Editorial Review by Christy Buena – Specialty pizzas, pastas, sandwiches and a children's menu is offered at the restaurant that resembles an old saloon.
We love it! – I for one have never had a bad experience at Old Shawnee Pizza in Shawnee I feel really bad that so many reviews were neg. My husband & I love to eat there & if we can't dine in we always get it to go =) Keep up the good work guys! My advice maybe try the one in Shawnee it's clean & the service is great.
Worst customer service in town – You know I have been eating pizza at this particular resturant since my childern where youngins. They are grown now. This resturant use to go by another name. The night manager is the same one they have had since I first visited this resturant back in the late 80's. However, I had not visited this pizza shop in a long time. I was very unsatisified. I tried to order three different times and all I kept hearing is, "We can't make it like that, We don't do that anymore. I wanted to order just a single pizza considering that I am on a diet and am trying to watch my portion sizes. I have always been able to do that in that past at any time of the night or day, not today. The waitress was extremly rude, then the manager came out and swore up and down they don't even have any mini pizza's available after 3:00 can't make the dough for it in the evening. So, against my better judgement I ordered a small pizza. When it came out grease was dripping off the pizza. I had to ask the waitress for a refill on my drink, the smoke in this place was horrible three employees is all tha was in the resturant and they were all sitting at the table right next to mine in the middle of the resturant chain smoking. There was no non smoking tables available. I would never take a small child in that restaurant and if you have a problem being around smoke as I do this is posiively not the place you want to go. I don't know about the location in Shawnee but I will never go to the Maple Hill location ever again. Oh and one thing I forgot to mention. They couldn't make a mini pizza for me because there was no dough, however, when I was leaving and paying my check there was a mini pizza sitting on the counter all ready cooked hmmmm. Maybe they pick and choose who they will make what for? I will never eat there again.
Avoid at ALL costs! – Old Shawnee Pizza may have a good tasting pizza for a decent, not great, but decent price, but lets take a minute to overview what really goes on from one customers perspective. When dining into a restraunt or any place that serves food, you expect good food right? You may get that, but when I saw all the pizza makers and what may have been a salad maker preparing food without gloves, that is disgusting. Firsthand, I witnessed one of the pizza makers sneezing into there hand, then continues to make the pizza. I don't know about anybody else, but I personally find that absolutely disgusting. Did I mention that this is most likely against some form of health regulations? I believe that if your going to dine into a restraunt, hygiene should at least be kept sanitary. While writing this, I also remember the waitress being quite rude to me over small things, such as asking for a refill. You may have read the previous reviews and thought, 'Hey! This place sounds like a good place to eat,' well, take in the count that they do not prepare food using gloves, the rude customer service, and all of those things, I hope you too realize that this place is unsanitary and should be looked at by a health administrator immediately.
The worst service ever! – The food is great, but that is only if they remember to make it. My son and I decided to eat there for the first time in a year. I expected them to be busy during lunch, but that is no excuse for the awful service. I had a few min. wait for a non-smoking table to open up- no big deal, but the waitress didn't offer to bring us a highchair. I had to hold my son in one arm and try to pull the highchair out of a corner surrounded by other dinners. We make it back to the table and the waitress promptly takes our order and brings my drink and salad right away. So now, I'm waiting for my mimi pizza and another waitress comes over and starts busting our table and started grabbing our food before I could stop her. We wait and wait and then find out that the kitchen forgot to make our pizza. 50 min. passes from the time we arrive at the pizza shop to the time we are finally served our mimi pizza. I don't expect it to be fast food, but that is a long time! The pizza shop is way to understaffed and disorganized. I rated it Below Average only because of the very disappointing service, but the pizza is good. You can always eat at one of the many Pizza Shoppes around town- the service is much better, restraunt is larger and the pizza and lunch specials are almost identical (but that would be because Old Shawnee Pizza used to be a Pizza Shoppe).
A Shawnee Tradition – The service and food are great. And you can't believe how much food you can get for the price. I've grown up going to this restaurant even when it was named differently. Even though I don't live in Shawnee any longer, I still drive to eat there.
best pizza ever – this is the best place ever to go and eat. its a must have when you want to go by yourself or even with the family.
Best in Town! – For the price you get HUGE amounts of toppings. The crust is fairly thin and crispy. Sassy sauce and the BEST salad dressing ever.
