Pizza-a-Go-Go neatly sidesteps the contentious which-thin-crust-is-best debate. A pie from this modest, rec-roomesque south-city joint — there's a piano in the dining room and a fridge for your BYO beer fer chrissake — is neither the cracker-crusted, Provel-topped pizza of St. Louis nor the nearly paper-thin grease bomb of New York and New Jersey. Instead, you get a deceptively simple pizza: crust just thick enough to support the toppings and with a perfect, slightly chewy texture; a thin layer of ever-so-tangy sauce; the cheese melted to the ideal consistency. Frank LaFata opened the original Pizza-a-Go-Go in Gaslight Square in 1964, moved to South Grand a few years later and then to the current location ten years ago. You'll find his son, Paul, overseeing the kitchen these days. Proof that while run-of-the-mill pizza joints come and go, greatness endures across decades and generations.

My girlfriend and I tried Pizza-A-Go-Go on the recommendation of the RFT, MSN Citysearch and AOL Cityguide ratings. While we did enjoy the pizza served here, there are 5 other places that we have personally enjoyed thin crust pizza at that we would recommend ahead of Pizza-A-Go-Go. They include: Nick & Elenas (Overland), Schottzie's (S. Lindbergh), Farotto's (Rock Hill), Smugala's (Sunset Hills), and Fortel's Pizza Den (Affton). There are probably some more places that could make this list, but I have not tried them all (yet).

My wife and I have been enjoying pizza -a-go-go for over 30 years and our children love it and so do their wives. Now we have small grandchildren and one of them is now enjoying it too. Frank and Paul both have great personalities and we will probably continue to go for many more years. My favorite is the deluxe pizza. All their pizza is great and you always get service with a smile. They deserve this honor.
