It's been over 15 years since I had Imo's "Pizza" for the first and last time. St. Louis natives are the only thing keeping this business alive.\r

Four of us ended a 3-day road trip from California and arrived in St. Louis starving.

Imo's Pizza is a distinctive taste, and you can almost always tell the transplants; they don't like it. The reason for this is simple; it's not like any other pizza in the country, at least that I've had. Provel cheese is softer than

Just arrived and was told IMO's is the best in town. Sorry to say, if this is the best...than I'll be terminating pizza eating in St Louis for life. This crap tastes like Hot Trash at best. Absolute garbage. I feel sorry for those who have never had real Pizza like in Boston or New York.

This was the worst experience of my life when it comes to eating Pizza. The sause was made of puke. The rest of the stuff looked the same. The crust was awful tasted like cardboard and a really low grade of cardboard at that. How can you call this pizza. The people making this stuff should be arrested for impersonating a pizza maker. I'm from Cincinnati where we have real pizza. I'm new to the St. Louis area, I hope all area restaurants aren't this bad. Hey St Louis drive to Cincinnati for Pizza its only a 6 hour drive but you will taste real pizza and not the stuff you have been lied to all this time THAT AINT PIZZA DUDE. IMO'S PIZZA SUCKS

Cons: looks like yak, tastes like yak, makes you yak

I apologize for those who've grown up in St. Louis and have been brainwashed into thinking that sub-standard food is normal, and eating a "local tradition" makes for a regional hit-maker. Imo's tastes the same way it looks... like a poor person's attempt at making pizza out of the scraps left over in the cubbard, when there's more month at the end of the money.
It just looks nasty; tastes like the cardboard box it comes in, and is much too expensive for what one gets. Honestly; I have not run across too many "real" pizza places I care for, here in St. Louis. I have been tempted to try some of the more "Italianesque" places on the Hill. At least I know those are more genuine than Imo's, depression-era, nasty attempt at pizza.
Then again; success is having a product and convincing thousands that it's the best, local thing going, so you might as well be a loyal consumer too.
Save your money; not worth the drive, the abuse to your taste buds, or the punishment to your stomach.

Imo's is a long standing tradition in St. Louis. While there are many disputes about crust, Imo's is about the only pizza left that uses the real sausage w/anise in it. No fillers or preformed meat there. What is disgusting is that people form New York who write their reviews spell disgusting disscusting...get outta here!

This is a St. Louis favorite. I LOVE IT! If it were so gross their wouldn't be one every 3 miles every were in the city and counties. The crust is good, not dry or cardboard like. I like thin crust because you can taste the toppings more and I'm all about the toppings. The cheese is amazing and the seasoning is phenomenal. Not to mention the people that work their are always so friendly. It's wonderful. I think I'll get it for lunch.

Pros: Toppings, crust, CHEESE, and all over flavor

Cons: It's a little expensive

We used to have an Imo's Pizza in Springfield, IL.....needless to say, it didn't last long. Why?! Because it wasn't very good at all. Personally speaking, it wasn't the WORST pizza I ever had, but it was certainly far from the best. That cheese they put on it was terrible (provel?! wtf is that?!?!). Almost tasted like somebody threw up on a pizza. I'll give it some credit though...at least it had flavor! LOL, it wasn't bland at all.

Provel is just wrong and it doesn't belong anywhere near a pizza crust.

I had no idea of it's existence until we moved here a few years ago and were jonesing for a pizza. So innocently I took a bite and the alarm bells of upset and disappointment rang through my skull. Confused and unhappy, I walked up to the counter person and inquired as to what kind of cheese was on my pizza. He replied, "Provel". I'm like, "whazza Provel?"

Because we bought it, I ate it and as a result, Imo's taught me everything that I needed to know. I shudder in the grocery now when I walk past the deli section. Big blogs of white extruded cheese (reminds me of brains) wrapped in plastic...brrrr....

I've eaten pizza all over this country. I've eaten it in Italy. I can honestly say that this is the worst pizza that I've ever eaten. Ever. And I'd basically rather starve than eat that cheese in any form.

I have no problem with the locals enjoying it. Eat up, Saint Louis! But this is never going to fly elsewhere (hint to those dreaming of franchises on the west coast). I say that with all sincere seriousness.

We all have foods that we grew up with that bring back fond memories and good times with friends. Foods that other people don't understand. Please know that this pizza fits the bill for native St Louisians who love IMOs. It's your thing. It's your culture. It's your little piece of happy. But if you're not from 'here', it's just not right.

