“Real Dayton Pizza”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Marion Glass, the late founder, worked for Cassano's and decided he had a better idea. They serve
thin crust pizza cut into squares as Cassano's pioneered, but uses special lower fat, delicious sausage and less pepperoni, creating a much less greasy pizza. The taste is hungered for by ex-Daytonians, causing much air freighting to distant locations. It's unique and habit-forming. Complementing the pizza is draught soda pop and beer, subs, steak subs and salads.

“Not sure what all the hype is”
Reviewed 6 December 2013

People lover their Marion's. I would say their pizza is average to me. I can think of 8 other places I would rather get pizza from. Overpriced to boot.

“Such unique pizza”
Reviewed 30 November 2013

Marion's pizza is cut in squares and filled with crumbled cooked sausage - delicious. Also they have a thin crust that I prefer and don't smother their pizzas with a load of cheese. It is so tasty - you can actually taste the wonderful ingredients instead of having it covered over and diluted by melted cheese. Though we have moved from the area, we always order one when we return for a visit

“Great for families and groups...”
Reviewed 6 July 2013

Despite having grownup nearby, I was never very enamored with Marion's. However, we visited from out of town and decided to take the whole gang the night before we departed. I had low expectations, but was surprised at how good it was. Ordered four pizzas (deluxe, plain cheese, two sausage and pepperoni). There were hot & fresh, and all the kids were happy. It's a thin, crispy crust, cut into squares. They have all the traditional toppings, and their sausage is good. It is not a very robust pizza, but it's not bland either. It's certainly a big improvement over whatever you might order from the national pizza chains. Prices were reasonable too.

“Good Italian entrees and pizza”
Reviewed 7 June 2013

Marion's is a no nonsense, old style Italian eatery with good pizza and very reasonably priced entrees - lasagna etc ... You can have a good meal for well under $10. Not fancy by any means but a good place to go with a group or friend for a meal.
