It's hard to find quality sit down pizza restaurants these days. Minsky's not only serves great pizza but offers the opportunity to enjoy a sit down dining experience with more than just pizza on their menu. We usually order Minsky's for delivery but were pleasantly surprised by the service and atmosphere at Minsky's in Shawnee, KS. Minsky's pizza is definitely our favorite!

Threw my husband a surprise party at Minsky's last Sunday. Had a fantastic experience! We reserved the party room way in the back and it was the perfect space for us! We had about 30-ish people and we had plenty of space to mill around and visit. We got the pizza party pack for 30 people and added 2 salads and 60 cookies. Everyone ate plenty and we had some left over.. The price COULD NOT be beat! I had a budget and paid for food and drinks (including beer!) and even after gratuities, I was $5 under budget!!! All of the food was fantastic!!! The buffalo chicken, thai chicken, the one with the giant bacon pieces on it, I could go on and on.. Everyone had a different favorite and they were all really great!!!

Shout out to our server Heather G. for being such a patient and helpful server!!!

oooooohh.. I have to mention the chocolate chip cookies... THEY ARE AMAZING!!! so soft and chewy.. It's worth it to go back for the cookies alone!!!

I have been to many Minskys over the last 20 years, but this by far was the worst experience that I have ever had. Fist, we walked in and had to wait almost 10 minutes to be seated. There was very few people in the restaurant and most of the booths were dirty. The hostess had to not only greet us, and seat us, but she also had to bus the tables in order to seat us. We waited while she bused a table and seated one family, then bused our table to seat us. Meanwhile another family came in and she greeted them nicely and said she would get to them as soon as she bused our table and seated us. They were like "all these empty seats and we have to wait?. Needless to say, they left. Shortly after that I saw 5 more people come from the back to help.
It took about 10 minutes to get our drinks, (water w/ lemon), then we were able to order. We then watched 3 other tables that came in after us, get served there food first. Our waiter came by to refill our waters and filled one glass when the other two needed filling. He ran off and we had to yell at him. Luckily the hostess heard us and told him to come back. Needless to say, we did not tip very much. It seemed to us that the hostess deserved our tip more than anyone else in that place. The waiter did try to apologize about us getting served after the others. His excuse was that they got "slammed" real hard before we came. I'm sorry, but I have worked in restaurants before on major holidays where we feed people non-stop for 10 hours straight. This place would not know slammed unless it was the door of customers walking out.

We have been going to Minsky's pizza for years, including this location. We moved away 3 years ago and upon returning for a visit this time, we noticed that the prices went up about $2 for every menu. A small cheese pizza ran us about $10. A mini hamburger would have been about $6. Pretty pricey considering it is just pizza. Service on this visit was friendly, but slow.

Went out to lunch with a girlfriend. We had the Jumbo Combo pizza and it was deliciously stuffed and very cheesy. We also shared the Chicken Club Salad, it was filled with fresh veggies and topped with tender juicy grilled chicken. We had the Bacon Herb Dressing and it was to die for. Our server, Heather G. was the best. Our drinks never where empty and she was very friendly and always had a smile on her face.