Pros: Nice people, as usual for STL

Cons: The pizza

.

The square beyond compare. I think Imos ruined all other pizzas for me. The thin crust give lets the toppings explode with all of their flavor. And,, of course, the cheese is addictive. If I moved I think I would have to have it shipped in to whereever I was. I don't understand why they experiment with thicker crusts or other menue items. Why fill up on that when you've got the gourmet dish right in front of you. And it's just as good in the morning for breakfast. Perfect to eat in the car as your dodging through traffic. All in all, just a true St. Louis classic.

I grew up in South City, and have ate this pizza all throughout my life, I no longer live in St louis, but make multiple trips all year to go eat here, and also have it fed-ex'd at least once a month. Ive tried all sorts of pizza and traveled through many states and have one conclusion for you. This is absolutely the best pizza i have ever had.. Do not go in there and think this is going to taste like dominoes or out of the brick oven in boston or new york.. This is St Louis style pizza, and it is nothing like you have ever tried before. I recommend it to anyone and everyone. Give it a shot, and i really recommend the locations in the City.. i.e Forest Park or South Delor. Some of the newer Franchises havent mastered it the same as the older ones. To make this short, it is the best pizza i have ever had.

Pros: The best flavor and pizza.

Cons: its slightly expensive, looking around 20-30$ for 3-4 people.

Only someone born and raised in ST Louis could stomach IMO's. I grew up in NY but I've lived all over the country and eaten many types and flavors of pizza. IMO's is just plain disscusting. I wouldn't even call it pizza!!.. it's like something your parents would make you as a kid because they couldn't afford to by real pizza..

Pros: cheap

Cons: Crust, Cheese, Sauce

.

An Imo's pizza...

- Crust: no yeast or sugar used, baking powder and dark corn syrup instead. It is often referred to as a 'cracker' crust but it is NOT crunchy or dry. It's probably called that due to the look of it rather than the taste or texture.

If you picture a 'New York' style thin crust you picture people using two hands or even holding the slice above their head and lowering it into their mouths. 'Saint Louis' style stays put. If you hold slice from the middle of the pizza it will droop a bit but you can handle it with one hand.

- Sauce: traditional pizza sauce w/ Thyme, Oregano, and Basil but with approx 1 tablespoon cane sugar added per 24 ounces of sauce.

- Cheese: 'Provel', NOT Provelone. It is a local cheese but you can make your own by combining I cup White Cheddar, half cup Swiss, half cup Provelone (all shredded) and 1 teaspoon 'Liquid Smoke' flavoring. Toss off and on incorporate flavors over an hour or so and let the cheese reach room temp. (the liquid smoke will artificially give the cheese that 'bite' flavor that naturally comes by aging the cheese, it's not used in authentic Provel)

People not in the STL area who are curious could look in their local supermarkets for a 'Maria & Sons' or 'Mama Lucia's' brand frozen pizza. They are based in STL but I think they sell nationwide? They come wrapped in clear plastic with a paper label on the inside, not in a box. That will give you a good idea of the type of crust, cheese, sauce used at Imo's, not so much the toppings. Certainly not as good but a decent representaion

Pros: Great pizza, just not what is thought of as traditional pizza

Cons: Because of the thin crust it doesn't stay hot very long

.

Other than the crust, the sauce, and the cheese it's not bad. OK -- the toppings are not very good either. The crust -- which St. Louisans call "thin" but is nothing like neapolitan thin crust (the original type and still the best) -- is basically like stale matzoh. The sauce is boiled for about a month an a half, has too many dried herbs and sugar -- is horrific. The "cheese" -- well, there's a reason why no one outside St. Louis ever eats provel. Gluey, cloying -- blech. It's like someone really wanted pizza but lacked the ingredients. I teach at a local college and can tell who is a native simply by asking if they like Imo's. I warn the non-natives.

.

Pizza makers use cheese! Granted, we are recently new to St Louis and had no idea of the "cardboard-crusted, "provel-loaded" "pizza-like slick" of a dining ambush we were about to walk into.

The good thing was that it was a relatively cheap mistake.

Men, do not take your recently re-located wife out for "pizza" here.

