Really tasty pizza, not much by way of niceties in the restaurant but it's all about the pizza right. They really need better beer choices!

Thin crust pizza is their specialty. Salads are average. Service is ok, nothing special. But the pizza is excellent. A great family place. Enjoy!

If you like thin crust pizza, this is the spot to be. Get the family pleasure with some breadsticks for the full meal deal

The service was pretty slow. Just waiting for someone to come and take our order for drinks took about 10 minutes, and waiting for the food was even longer. The pizza was pretty good though. Choices of thin crust and thick crust, and other options other than pizza. Pricing was average: an 8 inch personal pizza was about 7 dollars.

I had a sandwich from Monicals a few days ago which was really good, so I ordered one today to pick up on my way to work. Horrible! The employees were more concerned with speaking to each other. I couldn't even get their attention to get some napkins. When I opened the sandwich at work, it was poorly made. Hardly... More

Best breadsticks of any pizza joint. Thin crust pizza is the best. They have great Italian sausage. It's a favorite of everyone in my family.

Have been to Monicals pizza many times. Really like their thin crust pizza and the salad with Monicals own recipe dressing. Give it two thumbs up for good food and service.

We frequent the Monical's on East College in Normal. They recently did some remodeling and have reopened. The pizza is still great. We visited again tonight (second time this week) and were thrilled that we had Jennifer as our waitress. She is EXCELLENT. Pizza was great as usual.

I love Monical's Pizza! We ate here along with another couple and we shared a large pizza, bread sticks, and salad. The breadsticks are YUMMY. They taste a little like a pretzel. Yum. The salad is simple but good with chopped tomatoes and lettuce and your choice of dressing they bring to the table with your salad.

I grew up in the area and Monical's was a family favorite. We used to go there for birthday parties and after football games. Now I try to make a stop there whenever I'm back. I love the thin crust pizza and the red salad dressing! Their pizzas are a good value, especially when you get the
