Many options, one result 4/26/2012

You can get pizza, breadsticks, subs, sandwiches, and whatever else is typical in an american pizzeria, but no matter what you chose, you can be sure you'll also get diarrhea... seriously, unbaked pizza? more

Abandon Hope All Ye Who Enter this Joint 4/15/2012

First things first, the restaurant was not clean the day we were there. The pizza, in our opinion, was overpriced slop. The cold cheese gimmick is a real hoot. What's hiding underneath all the cold cheese? We ordered a 28-cut and actually pitched sixteen pieces in the garbage as we left. Please beware, this place charges 50 cents per topping--PER SLICE. Ha Ha Ha. Who do they think they're kidding? The customers on the day we were there were mostly cigarette smoking, tattoo rag tags of Pittsburgh's underside. Don't let the exterior appearance of this joint fool you. It looks nice on the outside, but the inside is a dump. Save your time and money. There are better places for pizza in Pittsburgh. This is not a good place for a family to eat. more

crazy, good pizza 1/8/2012

Crazy prices for toppings 12/9/2011

I ordered the tray with 30 slices with pepperoni, xtra cheese, and black olives the girl said $38.98, i said ok when I arrived to pick it up the girl said we made a mistake in your price and i said yea i thought it was a little high for a pizza and she said no its $88 and change and I said no way am I paying thatb for a pizza and she said well we can make a whole new one for you with just cheese and I said well do that then, so it cracks me up they would throw a pizza away because I refused to pay that price because they quoted me a different price which was crazy and just the cheese pizza came to $39.00 which is also too much, but I was done arguing I just wanted to get out of there. oh and I stopped at Giant Eagle and picked up pepperoni, sliced black olives, and cheese and paid $6 and still had some left over more

Mediocre at Best 10/17/2011

As mentioned in other reviews, there is a gross overabundance of cheese, some of which is piled on after the baking as are the toppings. Different and probably good if you're into that sort of topping. The mushrooms look and taste as if they were opened from a can and drained, nothing else. The worst part was paying over $60 for 30 pieces of pizza with one and a third toppings (10 pep, 10 mush, 10 pep and mush). A tray of 28 plain costs under $30, I find it hard to believe that the toppings cost an additional $30, but our bill for 30 pieces with 1 and 1/3 toppings was over $61. Cons: PRICE, cold generic toppings, way too much cheese Pros: Can't think of one right off, it's nothing special Pros: more

Can't beat Beto's anytime, anywhere! 8/8/2011

Sorry about ""stale saltines"" review. Guess they didn't grow up Beto's and therefore haven't developed a taste for it! Must be a fan of stale saltines though! I grew up eating Beto's since my high school days (late 60's/early 70's). The shop and parking lot were full then as they are now! I left Pgh in 1971 when I joined the Marine Corps and I am still working for the Marine Corps 40 years later and have been all around the world. Not neccessarily comparing Beto's pizza to other places in states and around the world - but for me it's simply the best and brings back many memories. Everytime I return to Pgh I eat/takeout Beto's for myself and my Pgh family. I have even returned to VA with Beto's in my vehicle for the Pgh'ers that live near me. This becomes a hazard while driving becuase all I do is smell the pizza and I want to eat it during my 5 hour drive. I have to order extra so I have enough for my displaced Pgh'ers in VA. Botton line - up front (BLUF) - YOU CAN""T BEAT BETO's ANYTIME ANYWHERE!!! more

I would rather eat a box of stale saltines. 6/9/2011

Honestly, stale saltines would be preferable to this horrible excuse for pizza. I actually created an account here just so I could advise you to never waste your time or money on Beto's Pizza. I've never felt the need to write a review like this until now. Every negative thing you'll read in the other reviews is absolutely accurate. You've heard about the terrible cold, canned toppings, the disgusting, cheap cheese, the flavorless, cardboard-like crust and the awful sauce and I can guarantee the truth of these descriptions. I can sum up my feelings in four words: Go to Fiori's instead. It's about a five minute drive from Beto's and it's the closest thing Pittsburgh has to an authentic, quality pizza place. I took my eight year old niece to Beto's and she couldn't eat it. She was disgusted. Her review? She said, ""This isn't pizza."" more