We recently went to St Louis and having looked at the '10 best pizza places in St Louis' decided to try Imo's. We ordered from the website and picked it up from the store. The website did not mention a crust type, nor did it mention cheese choices. We were so hungry and couldn't wait for some cheesy, crusty goodness. As soon as we got it in the car we opened the box, expecting some substantial crust and mozzarella cheese. To our extreme dismay we discovered extremely thin crust. Upon our first taste of this 'pizza' we discovered that our disappointment didn't stop at the crust. Imo's pizza tastes like thinly sliced cardboard with spaghetti o sauce, topped with a slice of off-brand velveeta-like cheese. If that sounds delicious to you, go for it. If not, stay far FAR away from this--I have a feeling somewhere the original creator of pizza is rollin' in their grave. True quality pizza, ha:(

I live in Southern California, but grew up in St. Louis. I'm actually considering opening a franchise here. After 20 plus years of living here, I've never found a pizza I truly enjoy. The pizza just melts in your mouth and the thin crust is to die for. I've read some of the comments that say the pizza doesn't taste good or it's horrible. I say to those people that they don't know what true quality pizza is. Anytime I'm in the city, I must have Imo's or I feel the trip was wasted. I'm actually considering flying out to visit family in the next couple of weeks just to have that pizza. Think of the cost for the tripif it doesn't say this is the best pizza around, then nothing will!!! 05/11/06

OK, all of you poeople with the bad attitudes. It seems as though the people who say they don't like Imos are people who tried it, thinking it was going to have that traditional taste and consistency of every other pizza. Well, if you go into it wanting traditional pizza, then, yes you will be dissappointed, but if you go into it knowing that it is nothing like traditional, then you wiil appreciate it much more. Just know before tasting that it's not like what you're used to. Also, St. Louisans love all kinds of pizza. Hey, like any other St. Louisan, sometimes I'm in the mood for Fortels, Pizza Hut, Dominos, Unos, etc. when I'm looking for that traditional style, but I frequent Imos the most because I love it. And since when is cheese sticking to the roof of your mouth a bad thing? Are you crazy?

i am currently in so cal... which has to be the capital of the worst pizza ever... unless u like thick crust. they use horrible mozz. cheese and no one knows about provel or tru thin crust. Yea imos may have slipped a little over the years but you learn to appreciate imos once u go to a different part of country. notice darn near everyone that comes to stl and writes on this says good about it, just the people who lived here long time and has noticed its slipped say negative things. provel is the best, and so is thin crust.... true pizza

Wow... "I could say it's melt in your mouth", but it's melted before if ever gets that far. The sauce has absolutely no taste. Really folks, I couldn't care less if this is what you grew up around (so did I), but this is NOT pizza. I have no idea what it is. It sort of reminds me of some really bad appetizer cheese and crackers slop you might get at a New Year's Eve party at someone's house. Expand your horizons. Try something else. Virgins always think their first partner is the best until they try the next one.

Pros: Probably not fatal, good driveway sealer

Cons: tastes bad

I've lived in Dunedin (Tampa Bay) Florida for almost 15 years and miss Imo's SOOOOO bad! There was an Imo's in Tampa for a short while some 12 years ago but they closed it. :-( Anyone know of any plans to open another one down here, or any comparable pizza anywhere down here? I've gone so far as to buy half-baked pies when I'm up there visiting, freeze them until I'm ready to fly back here, then tie the boxes together with string and carry them on the plane! Imo's is the BEST pizza my husband and I have ever tasted and even our 9 year old can't wait to have some at Christmas time while we are up there!!!

The pizza is awful and I don't understand why people from St. Louis rave about it. The crust tastes like cardboard and wat they call cheese is just gross!!!

Imo's pizza is garbage. The crust is like a thin piece of cardboard with no flavor and the toppings are over spiced. My wife and I through most of it in the trash. Stay away from this one.

Imo's is the best pizza ever and they have wonderful lunch specials. I work in an office of about fifteen employees and we all love Imo's we order it about once every week. It is awesome we usually have a pretty long and confusing order and they almost never mess it up.

I am from St. Louis but now living in Alabama. When I come home on vacation I make sure I get some of that great pizza a couple of times. I wish we had one in Alabama. I am tired of the same old pizza joints.

Imo's pizza is the best i'd ever tasted! it is very unique. love the thin crust and the sauce and the special cheese has more flavor than mozerella cheese does. we stayed in st louis for 3 nights and had to order Imo's every night at our hotel. Imo's is just not the same old pizza, it is the yummiest. thank you st louis! any chance of bringing this mouthwatering pizza north?

