“Tasted as Amazing as it Looked ...”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

And yes, I might have just been walking by and peeked in the front window to see what all the noise and fuss was about. Apparently, the fuss starts with $4.00 for a LARGE, cheesy, greasy, NY-style slice of hot gooey goodness. Perfectly oiled, exquisitely based, and the vibe/atmosphere of Upper Crust matched the food perfectly. Loved the decor, the music, and the view of Grant St. hustle and bustle. Probably one of my favorite little Tucson spots for a relaxing atmosphere and a quick, tasty, inexpensive slice of pizza.

“made it right!”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

I often pick up a slice at this little hole in the wall as they have the best chewy/crispy great crust and delicious pizza! The staff is often a bit eccentric/not too overly friendly, but they get the job done. Today had a long wait for a couple of slices but the woman making the pizzas made it right with giving me a couple of extra slices to make up for a long wait. This type of customer service really makes you want to keep coming back when they do something that makes the customer feel cared for and not just hashing out pizzas without care.
Again, pizza so good!

“Upper Crust is perfect for take out”
Reviewed August 18, 2012

This is delicious pizza with perfect chewy crust-- my favorite in Tucson. The restaurant itself is tiny and HOT so if you plan to eat-in, plan for the winter. Great for take-out or delivery though!

“Biggest slice I've ever eaten”
Reviewed April 20, 2012

I was in the mood for a light meal. I ordered a jumbo slice not thinking that there might a reason it is called jumbo. It was about the size of 2.5 normal slices. Each bite was a delight.

“I'm still full!”
Reviewed April 17, 2011

Upper Crust is a great Tucson gem for a pizza. I was in for the lunch special which is $3.50 for a slice the size of your face and a drink. This restaurant doesn't pretend to be anything it isn't . There are maybe 5 tables in the entire place and you order at the register. That said though, the pizza is top notch. The owner, Dan, was there the day I was making pies and working the register. This place is well worth your time if you are looking for some great eats!
