One thing I've noticed about my fellow reviewers is that we truly enjoy praising a worthy establishment. We are optimists and like giving credit where credit is due. That having been said, Jaspare's is very deserving of a five star rating. Let's start with the food. I always respect a place that has gluten-free items. Jaspare's had Gluten-free items before most people even knew what gluten was. I would have to put myself on that list of people. Many restaurants have traditionally shied away from gluten-free items especially in the Italian food realm because it demands the entrée still be delicious and marketable despite being gluten-free. This creates a greater demand upon culinary skills and this restaurant absolutely nails it. Whether you are ordering pizza, pasta, or a sub, the menu items here are all consistently delicious. Beyond the pizzas my personal favorite is the steak sub. The tender juicy meat is flavorful and it's also loaded with cheese. The Owner is usually around and Employees here are always gracious and do a great job. Jaspare's also takes pride in supporting the local community. Over the years I've seen them donate to WMU, Churches, Schools, Race For Kids Sake, Generous Hands and many other charities. I appreciate a locale that thinks about its community in addition to its own interests. Great job Jaspare's Pizza! Keep up the good work.
I visited for my first time a few weeks ago. My mom was interrdted to try it after hearing a lot of good reviews on the radio. We went and we're very disappointed at their customer service. The pizza was good, but definitely not worth the price. Then, when our meal was through, it was time to change my infant's diaper. There was no changing table in the bathroom, which forced me to change his diaper in the seat of my booth. How sanitary is that?!? I am sure I am not the first person to come in with a baby, and I certainly will not be the last. I spoke with the manager, but nothing was done. (Not his fault, though-it's up to the owner.) So I messaged the owner. No response. So now here I am, completely disappointed at the disregard the owner has for customers that come in in with their family. I will never visit again because I don't feel it can possibly be a clean place to eat, nor do I want to support someone who clearly doesn't care about his customers.
I remember this place from when I was a kid. in the big window you used to be able to see them toss the pizza in the air. I always thought that was so kool. To this day, this is and will always be the best pizza that I have ever eaten, and I consider my self a pizza connoisseur. I have eaten pizza all over the world, and nothing beats this down home Kalamazoo pizza. So glad you guys are still around. Can't wait to come and visit so I can get a slice, and bring back some awesome childhood memories
When I saw that Bilbo's had won the Reader's Choice for Kalamazoo Pizza, I wondered if it was really THAT good. It was. We ordered thin crust wheat pizza with pepperoni, onions and mushrooms. The crust was delicious (unlike some wheat crust which can have a slightly bitter taste) and the toppings awesome: lots of cheese (you don't order pizza for the veggies!), wonderful rich tomato sauce, and crisp veggies to boot! This is pizza worthy of a special occasion!
I love the food but was very disappointed that they won't deliver 3 miles to my house! when I asked them how far their delivery range was they wouldn't answer me. just kept asking what street I live on. when I told them their response was we don't deliver there. bull!
My first visit to west main papa murphys was exeptional. It was a warm welcomed enviroment. All the crew were pleased to please you. You could tell the store manager is a well rounded people person. A very positive enviroment.
