Annual Visit – Our Wisconsin Playground Warriors program has been making the stop at Randy's for a decade now on the Friday before Memorial Day weekend. Our players enjoy the variety of options and the pizza is perfect for our casual dinner. While the pizza is worth the stop all on it's own, the incredible selection sides such as Buffalo wings, curly fries, onion rings, garlic rolls, etc. is truly what makes this a "must stop" place for us during our visit to the area for the Bob Gibbons' Tournament of Champions.
Dave and the rest of the staff are always very friendly, courteous, and welcoming to our group each year. We will be back again in 2010!

You will want to come back again ... and again ... – We are Friday night regulars at Randy's, and look forward to the delicious food every week. When we first started coming the owners made it a point to welcome us, and after seeing our faces just a couple times they were able to identify us by name. It's hard to find a place with such great tasting food (especially the red sauce, which is homemade) matched with friendly faces for such an affordable price. You won't go wrong eating at Randy's.
Excellent pizza, don't hold your breath for a table – Best pizza in town. Seriously. (Okay, if you like thin New York style, which I do.) But if you're looking for a place to sit during lunch, either get there before 11:30 or after 1:00. During that hour and a half, the line is typically out the door. The last time my coworkers and I got there, we were in a line down the sidewalk to get in and order. So we called in an order to go, which was ready in 15 minutes, and ate back at the office. Still delicious.
Great Pizza !!!! – I went in for two slices on tuesday, and the slices were so good and so big, today is Thursday and I took my picky husband and kids in and they loved it. My husband said he will go back.
Great Pizza and even better house pasta sauce – Randy's is by far the best place for pizza we have found in the triangle. Don't confuse this Randy's with the rest of the ones in Durham. This one has the same name but is independent of the others....and much better.
-The pasta dishes are good and the homemade sauce is amazing, it has a real sweet kick to it.
-The slices are huge and they pile on the toppings.
-The best thing there to me are the garlic knots. They are soft and garlic butter is great.
-The hot sandwiches are made fresh and also good.
A few tips:
If you get pizza by the slice it is very thin. If you order a pizza to go it's thicker. What I do is ask for a 16 inch pizza with 14 inch dough and it comes out nice and thin.
Be sure to call ahead for lunch if you're getting a big order, the line is out the door at lunch time.
My GPS tells me I'm in NC, but that can't be right - I must be in New York! – I'm no casual fan of pizza; so when I heard about a place that served up real New York style pizza, I was skeptical. I've been disappointed too many times. But I'm here to tell you; this is the real deal.
Paper thin, foldable, chewy crust? Check!
Not too much sauce? Check!
Good cheese, well seasoned, fresh toppings? Check, check and check!
I was so impressed, I had to see who was behind the opeartion. I saw a man that seemed to be in charge. He was a flurry of activity, but seemed to be really enjoying his work. I introduced myself and found out his name was David, and that he was one of the owners. It's always great when the owners take a 'hands on' role in an establishment like this. He took time out from his obviously busy work day to talk to me and explain what made his joint special. I could see the obvious pride he took in his place.
My lunch was 2 huge slices of pizza (so big they need 3 paper plates arranged to hold it!) and a fountain drink - a little over $6. Such a deal!
If you work in RTP, love pizza and haven't tried this place - don't walk, run. It's a small place, with about 6 tables that seat 4 or 5, so maybe not the best place to eat in if you have a big group.
The crowd during lunch should give a clue... – Easily the best pizza in the Raleigh area. Very crowded during lunch hours but tables turn over quickly and we never have to wait too long for a seat. We probably eat here for lunch twice a week, the specials on the board are usually worth checking out too. The sweet tea is great.
Great Pizza and Service – Great pizza and service -- that says it all. Only wish they had a bit more seating (the downside to being so popular).
RTP Regular – I work in the RTP area and have been a regular at Randy's for a little over two years now, and I can't say enough about them. The pizza and subs are delicious and the place has a style all its' own. The employees are fantastic and witty. Go experience Randy's, you won't regret it!
North Carolina pizza chain with multiple Durham locations specializes in New York-style pies, sandwiches and salads. – In Short
