First off I must come clean, I love this place. I always eat as a family and it is always a challenge to satisfy every taste in our group. Palanzas is a go to spot to satisfy everyone. As for your first time; try their homemade Pork chop (its a tenderloin... but not listed as such) Their salad dressings are... More

Pizza is not the only thing on the menu. There are plenty of other choices for those who do not like the pizza which I find too greasy. The house salad dressing is excellent.

Love the pasta, wings and pizza. The salads are the best with their homemade dressings. Great service. My favorite place to eat out in Washington.

Palanza's has the best pizza and fried chicken around, but their chicken and shrimp alfredo is OUTSTANDING! We love all of their appetizers too, with the mac n cheese bites being the best. I can't leave without getting a salad with their home made dressings. Everything is wonderful here!

Brought the family for dinner on a Friday night. It was packed. Fortunately we made reservations with our party of six. The service was fabulous; our drink cups were never empty. The food was delicious. My daughter ordered the fried chicken and it was really good. My husband and I shared a pizza, thin crust. Very good. Prices were reasonable.

My husband grew up going to Palanzas and likes their pizza, but we are both very unimpressed with their service and inconsistency of the food. We have been to both locations and the biggest complaint is the staff. Loud, unprofessional, and unorganized can best describe the workers, including the management. The pizza is good, but again, it is not always... More

Husband and I ate for the first time at the new location. Food was great, service great. We were VERY uncomfortable with two of the workers, neither being our waitress. The man kept hanging on the girl.....massaging here neck....hugging here from behind, sensually rubbing here back. This was off and on our whole visit! They were standing right where everyone...

This area of the country is not a dining mecca, and this place fits right in. Pretty old school - cracker baskets on the table, canned mushrooms, etc. Nice family atmosphere however.

We go to Palanzas 3-4 times a year. On our most recent visit, we sat ourselves at a table for six people that had a "reserved" sign posted. There were many tables with similar "reserved" signs. I understand maximizing the available seats. There were three people in our party and it was 7:30 pm. The hostess politely asked us to... More
