Gone downhill over the years... – I used to go to Waldos every weekend but have stopped since their expansion. The pizza is as good as ever, but the ambiance has changed. There are too many large parties, especially post-sports game parties where parents think it is appropriate to bring 20 kids in to eat. Minsky's on Main does not cater to these kinds of parties and they now earn my business. It's a shame because Phil is a nice guy but he needs to take control of his business better. Parents - take your kids to Pizza Hut!!
Oh Yeah! – Finally, a GREAT pizza place our family can agree on! We used to argue over NY or chicago. Their hand tossed siuts the bill for all. Fresh, gooey, delicious! The ONLY pepperoni I will eat! Sandwiches are top notch too. Good optoins for kids-garlic cheese bread instead of sacrificing half your pizza to "just cheese." GREAT value!
How a pizza place should be – The selections for the pizza could be well over 1000 different combinations. The pizza is great when you make the right combinations. I've only had 1 bad pizza and it was just not a good mix of items for me, roasted garlic is was the problem. (i like garlic as a accent of flavor not as the main flavor). And if you like beer try the crimson and blue with a chicken,artichoke and basil pizza its a perfect match made in heaven. You can get anything from Don Perignon to pabst blue. All in all this is a great place to go.
This popular pizzaria is well worth the wait with authentic, delicious pies and over 80 beer selections. – In Short
The atmosphere is quirky with children's artwork proudly displayed from the children's museum. First you choose your crust. There's the thin St. Louis style, deep-dish Chicago style, and medium thick, traditional hand tossed crust. Next, pick from all of the traditional toppings plus a few not-so-common ingredients like zucchini, sliced almonds and eggplant. Kansas City's own Mendolia's Italian sausage is featured as well as a host of local microbrews, domestics and imports.
waldo good – There is no oter pizza in the city where you can get as many unusual toppings on a pizza. My favorite pie is Sun dried tomatoes, artichoke hearts, pineapple, and cream cheese.
Confused – I simply can't understand the praise for this pizza. I have to agree with onewhoknows on this one. I've been too the lunch buffet a few times with co-workers, and have always disliked the pizza. I think more folks should spend a week in Chicago and visit the great pizza establishments there. If you still prefer Waldo Pizza after that, I'll buy you lunch there!
Better than Chicago's Chicago style! – After recently visiting Chicago and trying out their famous Chicago style pizza, I found that Kansas City had an even better Chicago Style Pizza here in Missouri. I had been to Waldo's once before I went to Chicago and three times since I have been back and nothing beats this place. They have soooo many toppings and cheeses to choose from and the atmosphere is nice~just like a oizza place was meant to be. Ever since I had Waldo's Pizza I can't eat it any where else no other pizza tastes good after you have Waldo's!!!
best of the midwest – The best part about Waldo Pizza is the owner. I have been a customer there for several years now, but when I first began eating there I met Phil. He seems to be a connoisseur of fine beers and so I told him about my favorite. The next time I was there he had gotten some in for me. Talk about customer service! The pizza is great (my favorite thin crust in KC), the salad bar is good, and the beer is fantastic. Does attract families with kids which I find a little noisy at times.
Best Pizza in KC – Best Pizza place in KC. Used to be the only place to get real "st. louis" style (imo's) in town. They also serve "deep dish" and "traditional" crusts. Great salad bar and table top pac-man. Good famliy place, go later to aviod the kids.
2nd best in KC – Waldo is second only to D'Bronx. It's certainly better than papa John's. While papa john's is good and definately the best fast pizza, Waldo is ahead of it overall.
