My wife and I ordered dinner from Butch's our first night staying in Bloomington. Bloomington has a couple of 3rd party delivery services that will pick up your food from restaurants in the area and deliver them to you for a small fee. It was very convenient for us. When the food arrived, the portions were very good. My wife... More

These guys model themselves after NY style deli's, but they have a long way to go. I ordered the matzo ball soup and it was one of the worst ones I've had. Absolutely NO flavor. I'm not talking under-seasoned, I'm saying there was NO flavor. I don't think they added any salt whatsoever. I was really disappointed because I LOVE... More

Went to Butch's to try their calzones and were very pleased with them. The calzones and the marina sauce were very tasty and we highly recommend them. Although Butch's caters to the college age crowd, we (2 retirees) had no complaints about the quality of the service or the food.

If you want a great salad or sandwich in Bloomington, Butchs should be your first (and only) stop. The food is fresh and the portions are huge. Staff was very nice and accommodating.

You have to try the pizza. It is the closest you will find to NY pizza. We always purchase 2 extra large pizzas even though there is only three of us in the home. It's that good!!!

We all had pizza by the slice. I was concerned about how fresh it would be. They reheated it in the oven and it came out fine. They variety was a bit lacking but did fine something I liked by the slice. Service was good.

Staff was very friendly and helpful in explaining things to first time diners. Pizza was excellent, and the soup was perfect for my daughter's sore throat. Wish we had been there on Tuesday for the Two for One special.

I have only been here once with friends. The sauce on the pizza is good and the toppings plentiful. I was told this was close to NY style pizza, but I didn't think so, and I was raised on NY pizza. Nevertheless the pizza is good and the toppings varied. The atmosphere leaves a bit to be desired. Think corner... More

When running an eating establishment you must provide your customer with a positive experience. I have visited Butch's a few times to establish my opinion, my final opinion is I will probably not return. The pizza although good is left out for a very long time before reheated and served. The hamburgers are premade patties, the bread tastes as if... More

We have gotten Butch's pizza a few times now, and it is always great. As close to NY-style pizza as you can get in Bloomington.
