“Best Pizza In Madison - absolutely”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

If you like pizza, and if you like to find specialty pizza, you should go to the Glass Nickel. There are many locations, but I go to the one on Atwood Avenue. While the service isn't always speedy (they're training new lunch crew), the food is almost always good. They have a special pizza every 2 months, and it's always been good. The Fetalicious is the best pizza every, and it's even meat-free, for those looking. Don't look past the salads and sandwiches, all are great options.
If you're local to a Glass Nickel, sign up for Pizza Mail - I have a 30% off Boss Hog the other day, and it was great!

“Great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2013

I have never actually gone physically to their location, but my company I work for commonly orders from them. This is a great pizza I especially love the feta pizza they make, never tasted such a good pizza outside of Chicago and theirs is a definite winner!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013 via mobile

Stopped for an overnight in Madison & ordered cheese curds, cheese bread & bacon cheeseburger pizza for carry out. Delicious!!! Kids loved it, grown ups too. Lots of yummy cheese, light sauce- perfect! Love the Priuses used for deliveries!

“Best pizza in Madison”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013

I read a review saying its as good as little ceasers or Pizza Hut. It's far better than either of those, absolutely no comparison. It's not like Chicago or New York, but its as good as it gets inMadison.

“Great dough”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

They make great, diverse pizzas - but for a picky family you can buy their raw dough at a reasonable price and make your own at home. Make sure you have the oven at 500 degrees - it makes a difference in the cooking!
