Been very fortunate and have lived and eaten pizza all over the world. People at work kept telling me about Pizza Johns. One of them walked in my office yesterday with a large pepperoni and they were right. It's the best pizza I've ever had!!!!!

This place never disappoints. The service is always friendly, the food is always fresh and lots of flavor no matter if you get a sub, platter or pizza. The ice cream is awesome. We never hesitate to go back.

It's always delicious here, but the food is so expensive. For my family of 4, it's always at least a $50 bill
