Restaurant details
Reviewed March 29, 2017

AS a UM Cane Alumnus< it is a thrill to revisit UM and see the fantastic progress of my Alma Mater!! What saddens me is that the old haunts surrounding the neighborhood of the UM are disappearing one by one !!! Foxes in South Miami is gone forever & Shortys BBQ down in Kendall is now a chain restaurant! The final Blow came when Miami' s Best Pizza shut down for good!!! We Alumnae remember all too well risking our lives crossing Dixie Hiway on foot to get that great Pizza at Miami's Best!!! But alas Miami's Best is gone forever totally demolished !! But we Oldie goldies have found the perfect cure for our Miami's Best withdrawal symptoms because we now have Joe's Old School Pizza right across the UM & guys believe it or not, it is better then Miami's Best because the Pizza is the best I have ever tasted !! And if the Pizza & the great toppings don't do the trick, just order a gigantic meatball in tomato sauce & you will find Heaven !!!! Other Italian dishes & great chicken wings also adorn the MENU!!! Finally Joe's Old School Pizza is actually connected to the UM by a pedestrian footbridge . So those of us on the UM side no longer risk our lives crossing Dixie Hiway to get a Pizza ! Go Canes! Go Joe's

I was heartbroken when Miami's Best Pizza closed down and decided to give Joe's a try. WOW! It is by far the best pizza in Miami. I have only done takeout- although the inside seems nice for a quick meal.

Great pizza, service can be slow. Sweet sauce, if you liked Miami's best you will like Joe's. Delivery is rough. But again...pizza is great, chicken parmesan sub awesome too. Cheesy bread amazing.

Overall the pizza tasted good, the sauce was light and the crust was crisp, we order meat lovers but it was only 3 meats... The wings were tiny (doves size) waste of money..

This place is a little slice of pizza heaven! While in Miami taking our son to a UM football camp, we stumbled upon this place in a strip mall in Coral Gables within walking distance from our hotel. Although I would never have imagined saying pizza was one of our best meals while visiting Miami, Joe's Old School Pizza delivered and proved this to be true! First of all, we watched Joe take his homemade pizza dough and twirl it and spread it with all of the ingredients on our 18" three meat pizza (sausage, meatball, pepperoni---my boys are big meat eaters;) and it was slathered with gooey cheese! I am pretty picky about pizza crust and his is PERFECT----not too thick and not to thin, but has a crunch when you bite into it. This was a new pizza experience for us (we are from the South) and usually get take out from one of the typical pizza joints. This is authentic pizza the way it's suppose to be-----thanks for the experience Joe, and best pizza ever for this Southern girl!
