“Pizza's Good, But Not the Best Ever”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

The Spouse is from this area and grew up with the Wells Brothers-style of pizza- thin crust, cut into squares. Locals rave about it, as does the Spouse. I've had much better in Chicago and NYC, and even in Texas. My kids think Pizza Hut is better. It is good, but I don't get that "wow" factor that everyone raves about. The pizza toppings are ample, but not overloaded, the cheese to sauce ratio was good. I will say the cheese bread was outstanding, with a ton of gooey mozzarella covering the tasty garlic bread.
Part of the fun of Wells Brothers is the excitement of wondering if you will make it out of the neighborhood alive. Uniformed cops with sidearms are on duty to monitor the parking lot which help your odds. The service was a little slow and the restaurant was packed, but friendly waitstaff was a plus and made for a pleasant experience. They do offer other menu items other than their pizza, including traditional Italian fare as well as fish dishes. I will go back, but I won't dream about it.

“Good taste but far from real Italian Pizza”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

Pizza's taste was good, similar (but only similar) to the real Italian Pizza.
Restaurant position is not so good, waiters are kindly and prices are in the average.
Good joice but nothing special

“Best thin-crust pizza ever”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

We ordered the thin-crust pizza with extra cheese, sausage, & mushrooms. It was
fabulous. Great wait person and great prices on drinks. This restaurant is an
institution in Racine, as it should be.

“OMG AAAAMAZING”
Reviewed June 29, 2012

This place is INCREDIBLE. The pizza there is unbelievable. Don't forget Tuesdays are $20 Tuesdays! Pizza, Garlic Bread or Fries, and a pitcher of soda or I believe a bucket of beer- Seriously, $20! Everyone who works here is friendly and treat everyone like they have known you for years, even if it is your first time there. INCREDIBLE.

Reviewed June 24, 2012

Even though it is in a bad area, the food was amazing. The pepperoni pizza was great, my italian beef sandwich was the best I ever had. I will be back
