Nice little hidden gem that hasn't been changed by all of the crazy progress. Pizza by the slice and they'll make it your way. Such great staff and cozy environment. Stopped in on a visit with family, but when they travel to Kansas to see us we ask them to bring Panhandlers!

This is not a sit down and someone comes and takes your order type place. You walk in and order at the counter. The service was great and the pizza had great flavor. The crust is really good. With so many choices in Fort Collins this rates as one of our top choices!

This is a walk-up, order, then sit-down restaurant with good choices. We were there for lunch, so had slice pizza with a salad (excellent salad for a pizza place). My pizza not as hot as I would have liked, but was quite tasty. Had the cookies for dessert...right out of the oven, yum! Love that I can put as much... More

What a great atmosphere! The first time we stopped in to panhandlers we came because I had a Saturday coupon for pizza and a pitcher, $25 bucks. I'm so glad we did! Cute checkered tablecloths, fire burning in the big grate, cozy booths with little red candle holders. And when we ordered, they gave us complimentary garlic knots ( yes... More

I have been going to Panhandlers for over 20 years. Top quality ingredients. Great Chicago style deep dish pizza with a killer Chicago style sauce. If you miss "Windy City" food, check it out.

This is one of the best pizza places in Fort Collins. My family and I have been eating here for over 30 years, and the food is still just as good as always. I recommend eating here in the winter (order the 'Beggar' pizza with REAL sausage chunks) and sitting next to the fireplace.

The deep dish pizza here is outstanding. Love the sauce. If I get even close to Ft. Collins, I am there!

Either for a slice or a whole pie, you can't beat Pan's pizza. From the sauce to the toppings, it rocks and there's not a second choice to go for deep dish pizza in Fort Collins.

I have been going here since college. Now whenever I get the opportunity to go anywhere near Ft. Collins, I go to Panhandlers as a special treat!. They have full-sized or by the slice. The sauce and sausage is awesome! I always take a couple home with me to freeze. They also will do a half baked pizza for you... More

The sauce has great flavor, and the crust is thick, but light. Great pizza! Definite must - try if you're in Fort Collins.
