The Pizza Guy is one of those hit or miss kind of places. I’ve ordered from them several times when I wanted pizza delivered.

There’s nothing fancy about their food. The sauce is on the spicy side, so it’s not really a hit with the kiddos. They’re generous with their added toppings, but not so much with the cheese.

Today I ordered their lunch special - medium one-topping pizza with a soda for $8.99. When I asked about a delivery charge, they said they do not charge a delivery fee, but when the delivery guy showed up, the receipt showed an added buck for delivery. My total ended up being $10.92 plus tip. Overpriced for what you get. The Pizza Guy used to have much more reasonable prices and free delivery.

It took about an hour to get the pizza and when it showed up it was closer to cold than to hot. Disappointing. The driver had called up wondering where my house was, although I had ordered from there before without incident.

The pizza cheese was getting congealed, It was not fresh or stringy. The sauce was good, but too spicy for my daughter’s likes, so I had to make her something else to eat.

The Pizza Guy also serves wings.
All in all, The Pizza Guy was so disappointing this time that it will be my last time to order. There are plenty of better pizza joints in town and now that Fratelli downtown is delivering again, there’s no reason to order from this place. You can get a better pizza for a better price elsewhere.

*TIP: If you do order from The Pizza Guy, be sure to ask for their specials. You don't need a coupon but they won't necessarily tell you about them either.
