“Too Much Hype”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

I'll start off by saying I am not the biggest pizza fan myself but I like to try it at different places when I can. I will say that compared to some other places, the pizza portions here are huge! However I am not a fan of their pizza sauce, it is very acidic and almost every time I eat a piece of pizza from here I feel sick after. It's very overrated and a large pizza here is very expensive. Best thing here are the Benny's cheese sticks but they often undercook them, creating a big doughy mess.

“Biggest and Better than all the rest!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

This Pizza by the slice or by the pie is HUGE. It is an absolutely delicious PIZZA. IT is not New York but it has its own incredible crust sauce and flavor. It is shocking that a pizza this good is in a small college town. The restaurant is rustic w very limited seating but don't judge the pizza by its decor. The taste is amazing and the wait is minimal.

“GIANT Pizza with GIANT Flavor - NOM NOM NOM”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

For only 5 bucks you get a GINORMOUS slice of awesome pizza to please your mouth and stomach!!!

The slice is so LARGE they serve it on two paper plates!!!

A whole pizza is so GINORMOUS they have to tip the box sideways to get it out the door!!!

Usually pizza places just have good toppings and the crust is just okay. Not here - the crust is AMAZING!!!

Come for the novelty of GINORMOUS pizza, keep coming back for the delicious-tasting pizza!!!

Sorry for all the exclamation points. I don't mean to shout. This is just REALLY great pizza!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

“Can't beat their giant slice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

Yes, the pizza is enormous....but its actually well executed. Their sauce is not too sweet and they use just the right amount and the dough is the perfect thickness to prevent sogginess. Love it!

“Excellent Pizza - that makes a statement!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013

Size Matters. I love Benny's (as we call it). The quality of the pizza is outstanding and its just so much fun to face such a big pie or slice. The hours are perfect for the night time Hokie post pub time prowler, the after game tailgater, or any other time. Their delivery crew is great - what else is there to say. PS - Pepperoni is the regular order from me. It was the centerpiece to our Superbowl party this year.
