Reason Enough to Live in Houston

Having been a total Ponzo's addict for about 5 years now, I have to say that it's hands down my go-to place for great pizza or even my cheese ravioli cravings! Having Ponzo's in the neighborhood is good enough reason for me to live in midtown. The convenience of having it delivered to your favorite local watering hole or just picking it up on a lazy Sunday is heaven. There's nothing like sitting on the porch on a nice day at Lil' Woodrow's and having your favorite food delivered to you.

A few years ago we discovered the option of ""double dough."" You have to try this. Double-dough, delux pizza is a must! Don't forget a to-die-for order of pepperoni rolls (add ricotta). Ponzo's also has amazing sandwiches too! Hot and cold. My favorites are the pepperoni/mozarella sub and the turkey club. Yum!

There are a lot of amazing places to get Italian food around Houston, but none compare to the consistency and quality of ingredients these guys use. We've never gotten a bad pie. I highly recomend their calzones as well. We had friends in from out of town (and by that, I mean outside of the loop) and they didn't know what they wanted, so I ordered them a Muffaletta calzone and they seriously ask to go to Ponzo's every time they're in the area now. The only draw back is that it seems every time they're here, it's on a Monday and Ponzo's is closed. That and the fact that due to the local businesses in the strip center, it's a little hard to find parking (other than the 2 designated spaces) if you're trying to just zip in and pick up your order between 6:00-8:00pm. Fortunately, everyone that works there is really nice and will literally come meet you at your car if the parking lot is full so you don't have to go park way far away and hike in your heels. Definitely try Ponzo's the next time you're thinking about phenominal pizza.....and say hi to Petey!

Authentic NYC pizza just greasy enough to cure all ails

If you have ever strolled down NYC's Arthur Ave. with a folded over slice of pepperoni bigger than your face that is dripping grease down your chin and you were incredibly happy about this, than Ponzo's is for you. If that though does not make you smile, stick to some of our town's other fine pizza joints.

Hands down the best NYC style pizza joint in town, this is the quintessential neighborhood dig for pizza that is just greasy enough to be comforting. If the black and white photos of Vito and Angelina on the wall don't put you in Queens, just chat up the owner who is usually found sitting at one of the inside tables. He will tell you the history of Ponzo's and launch into the details of their ingredients. This is a business that takes pride in its product.

And for that man in your life that is never full, the Godfather sandwich ought to shut him up, for a while at least (worked on my ex).

Don't be fooled by the strip mall. These joints, SuperCuts aside, represent some fine home-grown businesses. Neighbor Coffee Groundz is a hub for local start-ups and place to grab post pizza dessert.



Great Pizza

We went here to try their pizza after we saw a clip about them on the local news. It was REALLY REALLY great! Probably the best I have ever had.

We have been dedicated Ponzos customers since they opened 8 years ago. We lived in midtown at the time and they (like us) were pioneers to the midtown movement. They treat their customers right by adding a touch of love to every single pizza. We tried everything from their salads to sandwiches. Try the Godfather. It is perfect for game days!!!

Best Mushroom Pizza in Houston

Ponzo has some amazing pizza. We always get the mushroom. They saute the mushrooms with herbs so they have an extra kick to them. I've always liked pizza, but I love Ponzo's pizza. The owner is usually behind the counter helping to answer phones and ensure quality. He is a very nice guy and always says hello. It is located in the heart of midtown and the inside seating is limited. There is space outside on the patio that you can eat. It's located next to a bar so beer is easily accessible. At one point we moved to The Woodlands and we were lost without Ponzos. Now we are located back in midtown and very glad to only be a short walk away from great pizza. We refuse to eat pizza anywhere else in Houston.

Heck yeah, give me a large big boy!!!

Ponzo's has the best pizza I've ever had. Their 'big boy', which is topped with all sorts of meat, is to die for (long as you don't suffer from high BP or clogged arteries, because they will be clogged afterwards!). Their staff is friendly and delivery has always been within the specified time frame.

I HEART Ponzo's

I love Ponzo's pizza. I eat their pizza at least once a week. I have to say, the way they saute their mushrooms before they put them on the pizza just adds to the delicious combination of flavors. I also love they way they include parmesan cheese and red pepper flakes with the pizza.

I love this place!!!

This is a place I frequent at least once a week! I always pick up, as the delivery tends to take a while, but it is well worth it! The pizza is absolutely amazing, I am generally a thicker crust type of pizza eater but this thin crust is probably the best pizza I have ever tasted. Once you go to this place a couple of times, they remember your name and your regualr order, and they couldn't be nicer! The price is also great!

It's the dough

The twice baked pizza, the Sicilian is one of the many great pizzas Ponzo's offers. I realized after eating quite a bit that it had no meat, which is a new thing for a pizza I consider this good. Basicly anything involving their pizza dough is among my favorite pizza. You can find competitive pizza across town quality wise, but they always charge silly prices...Ponzo's happens to be close by the downtown area AND it's reasonable prices. Aces for authenticity.

Great pizza and meatball sub. Service is great. The smell when you walk in is the best. Smells like a NYC pizzeria.

Lunch special with orginal sub!!! Can't live without it!!!

This place is for real, great food, great owners...Not a cookie cutter chain. I love it and I highly recommended it to anyone in the midtown area.

Worth the drive

This neighborhood pizza/italian food has excellent fresh ingredients that are made by a friendly family. Hand tossed pizza that is thin crust is my favorite. Tomato sauce is spicy and full of flavor. Patio area to eat. Very Casual.

Houston's Best Pizza

Growing up in the Northeast we have been searching for pizza that was as good as the authentic italian pies of our youth. We found it at Ponzo's. Their pizza is superb and can easily compete with anything NYC can offer. If you love pizza the way we do you'll be forever grateful you went to Ponzo's. Order your pie and have it delivered next door to the Dog House tavern.
