I like this place to get a slice of pizza and a drink. They have a good selection of pizza by the slice and seem to always pick the largest slice available. The pizza is NY style (thin crust) and is very good. It's not fancy but a welcoming ambiance and great service.

Order a large pizza with pepperoni and sausage. Had a thin crust and was greasy but so good. They made the pizza and forgot to make my calzone. No discount or anything given even though I had to go ask for my calzone and they had completely forgotten to make it. Once it arrived my family was already done with... More

this place has become a Carlsbad regular stop. with all the overpriced restaurants in the area, this place is still a bargain. there are several pizza slice options available here, and they all look good. i had the white one (forget whats on it) but its excellent.

If you're looking for fast service, good thin-crust pizza, and a modest selection of craft beers, Knockout is the place to go. I've rarely had to wait for a table for two, and the casual setting provides good people-watching if you choose a seat adjacent to the sidewalk. Although the pizza is of course available to go, I think it's... More

New York style pizza. Oh...so awesome. On vacation this is the first stop. It's really a hole in the wall, Main Street Carlsbad, pizzas are already made & you choose the pizza you want out of a case of ready made pizzas. Sounds horrible but it isn't. They pop it in the oven to warm it & it comes out... More

Great New York style pizza. Sausage looked hand cut and was delicious. So were the other toppings. Small house salad was good for 4 adults. Only downer was delivery time was lengthy and they forgot the salad dressing. But we would go back for sure.

I am a thin crust pizza lover and this crispy crust is perfect. Had to try their calzone for the first time at Knockout and it was fantastic, enough for two. Take the kids, very affordable and just good pizza.
