“Simple.... Just Pizza! Love Fricano's!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014 via mobile

This simple pizza joint is a local fave! Original Fricano's is in Grand Haven. When they noticed the amount of Muskegonites driving to get their scrumptious delight they open in Muskegon! Over-looking the Muskegon Lake! My family loves to ride our bikes on the "Lakeshore bike trail" to Fricano's! Great ice cream shoppe below for a sweet treat on the way out!
Just great pizza!

“One of the best thin crust pizzas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014

Fricanos has been an institution in West Michigan for decades. One of the family members opened the Muskegon location years ago in an old factory on Muskegon Lake. You have the choice of pizza or pizza with limited toppings. Good service, full bar.

“Love it or hate it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014

There really is no middle ground here. I have visited many times over the years and have always enjoyed the pizza. It is very thin almost like a cracker, and they have a narrow selection as far as toppings. If you have never been, you need to give it try. Just a warning you may fall in love with it and find yourself returning repeatedly.

“Greasy and overpriced”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2014 via mobile

The only thing on the menu is pizza with limited topping choices and beverages (mostly bottle only). For pop they charge for refills. Pizza was extremely greasy - I used a napkin on each slice to sop up some of it - but still got a stomach ache later! The pizza is served on paper plates. Some people swear by this place, but for me, it is overpriced and overrated.

“Pizza Only”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2014

If you are going with the thought of being able to order any other food item will be out of luck. They have pizza or pizza. There is very little imagination in what you get.
