We met friends for dinner at The Pizza Man after hearing from a FB friend about the authentic Italian sandwiches, pizza and hotdogs served there. None of us ordered a hot dog so no review of that portion of the menu. Two of us had the Italian Beef sandwich served with marinated veggies and spicy au jus. The sandwich was... More

Stopped in for a slice of traditional Chicago-style pizza. It was well worth it! Good price. Fast friendly service! Loved it!

I really wish this place would move somewhere else. It's a testament to how good the food is when you have to drive on back roads to find it and it's still been open for years. Let me get this out of the way, if you have ever had an Italian Beef in Chicago, you will LOVE The Pizza Man,... More

Have had the Chicago dogs and Italian beef and both are very good. Interior of the place is looking fairly worn but that doesn't detract from the food quality. Has been a long time since I tried their pizza as I usually have a sandwich--what I do recall was that their pizza was somewhat unusual and was pretty good. All... More

Having been raised in Chicago, I am always interested in finding a place in the Kansas City area that serves Chicago Hot Dogs and Italian Beef sandwiches. I happened to see a review of The Pizza Man by Sarah Gish, a reporter with The Kansas City Star, and decided to try it. She is correct, the Chicago hot dogs and... More

Was looking for something different and saw the love in earlier reviews. I do not understand it. The place was empty, blamed on road closings by the person behind the counter. There were dirty tables which was disconcerting. I had the Italian beef. Good subtle flavors, but the plain white hoagie was disappointing; no flavor at all. The pickled relish... More

Great Chicago dogs, Made exactly the way they are served in Chicago. The italian style beef sandwiches are the best I have ever eaten. Thin crust pizzas are great. Prices are reasonable.
