This is a joint in Lincoln that is talked about quite a bit. I went in having high expectations. Unfortunately, it didn't come close. First, I am never a huge fan of a place that requires explanation on how to order. Do you stand to order? Is there servers? You will stand in line here with a menu in hand... More

Our daughter goes to school in Lincoln and pushes for Yiayia's as a treat each time we're there. Not only do the have GLUTEN free, they also serve a very wide variety of pizzas and pizza by the slice! We haven't tried one we didn't like. Note: you do have to clear your own dishes and serve your own table,... More

Love the pizza they serve. You can order from a menu or create your own pizza. By the huge slice. They are skimpy with toppings, so I always ask for double everything. Fun atmosphere

Came through Lincoln on the way back home and was pleasantly surprised by the nightlife in this adorable miniature big city. Looked around a few blocks on O st. for something authentic and this is where we ended up. The pizza was fantastic. Those girls in the kitchen nailed it. The bartender sucked, unfortunately, because the beer selection happens to... More

With such a wide selection of pizzas and beers available, it's hard to not find something to love! It's great going in and trying something new all the time! A wonderful patio up front on nice days, and relaxing environment inside. Grab a seat if you can find one, worth the wait!

I'm a Chicago girl. My blood is 75% pizza (and 25% hot dogs). I *love* YiaYia's pizza. I like the crust. I love the topping list. I love that they have vegan cheese as an option if you have lactose intolerant or vegan friends. And holy moly do I love YiaYia's beer list. Whenever I go down to Lincoln to... More

This pizza spot is more what I would expect to see in Portland Oregon where I am from. It is very "funky" décor and has an "earthy" down to earth feel. The service is order at the counter and wait for your name to be called. There are numerous varieties of pizza to choose from or build your own. The... More

What a wonderful place! With vintage and brick surroundings, you can't help but feel comfortable. They have a wonderful selection of pizzas, with some unusual toppings (potato and chicken? The Atlantic pizzs. Yum). They also have an extensive beer selection, as well as vegetarian meal selections. Yia Yia's is a casual pizza restaurant downtown Lincoln and it's THE place for... More

Very unique pizza parlor. Beers from all over the world. They have specialty pizzas, but you can create your own. They have a huge list of toppings. Also you can do the same thing with a salad. Very unusual atmosphere. Everyone should give it a try. One of my favorites.
