Pizza Shack has always been a Lunchtime favourite of ours! Pizza like no other, loaded with extremely plentiful toppings, is sure to fill you up, and if you are like us, a Medium is enough for 2 with leftovers for Breakfast tomorrow. Our favourites are the Carnivore for its meaty goodness, and the Hawaiian loaded with huge chunks of Pineapple!... More

This restaurant doesn't look like much from the outside (or really the inside), but the pizza is fantastic. I would describe the style as thick crust, but not Chicago-style, maybe more like a Detroit-style crunch. It's a good variety from what you're used to and definitely better than pizza chains. I didn't think I'd be able to get a good... More

Best. Pizza. Ever. The carnivore has bacon, ham, sausage, pepperoni. So good. So cheesy. Everytime I have been to this location, the pizza is so good. You definitely get your money's worth. Their plain pepperoni pizzas taste really good as well. Sandwiches aren't too bad, either. The ultimate is what I normally get, sans tomato. The staff is very friendly.... More

You pay but it is a GREAT pizza every time. Hearty and hefty fresh toppings with great taste. Always cooked to perfection. The chain pizza joints can't compare. Treat yourself. One of my favorites is the chicken fajita pizza.

I had read the reviews noting the thick crust, but I saw on the menu where you could order a thin crust. I did, but it was still thick. I don't know if that was an error they made, or if the thin is still thick. Pizza was good, with very thick toppings, Also, this was at the Madison Ridgeland... More

Its not much to look at and is really just a shack Full of deliciousness and pizza! Pizzas are thick crust and fully loaded! They feel like they weigh 10 pounds! They offer traditional pizzas and some outside the box choices. I have had both and have compliments all the way around!

I just didn't like super thick super greasy pizza. It's just not my thing. Other people love this place though. "If super thick pizza is your thing this place is for you. The service was not great, but what you would expect. They also allow you to order beer while you wait, which is a plus. But honestly the pizza... More

The variety of pizzas at the Pizza Shack is most notable. They put different ingredients from other cultures to create a pizza for everyone that tastes delicious! If you are looking for a good pizza in the Jackson area, look no further.

The rating would have been excellent but our bottle beer was warm. I mentioned this at the counter and the manager or shift leader.did nothing to solve our issue.
