My husband and I are always searching for a great pizza. This one filled the bill. I had the Waldo Specialty Veggi, thin crust. It was just delicious! I also started with their small Caesar Salad, which was very good also. Dressing was good with nice shavings of Parmesan cheese. The atmosphere is VERY casual. I liked that opportunity to... More

A wonderful local pizza restaurant that offers a first class , quick buffet in a nice setting. They specialize in thin crust pizzas with many unusual toppings. The lunch buffet is very popular and replacement pizzas are constantly supplied. The salad bar is very fresh and quite extensive. This works well for lunch meetings with my oldest daughter , as...

Kansas City son took us to his favorite pizza place and recommended the St. Louis-style pizza. It is very thin crust, and he is correct that it is very good. Our waiter was very good and pleasant, and we certainly enjoyed the whole experience. The hand-tossed pizza was good too from all reports, but I concentrated on the thin-crust.

Met some out of town friends here for dinner last week. They have few tables for larger parties, so we had about a 25 minute wait. The salad bar is small, but has all you need to make a great salad, and everything is fresh. The pizza was very good. My wife and I got the thin crust combo. Our... More

Wow! Didn't feel like going put tonight...so, ordered a thin crust, all meat pizza to be delivered on the recommendation of a friend. It did not disappoint! Great toping portions, crust cooked perfectly. Quick delivery and a very nice delivery person. I'll be back!

This established and well known iconic restaurant in Kansas City's Waldo neighborhood is a mainstay among KC pizzerias. Not only does it produce excellent pizza, but it also has an eclectic atmosphere with not only the wait staff but also the patrons. Many patrons are locals from the area, but is also draws back those from around the area, such... More

Highly recommended pizza joint. We have eaten here at least twice a trip for the past 4 trips to KC for youth soccer. Huge pizza menu with an unlimited amount of toppings. Also has a great salad bar and excellent pasta. If you love beer, they have one of the best selections on draft, bottle and cans. Super family friendly... More

Pizza is a few simple ingredients, but every ingredient needs to be great to make a great pizza. The dough, crust, sauce, cheese (lots of cheese) and pepperoni in my pizza order were perfect. Service was quick and the food great.

In the five years since Waldo Pizza last won this category, Phil Bourne's KC institution has inched nearer the quarter-century mark with an ever-growing beer list, a popular gluten-free crust and yet another expansion of the original site. What hasn't changed: the place's dead-solid reliability. That might sound like faint praise, until you remember the second law of restaurant thermodynamics: entropy. Even beloved destinations occasionally coast, sometimes to a full stop. Not Waldo Pizza, where Bourne and a crew including not just regulars but lifers keep vigil over the details while attending devoutly to customers. A wall of Saturday-night families, a switchboard lit up with delivery orders, a keg about to run dry — none of these eventualities lead to so much as a stray green-pepper sliver when your pie shows up in front of you. But bring on the green peppers — and the banana peppers and the spicy beef and the cheddar and everything else on a menu that's long on good ideas.
