We ordered carry-out pizza for 8. The 3 pizzas were veg, and 2 mixed. All were very good, large enough to serve us and they were prompt on service. It was worth it while visiting in KC. Will return

You have 3 different choices of plate sizes with a good choice of veggies and I chose the Garlic ranch dressing and it was very good. They also huge list... More

I visited Waldo Pizza during Restaurant Week. (This was not my first visit, but it is my most recent, and it's about time I remembered to submit a review.) The pizza is delicious, and for those who don't want pizza, you can also get pasta or sandwiches. There's a buffet at lunch in case you want other options. We also... More

My husband and I are always searching for a great pizza. This one filled the bill. I had the Waldo Specialty Veggi, thin crust. It was just delicious! I also started with their small Caesar Salad, which was very good also. Dressing was good with nice shavings of Parmesan cheese. The atmosphere is VERY casual. I liked that opportunity to... More

A wonderful local pizza restaurant that offers a first class , quick buffet in a nice setting. They specialize in thin crust pizzas with many unusual toppings. The lunch buffet is very popular and replacement pizzas are constantly supplied. The salad bar is very fresh and quite extensive. This works well for lunch meetings with my oldest daughter , as...

Kansas City son took us to his favorite pizza place and recommended the St. Louis-style pizza. It is very thin crust, and he is correct that it is very good. Our waiter was very good and pleasant, and we certainly enjoyed the whole experience. The hand-tossed pizza was good too from all reports, but I concentrated on the thin-crust.

Met some out of town friends here for dinner last week. They have few tables for larger parties, so we had about a 25 minute wait. The salad bar is small, but has all you need to make a great salad, and everything is fresh. The pizza was very good. My wife and I got the thin crust combo. Our... More

Description
In the five years since Waldo Pizza last won this category, Phil Bourne's KC institution has inched nearer the quarter-century mark with an ever-growing beer list, a popular gluten-free crust and yet another expansion of the original site. What hasn't changed: the place's dead-solid reliability. That might sound like faint praise, until you remember the second law of restaurant thermodynamics: entropy. Even beloved destinations occasionally coast, sometimes to a full stop. Not Waldo Pizza, where Bourne and a crew including not just regulars but lifers keep vigil over the details while attending devoutly to customers. A wall of Saturday-night families, a switchboard lit up with delivery orders, a keg about to run dry — none of these eventualities lead to so much as a stray green-pepper sliver when your pie shows up in front of you. But bring on the green peppers — and the banana peppers and the spicy beef and the cheddar and everything else on a menu that's long on good ideas.
