This was not a good visit . The owner took our order he was pleasant and accommodating. The wings were hard and the pizza was cold and not good. I've eaten good food from there before . Don't know what happened that night.

Dear Sue, Sorry your order was not good this time. Wondering if you got delivery this time, and if so, did the delivery take too long? If so, sorry. A delivered pizza stays hot in our pizza bags for a pretty good while but not way long. On our last weekend open for the season, Cruiser weekend Oct 6th- 8th,... More

Arrived in Ocean City on a cold rainy Oct Saturday. We stopped for a pizza for dinner and found out it was their last night of the season. The owner was present and explained he made his own sauce and dough. Seriously it was the best pizza. But it is not just the food that is great, a lady who... More

We ordered a jumbo pizza one night which was delicious and extremely reasonable. About a week later we stopped by again. This time we had pasta with meatballs and fettuccine Alfredo with chicken. They were complete meals with salad and garlic knots on the side. The portions were very large, both pasta dishes were scrumptious, great service and the cost... More

This is Jim Hofman owner of Pino`s Pizza in Ocean City MD. We do not serve pasta or have sit down, so I know you reviewed the wrong place. What`s the name of the place you were trying to review? maybe you picked the wrong "Pinos"?, My "Pino`s Pizza" location is in Ocean City Md. But I`m glad everything was... More

Our order was large and a bit complicated. Pino's got the order right and all the food came out at the same time ready for our pick up. Portions were generous and feed was delicious.

I've been staying at 85th street the past few years and we always get Pino's Pizza. It is a few blocks away and it is probably one of the best pizza's I have ever had. I usually get a classic pepperoni. The pepperoni turn upwards and are crisp. The sauce is fantastic. Mr. Pino knows his sauce! My parents loved... More

Pino's pizza was essentially across the street from my condo, and I had placed an order on my day of arrival. The order was fairly simple and I was told about 25 minutes which is pretty average for a busy resort town. It ended up taking a lil longer than told, but I wasn't too concerned. the food: I had...

Description
Last day open is Oct 8th for our 2016 summer season! We re-open May 5th 2017! Open April thru the 2nd weekend of Oct We offer 10 minute Carry-out, or Fast Delivery to all of Ocean City. NO EAT IN. 81st street Coastal Highway. 2016 is our 35rd year! How we make our Sauce: Our pizza is most noted for its tasty sauce as well as not being skimpy with it. In 24 years of being in the pizza biz, we have never ever deviated from buying the best, most delicious, and most expensive, cold packed plum tomatoes from Stanislaus County California. We buy it fresh ground and its not from concentrate. Its texture is bits-and-pieces and we add only 10% water. There is enough in the ground plum tomatoes already. Then we add our own preportioned large bag of spices and herbs mix. In this biz, it called the "Goodie-Bag". It consists of Oregano, Parsley, Basil, sugar, salt, pepper, garlic powder, & hot crushed peppers. We wioll not tell you portion so out flavor stays original and unique. We boil these 8 spices and herbs like a loose tea brew, and then combine this brew to cold smashed tomatoes pieces and puree. WahLa---done. No cooking the tomatoes. Taste fresher this way. It`s Punchy. The spices and herbs "POP" better this way.Our unique 4-Cheese blend:Mozzarella, White Cheddar, Parmesan, and Romana. I love how mozzarella is so WHITE and how when cooked it stays white, but with little brown dots that appear when it`s done. Mozzarella is creamy white and gives the pizza a chewy texture which is a thumbs-up feature in the pizza world. The other 50% of my cheese blend, which is also freshly shredded on site daily, is Wisconsin white cheddar. Wisconsin white cheddar is extra flavorful, exactly the same price as Mozzarella, and is known for keeping the cheese soft the next day for those that eat cold pizza, or re-heated pizza. Our 3rd & 4th cheese added to each pie, is a couple thick pinches of both Romano, and Parmesan cheese, added on top, and baked into every pizza that leaves my front door. This is my own signature "4 cheese blend". We use only fresh made Pizza Dough:It is hand stretched. It's between a thin to medium thick crust. EVERY single pizza that leaves my premise has a crust that has been brushed with EVO which helps the crust brown nicely. Our pizza crust has great fold-ability and is soft and on the chewy side. Re-heating it in the oven will produce a crunchy crust. Re-heated pizza is the bomb because it dries up the crust more and makes the cheese hot and gooey again, yet the sauce is insulated, so it's not scolding. That's why a re-heated slice is easier to eat and more tasty actually!Toppings: All our toppings are fresh. We fresh slice all our veggies on premise except for our black olives, sweet peppers, & banana peppers. My personal favorite house-cooked topping is our bacon. It is very savory! We par-cook it 3/4 of the way in the oven by itself, dump off the grease, then blast chill it for storage. Then we cook it the rest of the way on the pizza. This way it is not greasy on the pizza. Affordability/Quality: Compared to chains $10. Pizzas, I admit we are expensive. But along with this fact, I hope while you eat our pizza, that you will agree it is more substantial as for its generous portion of rich hearty sauce, a generous portion of our 4-cheese blend, and a hearty portion of fresh delicious toppings. We are a "Mom & Pop" shop. You are reading about us now, contemplating to NOT choose a pizza chain for some reason. What was it? You were searching for a place that offers something better, more unique, and you were willing to pay a little more. We have coupoin specials that we honor even if you simply mention them. Its ok if you do have the coupon, but you must at least mention the offer. Ask for our 2-fer deal: Two XL 16" Cheese Pizzas for $27.99. If wings are a must add-on, ask for our Pizza and 10 wing deal: A XL 16" Cheese Pizza with 10 Regular or Boneless Wings, for only $22.99 About Us: Pino`s is NOT a chain as some think. This has been a family run business for 35 years. No second store anywhere. It has been in my family for 30 years after buying it from Pino Tomasello in 1986. I personally run the day to day operations since 1992. My wife Tracey handles the deposits, bills, and paperwork side of the business. Thank you Honey! We believe it is true that the best customer service and quality control comes from a store that is "owner operated" personally. Not where the owner is divided by 4-5 stores etc. We are happy doing one store and because of this, hopefully you will experience something better over-all. We only Serve BIG Pizzas: XL 16" Pizza for $15.99. Our NYC 20" Pizza for $21.99. Our 28" Super Party Pizza for only $36.99. Thank You, Jim Hofman Owner/Operator
