“Great pizza”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

Great pizza of all kinds. Better to take out for me. Just another pizza joint.
Will probably get pizza here again at some point. Not handy for me.

“Bloomington-Normal's best pizza”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

Both the thin crust and the deep dish are the BEST ever! Crust is cooked to perfection and cheese and toppings are in the correct proportions. Ive had pizza everywhere and love Tobin's the most.
Mama Theresa's deep dish has chopped tomatoes - extra tasty. A bit pricy with Bloomington's outrageous food tax! but so worth the splurge.

The other menu items are just so-so. Get the pizza!

“My bias”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

I start by telling you that I worked for Jim Tobin back in the 60s when I was a college student across the street from my university. He had and arguably the best pizza in town. Jim passed last year, but sold Tobins to a good person who has kept his recipes going. I must say that the "new" Tobins offers another style pizza as well. Always fresh, always great. When in Bloomington, go to Tobins.

We lived in Bloomington Normal in the late 1990s and I will NEVER forget Tobin's Pizza. We measure every pizza place we dine with the greasy goodness.

“Still awesome!”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

In town for homecoming, my sister and I knew we had to go there. The pizza was delicious! We ordered carry-out and it was prepared quickly and ready by the time we got there. Awesome!
