We went to Bimbo's based on a recommendation and we were not disappointed. We sat near the front and were amazed at the volume of pizza that was being made for those eating in and for takeout. We like thin-crusted pizza and the pie they offer was great. Our daughter ordered an individual and my wife and I ordered a... More

Recommend to downtowners. Parking can be an issue, so be ready. Pizza s solid B. No alcohol available. And if you ask for green pepper, you may have to ask the waitress to point it out to you. Clean inside, with carpet?

Thin crust and hefty toppings. If only the play had a late night window for those who just want a pie for the night munchies.

This is a must every time I visit Kalamazoo. Thin cut crust with great sauce. Get additional sauce and double up on the toppings. So good. You can call ahead and have your ready upon arrival.

When I travel, I like to go to unique local places. My entire party was so excited that we tried this place! The pizza was amazing but my favorite part was the crust. We were all amazed at how efficiently they ran this cute little place with just the tiny little kitchen upfront. We loved that we could see the... More

I really liked Bimbo's. The people were great and I loved the old, storefront with the high ceiling inside. I really liked the food as well and will be back every chance I get. Pizzas were spot on and had their own unique style and character. They actually reminded me of the pizzas my mom used to make when I... More

I couldn't begin to guess how many times I must've passed by this place as we've gone through Kalamazoo over the last 30 or 40 years, but I should've stopped much sooner. This was only my third visit, and I've only tried 2 of their specialty pies; the Original Bimbo's House Special (twice) and the Bimbo's Special (once). For my... More

We eat at Bimbo's quite frequently and it is one of the most consistent restaurants in Kalamazoo! The Pizza is excellent! I recommend the House Special it is excellent!

I have had a few friends tell me that this was the best pizza in town and that we HAD to check it out. Fair enough, I will give it a shot. Walking in, it is like the old school downtown locations with that old ceiling style. The place looked a bit run down, but it is really no different... More
