I feel as if they tossed my party in the corner and forgot about us. Food was good, but service wasn't, and it was rather expensive.

A delicious deep dish pizza was delivered to our hotel at exactly the time we requested by a professional and courteous driver. Everything about this experience was perfect, but the review is missing the 5th star due to the somewhat confusing menu and the awkward ordering protocol. I think there are two different pizza shops in the same building, and... More

A more than fair proportion of our town has a strong affinity for Tobin's, and within that sect there exists a schism as to which of their distinct styles of pizza offerings is supreme: Tobin's recipe pizza, or Michaleo's pizza recipe? I'm more of a Michaleo's fan, with its high level of cheesiness and garlic - if you are not... More

The pizza here is amazing. Everything about it is great. The garlic bread was pretty good too. The service was nice and friendly and the atmosphere was pretty cool. Doesn't look like much from the outside, but the pizza is definitely worth a stop into the place.

If you are looking for a local pizza place look no further Tobin's has the BEST PIZZA in Bloomington -Normal. They also have much more on the menu also.The owners are local and care about our community!

We ate Tobin's Sunday and we are always happy with their food. It's the best pizza place in the Twin Cities for our money. The only thing that needs to improve is their delivery ordering. While most pizza places will keep your information on file and can look you up via your telephone number, Tobin's does not. Every time you... More

My wife and I had recently moved to the Bloomington/Normal area, and everyone told us we HAD to try Tobin's Pizza. One night we decided to get a carry-out pizza from there to see if it was as succulent as our friends described. It was a delicious thin-crust pizza! There was good flavor and adequate toppings for the size. While... More

We called this a greasy round thing, although its not really greasy. We love the thin crust and the toppings are great, the cheese seems fresh. I would never have tried it except for pizza, but the BBQ sauce they have really does make the pizza even better. They do sell other foods but why go to a pizza place... More

Blo/No, as we call the Bloomington/Normal area, is vast wasteland for food. Seriously, the food in Central Illinois period is pretty terrible. For a college town, and a home to so many corporate people, you get very options outside of the chains. Itallian inspired cuisine is truly the most difficult for places across central Illinois to get right. The few... More

Visited after suggestion by a student of mine. He and Tobin's get an A. Friendly service. It was busy the night we visited but worth the wait.
