The only reason why we have survived all these years of exams and projects and late night cruelties, mega fries, cheese steak, mozzarella sticks and breaded mushrooms. Wouldn't trade them for the world!

They have amazing wings. Absolutely fantastic. And super cheap, to boot! How could a college student like me not love this place?!

This restaurant has served me like I'm part of the family that's run the place since way before I was born. I regularly go in to get sandwiches, and the owner with his kids couldn't be more friendly. We talk about soccer, the kids' time in school, and even got a great coaching on how to pick out feta cheese. The food-from the appetizers through the pizza and sandwiches-is the best it could possibly be for the price. It is ultimately a mom n' pop shop, but that doesn't mean the food isn't made by folks who know what they're doing and incredibly delicious. The place itself is very old and kind of cramped, but the warm, congenial service more than makes up for it. They even occasionally let me try their family's homemade soups and ethnic specialties. So go in, getcho'self a cheesesteak (with spinach and garlic, as they'll recommend), and have a great time talking to accepting, wonderful people!

The food at Royal Pizza is amazing. I never fail to fill my belly when coming here. Whether I have the Pizza Steak, the Stromboli's, the wings, or the actual pizza. This place is far better than Larry's Steaks and Tony Luke's. And the service is more personal because it is family owned and operated rather than being a part of a chain. Being the Amoroso man who delivers this place I know for a fact that they use the best rolls they can.

This is by far the best pizza place in the college area philly has to offer but the best thing on the menu isn't the pizza as odd as that might sound. Over my 6 years in college this thing frequented my speed dial and I have sampled their entire menu. Mega fries are heaven in a pie tin. Its hard to finish one in a single sitting it is the best cheese fries ever ever. The cheese steaks are brilliant specially what they do with the buffalo chicken cheese steaks. A large cheese steak is enough to feed two average college students. While it doesn't look the greatest from the outside the food quality and quantity for the price are unmatched in the area.

When I went to Penn 30+ years ago, Royal Pizza had the best cheesesteaks in the neighborhood. Haven't been since but I'm glad to see it's still there. (Best food deal for starving undergrads in the day however was Troy's in Hamilton Court. Loved the double-slap of meat loaf...)

This is so far the best crust I've had in University City. I'm lucky to live only a block away from Royal Pizza. I agree with the previous reviewer: Don't be put off by how it looks on the outside. It is family owned and the 10 minutes it took me to get my pizza tons of people came in to chat with the owners and get some food. Feels like a real neighborhood joint. The pizza itself was baked well with lots of cheese. I am used to more sauce than they normally put on a pie so I'll ask for extra sauce next time. The crust is crispy and doughy at the same time. It is golden brown instead of white so it has a bit of a charred taste to it, same with the cheese. It looks like a pan pizza but with less grease. Delicious! I ate a whole small pizza by myself. lol
