Marco's Pizza is the dark horse of the pizzeria world, with fewer stores than giants like Pizza Hut or Domino's. Despite that, it's earned a place in the heart of pizza lovers everywhere for its fresh ingredients, quick service, great atmosphere, and, most of all, its delicious pizzas.
According to QSR magazine, Marco's Pizza is currently the only national pizza chain in the United States founded by an Italian. Pat Giammarco was just nine when his family moved from Italy to Michigan, where he worked in his dad's pizzeria. Giammarco founded his own restaurant, Marco's Pizza, in 1978 in Toledo, Ohio. But why Toledo? Here's what Gimmarco told an interviewer:
"A friend of mine was getting married in Monroe, Michigan, and we came to Toledo to rent tuxedos."
Upon reaching the city, though, he was struck with the idea of starting a pizza place there. When the initial planning began, many asked him why he would think to start his own restaurant. Giammarco said that he simply knew that his pizzas were better than the others. It became a hit as soon as it was founded.
Recalling those early days of his pizza place, Giammarco had this to say:
"Fortunately, it was as good as I thought. [Customers] would come from 20 miles away a lot of times. And we just started opening up more locations where we knew people were coming from."

    • My overall Top 10 Pizzas: 1. Pizza Connection (Hazel Park, MI) 1A. DeLuca's (Garden City, MI) 1B. Bartelli's (Waterford, MI inside 300 Bowl) 4. Little Caesars 5. Marco's Pizza 6. Captain's Party Store (My. Clemens/Harrison Twp, MI) 7. Metro Pizza (LV, NV) 8. Domino's 9. Buddy's Pizza (Detroit, MI) 10. Sorrento's (Macomb County, MI)

    • W/in my Top 5. Amongst chains, only behind Little Caesars. @ least Marco's Pizza uses FRESH MUSHROOMS. L.C. doesn't yet r8s higher than Marco's Pizza is due 2 af4dability. W/the xcption of L.C., Marco's Pizza blows away the competition (especially Jet's; also 4med in 1978). Marco's is much less expensive than Domino's (& much better quality).

  • finally gave a name to the kind of pepperoni i've been looking for: old world italian. i never put two and two together that the few times i've had marco's that it was their distinct pepperoni that i was craving. the chewy pepperoni i've been eating from everybody else pales in comparison to the meaty crunch of marco's. i would pay a little extra for it for sure.

  • obviously marcos are never gonna beat those mom and pop shops (and my fav pizza place metro pizza) as a chain goes, my family transitioned from papa johns to marcos and we’ve never went back, also if you get the pepperoni, get the original. also it tends to be a lil too greasy, so be careful and let it cool down before you dig in (obvious tip tho lol)

  • Marcos is bomb. I rarely eat pizza bcuz at 26 years old I have to watch what I eat.... my friend ordered a Marcos pizza for us and I told myself I was going to only eat 2 slices.... I ended up eating the whole box...OH WELL but best pizza I ever had in a long time!

  • Toledo Ohio born and raised, and by far the primo chain pizza. Love their sauce and fresh ingredients. Love their thin and crispy crust. For me, pizza is about the sauce,toppings an ingredients. The thin crispy crust will stand up to your toppings., and sauce. My new favorite is the crustless pizza, very generous with toppings sauce and cheese. And now that they’ve added the build your own , you can’t go wrong! And can we talk cheesy bread???

I haven't had Round Table Pizza in ages, but when I had it as a kid I thought it was utterly horrible. My tastes may have changed since then, but I'm not sure I'd want to test it.
