They were not kidding with their logo when it says,"One bite and we got you!" I love their pizza. I use to love a local place by my house but my family tought their cheese was too salty. I finally got a taste of Numero Uno Pizza and no more salty cheese for me, YEAH!!
I work close to this place so I ordered from them twice before and it was BAD service. It's been a while so I thought I try them out again, and this girl picked up the phone who's not even articulate. I asked for delievery and she said they have a delievery in Arcadia at 11:30. What does that have to do with me, I asked and she said I'm just letting you know that the delievery guy has another drop off before you in Arcadia so I'm not sure if he will deliever your pizza by 12:00, sorry. WHAT????? I would not ever order from there nor eat there EVER.

No fancy ?designer? Italian pies deceptively calling themselves ?pizza? here. That?s why I refer to the original Italian-American pizza pie consisting simply of a pizza dough crust, tomato-based pizza sauce, your choice of favorite toppings from the original list of pizza toppings: pepperoni, Italian sausage, mushrooms, olives, onions, tomato chunks, real Mozzarella Cheese ONLY, etc., as ?THE TRADITIONAL PIZZA.? And I believe that the BEST ?Everything on it? Traditional Pizza is made at Numero Uno?s pizza restaurant chain and it is called ?The Slaughterhouse Pizza.? Their ?Slaughterhouse Pizza? is a deep-dish pan pizza?NOT Chicago-style?that consists of a 1-inch thick, slightly-sweet ?secret recipe? pizza dough topped with lots of pepperoni, mushrooms, onions, and green bell peppers. Smells heavenly and tastes oh, so delicious! HOWEVER, it does ?lose something? in the flavor when cooled and later re-heated. To verify why I believe this is the best ?Everything on it? pizza, you must first taste it freshly-made and hot out of the oven so that you can taste all of the flavors melding together inside your mouth. So, unless you literally live within 5 minutes of a Numero Uno location, try not to order this particular pizza for ?Take Out,? or else your FIRST IMPRESSION of the ?Slaughterhouse Pizza? will be a major disappointment.
NOTE: Personally, I have often patronized both the Glendale and the Pasadena Numero Uno locations and the quality there is consistent. I have not visited the Toluca Lake location, but other pizza lovers have been happy with that Numero Uno location, too. While each Numero Uno location is independently-owned and operated, they don?t seem to work together as a whole: some owners just don?t care about the food quality at their restaurant?which could give all Numero Uno pizza locations a bad name; and not all restaurants will honor ?Numero Uno? discount coupons, either. So, buyer beware.

Numero Uno may be the most inconsistent restaurant chain Ive ever eaten at. I should qualify that I have never been to the Pasadena branch, but the Glendale branch (316 N Brand Blvd.) and the Toluca Lake (4006 W Riverside Drive) serve the best thick-crust chain pizzas I have ever had -- thick sweet crusts, fresh toppings, lotsa cheese -- heavenly!
On the other hand, the North Hollywood and Van Nuys branches serve pizza I wouldnt feed to prisoners of war. The long-closed Studio City branch was even worse -- I once sent back a pizza there because the crust was 2/3 raw! So, before braving any branches not mentioned here, get a recommendation first. Caveat emptor!

The pizza here is so Good! Its absolutely one of the best! It dominates over pizza hut, dominoes, and all those other !@$!@ chains! And its affordable aswell! You can get yourself an individual size portion for just several bucks. The service could be a little rude though. The one on wilshire blvd the waiter treats you like your a red headed step child. But its all good.. Because I leave no tip! No not because im cheap, But because its there job to serve. And i wasnt born gratuitous! Just give me my delicate little pan pizza that I can savour with the tomatoey flavor and im Happy. As for your tip. Dont pee while the wind faces you! And as far as Numero Uno Goes. Dont know about it being ""Numero Uno"" But it sure might be Numero ""Dos"" o ""Tres"".
