5 Star Pizza
5 Star Pizza
951 N Haven Ave Ste C & D
Ontario, CA 91764
I'm trying pizza places nearby and Ontario was next up on my list. I did some search and found 5 Star Pizza. I think I told David Allen about 5 Star and he actually went there before I did! Here is David Allen's review of 5 Star Pizza. Located in a small shopping center next to a coffee house, 5 Star Pizza takes up two spaces. One space is the kitchen and counter a few tables, the other is a huge dining room, filled with sports items on the wall. The owner must have gone to Cal Poly Pomona, because there was a Cal Poly Pomona pennant and jersey on the wall, not something you see, even in Pomona!
Medium mushrooms and jalapenos, $12.65. The crust was on the thin side, much thicker than New York style but not as thick as some other pizza places. A good texture, slightly chewy but not tough. The sauce was pretty bland. The jalapenos were plentiful and huge!! While there could have been a bit more mushrooms, the mushrooms were fresh. This pizza is pretty much run of the mill pizza. But, Ontario isn't exactly filled with lots of pizza options.
Service is poor! I walked in and wasn't greeted and stood at the counter for about 2-3 minutes before they acknowledged I was there. Not much interaction other than the norm. Not friendly or welcoming. There were maybe 10 people, who filled 3-4 tables, so not busy with dine in customers and I didn't see one person come in to pick up an order the entire time I was there, maybe 25 minutes.
I wouldn't go back to 5 Star Pizza. If I had to give them stars it would be 2.5 stars. Other than a few places, Sal's Pizza in Alta Loma, Fratello’s Pizza and Pasta, and San Biagio's Pizza, it's a pizza wasteland once you get east of La Verne!
