“My friend John”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

I love Pizza John! I have known Pizza John for years and enjoyed many happy nights at his restaurant. His bright cheerful personality have always put a smile on my face, and the pizza was great. My daughter absolutely fell in love with his place. I am sorry to report that the restaurant is temporarily closed and that Pizza John is struggling with a as yet undisclosed but very serious illness in the hospital in San Jose. Please join us in praying for his recovery and speed return. He has always been a bright spot here in El Castillo. My name Walter and I operate the Howlers Bar and Grille road from him. I will try to keep his many friends posted on his progress via sites like this. Your prayers are appreciated.
