Used to go here with my parents in the 1960's. This place has the original thin crust pizza that is very hard to find anymore. The beauty of the Quonset is that they got it right when they opened decades ago and they have not monkeyed with anything since. If you want cutting edge trendy dining do us regulars a... More

Quonset pizza has been a long standing pizza place in Waukegan for a long time. It's a no frills place very casual dining. They do have a full bar and serve Italian beef sandwichs and are famous for their bombers sandwiches too.

Quonset Pizza has very tasty pizza and bomber sandwiches. The menu is very limited, which can be prohibitive if someone in your group does not want pizza.

Very nice staff, small home atmosphere and the pizza was great! The gluten free crust was the best I've had.🍕😊

Nice pizza parlor. Traditional old way of pizza. Highly recommended. The smell when you walk in is amazing. Nick at the bar was friendly and timely. Great place.

I have been going to Quonset Pizza for about 48 years now, and one thing I can count on, is that their pizza does not change! It has always been superb and I can always expect the same quality pizza every time I eat in, or take out a cheese and sausage pizza from The Quonet Hut!

We stop here once a year while visiting family. We love the sausage here. Plenty of room for large groups. Their bombers are great too. All their pizzas are thin crust, which is OK for us. I like the way they criss cross cut their pizzas. Works well for large groups. Plus you don't have a large piece to hold.
