Depending on what you eat here it could be more expensive but or family of 7 had salad and 2 pizzas and it cost us less than $60. That's hard to come by anywhere! It was a fun atmosphere with great service!

I have been eating here as long as I can remember, 40+ years and can say I have never had a bad meal or experience. If you like thin pizza, this is the place. Great sandwiches (subs, meatball, pizza burger and italian beef) as well.

The spinach salad and their nicely done thin crust pizza are a great light dinner. However, toppings are purely traditional. Their menu hasn't changed in decades. They pretty much stick to your standard toppings.

When we moved here in 1997, no one could beat Pizza House-- not with pizza, salad, sandwiches, or pasta. Tonight, after calling in an order for take out I had to wait in the lobby for close to 30 minutes. The pizza didn't taste fresh and was not hot, and the spaghetti was mediocre at best- the meatballs and sauce... More

Wayne and John do a helluva job at Pizza House! Besides having the best pizza...the lunch specials, sandwiches, and soups are outstanding too! Count on friendly and quick service at all times. This is a sure winner if its dine in, take out, or delivery!!!

We are originally from Knoxville and return to the area often to visit relatives. This place never disappoints. Love the thin crust pizzas. The price for adult beverages is a great bargain!

I had heard from several folks in the Galesburg area that this was supposedly "The Best Pizza in Town". My girlfriend and her mother decided to do carry out instead of dining in. Upon calling and asking what time the place closed the response was: "Umm I'm not sure. Maybe 9 or 9:30." Okay... We ordered a LARGE pizza. 1/2... More

We got stranded in Galesburg because of snow and picked this place for food. The garlic bread was hard and tasted like it was made from hot dog buns. The breading on the mushrooms was terrible. My sandwich was decent but the taco bake my friend had was sub par. Not that great for the money we paid.

We enjoy their taco pizza and really cold beer. The space is small and often times crowded but it's loud and comforting at the same time. My only complaint is the cold air that runs through there everytime the front door opens.
