Description: Jake's Pizza has been a southern Minnesota favorite for over 42 years. Our ingredients are made from scratch using family recipes that have been handed down from generation to generation. We use fresh Wisconsin low fat mozzarella cheese made specifically for us. Along with the best pizza Jake's is also a local restaurant that is responsible, in the last 9 months diverted and recycled over 14,000lbs for composting. Jake's also is a part of Eatiply donating over 3,000 meals to the local food shelf in the past six months.

We have actually driven with another couple (friends for 40 years) to Jake's for an evening meal!! and we live 2 1/2 hours away!! The pizza is AWESOME, people friendly, and love the Vikings memorabilia.

Can't recommend Jake's highly enough! A group I'm involved with uses the Party Room every couple of weeks for our meetings. It's a great space as it's roomy, private and we can eat and drink while we discuss our business! The staff has always been attentive and efficient. I am always amazed by how quick they bake the pizzas! Best pizza, best service, best party room!

Scheduled an event 4 weeks in advance at Jakes. Called 1 week prior and all is good ready for us. Arrive with 40 people and they acted like it was a surprise. Waited forever to get drinks and even longer to get pizza. No server asked us if we needed anything, they simply dropped pizzas in the room and left. Had to wait 30 minutes to find someone to pay. Very poorly managed business, I will do my part to help from anyone else ever going to this dump.

Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback regarding your party. I am disappointed that our service was not hospitable.
I would like to apologize for the poor service you had. We over booked the restaurant during Minnesota Vikings training camp and when some of the players came in it made it the perfect storm to have poor service for your party. It seems that the room was suitable and ready for you once the initial confusion was over and that pizza was good. We are going to review how we serve parties to make sure that they get the best possible service. We would love the opportunity to have you back and prove that we desired the number 1 ranking on Tripadvisor and I will personally make sure that you have the best service possible.

Pizza was great, thin crust! Everything was self service but we would definitely visit again. We had a large pepperoni and bacon.

Out of the dozen or so pizza places in town, this place is almost impossible to beat. They have a method of producing thin-crust pizza perfected. I don't often order thin-crust pizza when I go out or order delivery, but when I do, it's from Jake's. Nice wholesome atmosphere, family owned, run by local high schoolers and college kids. They are also a hot-spot for Minnesota Vikings training camp in July, for visitors and Vikings players alike. They also have a great collection of sports memorabilia on display. There are usually better deals around town at Dominos or Pizza Hut, but if you need an occasional upgrade to great taste, give them a try.
