“Good pizza, good salad, good staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Magpie's has some unique pizza combinations, every one of them is worth a try. Their salads are great and their breadsticks are the absolute best. The staff at all of Magpie's restaurants are young and hard-working, always making sure the customer is satisfied.

“Best Pizza in AZ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

We love Magpie's for so many reasons. The flavored crusts. The generous toppings. The staff. All put together, the location on Houghton can't be beat.

“High priced pizza not really worth the price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

I went to Magpies because of all the awards it has received over the years. I ordered a take and bake 7 cheese mini pizza on wheat crust. The pizza came on a 16 inch plastic plate inside a 16 inch box. I could not get the pizza off of the plastic plate, it was stuck to it. The wheat crust was not very tasty and the tomato sauce gave me heartburn. Will not be returning. PS I did think the staff were helpful and friendly but why the huge box?

“a Tucson Pizza tradition”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

Home made, thick crust, with generous toppings. There's no arguing with this popular local favorite. Whether dining in, take-out, or delivery, people always return to Magpies.

“Great atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

I showed up really early on a Friday afternoon (5pm) so there were not really a lot of people there. I mainly went for the food and i ordered a seven cheese 8 inch mini pie. It was delicious and the staff treated me great.

I would recommend every check this place out if you are nearby.
