Even though its not in a high visibility location, this pizza house has a lot to offer. The staff is fairly inexperienced but once you get past that, the pizza is very tasty. Always concentrate on ordering pizza and lay off anything else on the menu that's not a pizza.

Yes, the pastrami pizza is yummy, but it is not worth the rude and lazy service from the staff. Literally every time I've been the staff act as if customers are bothering them. It's a known thing amongst people living in downey that Downey Pizza Co is rude. The wait for food is too long and last time they never... More

Pizza was mediocre! Service is the worst, took us 20 minutes to have any of the waitresses to approach us and offer us something to drink. Not coming back !

When you think of pizza you imagine cheese, mushrooms and pepperoni on a flaky thin or thick crust. Well it's time to let your imagination run wild and imagine cheese, pastrami, mustard and pickles on that same flaky delicious crust. This pizza is definitely worth a try and if you like a great pastrami sandwich you are going to thoroughly... More

The thought of a pastrami pizza didn't sound all that great until I had it at Downey Pizza Co. It's an explosion of flavor in my mouth. The pastrami is cooked very well, almost crunchy on the edges. Basically the only thing I eat there along with a salad. For those who enjoy pastrami I highly recommend it.

Located in the heart of Downey, California, The Downey Pizza Company is a local hangout. Lots of televisions, a full bar, and lots of seating, locals will tell you this is the best pizza in town... and its true! I ordered the fried green beans with ranch dressing dip, a Caesars salad and the infamous pastrami pizza. This thing is... More

Who knew mustard replacing pizza sauce. Simply Delicious. Can't just eat one slice. Cool spot in Downey. Around for a while. Nothing fancy. You can even see them prepare the pizzas. A bit loud when you have sports teams celebrations there. Who cares pastrami pizza is great.
