We ordered two pizzas, one gluten-free and one regular. They were both fantastic. They were done on time. The service was very friendly. This is a take-out only place.

We have been Turnabout Pizza customers for over 40 years. The pizza is excellent and un-changed from the beginning. They provide pick up or delivery, but no sitdown, except outside on picnic benches. They also serve sandwiches. You can pick up beverages from their cooler when you stop in to pick up your order.

The Garlic Butter Fries are to die for, they also have great gyros and hot dogs. Definitely hangover food, but very good.

After reading all of the rave reviews we decided to give it a try and now are feeling let down. The pizza smelled so good when it was delivered, we opened the box and were disappointed because there were WAY, WAY TOO MANY green peppers, it barely had any cheese on it and I ordered extra cheese. The flavor was... More

This is a very old fashioned pizza joint, but with a few twists. the curl the edges of the pizza crust in a very unusual manner, but the sauce and fresh ingrediants make the difference. The ovens of 50+ years old but turn out awesome pizza.

This place has been around since the 60's and still Turns out the best pizza in The SW suburbs, They will accomodate any combination of crazy toppings, but's the crust and sauce that are the magic

they have a good pizza with a thick crust and a sweet sauce. I'm a sausage person and they have good sausage, it tends to be on the big side though.

They normally have a rolled edge on their crust but when we requested it flat, they were happy to oblige. We ordered a sausage mushroom pizza well done and it was very good. It was also ready exactly when they said it would be. Bonus--buy 20 pizzas, get one free!

Hands down the best pizza in the Suburbs. I come here every time I am home, sometimes more than once. The crust is wonderful and crunchy, the cheese is applied liberally and the sausage is high quality with fennel seeds. The place itself is takeout only, but I wouldn't have it any other way. Old-school Chicagoland feel combined with amazing... More
