A slice of heaven
Pekin checks all the boxes on the regular pizza joints with Pizza Hut, Papa John’s Pizza, Domino’s Pizza, Godfather’s Pizza, Papa Murphy’s, Little Caesars Pizza, and Casey’s. But Pekin is also home to several locally owned pizza joints with sit-down dining rooms.
Two P’s Pizza & Pub features a savory sauce, great crust, mouth-watering calzones, and stuffed crust pizza options. Their artisan specialty pizzas go beyond the normal with names like the Mac Daddy, Hawaii 5-OH, and Nach-Yo Taco. They also have other tasty pub foods and outside-the-box fry flavors like their Freaky Tzatziki Fries, Disco Fries, and ever-popular Garlic Parmesan Fries.
Maquet’s Railhouse is also raved about for having some of the best brick oven pizzas in Central Illinois with their Signature Rail House pizzas and Mushroom Truffle pizzas as must-eats. Ask for their red pepper-infused oil or Corto olive oil and parmesan for dipping! Another well-known pizzeria throughout Central Illinois is Monical’s Pizza. Their thin-crust goodness and delicious family pleaser never disappoint. Be sure to order some pepperollies and a fresh garden salad! They also offer a crazy delicious gluten-free pizza.
Avanti’s, Jimbo’s Jumbos, McCritter’s, and Venezia Italian Bistro also serve delicious pizza along with other tasty Italian food that you just must try. Pekin’s got pizza covered!
