Pizza 51 is housed inside an old converted filling station. Seating is available inside and outside, and the pizza is quite good. It's a popular spot, though, and inside can get a bit noisy if you mind that. Outside is more relaxing and less frenetic.

This is a great place to have a huge slice of pizza, one slice covers your plate. I love the meat lovers (cowtown) crust is thin, sauce is great, great selection of toppings. Staff is always friendly, service is great, awesome setting in an old gas station. We drive 30 miles each way to enjoy this Pizza, it's well worth... More

We were just looking for some place to eat near the plaza and found this. Reminded us of a place for college students. Staff was friendly and the pizza was great. Thin crust that tasted great. Not over cooked. We had the 14" cowboy pizza and will get it again.

Food: The pizza was fresh and delicious ... The pizza slices were huge. One slice will cover an entire plate. I ordered a side salad and the portion was generous, it had white cheese, olives, onions, mushrooms and your choice of dressing ... Pizza is not my favorite but I do love thin crust pizza's and would definitely come back... More

This restaurant is located in an old out of business gas station. But don't let that fool you. The Pizza is outstanding! They sell it by the slice and the slice is HUGE. They have a wooden Pizza slice at the register on a Pizza pan to show the size. Be sure to take their wooden Pizza slice to the... More

A pretty cool environment here plus extremely friendly service. Located in the heart of the University of Missouri at Kansas City campus. I would assume during regular session that parking could be a pain or that it would be hectic when filled with students. Pizza is good, not great. Slices are huge. I can eat and still should have only... More

The thin crust pizza slices - the slices themselves cut into smaller squares for easier eating - provide crispy, flakey crust that is topped traditional pizza toppings. This is definitely a no frills type of place -- in fact it's situated in an old gas station -- but Pizza 51 does thin crust pizza quite well. In terms of pizza... More

The sevice was very poor. Went for a quick slice and waited over 15 minutes for a one slice of cheese pizza. No one followed up with the status of my order. I would not recommend this place if you want a quick bite. Also the outdoor seating is next to a sewer, which is not very appetizing .

Good for families. They give the kids a wad of dough to play with. We go a couple of times a year. Nothing fancy - close to UMKC campus.
