We ordered a cheese pizza. It was made just the way we like it. Their food is always delicious whether you buy pizza or subs. French fries are the best

I come to pizza Johns with my family often. The pizza is very good, better than anywhere else. They are closed on Mondays. They do great business because they serve great food. I only wish they offered pizza deals.

Pizza Johns is the best pizza I’ve had in a long time! I recommend the pepperoni. The perfectly cupped circles of meat have just the right amount of grease sitting inside. Don’t dab them...just live a little! The crust is amazing too. You won’t regret...More
