I liked this place. The pizza was good and fresh. And the sub my friend ordered was really good too (they weren't chincy with the meat either, which is a big plus). The only thing that kept it from a 5-star review is that the pizza was a little dry, it needs more sauce. I ended up going to the counter and explaining that, and they gave me a little dish of sauce to dip my pizza in, which helped a lot.

I'm a local/native and LOVE Dion's! It's my favorite pizza because it's not too greasy and the crust is neither thin nor super thick...just right! The salads are always fresh and large portions. The subs are delish! My husband and his family are from the east coast and eat the subs and salads up like nobody's business, but they feel the pizza is lacking. Probably because it doesn't have pounds of grease lol Either way, my favorite go-to place when in the mood for pizza, salad, or a sub

Pros: Pizza, salads, subs, service

Cons: people from east coast tend to not like the pizza much

I absolutely love Dion's pizza on fourth st.. Not only is the food great, the employees are always friendly, love to make small talk, and are always smiling. The pizza is amazing, I love new mexican green chile on mine. The subs are always getting better, and the salads are always fresh and made just for you. The employees are mostly teens, and most are valley kids from around the community. They are mature, and will help you if you need anything, such as extras, help out to your car, or to trade in dressings. The refills are free, you can phone in or dine in. late afternoons are usually the busiest, but it's well worth the wait, and again the employees are too nice, probably the nicest of all the Dion's, and always laughing and joking around with each other. What a great atmosphere! Sometimes you can even catch them all singing...

Cons: busy afternoons. short wait. can run out of dion's ranch! beware.

Really good subs and gourmet pizzas. We usually order 1 of each and share them. Many located throughout the city, good for large groups, inexpensive good food. When you need a sure thing.

Pros: Conviently located throughout city, many locations

Cons: Can get crowded on weekend evenings, call ahead for take-out

Dion's pizza is everywhere in Albuquerque, and for good reason. The pizza is more Californian (whatever that means) than New York, but it is still consistently scrumptious-and I prefer New York style pizza. The salads are big and well-composed, and the place is great for groups. I also have a soft spot for the one on Academy because of the Kandinsky prints on the wall-how often do you see those in restaurants?

Every summer my kids and I travel to New Mexico to visit family. We must always make more than 3 visits to eat a Dions. The Ranch Salad and the Pizza baked on a slate are the best ever. I worked for Dions over 16 years ago when they were on Zuni and San Mateo. Now I live in Houston and still after 4 years of hunting for the perfect pizza Joint, have failed to find anything worth eatting. Good luck and it is nice to see the growth of Dions throughout the city. Why not grow over to Houston?

Without a doubt, Dion's Pizza has both a strategic and a sustainable advantage over the competition. The unique combination of fresh, copious toppings, incredible sauce, perfect dough, and friendly knowledgable staff add to a relaxing atmosphere that is second to none. Handcrafted salads and subs are made fresh and customer requests for slight changes effortlessly accommodated. Background music is maintained at a comfortable volume enabling normal conversation all leading to an enjoyable experience. Table tops, chairs, and surroundings are clean and well maintained both inside and out. Dining at Dion's is a wonderful experience to be shared with family, friends, and colleagues.

Dion's is the best pizza I have ever had. I compare all the other pizza's I have tried to there's and thus far have found nothing that comes close, even in New York. The atmosphere, the friends, the food, its the best.

The Dions at Coors and Montano undercooks the pizza and doesn't add enough sauce. It's like eating half-baked pita bread with a little tomato juice on it.
Disgusting.

This is unfortunate because they would normally be my first choice for pizza, but I have stopped going there entirely.

It's well worth a visit, but it's not the best. Lovely hand tossing flavorful pizza. Atmosphere similar to a well lit pizza hut (which is in line with the prices).

New Mexican's seem to love Dion's. I have lived here for over 6 years now and I have figured out why. The salads and sandwiches are good and well worth it, but the pizza is just terrible. There is not much good pizza in Albuquerque, but I will have to say that Giovanni's is the best that I have had. Saggio's is a close second.

Dion's has been around for as long as I can remember, and it's always been excellent. Sure they make mistakes from time to time but considering the volume of business they do it's incredible they can maintain their quality and service. These guys just keep getting better!

Pros: filling, semi-inexpensive, good locations

Dion's is a chain whose workers range from 14 to about 18 years. These "kids" don't care, nor can they make pizza they way they used to when adults used to be hired. I have not gotten one right takeout order in the last 4 years, nor has the pizza been right - either burned or raw or wrong. Only the greek dressing is good.

No matter what combination of toppings you need, desire, crave, or seek, you can find it here at Dions. Don't like sauce? No problem...just tell them. The pizza is phenomenal and the sandwiches are fabulous. This pizza place doesn't have to offer delivery...they are too busy with walk-in and carry-out to worry about trying to compete with the national chains. The drive to your local Dion's is well worth the trip! Pack up the family, order a pitcher of coke and let the little ones watch as the pizzas are tossed, prepared and baked on slate!
