“Used to be good.”
Reviewed November 28, 2011

This place has changed hands and they are struggling a bit. We are not impressed with the changes. Used to be our favorite pizza. We'll still wait a while to try them again, hoping they can get their act together. Hope they can make the pizza like we used to love it.

“Simply Outstanding Pizza”
Reviewed September 13, 2011

If you haven't discovered the great pizza at MM's you are in for a treat. Fresh, flavorful and quick. We have always either taken out of had delivered. Only complaint is that it is a bit pricey.

“A pizza you gotta try”
Reviewed July 21, 2010

New York style pizza is more scarce in the KC area than some people would probably like, but there are still places around that serve it up well. One of those is Mafia Mike's in Lenexa. The crust has the right thickness (thin to medium) and the right amount of chew. They clearly are using a higher gluten dough than most pizzerias around town. The sauce is superb with the right amount of seasoning (right amount of oregano and garlic). The cheese is good: not to little and not too much. I've not had a complaint about the toppings, either. Although they have tables at their Lenexa location, it is clearly more of a take-out place, and I would tend to recommend avoid eating on site as it is not really conducive to dining in. My one complaint about the pizza is how they cook it, which is with those conveyor ovens instead of a traditional deck oven. The pizzas always seem to me to need another minute or two. That comes from those conveyor ovens not being able to generate enough heat like a good traditional deck oven or wood-fired brick oven. But, overall, they fill a need for a craving for the sometimes elusive NY pizza pie that is harder to find in America's heartland. I keep going back.
