This is a hard one. I don't think there's another pizza joint in the whole city which varies in quality as much as Big Johnny's.
Let's start with the store. It's disgusting. Everything from the drooping awning to the rickety thrift store furniture to the 20 year old condiments is covered in grease. The counter is greasy, the window is greasy, and most of all, the staff is greasy. If this were... more
Read your reviews and tried it out. Was I ever disappointed. No Johnny, just a small mid-east lady. Guessing the business was sold. And the price for 2 medium pizzas is not $25 as advertised, increased to $29. Never again.
Open late, owned and run by big Johnny who is the man! Great pizza! Close to all the fun stuff to do in kitsilano and always reliable for a late night delicious slice of pizza.
I had the Hawaiian tonight and my friends had the cheese and pesto and everyone went home very happy.
We called at 1am Sunday night when he was supposed to be closed and he stayed open so we could come get a few slices.
