On family trips we try to eat somewhere local instead of the chain places. This nice place had good ratings so we swung in for a late lunch. We were greeted as soon as we entered and found the dining room to be nice and...roomy. The menu had a nice variety and after placing our orders the wait time for our meals was fairly short. Our waitress was pleasant and informative about some of the area activities. If we're back through the area I'd be happy to stop back.More

I grew up here and hung out at the old location back in the mid 70's. This has always been my place to eat pizza, even after moving south, I have to get my fix. We came in on Sunday Jan. 26 with my grown...boys and we were more than impressed. We always get the clown and the wonderful house salads, but we had heard from TA that the wings were to die for. We ordered the hot wings, and they were sauced properly, and the skin was crispy! NO rubber skin like most places in my area serve. We just had wings at Ole 102 Tap house, run by 12 West (fine dining) in Farmington, and they were terrible. These were almost perfect. The right amount of heat..guessing Franks hot sauce...only con was it was a bit salty....using unsalted butter with the Franks would make it perfect. And as usual, the pizza was great and so were the salads. All of us couldn't stop eating. Took the rest home and enjoyed it again....our young waitress was so sweet and bubbly, and kept our glasses full, and the table cleared. Great staff! I love this place....to be honest, we have not tried anything else here, so can't comment on the rest of the food....More

I have been dining at Pogolinos for over 25 years, and it is the best place in De Soto to gather with friends and family to enjoy a casual dinner or fantastic pizza! Locally family-owned and dedicated to making every visit a pleasure are two...other reasons to patronize the business and support small town america! Thank you to Pogolinos and the entire Walker family for keeping a decent restaurant in our small town.More

Had an excellent experience with our family. Pizza was very good, spaghetti portion was huge, overall excellent experience. Would recommend if you are in the area.

We ordered a sandwich and pasta from this restaurant and not only was the pick up time fast, the food was fresh, tasted great and was exactly what we wanted. The staff was extremely friendly as well. We will defiantly be going back.

They have the best Buffalo chicken pizza I’ve had and their Clown Pixza is really good too! A local favorite!

We were in there about 4:00 PM, there was only 3 other people in there. I had to get up & ask the man at the counter to get someone to wait on us. Food was just average. When we were finished eating the waitress...disappeared, we waited about 15 minutes or so, I complained to the manager & he had a attitude & said be patient.More

Restaurant is clean and in the small downtown area of DeSoto, MO. Staff is friendly but are not uniformed which makes it hard to tell who is working or visiting for dinner. Plenty of parking and was packed at 5pm on a Saturday. They have...limited beer offerings either bottle or draft and a few “red or white” selections of wine(waitress did not know what kind) Prices are cheap but you get what you pay for. Both the lasagna and spaghetti very short on meat sauce and it was more noodles than anything. The pizza on the other hand was above average and better than any other offerings in this small town. Would recommend but don’t look for outstanding food just filling and acceptable.More
