“The best pizza in town in perhaps the oldest venue here.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2012

Matthews is off the main track, in Eastern Baltimore, so you have to make it your goal. It's small, but friendly, a real mix of people local and from far neighborhoods, all there because Matthews makes a thick and crispy crust with fresh ingrediants on the top (they'll let you ask for custom made) and absolutely made to order at the time, hot out of the oven in a personal size, but a generous one. It is the perfect place to hang out if you get there in time for a table, but it has a small bar to wait in, sort of like a dungeon though. It's great for take out for parties, which we've done a lot, and everyone loves having his/her own pizza with that incredible crust. But being there is part of the joy of Matthew's, just looking at all the pictures and other stuff on the walls, seeing the tiny kitchen. Very friendly and long-standing staff.

“You gotta try it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2012 via mobile

Not NY pizza, but not deep dish. Kind of a mix. Its fluffy and crispy like NY thin, but thick and saucy like Chi town deep dish. The drinks are hard as they have a full bar and that's enought reason to go. Cocktails and pizza. Good drinks.

The pizza is marvelous. One of a kind. Get the 3 cheese with pepperoni. Its the best

Salads are decent, but they're a reall pizza parlor, not carry out.

A must try

“One of the two best Italian pizza restaurants in Baltimore!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2012

I love this little place that is always worth the wait. I have friends that talk about cutting school in the 50s & 60s to eat here.
