This is the best of the Tommy's Pizza locations and Tommy's is the best pizza in town. They bake the pizza quickly so the crust is crispy, but the toppings are still--somehow--fresh. Go for the all-the-way pizza (with anchovies, if you

My dad has been taking the family here for years. When going to Ohio State, my father even worked here for a short while. Nothing much has changed. The same thin crust, Italian style pizza which has been duplicated for years, same building inside/out. But my most recent visits to Tommy's has bothered me.

My girlfriend & I visited over the weekend. Our red-headed server (who has waited on us before) was extremely rude. When my gf asked for a side of ranch dressing to go along with her pizza, she wanted to charge her a $1.00. When she mentioned we'd been going for years and had never been charged a fee before, she snapped back, "well the other servers must have not been doing there job then, cuz if it was me, I would have charged you!"

This left a bad taste in our mouth, literally. We are dedicated customers who have families who eat there regularly. She's not a new employee either.

When leaving, we did not tip her well. I think we left her .25 and my gf even thought THAT was too much. (She didn't even refill our drinks until we begged her, too...then she brought me back the wrong type of drink).

Upon paying at the cash register, our total was $54.62. The bill was only $26. So we had that corrected. When my gf got her credit card statement, it said $31. Puzzled, she called Tommy's Pizza and they told her they add 20% to your credit card bill (WITHOUT TELLING YOU) until it clears your account and if you don't have that money in your account at the time (the bill plus 20%) it will overdrawal your account and that's how people like us give them an earful!

So to conclude...Tommy's has GREAT pizza...but that's about it. The bathrooms are smaller than those on a DC-10 airliner, the parking is HORRIBLE, you may get billed more than the amount you agreed to (without anyone telling you), and the waitress may be a total bit**.

Tommy's is probably the best pizza in Columbus. They add just the right amount of sauce, and the crust is the perfect combination of crispy and chewy, with perfect airbubbles every so often. Their cheese pizza is probably the best . . . toppings are unnecessary. The pepperonis are small with charred edges, and depending upon your preferences may make the pizza too greasy. The atmosphere is perfect for a college campus . . . nothing fancy, just the basics of OSU decor and a couple of video games. I make a stop at Tommy's everytime I come through Columbus.

Rushing back to CMH for a flight home, I chanced stopping in Tommy's on East Broad. Excellent meatball sub and couple of the nicest guys behind the counter. Fast, courteous, knowledgable, they got me to the airport in time for my flights. Lived in CMH for 10 years and there were 100's of great pizza joints, but Tommy's subs are GREAT. I know now the pizza must be terrific too. I return to CMH often and will make Tommy's a regular stop on future trips. Sure that the campus location is good for crowd watching too!

I have no earthly idea how anybody in the Columbus area could pick any pizza other than Tommy's as the best in Columbus. I don't live in Columbus now, but I thought it was the best when I grew up there and I have never tasted any pizza anywhere in the world (literally) that was better!!!!!!! Tommy's is the first place I stop when I get back to Columbus and my family would throw me out of the house if I didn't bring a Tommy's Pizza back with me if I go to Columbus by myself (even cold it is still the best!!!) My only complaint is that it is only in Columbus. Tommy's is absolutely the BEST PIZZA, PERIOD!!!!!!!! ANYWHERE!!!!!!!!

I have been going to Tommy's forever. The first place I ate when I moved back to Columbus was Tommy's. Their pizza and hot Italian Subs are the best! Dont forget Tommy's new location at RT. 161, just north of Riverside Drive. I give them a 10 for consistently good pizza and subs!

From the time I was a little girl, I've always remembered Tommy's Pizza. As a little girl, Tommy's was the best pizza around. Now that I'm grown, it's always great when we were back in town to get some of that wonderful pizza. As a matter of fact, when my brother-in-law got married, my mother even sent Tommy's Pizza as a gift to the bride and groom for their rehersal dinner. Tommy's Pizza was a favorite of my Grandmother's, and my parents. Now, it's a favorite of my in-law's and my children as well. Of everywhere I've traveled, nothing compares to "coming home to a Tommy's Pizza".

Cons: 1 location I know of

Tommy's makes the [pie the way it should be made. A thin crispy crust, flavorful sauce, and the right amount of whatever topping you decide on. I've been eating pizza for probably 35 years and have found only a couple that compare to Tommy's. Thank God my parents only took me to Tommy's as a child, otherwise I might not like pizza today.

Pros: service, great pizza, good value

Tommy's is absolutely the best pizza... period. Of the locations in town, I prefer the Dublin restaurant. If you order from the Lane Ave store, make sure you ask for it to be cooked in the old oven (its more "seasoned"). Always consitently delicious. Pepperoni is a must. And the Onion, Tomato, Bananna Pepper pie is wonderful. I always ask for "well done".

Tommy's Pizza used to have great pizza, great service, and all-around great everything. The Tommy's Pizza of today stick with the great pizza, and is still great, but the current service is somewhat lacking.

I've been driving from my home in Kentucky (300 miles) for 35 years to eat Tommy's pizza. It's the best anywhere outside New York or Chicago. Their Italian subs are the best anywhere. I usually get mine from the Hamilton Rd location but I have found the quality to be pretty much the same at all locations. Nobody puts more topping on the pie than Tommy's.

There are many pizza places out there, and sure they can get the job done. But for me, a really great tasting pizza has to have passion...that is to say it's "irresistable"!! Tommy's Pizza is the place for me with it's local old famliy recipe that includes
the best tasting crust and fresh ingredents served wall to wall (edge to edge). I have tried diffrent pizza resturants and carry-out all over the Columbus area, Tommy's is terrific pizza.

Supercalifragalisticexpialidocious!

Tommy's Pizza is truly a Columbus Classic! Thick, crisp bubbly crust, aromatic, flavorful sauce - cheese that trails from your lips - this my friends is Pizza at it's best! The surroundings are spartan, and purely Buckeye but I can think of no better place for a pint, some pie and the Buckeyes!

MMMMmmmmmmmm.....Pizza......
