We were staying at the Grand Pacific Palisades Resort and Hotel and asked for a good place to get pizza. The concierge hands down recommended Knockout Pizza. He said all the locals go there and he has never heard a complaint from anyone he has suggested this place to. You can order one of their specialty pizzas with set toppings... More

Good pizza. Quick. Price can't be beat! Always go to Knockout when we want a quick, good, reasonable bite to eat. $7 for 2 slices of hot, fresh, tasty pizza and a drink!

We've eaten plenty of pizza in our day, but this is the absolute best pizza we've ever had. Whenever we're in town we eat as much as we can and have often purchased extras to freeze when we know we won't be visiting any time soon. Make sure you stop by and buy a slice & be sure to tell... More

Fun little spot on the Main Street with windows opening to outside. Fantastic pizza isn't lots of topping options. Great staff.

I like this place to get a slice of pizza and a drink. They have a good selection of pizza by the slice and seem to always pick the largest slice available. The pizza is NY style (thin crust) and is very good. It's not fancy but a welcoming ambiance and great service.

Order a large pizza with pepperoni and sausage. Had a thin crust and was greasy but so good. They made the pizza and forgot to make my calzone. No discount or anything given even though I had to go ask for my calzone and they had completely forgotten to make it. Once it arrived my family was already done with... More

this place has become a Carlsbad regular stop. with all the overpriced restaurants in the area, this place is still a bargain. there are several pizza slice options available here, and they all look good. i had the white one (forget whats on it) but its excellent.

If you're looking for fast service, good thin-crust pizza, and a modest selection of craft beers, Knockout is the place to go. I've rarely had to wait for a table for two, and the casual setting provides good people-watching if you choose a seat adjacent to the sidewalk. Although the pizza is of course available to go, I think it's... More

New York style pizza. Oh...so awesome. On vacation this is the first stop. It's really a hole in the wall, Main Street Carlsbad, pizzas are already made & you choose the pizza you want out of a case of ready made pizzas. Sounds horrible but it isn't. They pop it in the oven to warm it & it comes out... More
