With lots of selection you won't be bored, I'd recommend the mac and cheese slices if they have them (among others). Beats your standard chains...

Fun place to go fast service. Pizza by the slice with so many to pick from. I could set there all day and pick one then another one then another one then another one be there all day and never have the same one TWICE. Little place but very good pizza. YES I'm going back..

So this place is a total dive. Doesn't look clean or even like a cool eclectic joint. We ordered several different kinds of pizza. I had Chicken Pesto and it was pretty blah. I'm thinking with so many slice choices a lot of it sits out for a loooong time. Nothing tastes super fresh. The service was ok.. Younger kids... More

I went in at dinner time and asked how old the pizzas were, that were out. I was told they were up to 4 hours old. Yikes! Before I was served, they were warmed up. But this is NOT the right way to serve pizza. Also, despite the fact that it was 6 pm, I was the only person in... More

We went here while visiting the area based on reviews that said they had good pizza that was not overly expensive. Upon arriving, we were a bit worried when we read the full name for the establishment included "pizza by the slice" Thankfully, they also did full pizza orders! The pizza here is slightly more expensive than chain pizza joints,... More

The most expensive and the worse pizza that I ate in my life. I am sorry for this bad review but the real pizza has another taste.

Pizza fans, it doesn't get better than this. This is the best pizza I have ever eaten and with all the flavor combinations they have, it is Pizza Heaven! Who cares that it is tiny and a bit divey, their pizza is the bomb. A college tradition that I will keep going as I get older. Love the Mac and... More

While walking thru Dinkytown we were interested in this place. The staff was very friendly and helpful explaining the variety of pizza ready. The shop was a bit dark and not the cleanest. The pizza was good, but not something we would go out of our way to eat again.

The macaroni and cheese pizza is incredible, and Mesa is the only place I've ever found who does it right. They have a great variety of fun kinds of pizza, available by the slice so you can try a couple!
