Best pizza I have had since the early 80's. Sometimes really busy, but most times worth the wait! I always get the food to go-always fresh hot and delicious!

I have never been disappointed by John's Pizza. I have compared them to all other pizza places in the area and they won hands down! Consistent quality and service and honestly great pizza. They also pass the cold pizza test!

This place is very small, and we sat at the largest table in the center of the room. There were other booths and tables in the place. There was a small place that has games to entertain the kids, so my kids were there, and found something to do while waiting. The pizza was wonderful. The lasagna was good. The... More

Loved this place. I had the sausage ravioli with marinara....best ravioli because the marinara was outstanding! Others with me had the fried chicken and pizza and said their food was excellent as well. Great, friendly service, nice looking place.
