Very good, high quality pizza. You can tell they take pride in it when you bite into it. Nice selection of other menu items as well. Every time we've been there, we've always enjoyed it. It's a good, friendly place to eat for lunch or dinner.

This restaurant is nice and the staff is very friendly. The salads are above average. The pizza is good, but nothing special about it.

Special discount on Pizzas that are so tasty! We enjoy half cooked and not cut so we can finish pizza at home!

"Take Out Tuesday" is a winner for our loyal Guests and we are so glad you are one! But that's not all we do for our Guests; there is Double Point Monday, Family Wednesdays, Wine Down Thursday's and helping to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries or just a great meal. Eat well, live well... More

We stopped in on our way to Tallahassee and had a great experience. Our server, Molly, was awesome. The food and beer were great. We had the Margherita pizza, Highway Parmesan Cheese Bread and Herbed Tuscan Fries. Everything was very good. We will definitely be back.

Have eaten at Blue Highway a number of times. You can expect a long wait on busy nights as this place is tiny. But portions are very large. The pan pizza is excellent. I also tried their Chicken Piadine, which is has terrific mingled flavors. It's huge. Enough to split or take home half! Owners' and staff really care. The... More

Thank you for your review! We wish we were bigger too. Our Ocala location has the luxury of more space with a larger dining area and a big wrap around porch. Thank you for your patience with our small space, though we are glad to be so busy. More

Blue Highway has wonderful food options for vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike. The only problem is that they need more room in the dining area inside.

I love local food. Located in the Town of Tioga in Gainesville is this great pizza place called Blue Highway Pizza. It doesn't have a huge dining area, and definitely not a place that requires you to dress up. But definitely a place to get some great local pizza. This was our first experience here, and I was impressed by... More

The atmosphere was fun, service was great, and kid friendly with pizza dough to play with. However, the pizza wasn't great. It wasn't terrible either, but I was expecting it to be really good with all the great reviews and recommendations from friends.

About three weeks ago a local of Gainesville treated me to Blue Highway. We went on a Tues. night around 8pm. The place was not crowded and our waitress was very lively and knew the menu well. She also told us about the specials for the day. The food came out in ok time and was sooooo good.
