Had pizza here a few times pre-pandemic, it was great! Loved the GREEK, tons of toppings. Artichoke hearts....well they were quartered, many quarters scattered about the pizza. The cheese, giant chunks everywhere. Fast forward post shutdown. Toppings are scarce! Artichoke leaves (not quarters) spareingly scattered,...nearly non existent. If I were to venture a guess.....less than 1 whole heart on the entire pie. Pizza is half off on Friday nights. The cashier told me this Iike it was something. It was a great deal, but much less so now. I asked if the toppings were 1/2 off as well. He looked in the box and replied that they "just put extra cheese on it" I've been there 3 times post shutdown same lack of toppings each time. Don't get me wrong the pies are still good, maybe I was just spoiled by my pre-pandemic experience. I used to rave about the pizza there and steer everyone I could to help support the business, I can no longer do that in good conscience. Believe me when I say, I talk to A LOT of people who are passing thru town looking for a good meal. I can, and still do, rave about DREEZ though (that's the restaurant across the street, same ownership)! Sorry J.C.... I hope you can afford to bring the toppings back some day. Until then, not sure I'll be back. T.j.More

Bartender/Manager Daniel made us feel at home. Provided samples of draft beers we had never tried and told us about special deals. The prices were very reasonable and pizza was great. Pizza by-the-slice was a particularly good deal - the"slice' was actually 1/4 of a...medium pizza which they cut in half for us and allowed different toppings on the two portions! Beers ordered with the slice were discounted by $1.00 each! We ate on the bar side of the operation (which also includes a small bowling alley and a Cold Stone ice cream shop!). It has the feel of a neighborhood bar with lots of happy local customers. Not a "Fancy Place" but was our favorite restaurant on our journey.More

Dear Travelers, Avoid the Blind Onion. Don't be fooled by its catchy name. We just visited the BO after ignoring the last review about service and now regret it. We think that review was honest, something that appears to be missing in the others. You...have to wonder about how wrote them. This place is filthy, noisy, disorganized: a real candidate for a management/health department intervention. The over-tasked hostess/cashier/ phone receptionist/drink server was really was not well trained or simply not ready to multi-task. The employees in the kitchen were like the Keystone cops, bouncing off of each other. In the end, the food is unexceptional at best, the value poor, and I have to believe, a reflection of the overall quality of the business. We ordered a pizza and salads. 30 minutes later they arrived at the table — the pizza missing a slice! The server passed it to us with the qualification that a slice was dropped on the floor and, I believe, an implicit hope that we will just take it and give them a pass this time. We did not! The replacement pizza arrived about 25 minutes later and we left with a bad taste in our mouth. If the BO is Elko's best pizza, I think this city needs to rethink its standards for quality control.More

I normally only leave positive reviews, but today I am just outraged at the horrible service, product and price we paid. This place is a rip off ! First off we ordered one topping pizza and some cheese chips. What I got was our one...topping pizza and a slice of French bread with cheese for $35. We called in our order they said 20 min. When we showed up to pick up our order they had not even began to make our stuff yet, since we were on a time limit i went to cancel they said we will bring it to us. I said ok ...I was good with that until they delievered my order and it wasn't even what I paid for. When I called the guy on the phone was rude wouldnt confirm what i paid for and told me " We are super busy atleast you got your pizza" Horrible Horrible Horrible! So disappointed in this place. Lost any future business we might of done with them . Buyers BEWARE!!!!!More

We have three Blind Onion Pizza shops in Vancouver, but the ORIGINAL is located in Elko, Nevada. This is a modest little place just south of downtown (not far from The Star) that serves pizza, beer and also ice cream. Pizza is available by the...slice. I had two slices and a large beer for around $10, so very reasonable. The crust is fresh, light and crisp. Toppings are ample. Cheeses and sauce do not overpower the goodness. Friendly service. Eat in or take out.More

We had a great experience at the Blind Onion in Reno, so we assumed the Elko Blind Onion would be as good. Unfortunately, the ambiance leaves a lot to be desired. The pizza (carnivore) was just okay. We liked the crust, but there wasn’t anything...special about the rest. Took 10 minutes longer than quoted and the staff was invisible.More

Little dingy, little run down but the pizza is really, really good. The crust is definitely the highlight, and they leave honey on the tables for you to dip it in. Good stuff. Staff is always very friendly and accommodating. Plus, you can get Cold...Stone ice cream right there too. Great placeMore

Love, love, love the Blind Onion pizza crust. Just a little sweet which complements the tangy toppings that I love. Doesn't hurt that Coldstone Creamery is in the same location. We have never had a bad experience here.

Blind Onion was a pleasant surprise when then first came to town. They have a unique style all their own, and it shows in their pizzas! The Greek Pizza at Blind Onion is in my Top 3 of all-time favorite pizzas. They also have a...lot of excellent other items that complement the pizza (may I suggest a Greek salad, as well?) The customer service has always been good, and they offer a gluten-free pizza as well.More

Blind Onion is probably one of the best for pizza in town. Hot, fresh, and made to order. We sat at a long table in the middle of the restaurant and every time someone walked by it felt as if the floor was going to...give in, very distracting for our semi-informal business meeting. Alot of bumps along the way, kids playing etc. For a smaller group sit along the walls. Coldstone is probably the highlight and is outstanding. The bar has Stella on tap and a few others and service is prompt and friendly. Overall not a bad place but a change with the seating would be nice.More

This pizzeria share space with a Bowling alley and a Coldstone IceCream counter so there is a lot of foot traffic around you as you eat. The Menu is big and has some unique varieties. We had a Greek pizza that was suppose to come...with sundries tomatoes but they put on fresh for some reason. It was a Friday night but they close early, around 9, so check before you head there.More

This is one of the best pizza places in town. Service was good; our order was misread and one of the pizzas had to be remade. The staff was very courteous. Love that you get both ranch and honey with the pizza.
