I'm constantly on the hunt for pizza that reminds me of The Miami Valley. If you like "cracker crust" style pizza that's cut in squares...this is the place for you. Every time I see "thin crust" I have visions of Casano's & Marion's...only to find out I'm eating a NY slice...NO LONGER A PROBLEM! Shaner's is a nice little place.... More

They serve a really great thin and crispy crust pizza. We did not know where to go and read the reviews online. They were "right on". It was worth the trip. Great food at a reasonable price.

Yes the pizza here is the best anywhere. The other dishes are pretty good too. Not a fancy place, but the service is excellent and friendly coupled with quality inexpensive food what more do you want of a diner/restaurant. Added to the above is the presence of the great man himself making every one feel welcome.

We visited Shaner's for pizza. We have been searching for a good thin crust pizza, similar to Imo's Pizza in St. Louis. We found it!!!! They had a great thin crust, quality toppings, good sauce & cheese. Not the same cheese as St. Louis, but still good. We plan to return in the near future. I met Mr. Shaner. Nice... More

Having read a few mixed reviews decided to go here as it was close to where we were staying as it was raining. We were a little apprehensive, the beer selection was not great but the pizzas were lush.
