I love Selma's. I think it is sometimes overlooked but they have a great and diverse menu and really good prices. The servers are always friendly, and the Chicago Style deep dish pizza is divine!

Husband and I came here for lunch on a Saturday and it was pretty much deserted. We decided to sit in the front patio where there was one other party. Waiter greeted us promptly and got our water for us and we asked him to give a few minutes with the menu. He did not come back in a few... More

They advertise as Chicago Pizza but it really isn't Their service is slow and they aren't really organized I came there and put my name in and they told me 15 minutes Another couple came in after me so for some reason they seated them first When I questioned them they had no answer as to why so I promptly...

Visited with family from out of town - pizza and beverages - very tasty and it was packed. Had a deep dish style with mushrooms, black olives, ham and onions.

My wife and I stopped in Monday evening for an early dinner. The fried cheese appetizer was ok. My wife enjoyed the italian sub sandwich, and I had the basil chicken pesto (which was ok). Our server was very friendly and helpful. With two drinks our bill came to ~$45. Not bad value for the money. In hind sight, we... More

Go to Selma's for a good meal from lunch until dinner. Good Happy Hour menu too. Their lunch special is a good value and great. Sit outside on their patio.

We happened in here on our final night in San Clemente, and were very pleasantly surprised. The guy playing guitar was very good and not so loud as to prevent dinner conversation. All four of us LOVED our food, and our server even had the chef whip up some cocktail sauce, which they don't normally serve. The server went waaay... More

We ordered a thin crust pizza expecting a crispy thin crust. What we received was a thin soft crust. I don't know if the usual "Chicago" pizza is a crispy crust or a soft crust. The toppings were all quite delicious.

Chicken panini and Italian Salad were delicious. Their ice tea machine was broken so had to settle for water.

We love Selma's pizza. Our family looks forward to eating pizza when we arrive in San Clemente. We always get extra pizza so we have leftovers to bring to the beach the next day. We also enjoy the wings.
