Pizza >Beau Jo's Pizza
only thing consistent is their incosistency.
Finally gave up going there...service usually poor...got an uncooked pizza once, their excuse was their ovens went out??...so did they not think i'd notice???.
i'm really surprised they are still around...i'm over them but there must be a lot of newbees willing to try them to keep them in biz...
If I wanted pizza, I would opt for a good frozen brand.
I can't remember having a worst pizza.
the crust has the taste of a flavorless pretzel, unsalted
what tomato sauce is there (very little) has less taste than
something out of a jar.
The meat they call sausage is ground hamburger of
The cheese, i couldn't find or taste any
The pepperoni was paper thin and tasted like
pressed bacon chips
I think the mushrooms where of a frozen type, possibly
not thawed before making.
In fact i think the entire pizza was premade frozen with slight
alterations to fit the customers order
If the pizza was just cheap, I might be able to find a time when
it might be suitable for consumption. To add insult to the experience
the pizza is high priced and tables did feel greasy as mentioned in
a review I had read.
Thanks, and what do you want on your tombstone,. It will taste better.
Could I Get Some Pizza with My Pizza, Please?.
I was born in Colorado and have eaten at Beau Jo's in Idaho Springs many times after skiing. The pizzas are WAY overpriced for what you get, the service is SLOW and the pizzas have a HUGE rim of crust that ends up being a huge ripoff.
I went there with a friend once, and we weren't very hungry, so we shared a small pizza. Well, after waiting about 1,000 years, they brought out this tiny pizza that was LITERALLY 2/3 CRUST with a small ring of cheese and mushrooms in the middle. I SWEAR the cheese center was about 5" in diameter, and the crust rim was about 3.5" wide, rendering you one 12" wide pizza with VIRTUALLY NO PIZZA IN THE PIZZA, all for about $12 before tax and tip.
I WAS SOOOOOOO ANGRY, because I hate being ripped off.
Bread is cheap and topings are expensive, which is why they scam you with pizzas that are mostly crust.
Much has been made of the honey-on-the-crust issue on this forum. Well sure, it tastes good, but for th price of a Beau Jo's pizza you can get about 4 loaves of good bread and a big jar of honey at the supermarket and eat that to your heart's content.
Beau Jo's is ALL HYPE, period. Old Chicago makes WAY, WAY, WAY, WAY, WAY BETTER PIZZA.
they won over this chicagoan.
i love the idaho springs location, nothing like spending the day there and eating at beau jo's . I lived in denver for 3 years until moving to WI last year (i grew up in chicago).
i really like the unique pizza, yeah the crust is thick but it is yummy. crisp and great when dipped in honey. they also offer feta as a topping which is my favorite! i wish they had one here because i would love some right now!
Unique pizza with great crust. This place is my husband's favorite. The reason is the honey whole wheat crust which is healthy and very tasty. This place has a variety of pizza to satisfy food allergies and choices. The vegetarian pizzas do lack some flavour though, I am already sick of eating her. If one has kids though it looks like a wonderful place since they make fabulous balloons!
Never Again. We just moved here from Long Island N.Y. and went because a coworker said it was good. Big mistake! I can't believe they call that pizza. It wasn't even as good as Cici's and was a little more than twice the price. I still have indigestion and just wanted to write this before I forget. The pizza was very greasy and the soup and salad bar were a joke. Also my husband, 2 and a half year old and I all sat and waited to get a waitress for almost fifteen minutes and my son was whining most of the time, which because the place was sooooo noisy, no one really noticed. I'd suggest Cici's over this for people with kids and limited budget, this way you actually get dessert and can refill your own drink without waiting all night.
Big disappointment. Went there because of the gluten free menu. The place had kind of an odd layout and was 1/3 full when we got there. Nonetheless, none of the staff could seem to keep up with the business. Sure they were understaffed, but management should have been able to anticipate it. Our waiter was a nice, young guy but we had to wait for everything, and I had to chase him down to get my check and pay it. The pizza was pretty tasty, but I had wings and the stuffed mushrooms. Yes, that was a mistake not getting pizza in a pizza restaurant, but definitely stay away from both. The mushrooms didn't have much flavor. There should have been more cheese and less of the creamy sause that was in them. The wings were tepid and soggy.
A Colorado favorite for thick (or thin) crusted pizzas piled mile-high with toppings..
Rustic wood paneling and Old West-themed decor recall Colorado's gold-rush days. Hungry families crowd the restaurant munching on Beau Jo's famed thick Mountain Pizzas and thin Praire Pizzas. Customers choose from about 20 specialty pies or create their own using one or more of the seven sauces, nine cheeses and a long list oftoppings. There's also a catalog of sandwiches, calzones and desserts.
Fun at Beau Jo's. This resteraunt was so much fun and my family and I enjoyed this so much, dipping the bread in the honey was so delicious! They have so many choices and their pizza was to die for!
yummmy. The pizza was very good. I like the idea of being able to order a small pizza and it will feed more than 2 as well as being able to add honey to your crust and eat it later...mmm mmm good.
