Great service in Gtown 6/30/2008

There is a group of us that eat at the Germantown location on Sat. nights. We typically do not have to wait too long dependeing on how many of us come along. We had 13 this past Sat, and I wanted to say what a pleasant experience it was. The staff was awesome. I had called ahead because of the large party and they were helpful with suggestions. Our Server was precious. She was quick to attend to us, she was very nice and polite and the food came out quick. I often eat lunch at the Midtown location and have never had ""rude"" experience, but maybe not as effecint as the Gtown staff. I have always like the food. Love the menu...Favorite is the Alternative slice with the Hawian salad. My husband loves the Calzones. Pros: Service and food more

Nothing special 3/31/2008

I've just recently moved to Memphis...and I had high hopes for MPC. I had heard great things. I really like the atmosphere...the beer is cold...but other than that, the food is nothing special. I think overall the crust/sauce is pretty bland and I have not been very impressed yet with any of the toppings. Pros: Cold beer, trendy Cons: Average pizza, rude service more

Best Pizza Bar None 2/27/2006

Memphis Pazza Cafe is the best pizza in Memphis, having gorwn up in the North End of Boston, trying to find good pizza in Memphis was a joke, Milanos... garbage compared to Pizza Cafe. The alternative Pizza is fabulous and the calzones are trus italian calzones, lots of cheese and stuffed with what ever you want!!!! We go there at least once a week!!!!!! Pros: Alternative Pizza, Calzones, Diverse crowd Cons: long waits at times more

Very Good Pizza 12/3/2005

The pizza is very good. The service can be a bit lazy sometimes. The atmosphere is very midtown. My only warning is this: Bring a jacket because the place is freezing. Pros: good pizza, hip midtown, good location Cons: too cold, lazy service often more

GREAT PIZZA!! 6/7/2005

Here's the thing about Memphis Pizza Cafe- it's geared more toward the younger crowd and those young at heart. It's not a romantic sit-down dinner. It's not a place to bring a date if you want the complete romance book fairy-tale ending. But the food is AWESOME. It's an excellent place for large groups. This place is not trying and has never tried to be 4 star restaurant. They do pizza, and they do it well. Before you criticize the place maybe you should remind yourself that you went out for some unique, really good, but affordable pizza. If you want all the fluff then go somewhere else and pay extra for it. more

MPC is the Best Pizza 5/11/2004

If you like a thin crust style of pizza, you'll love MPC. This is not a chain restaurant, so the quality varies on occasion, but the thin crust, sauce, cheese and great toppings always bring me back. The ambience is mid-town, the service is OK, the prices are reasonable. The Greek salad is also great and the beer is always cold. Personally, I can't stand Papa Johns style of pizza, so I love MPC. Pizza preferences vary, but for an original tasting pizza, I recommend MPC. Pros: Thin Crust, Good Value, Mid-Town Ambience Cons: , Fair Service, Parking can be tight more

Memphis Pizza Cafe 8/8/2003

Memphis Pizza Cafe has the most terrible service I've ever encountered here in the Memphis area. It takes nearly 45 minutes to receive your food from the time you order, and gaining a waitress's attention is just out of the question. One evening, someone in our party asked to use their telephone. When he came back to the table, he'd told us that the phone wasn't working properly, and it had dialed the police by mistake. He hung the phone up. Five minutes later, the waitress accused my friend of using their phone to call 9-1-1 on purpose, and from then on it was nothing but attitude from the staff. As an adult, I found it absolutely ridiculous. My reccommendation? Go to Pie in the Sky. They're not some hyped-up over trendy joint like Memphis Pizza Cafe, and they actually care if you come back. Pros: Variety of Food Cons: Bad Parking, Bad Service more

fill your eyes and stomach 2/7/2003

We come to memphis to visit a relative and ALWAYS eat here. Its loud you can have a normal conversation and you don't have to worry about your apperance to much.( The people who work there don't either. ) we range in age from 37 to 12 and we all agree its the best pizza. And a fun atmosphere. Pros: choices, value Cons: space, noise more

I think it's pretty good! 11/27/2002

Okay, so I'm not like the world's best critic, but I do know what I do or don't like, and I think Memphis Pizza Cafe is pretty good, despite the company I had at the time. more
