rating big time.

“Always good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

I've been eating here since 1985. It is as good today as it was then. Good pizza, good O rings, good shakes, etc etc etc. Subs are good too and the people are always nice. No visit to UVa is complete without a stop at the College Inn.

“one of the last remaining "old" places on the corner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

We went here with family and visiting friends recently and enjoyed our meal very much. The service was attentive, although for the first twenty minutes it seemed like the air conditioning might not be working because it was super hot and stuffy. Eventually things did cool down. The chicken souvlaki was a favorite! Definitely try this if you're interested in something that's been part of the UVA community much longer than all of the neighboring restaurants.

“NOT IMPRESSED”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

We order from here several times a month for lunch delivery (because they deliver to the Downtown Mall area) and usually the food is ok/average/so-so. Today I got the Chancellor (grilled chicken breast sandwich) with a side salad. The chicken breast was less than 1/4 inch thick, tough and dry as a bone! It was more like chicken jerky and the appearance reminded me very much of the chicken dog treats that are so popular now. The side salad vegetable blend was also dry and starting to turn brown. DEFINITELY NOT WORTH THE PRICE. I doubt I will order from here again. My last order was the Souvlaki and the pork was also tough and dry...seeing a pattern here?
