This was our first time here and we only had pizza but I feel that for $ 10.00 and unlimited toppings, freshly baked pizza it was a delicious value. The eat in area is not huge and sparse but seats apprx 15 - 20. Staff were friendly and seemed happy to be there. Will definitely be back

I have been back to Garlic Democracy in hopes that I would find my next trip better. Well the one after my last review turned into something else. I ordered pasta and got it for take out. I picked up my order and left to go to work. Once at my work I started eating the pasta. It had not... More

I had heard good things about this place. Kind of a hole in the wall type restaurant. 3 offerings. Pasta, Pizza or Salad with unlimited toppings all for $9.99. Small space with a few tables. Decor and presentation needs work. I had the pasta alfredo with chicken and bacon. The veggies were added in after and were not cooked, so... More

If you have 10 dollars to spend on a pizza, and put anything on it you wish, this is the place to go. Where else can you have bbq sauce, chicken, your choice of cheese, and an assortment of any vegetable and meat product. Awesome!

The Garlic Democracy has only three items on its menu but hundreds of choices. You decide on pizza, salad or pasta then choose as many toppings as you want. Five kinds of meat, vegetables galore, sauces, cheeses - even get a pizza with different toppings on each half. All for just $10 each. Best deal in town. There is a... More

This is an odd review to write. We stumbled across this place and decided to give it a try. This is a place where you go to the counter and order and they call you when it is ready. We were greeted by Mary-Ann at the counter who was warm, friendly and helpful with our orders. I went with the... More

Did not enjoy the experience. I was here once before and had the pizza which was pretty good. This time I had the pasta. I chose the Alfredo with mushrooms, red onions chicken and sausage with "fresh grated" Parmesan cheese. It was nice and hot but totally submerged in sauce (almost soupy). The rest of the ingredients were buried at... More
