Too greasy for me.

Their prices are high and their pizza is really greasy, especially the pepperoni pizza. And the snobby girls that work at the front counter really don't make it a pleasurable experience. I won't be going back.

The best pizza and subs in Maryland at the cleanest reataurant in town.

Pizza Johns uses the freshest ingredients and will make you the best pizza that you have EVER had in less than 10 minutes. The restaurant & kitchen is always super clean, as is the parking lot. The employees are very nice. I always take my friends to the restaurant when they're in the Middle River area. The lighting there is perfect too. The only thing that I do not like about the place is that they are closed on Mondays.

Great Pizza

This place has been around for a long time - you know when you go you are going to have a Great Pizza. They also have good desserts as well.

WORST PIZZA

I'm sorry to all you Pizza Johns fans but this is the worst pizza I have every had. Every incredient tasted like it was processed and way too much sodium. I know there are very few good pizza joints in that area but come on...get out more. I wouldn't recommend this pizza to my worst enemy.

Unbelievable Service

A simple extra cheese pizza will make you think you have died and gone to pizza heaven. Their dough is great, you can taste the quality. The sauce is good. The cheese is great. The cheese is gooey and stretchy. My kids love to eat here, and my oldest likes to bring friends to Pizza Johns. I haven't eaten the subs or pasta, I am a diehard pizza fan, but I hear they are good too. If you don't try anything else, try the pizza and milkshakes. I like to eat the cheese first, then eat the dough (crust) last, it is the best part. The staff is friendly and fast. You have never seen a cleaner restaurant than this one. And if something should need attention, Peter or another employee will be sure to see it through. Try it and enjoy!

1 of the best pizza I have found

We got a 16"" mushroom and pepperoni pizza. YUMMY! One of the best pizzas I
have found since I moved to Maryland and I was getting full after 1 slice!! We also got a 14"" cheese steak. I was to full to eat any but the Hubby said it was the best he has had since moving to Maryland. They have great milkshakes also!!!! We will be going back many times!!!

What a restaurant!

I've always eaten at Pizza John's. It always has been good, and still is. But now, with their renovations, the place looks completely different! Pizza John's always had five-star food; now, they have the looks to go along with it.

I have been going to Pizza John's since I was a kid and you could only carry out. They have the absolute best pizza anywhere! I have lived in Texas for 18 yrs now and every time I go home, this is the first place I go. The cheese steaks are to die for. My Dad even overnighted me a pizza one year. I bring two back with me to Texas whenever I'm there and they always remember me and special wrap them. Pizza John's will always be the best. Wish there was one here!

Disappointment

WRONG ORDER 50% OF TIME!
I have been a dedicated Pizza John person since they where a 333 1/2 (down the road from present location). I now am not going to go there anymore because in the last 3 year when I order a plain cheese steak sub or a pizza I get something in it I did not order. Just today I tried to give them another chance a ordered a pepperoine pizza, What I got had onion and mushrooms in it. This never happen in the past and many time I have told them and the problem still exist.
If you do not mined having thing you did not order in your meal the food is great.

The best around

I was there when they first opened. I was just a young child. I live in Chesapeake, Va now but when I go there to visit, it is the first place I go when I visit Baltimore. When I think of my home town Baltimore, I always think of Pizza John's. When I take my grown children there to visit my parents gravesite, that is the first place they want to go. I went there a couple months ago and the people who were there when I was a child are still there. I am now 50. It still stands while I went to Mars Estates Elem School, Deep Creek and then Kenwood High. I recommend Pizza Johns to everyone. You will not be disapointed. Marsha Way

Best Pizza on the East Coast!

I have been going to Pizza Johns for 20 years and I have not had a better pizza anywhere in the country yet. The pasta and subs are out of this world too. If you are looking for the best tasting pizza then Pizza Johns would be your place!
