I've been going there for over 30 years and have never been disappointed. We do most of our birthday parties there. The deep dish pizza is the best👍

Tony's has been a go to pizza place for my wife and I and now our family for over 35 years. The freshness, quality, value and taste has been consistently great all through the years. Another consistency with this restaurant is the staff. Many have been working the restaurant floor or kitchen as long as we have been going there.... More

Tony's is ALWAYS a good choice for authentic Italian. Pizza is also good. So is the "old-fashioned" that they call THE GODFATHER. Don't forget to buy a quart of their marinara sauce before you ;eave. It's the best!! THEY ACCEPT CASH ONLY

I've been going here since I was small, from the late 70's till now. Very excellent pizza.Seems like the taste of their pizza is always different every time I go there, but manages to be good each time. Service is great. Atmosphere is cool, but very ancient inside. Wish they'd accept credit cards, but not a big deal. Its been... More

Hadn't been to Tony's for a couple of decades, and I remember why.... Not because they don't take credit or debit cards, but because it's mediocre. The food & the service were lacking. One of our group had reserved a table for 20, and we got 4 tables spaced apart like usual & then the waitress said, "Didn't they tell... More

It's dark and creepy with stuffed dead big cats on display behind glass. Pizza was blah and I was highly disappointed in my frozen canolli. Once was too much.

This place is a "blast from the past" inside and out. Outside looks very quiet and like it's not open. Has been there for over 40 years. I've wanted to try, not knowing if was pricey or what. They specialize in Neapolitan pizza, thing/crispy crust. WARNING - do NOT accept debit/credit cards - cash or checks - LOCAL checks. Don't... More

Fair warning this place only takes cash. They do have a full bar, deep dish pizza, and my fav is the beef sandwich. Every time I go I get great food,and service. I totally love the old look of the place and the animal mounts on the walls. It is just like I remember it looking from when I was... More

It is obvious that Tony's Place continues to exist for the nostalgia not the cuisine nor decor. My husband and I ordered a sausage deep dish pizza and found the crust to be soggy, the cheese was exceedingly thick and unappealing. We both suffered with intestinal problems after our meal. It is interesting that only cash is accepted as payment.... More
