A party of four had the lunch buffet on a Saturday. I have been going here for 30 years since I was a kid. The pizza has gone a little down hill but is still very good. It has a taste all it's own. I think the price for the buffet is $6.99 for all you can eat. A real... More

I've been going to Pantera's for a very long time (more than 20 years!). They are always consistently great at thick crust pizza!

I remember the where's the beef campaign for Wendy's. Pantera's can do one called where's the cheese. The pre Frozen crust and lack of cheese and flavor made me feel like I got ripped off. I took four bites and could not take it anymore. On the second piece I took the pepperoni off and found about four strands of... More

Disappointing. Place is dirty and outdated. You serve yourself, get your own drinks, plates, etc. Not sure what the waitresses were doing there other than to clean the table after we left. Pizza was a little better than frozen from grocery store. Not like it used to be. I used to love this place. What happened?

A friend of mine & I try to meet up once a month for lunch and we always meet at Panteras. Great pizza. Great salad & pizza bar. Very economical & great atmosphere to sit & talk.

Pantera's is an Edwardsville institution- you'll see their names on at least one team in any local baseball or soccer league. They offer a great buffet and cheap pizza- if you want to save some money it's a good place to go, but we weren't huge fans of the pizza. Not good, not bad, just average.

Hands-down the best pizza you'll ever eat 5 to 6 pounds of love tucked into a box. What you can't finish, seven it up for breakfast the next morning. This store has a very friendly staff, great customer service with plenty of room for large gatherings. I will be back!!!!!!!!

The area is open seating with tables and booths. It can accommodate large parties with long tables for birthdays. The salad bar is well stocked and clean. The pizza is delicious. They offer fundraising to many schools and churches. Their are a family owned and give back to the community - two extra assets!

Excellent buffet selections-pizza options, pasta and sauce, dessert pizzas, salad bar. Game section to entertain. Can be cold and drafty so choose table carefully.

Pantera's Pizza in Edwardsville is the best pizza I've ever eaten. I have been a big fan of the daily double (two large combos is my choice) for 30 + years. The staff is friendly and the food is better than anything else in the St. Louis metro area. Do yourself a favor and try Pantera's if you haven't.

Thank Michael M
