“A Nice Place To Get A Great Pizza”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

While my family usually eats at the Aurelio’s flagship restaurant in Homewood, we sometimes find ourselves crossing just over the state line to the Munster establishment. This is a true franchise, as opposed to the many “company stores” in the chain, and although Aurelio’s desires a consistency among its many outlets, there are a couple of differences in Munster.

My family thinks the sauce and the crust are just a bit different here. The crust seems crispier, and just a little thinner. The sauce is a bit sweeter, closer to what it was in Homewood back in the sixties and seventies. (No matter what the official line from Aurelio’s about no recipe changes, the sauce tastes not the same, losing some of its delightful sweetness.)

Not only is the sauce reminiscent of the 70s, the dining room decor is also a true blast-from-the-past, as it looks as though almost nothing has been changed in forty years. A former detriment to dining, having to smell dead leaves smoldering, has been eliminated with Indiana’s recent restaurant smoking prohibition.

The service is friendly, if sometimes uneven, although it’s never prevented us from returning. Menu selections and pricing the same as other dine-in Aurelio’s locations. Overall, a nice place to eat.

“Poor and bad management”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

I would not go back due to how the staff and manager treated my family. Needless to say we never ate and walked out before we could eat. We will never go back. This applies to only the Munster Aurelios not any other Aurelios pizzerias.

“The very best pizza”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

Aurelio's pizza is consistently delicious. One bite and you will be hooked. The crust is crispy, the sauce has a unique sweet flavor and the cheese is melted to perfection. The Super Six pizza with pepperoni, ham, sausage, green pepper, onion, and mushroom is our favorite. Excellent service. We moved to Tennessee 15 years ago and every time we come back to Indiana to visit, getting pizza from Aurelio's is on the top of our to do list!

“Great pizza; best wait staff for a pizza place!”
Reviewed November 11, 2009

My sons and I love Aurelio's on Monday night. That's when Charlie, the best waitress and manager of any pizza place, takes great care of us. The pizza is great. The salads are fine. Just a nice pizza place where we are treated like family.
