We remember Von's music store at the top of the hill heading up to Purdue. After seeing Von's sandwich shop option we had to try it out We ordered a Boilermaker Calzone and the Supreme Calzone. It took them about 10 minutes to prepare the calzones. They were good and quite filling. To order you have to know three different... More

This place has about 50 different calzones you can order with some classics, like meat lovers (Power Hour), along with more unusual ones like Loaded Potato (potato, broccoli, cheddar, bacon, and ranch). I have found that they keep odd hours however. They are posted as being open until 3am when school is in session but several times I called and... More

Von's is good! The food has always been amazing when we have eaten there! The employees are super helpful. The atmosphere is totally a college dive feel. It's not fancy, but we love it! Super unique!

So, they were having a discounted deal on the calzone and so I thought I'd give it a try and it was my first Calzone, which I really liked. THEY ARE GREAT FOR CALZONES.

very fast, friendly and tasty... You can't go wrong with any of the calzones! Not fancy inside by any means, but it is a good college eatery.

Calzones are soggy and disgusting. The manager will not refund your money if you aren't pleased. Horribly overpriced garbage.Go to Mad Mushroom across the street.

Disappointed! The manager refused to honor a special as it was advertised online when I ordered. I would have cancelled my whole order if I hadn't already paid online with my credit card. When I complained to the manager who was working, he insisted he was the only person I could speak to regarding the issue. I had to press... More

Von's is located in the (very) old Burger King building in Purdue Village. If you're in the mood for a filling calzone, Von's has great variety of doughs, fillings (including vegetarian) and sauces. You won't be bored with their menu. To be fair, I've been getting their delivery for about five years, and that's hit or miss as far the... More

This is a good stop late at night when you are hungry. It's located right in the middle of the bars!

I've been to the dough shack a few times and it is always good. This time I got broccoli and chicken and it was heaven. I probably won't order anything else. The staff is efficient but not exceptional and the decor is on par with my expectations of a college campus restaurant. Go try it.
