This specialty pizza is delicious! Thursday night special Family size ham pizza for $7.99 is also excellent deal!

I am partial to the Tower of Pizza, but it's a toss up. Get city has been around forever. The pizzas are excellent, the service is too. Try the Jeff's special. Tcby across the street us great for desert.

I've heard a lot about Gem City pizza. The pizza's good. ....a great way to feed 3-4 people for under $20.

I grew up on Gem City Pizza. It just doesn't taste the same anymore. It is still tasty. The staff was nice and friendly but the service was slow. I would visit again. Not the same Gem City Pizza

Pizza is the winner here...go to their sister restaurant Tower and have Mexican (skip the pizza at Tower)... Had a large group of 14 and I recommend calling ahead to let them know beforehand. They don't reserve the table but will plan to have your group and put you ahead of walk-in customers at the time. Very busy place (popular!)... More

This was our first time here and I will probably eat here again. My kids ordered the All American pizza, which had a lot of toppings and was very good. I had the burrito meal, which included a chicken and beef burrito, rice, and re-fried beans. I almost could not eat it all but somehow did. We also enjoyed the... More

Really good pizza. My friends had a variety of Mexican. Cool to get two totally different types of food in one place. Service was fast and friendly.

On Wednesdays they have a half price Mexican food menu, great value. I still prefer the pizza (Jeffs special is great) but it's hard to pass up half price anything. I got the chicken fajita burrito which was very good. This is the oldest pizzeria in town & it's easy to see why.
