Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great pizza. Not just traditional but unique combinations with a yummy hand tossed style crust or deep dish (allow extra time for this one). I enjoyed the herb and goat cheese. Delicious. My friends had deep dish with sausage and olives (also great) and a...daily special with asparagus. Love the unique combinations. Would definitely recommend and will return on my next visit to the area. The food is 5 star. The restaurant was a little warm and they had no ice for the drinks during our visit but had chilled the glasses quite nicely so for dining in it wasn't quite 5 star on this visit.More

This is by no means a Chicago deep dish, but it is very good and the best deep dish we have found in the area. Their twist on it is commendable. They caramelize the crust a little reminiscent of how the late Burt Katz did...at his pizza place, "Burt's Place", on the North side of Chicago. Their toppings are all fresh and their cheese and sauce is decent. Their standout is their homemade sausage with red pepper flake. It has a really spicy kick to it and a pork sausage flavor vibe that works well with the deep dish in particular. Their garlic bread is stellar! Super fresh bread with a nice, but gentle kick of pepper flake. Any other deep dish or stuffed pizzas we have tried in this part of the state have been Chicago wannabes, and they've failed. "Baked" doesn't try to be Chicago.......and they win because of it.More

The creativity of the speciality pizzas was outstanding! Create your own pizza is also an option. I was there during COVID so the only option was to go, but the atmosphere seemed fun and relaxed. The hardest part of the experience was deciding which pizza...to order--I decided on the potato! So good!More

I have been here numerous times, first time reviewing. Last visit was 2/14/20. I had the super cheese pizza and my wife had the potato pizza. Staff are always welcoming and nice, very attentive. The super cheese pizza is really, really good. I love cheese...and this fit the bill. I did get it w/out bleu cheese. The crust at baked is fantastic. It is crunchy on the outside and fresh and chewy on the inside. My wife loved her pizza as well. We got lucky. They were serving chocolate mousse that night and it was very good. In the past I have had their deep dish, which rivals some Chicago pizzarias. I am not too adventurous when it comes to pizza. We usually get sausage and red pepper. The pizza is always good. The atmosphere is awesome as well. Mismatched tables and chairs, old lps playing in the background, can't beat it.More

We were traveling to Iowa along I-74 when we were about an hour out from Galesburg. My husband suggested we stop there to get dinner. A quick online search of restaurants brought up Baked. I gave them a call and was greeted by an incredibly...helpful gentleman whose name I so wish I could remember! He rattled off all of their specialty pizzas (which they have A LOT) at my request. I asked if it would be a problem to order ahead for dine in and he said it wouldn't be a problem. Upon arrival to this cute downtown area, we easily found Baked. They had a table saved for us and our pizza was out within minutes. It was so good! The restaurant is really neat and they have tons of records that they play throughout the restaurant. If we get back through this area, we'll definitely make another visit!More

I have eaten at Baked many times and have also ordered out from them many times. The pizza is always excellent - great, flavorful crust - not too crisp, not too soft - just right. The toppings are interesting, mostly using local ingredients when possible....Lately I have been especially impressed with the quality and great taste of their salads. The staff is always friendly and helpful. Very highly recommended.More

We heard this place had good pizza and I'm not much of a pizza eater anymore. Between double games at a HS double header we ordered the "standard" sausage and mushroom pizza. Very good. I was impressed by the clientele and the number of people...carrying out. Obviously a local favorite. My wife raved about the crust - almost a sour dough type yet crispy.More

baked offers some of the most unique pizza toppings I’ve ever seen. (One of my favs is their rhubarb!) The food is always amazing, the staff always friendly, and the place is always busy....but always worth any wait. Just hope now!

We ate here on a Thursday night and enjoyed our made-to-order pizzas quite a bit. You order at the counter and the staff bring the pizzas to your table, which are in the separate, somewhat shabby dining area. They didn’t have artichokes listed as a...topping but I inquired about it and was told they did, in fact have some. The amount of toppings were adequate but not nearly as abundant as you get at some of the fast service pizza places in bigger cities. Mismatched old, hard chairs and tables were not particularly inviting but since we weren’t lingering, we managed.More

We recently revisited Baked in Galesburg, after not having the opportunity to be here in over a year. This is still the best Pizza we have found in years of travel. If you are blessed with the opportunity to sample Baked’s fare choose from their...daily specials. The specials will probably not be on your idea of pizza ingredients don’t let this stop you. Try a new mix you will not be disappointed. We look forward to the next chance to revisit Baked.More

I was in town for work today and stopped in for lunch. I had the Italian hot sandwich. It was one if the best sandwiches I've ever had. Delicious ingredients, everything extremely fresh. They use several different fresh veggies mixed with Italian meats and cheese....Kalamata olives, green olives, red and green peppers, mushrooms, fresh greens. The bread was fantastic. Lots of flavor. The staff was very friendly and helpful. What a hidden gem. I really enjoyed the atmosphere as well (local artwork on the walls, quirky seating, great music). Reminded me of a Chicago style restaurant. I'm glad I stopped in for lunch. I will definitely return next time I'm in Galesburg.More

Informal atmosphere. The water bottles have old 45 RPM records with table # painted on the record. Service is friendly and you can customize your pizza. Great olives, kale, etc. and local-sourced meats. Check hours they are open first as they are often closed on...some afternoons. Choice of bottled craft beers. Pizza has medium thin crust.More
