“Great Pizza, atmosphere and hipster cool”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

People have been eating great pizza here for many years - kids can still watch the pizza being made through the windows and the chef still flings dough at the kids while they watch. Pizza is truly first class - borderline gourmet. Thin crusts, slightly burnished on bottom - slightly spicy red sauce pizza and sinful garlic butter white sauce ones too. The WOW has crab meat, artichoke hearts, feta, roasted garlic and we usually add the roasted asparagus too on to the white sauce foundation. The Special and Board pizzas are really good too. Place rocks crowded on Friday and Saturday nights especially in football season. Service is good and capable - decor is kitschy with the artwork on all the pizza boxes lining the walls. Cash only - don't be surprised!

“best pizza around”
Reviewed June 10, 2012

If you're looking for thin crust pizza that's not all junked up w/greasy canned toppings, then you'll be in heaven here!! Get "the board", it's the best one!!

“The BEST pizza I have ever eaten hands down! Nothing compares”
Reviewed January 20, 2012

You will love this pizza!
The choices are immense... you will find something you like. The best standard, red sauce pizza there is plus olive oil sauced pizza with lots of garlic. The red sauce and the crust has this hint of garlic that is perfect. The cheese is chewy and delicious. The pizza is thin, which I prefer. This is no Chicago-type pizza.
I can't say enough about Pizza Man. Been going since I was a child when the place was on E. Boston St. in Covington. Back then and now, you can catch the owner tossing the pizza dough in the window of the kitchen. And if you're lucky, you will catch him play "Puff the Magic Dragon" on the jukebox.
Don't miss this place. Give it a try at your earliest convenience! It's an institution.
