I bought a pizza on Sunday night without big expectations, but the taste was really good! Easy to order by Internet, quick time to make the pizza and on time as planned in the order. I really recommend this place

The empanadas are fresh and full of creative and tasty fillings. One is the perfect size for a snack, three is a meal. The pizza is also very good, but the empanadas are special.

When I took a bite of my goat cheese, tomato, and mushroom pizza, I almost cried it was so good. The crust is not too thin, not too thick, and the ingredients are fresh and blend perfectly together. I have lived all over the world, all over the United States, and have traveled to every continent except for Antarctica. I... More

In the midst of the University of IL is this great pizza place. It is always busy and offers a wide variety of delicious pizza. There is both indoor and outdoor seating and pizza by the slice.

Good pizza. Above average in price. Below average in cleanliness. Decent though. Try it if in the area.

Manolo's has AWESOME gourmet pizza and their crust is delicious and homemade. One slice is perfect for a cheap lunch. My favorite is the Spotted Goat (salivating as I write). Their "barbecued meats" pizza is also delicious, and I'm usually not into really meaty pizzas. The curry pizza was also surprisingly good.

We recently ordered take out from Manolos. We ordered a wide selection of vegetarian empanadas. They arrived hot and crisp. We enjoyed all of them. The goat cheese pizza we ordered was also quite tasty. We will definitely be ordering again soon.

I went here to try the gluten free crust and was not disappointed. It was thin and flavourful. All of their toppings are gluten free except the chicken. My wife got tge bacon, egg and cheese empanadas and enjoyed it. I would definitely go again.

My nephew introduced us to this place near the old Thunderbird. It doesn't have seating, but we ate across the street at Krannert. if it had been warmer we would have just brought it to the Quad. Interesting combinations-I had a goat cheese one that was delicious. We would have gone back had we stayed longer.
