The drummies are still the best and the boneless were amazing too! I usually don't like those,but they were delicious. The sausage/mushroom pizza was great also! Miss this place!

We ordered the traditional deluxe with fresh mushrooms. There was a strange taste to it that I did not like. It seemed a little under-cooked. I had one slice. I don't know if the meat or onions were "off" but it was not a pleasant taste. The crust was a bit soggy, too. I would have rated it a one... More

Was able to order on-line, delivery time was satisfactory (roughly 30 to 45 minutes) and the pizza was hot on delivery. Delivery person was friendly and most importantly the pizza tasted great.

The Pit has been around forever with good, inexpensive Pizza. Went here after driving 5+ hours for an ISU football game. Pretty much just like it was when I was eating here or having it delivered 20-30 years ago... and that is a very good thing! Fast and friendly service from another Games institution.

So often we just want a delicious, hot pizza and a casual, friendly atmosphere. We love to come to the Pizza Pit to meet friends. We've been coming here for many years and have never been disappointed. They do not serve cocktails; however, they do serve beer.

Its been around a long time for a reason -- good pizza at reasonable prices. They have a good lunch deal.

Pizza Pit has a wide range of toppings and specialty pizzas to choose from as well as sandwiches and other apps, along with delivery option and prices within budget make this a good choice for pizza in town.

We were trying to grab a late evening single slice of pizza. Stumbled in to this place located above a bar. Good prices and decent pizza. Big screen tv to watch the game and decent college atmosphere.

In town for a wedding and had pizza delivered to the hotel afterwards. Good pizza and even better after you've been drinking. A little pricey.

Not much on atmosphere but the pizza is out of this world! Can't wait to visit our son again as we will definitely go here again! The crust, the sauce, the toppings were all just superior!
