Wicks is an epic pizza place. If you ask me what kind of pizza I want, I'm going with Wicks! Unfortunately they don't deliver to my house, though they do have three locations that I know about, I don;t fall in any of the service areas. That doesn't stop me though I still eat here every time I get a chance. Thanks guys keep banging out those pizzas!
Will never be back – I drove 120 miles to pick up a 'big wick' after the UL game last night. Pizza looked fine on top, but the crust was like burnt toast underneath and sides. Didn't notice this till I got home. Called them and they only offered me a $5 credit on my next purchase. I'm sure they don't care about my 1 or 2 purchases a year but they will care when all my family and friends who live in Louisville will no longer patronize their business.
Awesome! – We were invited to meet up with friends and this was our first time. We loved the pizza,
the drinks, the friendly, efficient service
and had a good time with our friends.
Absolutely the best anywhere – My family travels a lot and we always try a local pizza place - not a franchise. This one is by far the best pizza that we have found. We live 3 1/2 hours away from Wick's Pizza and have literally gotten up on a Saturday and driven to Louisville just for pizza.
My hairstylist is located just a few doors down from Wicks and had recomended that I try the chicken club. It was freaken awesome!!!! yummy
FAIR AT BEST AND NOT REALLY AUTHENTIC AT ALL – EDIBLE, WITH DECENT FLAVOR, BUT FAR TOO WEIGHTY WITH TOPPINGS, CAN'T REALLY TASTE CRUST. MOSTLY GENERIC AS MOST COMMERCIAL TAKE OUT IN THIS CITY. A FAR CRY FROM THE REAL THING.
Pizza, the right way – I'm a pizza fanatic. Originally from Omaha where the best Pizza in the world resides (Mama's, Big Freds, Godfathers, Sgt Peffers, etc)
Get the Big Wick. I'd give it a 5, but it was heavy on the green olives (a bit too much for my taste). My feeling is that you have to be sparing with canned green olives, or they will hijack your pizza.
The atmosphere is not my taste (loud), so I'd suggest sitting outside
If you are in Louisville, go.
Hands Down the BEST PIZZA IN LOUISVILLE – After moving to Louisville from NYC, I was so thrilled to be in walking distance of Wick's on Baxter. This is by far the best pizza in Louisville and even rivals some of my favorite pizza joints in NYC. The toppings are always fresh (I love the spinach, garlic and mushroom) and the service is always great! I take all of my guests from NYC there and they all STILL talk about the breadsticks and garlic butter. One friend even made me go back three nights in a row, he just couldn't get enough! I usually end up getting carry-out or delivery since the place is so busy inside. But who can complain? Of course it's busy, it's friggin delicious!
Check out the breadsticks, house salad, stuffed breadwick or the cinnamon star. All are amazing! And whatever you do, don't pass on the garlic butter dipping sauce. But beware... it is HIGHLY ADDICTIVE!!!
Extremely poor service/OK pizza – Went to Wick's for the first time after hearing people absolutely gush about the pizza there. First, the parking wasn't very good. We got inside and were seated quickly but it was very crowded and we almost didn't fit at the table we were seated at. There weren't any more options though. After that, we saw or server less and less. It was absolutely unreal the amount of time it took to get our food. We could not get our waitress to come back to the table for re-fills or anything else. The pizza was good, but nothing to write home about. After waiting for almost a half our to get our ticket, we were almost ready to just leave we were so frustrated. She finally came back and it was wrong. Needless to say, I am definitely in no rush to go back there.
not what it's cracked up to be – People swear by Wick's. Maybe you have to be a Louisville native to appreciate their pizza, but I found it boring and unappetizing. Each slice is weighed down with a mountain of cheese (and not even GOOD cheese) that takes over the flavor of the sauce and crust. Any pizza place that offers a chicken bacon ranch pizza seems un-authentic to me. I find it rather pricey as well. There are other local pizza establishments that I would choose before Wick's. Not impressed.
