“Come Early during Ski Season”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

Based on TA reviews, we had dinner here after skiiing day before Thanksgiving. Got a table right away at 5:45, but by 6:15 there was a line, so get there early. But it's worth the wait if you have to wait. We had Greek Salad and the Greek Pizza (wow, great!). Had the hand-folded crust (not the wheat) and it was very light, not heavy. Kids loved dipping it in the honey as dessert. Kids had half cheese and half sausage...there is a nice smokey taste to the sausage. We took one left-over piece home, but it was eaten before we went to bed.

The dollar bills are really ALL over the place....almost too much, but it was fun to see what many of them had to say. Our service was good and also met the owner (from the video on their website). Kids are already planning their return for next year.

Not cheap, but not outrageous either, for ski season. Like someone else said, don't come here for the atmosphere--come here for the pizza!

Thanks for stopping in! Nothing hits the spot quite like some pizza after a long day on the slopes. And did you get a chance to add a dollar bill to the wall? We'll look out for it! We enjoyed hosting you and your family last week, and can't wait to welcome you again next year. Until then, take care.

Best regards,

Jeff Davidson, Owner

“Best Pizza in Grand County”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

A fun place with more than $30,000 in dollar bills that people have personalized stapled on the ceilings and walls. Great pizza and honey to finish off the crust with!

Thanks for singing our praises on TripAdvisor. Few things are more flattering than hearing that our pizza is the best in the area. Adding some honey to the crust makes all the difference!

Did you leave your mark on the dollar bill wall? If so, we'll look for it!

We can't wait to welcome you back. Thanks again, and take care!

Cheers,

“Nice Dining but below average Pizza”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

I am a pizza snob...wherever we go I like to try the local establishments. This place won't rank up there as too memorable for me. I saw all the reviews and it had a line out the door so maybe my expectations were too high but in the end it was just ok...First, I will say our server was great, the decor and dining had a fun atmosphere but after that it was just so-so. I'm not even sure how to describe the pizza as it definitely not a NY Style but more of a take and bake type that was very crusty....to us it was just meh...could take it or leave it. We also had the antipasto which was a nice large portion for the family but again, I like to have alot more meat and cheese when ordering this style of salad.
So for us, the next time we are in Winter Park, I doubt we will return but like I said, I critique pizza alot harder than most but for the local ski crowd it is probably just fine.

“Must visit if your in Winter PArk”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

Great Pizza, many menu choices. It's a must see in Winter Park. Great for families with children and large groups. Don't expect fancy fine dining, it's not! But you will love the inside.....leave your mark at Hernandos by decorating a dollar bill to hang on the wall. My children have left many over the last 20 years! Prices are reasonable. Always busy so get there early after a long day of skiing. Outdoor seating in the summer.

“Family Favorite for Years”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

Hernando's has been in Winter Park for ages and has consistently been one of our family favorites. We have frequented it in all seasons and the pizza (the supreme is delicious), pasta and salads are excellent and the prices are a good value particularly for a resort area. If you hit it during the ski season be aware of the early rush and wait times. If it is crowded and you are staying in the area you may want to opt for take out which we have done many times. Dining in, your kids will want to color a dollar bill and hang it on the wall to see again on future visits. All in all, a fun place with great service, fine food and affordable prices.