This is the real deal! 4/18/2011

I grew up in Beechvew and as a kid I would walk down the hill with money I earned selling newspapers to get my Beto's fix. I ended up living in other cities up and down the east coast for the past thirty years. Now I am back in the ""Burg"" and living in Dormont. I can't tell you how much I missed Beto's. Sometime over the years a resturant will loose it's focus and the food suffers. This is not the case here, it is as good as it always has been. This is THE pizza in my eyes. more

I wish I could rate it higher!! 4/10/2011

I was born and raised in Pittsburgh. Most people will tell you that Fiori's is better. I HIGHLY disagree. I love, love, LOVE Beto's pizza. It's so unique. I love the unmelted cheese and the chunky sauce and the crisp crust. I moved to Los Angeles a while back. We have everything under the sun out here except a place that serves pizza like Beto's. Hands down, and by far my all time favorite pizza. It's not for everyone, in fact you either love it or hate it. I happen to LOVE it!! more

excellent 3/31/2011

Don't listen to anyone on this site. Beto's is a pittsburgh tradition. People either love it or hate it, but dont be some loser who goes on to websites and bashes a business! have some class! Beto's is constantly busy, so pizza sometimes takes awhile and 15-20 minutes is not a long time to wait people!! My advice is to just GO there! DONT take anyones OPINION, make your own. the people that bad mouth places on sites like these are miserable or because they had 1 bad experience. if you read thru most of the reviews are good, and in the restaurant business, YOU CAN'T PLEASE EVERYONE! BETO'S IS THE BEST! more

Stay away! 2/27/2011

This place is a joke! A very bad gimmick at best. Service was terrible. Rude is the best way to describe it. The seating area was dirty and most of the tables were broken. We ordered an italian hoagie and four slices of pizza. The hoagie arrived pretty quick but hardly had any meat on it and was soaked in grease. What meat it did have was cheap with no flavor. We then waited almost 20 minutes for our half cooked pizza to arrive. What we got was some cardboard, tomato sauce from a can, cheap toppings, and a pound of cold cheese. Worst pizza ever! You can find better in a high school cafeteria! more

This pizza made me make poopies 2/17/2011

I don't know if it was a combination of the sauce or the cold cheese but I had to make poo poo for half hour after eating it. The cheese really sits like a brick in your stomach. It's just too much. They also let blacks in there so be careful more

Best pie in the Burgh 12/16/2010

The pizza is unique and the best pizza I've ever had. My friends and I drive about 40 min (traffic issues) for this pizza. i've been eating here for at least 15 years and it is awesome. more

Great food 11/6/2010

Pizza is good but the sandwiches are awesome more

God Pizza 10/22/2010

I thought the pizza was very good. Shocked by the amount of cheese but I soon like the taste. I have tried a few pizza places in the Pittsburgh area and still looking for my favorite. If I was to pick now, I would take Sam's Pizza in Canonsburg more

Great tasting pizza 10/19/2010

This pizza in my opinion is the best pizza I have ever had. i have probably tried at least 100 different places, everyone in the pittsburgh area and Betos rocks. I could eat it everyday. I ate it for 26 days straight in 2009. Im addicted. more

Try it with an open mind 6/6/2010

I was really leery of cold cheese on hot pizza, but it was pretty good. The crust is the best thing about this pizza. It's really crispy. If it weren't, the cold cheese thing would not work at all. I thought the sauce was VERY good, mild, not too sweet, with chunks of tomatoes. I'm a big fan of pizza toppings, but this is not the place to get them, get plain cheese, you'll be glad you did. Not the best pizza in the world, but I'd definitely go back. Pros: really crispy crust, self serve pop Cons: seedy looking staff, restaurant is on the dirty side more

more addictive than crack ,betos attack 1/31/2010

A Slice of Heaven 10/30/2009

I have lived everywhere in the U.S. all my life. Both my parents were born and raised in Pittsburgh. At least 4 times a year, my family and I make the 8 hour drive...and Beto's is ALWAYS our first stop!! The cold cheese mixed with the warm thick crust causes this amazing and refreshing flavor to explode in your mouth. The sauce is thick and full of tomato chunks like real, homemade pizza sauce is meant to be. And at about $1.50 a slice, you never break your bank getting a good mouthfull taste of Pittsburgh. Pros: Amazing food!, cheap prices Cons: Parking more
