Mistake #1 - Going to any local eatery when Paul McCartney is playing nearby that evening. Most places had long lines which we equated to decent food. Mistake #2 - Going to this particular establishment. Unfortunately, the long line wasn't because of good food. The...line was long due to the inane ordering process. The same gentleman would take an order or two, pay him and then he got involved with something else while other customers waited to order. Mistake #3 - Ordering the pizza at this "Pizza House." This was absolutely the worst pizza I have ever had. I've gotten better pizza at Little Caesars, a long time ago. It was dry, overcooked, had very little cheese, and had an odd taste. Unfortunately, we were hungry, in a pinch, and after waiting 45 minutes, short on time. I cannot comment on the other food served at this place but, as I look back, most people had ordered something other than pizza. Lesson learned.More

It took 2 1/2 hours for my food to arrive, cold. The first time I called to check on the order I was told there was a problem with the online ordering system and it would be leaving in 10 min. An hour later I...called back and was told that because I lived outside of the University area I should expect a delay. I was not offered a discount or any type of refund on the $60 I dropped. I will never patronize this place again and I will be sure that my company department stops using them for our functions as well. Awful experience, subpar food, terrible customer service.More

Pizza wasn't great nor bad, not "NY" pizza if that's what you are hoping for. $5 for 2 slices seemed pricey enough for what I got to not go back. Convenient though if you are visiting the university or Marshal Street but not some place...I recommend to make sure you try.More

Recently visited and sorry, but no. There are other options. I am puzzled on how there are good reviews. When you walk in the place it is so dark and uninviting. Everything is so old and worn down. Ok..so looks can be deceiving. Walk up...to the counter. It was late on a Sunday before school started, so we were the only ones ordering. We were greeted by a guy who was certainly not dressed to be at a food establishment. Tank top (not a restaurant one), knife on the belt and 1000 keys on the belt as well. Ok..looks can be deceiving.. We ordered and while waiting you could see into the kitchen and wow..what a mess. While watching the sandwiches being made, I thought gloves were mandatory in food service? Not here. I appreciate that he put a piece of silver foil down on the dirty counter. If you were lucky enough a homeless guy came in every few minutes and asked you what you ordered. Food came and what a mess. A wrap was literally falling apart. I think it was stale. Clearly not very fresh. When i opened it up, the wrap was not wrapped. Just put together by someone who had no idea how to do a wrap. The amount of chicken and other items was so minimal you were just eating a stale wrap. Certainly not worth the $9!!! Once again, I am baffled by the good reviews. I am pretty lenient in my reviews, but this is one of the worst places I have been at. Prayed all night that I didn't get sick!!More

I followed a local to this place as I really didn’t know what I wanted as far as pizza, wings or Greek food. I opted for the “Acropolis Special” and it was excellent. They also had a thing called “Cajun wings” which were also very...good. It was a great little place that does everything by scratch. There is something for anyone who is hungry to include subs, gyros and pasta.More

Ordered Pizza. Was supposed to be delivered within an hour. Took them two+ hours. Pizza and wings were cold. Called back (for a third time) and was hung up on. Called again the next day, and was offered 12% reimbursement of the $32 dollars my...order cost.More

After a long trip for another time we have a delicious Steak Pizza in Acropolis. As the last ten years I always stop and have my Steak Pizza at my favorite restaurant. Dont forget to try the Chicken Wings with Cajun.

My son and I were starving after the Orange Vs. Wake Forest game and walked along the busy food eats street and choose Acropolis Pizza House. We were not disappointed with their large (almost too large) Buffalo Chicken Pizza BBQ option and loved it @...$18.50 + tax. My son ordered the Jalapeno Poppers, which were indeed spicy $5.95 + tax. It probably would have been better to order a two liter bottle of pop/soda for $3.25 + tax; but I prefer diet cola/soda so we passed on that. Be prepared for a wait after the game; but it is worth it!More

If you are not getting messy you are not eating Acropolis pizza, the kind you take a slice fold it in half and go at it as the grease rolls down your hand! Best pizza in Syracuse!

There were 7 in our group including kids and a vegetarian. The menu was great. Food reasonably priced. Our group ordered the souvlaki, and a couple gyros. Both were Excellent! The cheese pizza was a hit, and the kids loved it. The eggplant fries are...AMAZING, do not miss these melt-in-your-mouth rarities! The fish sandwich was fresh and flaky. We ordered wings 3 ways, Cajun, honey barbeque, and garlic Parmesan. Everyone in our group (except the vegetarian) gave thumbs up on all. We brought our own waters and the staff didn't mind. Really good food. Definitely will return.More

It was busy on game day, and this was a very popular spot for quick grub. Our party had pizza and gyros. The pizza was below average--cheap cheese pizza of the mini-mart fashion, good for college budgets. The gyros were good, not spectacular in any...sense, just average in quality. Prices around 7-8 bucks for gyros, 5.75 for falafel, and 2.50 per slice of pizza. This cannot be the best in Syracuse. Cheap college eats, get what you pay for.More

Acropolis Pizza has been a mainstay on the Syracuse University campus. I was surprised to see that it was still there and just as popular eating hole as it was back when I was a student. We ordered wings and fries and it was very...good. Lots of loud, boisterous spirited people were present which brought back great memories. Not the best place for conversation though because of this. One of the guys at the counter was clearly cranky but it was packed and as I mentioned loud so it was understandable. Your visit to Syracuse will not be complete without stopping here.More

Ate here before a football game as other places were pack. This one had a lot of seating. We ordered a bacon cheeseburger pizza. It was not thin crust and not Chicago style. It was in the middle, similar to Dominos. The toppings were good...but the crust was too bready. I also ordered a chicken roll. It never came. When I asked about it, the cashier started asking the chef where it was and he asked her if she had made it. She yelled at him it is his job to make it. She then stormed off and we never received the chicken roll. Did receive a refund for it with no apology. Not sure I will return.More
