Order a Pikes Peak Pizza to go on website. Pictures on website of Pikes Peak pizza show a boat load of meat. The Pikes Peak pizza that was picked up did not look like the same picture due to the lack of meat. The pizza...tasted good but I don't like getting ripped off, will not be going backMore

Everything here is good. Tasty pizza, reasonable prices, and friendly staff. They also have a family night that is really cheap.

During a May 2019 trip to Lake Forest we were in the mood for pizza for dinner. We found Mountain Mike's near where we were staying and gave it a try. We ordered a basic large cheese pizza for takeout to our hotel. When we...picked it up the woman manning the counter was very nice and provided us with plates, forks, and napkins without us having to ask for them. The pizza was very good and smelled great while I was driving it back to the hotel. It was thick crust, cut into very thin slices and had a good amount of cheese and sauce. The pizza was a little pricier than what they charge where I live, but it may be the way it is in Lake Forest. Getting into the restaurant was a little confusing. From the parking lot I went to the front of the building and found a door with a sign that said "open", though the door was locked. I then went to the other street facing side and there was no door there. I finally found that to enter the restaurant you had to go between Mountain Mike's and the adjacent store to find the entrance, where there were some outside tables that patrons could sit at. Everyone in our family enjoyed the pizza once we brought it back to the hotel.More

If it is your first time, I would suggest the All-You-Can-Eat Buffet. Not because it is all-you-can-eat, but it is a great way to try different pizzas and get some salad veggies too. Plus, at $7.99 for lunch and $8.99 for dinner, it’s a bargain!...Kids, 10 and under, are only $5.99! Next time you want pizza, you’ll know what to order. Have a group that just can’t decide on one pizza? Mountain Mike’s can make a half and half. We ordered Chicken Club (creamy garlic white sauce, chicken, bacon, diced tomatoes, and green onion) on one side and on the other, Garlic Tuscan (traditional red sauce, Louisiana hot sausage, salami, black olives, garlic, green onion, and sundried tomatoes). I just love pizzas with white sauce! Tomatoes can cause problems for me, so I try to avoid it as much as I can (as a food writer, it’s hard). The white sauce is creamy and garlicky (I could handle more). The pizza really resembles the flavor of a chicken club sandwich with the chunks of chicken and smoky, salty bacon. The green onions add a nice refreshing zing. The Garlic Tuscan is the hubby’s favorite (not just because he’s part Italian)! He just loves meaty pizzas. The slightly spicy sausage, salami, and olives exude savory flavors while the green onion refreshes the palate and the sundried tomatoes add a bit of sweetness. Snowy Alps is my favorite pizza! It starts with creamy garlic white sauce topped with pepperoni, mushrooms, black olives, sausage, green onions, and diced tomatoes. It combines my love of the garlic sauce with a meaty pizza. I didn’t mention it before, but I also love their traditional crust. I don’t like it too thin and I need to be in the mood for a thick crust (because it just fills you up). Mountain Mike’s has perfected the thickness compared to the ratio of toppings. Bone-in chicken wings with choice of four new sauces: Frank’s RedHot Buffalo, Frank’s Stingin’ Honey Garlic, Frank’s RedHot Sweet Chili, and KC Masterpiece Original Barbecue. My favorite is the Frank’s Stingin’ Honey Garlic! It is sweet, garlicky, and balances well with the chicken wings. The sweetness also balances with a savory pizza like the Snowy Alps! Frank’s RedHot Sweet Chili tastes exactly like the sweet chili sauce you would get with lumpia or eggrolls. The outer crispiness of the chicken wings matches perfectly with it. Frank’s RedHot Buffalo is exactly how a buffalo wing should taste like. The initial inhale of vinegary aroma and the spiciness of the sauce is the perfect experience. KC Masterpiece Original Barbecue is an old faithful favorite because everyone loves barbecue! It has a nice balance of smoky and sweetness. Craving dessert? Chocolate Chip Pizza Cookie is the way to go. It reminds me of the Tollhouse Cookie Bars my mom used to make when I was little. Tastes like homemade with the buttery richness, brown sugar sweetness, and warm, gooey chocolate chips.More

They put out a ice pizza and a killer lunch buffet for $7.99. The salad bar is terrific and I wish my willpower would close its eyes to the pizza choices. When I break down I enjoy the Hawaiian style, the Italian sausage, and some...of the other combos pizzas. I never know when to stop so I gain weight after the frenzy. Nice friendly staff, clean and pleasant for a lunch or dinner.More

Good eats for a fast food business. Pizza is served hot and yummy. It is a high in price but once you taste the food it is worth it.

I love how generous they are with toppings. I prefer wood fired pizza but this crust is good. Watch for Groupon deals to save money as they are quite expensive.

Got pizza here once and wasn't too thrilled. Decided to give it another chance since it's near where I live. Again the pizza was sub-par so I won't be going back.

Cheap eats with sneeze guards. If you are really hungry and really aren't too picky about quality, this is probably the place.
