“Disappointed and last visit. I'll go where dine in guest are treated like customers.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

We have been coming to the island for 37 years. Our kids always want to make this the first trip to eat when we get here.... Until today. This is the second night we have stopped by for pizza since they had a 45 minute wait the first night. Tonight a 50 Mount wait. Not bad for most places but when we asked why cause there is hardly anyone here, we were told, take our is first priority! Thanks for taking such good care of your dine in guest.

I would NOT recommend this place unless you are calling for take out. And we used to enjoy this place for 25 years that they have been in business. This was our last stop to Famous Pizza.....

“Used to be better”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

We have been coming to Chincoteague for years. I used to look forward to getting a carryout pizza from Famous during our trip, or grabbing a delicious slice to take to the beach. I remember it being mouthwatering good! We talked it up to our friends and family who have come down to stay with us over the years only to be embarrassed at the dinner table. The past two years it has been lacking. The pizza is not the same. Not sure if they changed their recipe or ingredients, but it was barely edible. Very bland and the quality of cheese was not the same. It's a shame. We will not be ordering from here for our next trip. The pizza down the street from Maria's was cheaper and actually tasted a little better this time. But Famous was the best I have had years ago. Bring it back!

“Just a average pizza place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

The pizza was just average fair, nothing to write home about. Good value average food. I thought the pizza lacked flavor, saucewas plane and pep was not sharp. Still good value for the money, if you are interested in feeding a large family.

large variety of items to pick from. Had the clam strip dinner and crab cake dinner. Very tasty! Very family friendly and prices are reasonable.

Great restaurant for a sub or Italian meal. We will come here again the next trip. Everything is also very clean!