I love St Louis style pizza and for the first five years in St Louis, Imo's was all I had and I loved it. I've since found more 'Mom and Pop shops' that concentrate on making great pizza rather than quantities of pizza.

Imo's pizza is good if eaten right away, but the crust loses flavor when microwaved or sit's in the box too long. The service is as good as any other pizza delivery chain... so it's nothing special. The ambiance is better than most chains (has surfaces to eat on), but delivery is obviously their market.

If you're simply looking for a St louis style pizza delivered to your door, you don't have much choice... It's Imo's; but if you want great St Louis style pizza you're better off calling one of the other many places around town and picking it up yourself.

Imo's has the worst pizza I have ever eaten. I love pizza from all over the USA. I have had authentic New York Style, Chicago Style, etc and this St. Louis style pizza is the worst. I lived in St. Louis for 2 years and realized after my first Imo's Pizza that I would never return. My wife liked their sandwiches but could not stand the pizza either. When we wanted pizza, we went to Joanie's.

It's a testimony to the power of blind allegiance and denial that St. Louisans have. This is, bar none, the worst pizza available. I'm including the grade school lunchroom and frozen Tombstone. There is virtually no sauce, the crust is like a saltine and the cheese is a disgusting processed blend (another St. Louis original). Also, if you don't like Imo's, St. Louisans take it personally. Its no wonder why St. Louis style pizza hasn't taken the country by storm.

It is like saying McDonalds has the best hamburgers. The pizza is so thin it is always cold. It is like eating a piece of cardboard.

Having spent two years in Italy, just north of Naples, the home of what some consider the best pizza in Italy, I can say that Imo's pizza is a disgrace to pizza making. The "cheese", which resembles a white glue-like cheese product, truly detracts from a descent crust and mediocre toppings. Fortels is not bad pizza, 6-7 on a 10 scale. Pizza means different things to different people. As someone who has traveled the world and eaten pizza everywhere, I can say with a great degree of authority that the cheese product on Imo's pizza makes it a truly inferior pizza, but eat up St. Louis. Bad food doesn't slow anyone down here.

I am in the Marine Corps and have spent most of my enlistment halfway around the world. When I get to come home to Saint Louis, Imo's pizza is at the top of the list of foods I must eat! The crust is perfectly thin (much like the first pizza crust, which was unleavened bread.) The sauce has a great zest to it. The cheese, which is not provelone but a cheese invented in Saint Louis called provel, is the best part! To those of you who say this isn't real pizza...last time I checked, pizza consisted of crust, tomato sauce, and white cheese. Yep, it's all there. I guess it's human nature to reject things that are different from the norm, but I commend Imo's for not making the same old pizza you can find anywhere else. It's number 1 for a reason!

Don't get me wrong, I understand it's a St. Louis favorite. Everytime a sibling of mine comes back to town--they've "gotta have Imo's." For me, however, I cannot stand the cheese and sauce. I think in ranking, yes it definitetly belongs in the top 5--top 3 even, but there are two that far surpass this pizzeria.

I have lived in St. Louis now for 20 years and I learned to avoid Imo's. I think better pizza could be made by kindergarteners! Maybe it already is! Imo's somehow lucked out into being a St. Louis "tradition", otherwise anywhere else they would have gone out of business. As for being the best pizza in St. Louis, it only proves that St. Louisans don't know what good pizza really is. Now, beer and baseball we DO know.

I have eaten pizza coast to coast and when living in St. Louis I was excited to try what has been known as St. Louis Style Pizza. Never in all of my years have I tasted such a foul pie. The Provel cheese is like melted plastic that scalds the roof of your mouth in the first ten seconds and becomes hard as a rock after that. The crust tastes worst than the box it comes in and I have never experienced such bland sauce. If you want real pizza in St. Louis - go to NY or Chicago!

If you like cardboard with sauce the consistency of tomato soup and provel cheese that sticks to the back of your teeth, go right ahead and go to Imo's. If you want take-out pizza that's a good value AND delicious, go to CiCi's. Their all-you-can-eat buffet (all day!) is just 3.99, drink not included, and their take-out prices are incredible. Where else can you get 2 giant one-topping pizzas PLUS your choice of a large dessert or cheese garlic bread for just $15.99?

In Short
Plenty of St. Louis memorabilia adorns the red and green walls. St. Louis-style pizza, perfected by Imo's, is oven-fresh, extra-thin and crispy and comes cut into squares. On the deluxe pizza, green peppers, mushrooms,…
