Best pizza I've ever had! Staff is always friendly. Yes there tends to be a wait so go early or be prepared to have a couple drinks while waiting.


Best Pizza on the Planet!

Deep dish lovers, look no more, this is the best! Nasty and dark looking place, with heavenly, cheese-heavy, and uniquely spicy sauced pizza! The first time I went I ate just one slice, the second time just 2 1/2. The most pizza possible for the price and expect leftovers! Open at 5pm every day for a reason, and always the same employees working. Be patient these big pizzas take an hour plus to cook depending on business! This is my favorite secret in all of Saint Louis!


Short on the Goodies

Customer from Ohio

Thin crust O.K. However, product was short on the sausage and pepperonie. Compared to other pizzas, it had a bitter taste.


Tasty pizza

Nice place to get a Chicago style pizza in St. Louis. The sauce is very flavorful and the toppings are tasty.

I love going to Black Thorn!! My friends and I have been going there for a couple of years now and have never had a problem. The pizza is AMAZING, we always get the Chicago style. I can only eat two peices, even when I starve my self all day. I would recommend ordering the pizza before hand because it does take them awhile to make it. There is tv, dart boards, shuffle board, and an air hockey table. The pub is not dirty but it has that raw dirty look to it. It does get smokey up stairs but the down stairs is not bad at all.

great pizza!

well i thought i would check this place out since it got such high reviews. the pizza was really good but i definitely learned the definition of a dive bar. the bar itself left a lot to be desired. it was very unkept and i was doubtful about eating anything there. but the pizza was good! the only thing they have is pizza, cheese bread and some salads so dont expect variety. and they do have an air hockey table, which i thought was cool. i dont think i'll go back because of the dirtiness. no pizza is worth that lol



I got a regular crust pizza with pepperoni, onions, and green peppers and it was the best thing I've ever eaten anywhere. The green peppers were big and crispy, just how I like it. If you order right when they open at 5, a Chicago style pizza should only take about 45 minutes.

Anyone that wrote a bad review about the Black Thorn, Should Stay Home and Cook!

My husband and his buddy have been on a mission since Adamo's closed to find the best pizza in town. It's funny that I never get to go on their rendezvous do to schedule conflicts, however I do get to sample the left overs!

And let me tell you, no I personally have never been to the Black Thorn, yet my husband and his compadre have...and they have found their new place for their weekly craving!

My husband always saves me a slice, and WOW...even as a leftover, I have NEVER been more impressed. I'm ready to go and experience the place for myself. I have a three year old, and for those of you complaining about not being kid friendly, maybe your kids need manners ...no successful establishment would turn away income!...and if you know its a pub...and smoking is allowed...why are you taking them there in the first place? Just to complain?

Those that complain about bad service, more than likely have no idea what's involved in ""serving"" people. Especially people who can't wait more than 30 seconds for a beer, soda, or menu, or Ect and begin to YOOOHOO the wait staff. Is that how people get your attention where you work? The point of eating out is to RELAX and enjoy someone else taking care of the task of preparing and serving a meal.

So to the staff of the Black Thorn...all of this venting came of a piece of day old pizza that was AMAZING!....Can't wait to visit! Great place for our next girls nightt out!

Thank You!
