Yala's pizza is ok, but my absolute favorite is Eliseo's. Their deluxe is the best!!! They used to be on the east side of lorain. They left and could be making a killing if they'd open up again!!! Really miss them being on the east side!!!

Have been eating yalas for 52yrs. I craved it when I was expecting my first child. I have been eating it ever since.....I sure wish they would branch out to different states as some who grew up on it have moved from lorain.........love that pizza

Connie Moll said on Jan 24, 2019 10:31 PM

I was raised on Yalas pizza and as I'm 50-ish will continue to eat Yalas pizza til I can't eat pizza anymore! Hands down THE BEST in my opinion!!

Melinda Fern said on Aug 7, 2018 4:32 AM

Yalas is the best pizza in the world. Live in Indiana now, I try to get yalas every time I come back to Ohio. Delicious pizza. Been eating it since I was a kid.

Christie Gigliotti said on Jan 26, 2018 9:00 PM

I attended St. Peters right down from Yalas-- Every other friday when my mom (who works at First Federal) would get out of work we would stop and pick up a pie.. I have lived in Kent for the past 10 years so Every time I visit my parents we have to order a Large mushroom and Pepperoni. The best Pizza makes the best memories. Thank you for staying consistent and delizioso! Cheers!

My Christmas wish is for you to be able to ship your pizza. I moved to Oregon and miss your pizza very much!

Ben Solis said on Dec 3, 2017 8:34 PM

Grew up in Lorain west side where Yala's was king (not Admiral King). Still king though. Been living in MI for 23 years but I always get Yala's whenever I'm in town. Don't ever change. Simply the best. Yummy!!

Dee Clar said on Jul 27, 2017 7:30 PM

Love , love , love yala's pizza .

Crissy Nelson said on Jan 10, 2017 4:37 AM

I grew up on the east side of Lorain. My older sister worked for Eliseo's when she was in high school. I've loved Eliseo's my whole life. I moved to Northern Kentucky 10 years ago but visit Lorain often since my family still lives there. EVERY time I come home to visit my family and I order Eliseo's! I post pictures of it on Facebook every time and all my friends in Lorain and friends that have moved away always comment on how they love Eliseo's and Yala's!! It's BY FAR, the absolute BEST pizza ANYWHERE and I mean... ANYWHERE!! I've tried a lot of pizza in Northern Kentucky and in Lorain and I can't find a pizza that even comes close. Thanks for making a pizza that's out of this world!!

Skip Eastin said on Dec 16, 2016 7:09 PM

My favorite pizza place ever. Not only had many evening meals there, but also went there sometimes for lunch while attending Lorain High back in the 50's. Super nice people.

Justin Lukachko said on Oct 20, 2016 7:24 PM

Grew up on Highland Park Blvd, right down the street & been eating Yala's Pizza for the last 35 Years!!! I currently live in Castalia, OH, south of Sandusky & will make trips into Lorain just for Yala's!!!!

Mike P said on Jul 25, 2016 6:56 AM

My brothers and I always loved visiting our Grandma and Grandpa Neufer. During summer visits we would always beg Grandma for our favorite pepperoni and mushroom pizza from Yala's. The absolute best pizza around. Thank you for those special memories.

Dan Morris / Ariane Amiri said on Jul 25, 2016 5:48 AM

Whenever we return to Lorain for weeks prior to our trip we start drooling about Yalas. No place like it in Charleston SC or in the world !!!!

Jay Protenic said on May 29, 2016 7:28 PM

Left town in 82. Lived in LA, San Diego, Denver, Anchorage, Dallas and now Wrightsville Bch, NC. Great pizza everywhere but none as good as Yala's. Im in Cleveland as I write this note and am salivating like Pavlov's Dogs because in 3 hours I'm gonna have a pie. Xtra cheese pepperoni and mushrooms. CANT WAIT

Jim Martin said on Mar 8, 2016 3:24 AM

Been in Louisville for years now. Every time I'm up there I bring home pizza. The Best.

Kevin Williamson said on Feb 8, 2016 3:12 AM

I grew up in Lorain, OH eating Yala's Pizza for us was a family tradition. By far the best tasting pizza I ever had! I moved to Los Angeles, CA 7yrs ago and haven't had Yala's since...damn I miss my Yala's!!

Arlene Traxler said on Nov 29, 2015 12:49 PM

I miss your pizza I live in Fl now and wish you could mail order pizzas here.

WendiBeth Robbins said on Sep 21, 2015 8:51 PM

This is such good pizza that I have to wait until this afternoon to go back to southern Indiana. I wanted to leave at 5AM but Yala's doesn't open until 3PM. Since it is a 10 hour drive home, I might just be getting in a little late but it will be so worth it!!!

Mike Temple said on Jul 10, 2015 11:06 PM

Eliseo"s Pizza. The best pizza taste ever.

Pete said on Jul 5, 2015 5:15 AM

Marilyn Vollmer Lewis said on Jan 17, 2014 3:51 AM

NOTHING can compare to Yala's. My father owned the Amherst Cold Storage, and supplied and stored items for them. We grew up on Yala's, and to this day, it is by far the BEST!

Randy said on Nov 8, 2013 9:43 PM

I've had hundreds of your pizzas over the last 44 years. My brother had moved to CA. and still swore Yalas' was the best. Thanks for not changing the recipe!

Stephen Geri said on Oct 30, 2013 5:06 AM

I grew up in my step dads Italian restaurant in Lawton OK that he opened in 1952, up until today his was the best pizza I'd had in over 40 years. Keep up the good work and I will be stopping by at least once a week as I work in that area quite often.

Jan O said on Oct 4, 2013 8:16 AM

Grew up on this stuff! Even though not that far away, (Avon Lake), just do not get there as much! I have tried many other places and it just does not compare. Can we get a place in Avon Lake?

Angelo Novelly said on Sep 4, 2013 9:11 PM

Thanks lots. Many write ups. You actually suggested this well.. Nicely put, Thanks a lot.

Max Spaniel said on Sep 4, 2013 3:47 AM

Our family has enjoyed Yala's pizza since it opened in 1954, when I was a very little girl. Now my grown children are hooked too. There's no other pizza like it! Glad we live just a few blocks away.

Our family has been ordering Yala's for over 45 years! We moved to central Ohio years ago but whenever we visit relatives in the area we ALWAYS get a couple of Yala's pizza for the trip home!

Lopez Family said on May 29, 2013 6:07 PM

Family Favorite! We order Yala's at least twice a week. Keep up the great work!

Suzanne said on Apr 2, 2013 6:24 PM

Love the Eliso's Pizza. Found this place from reading an article in newspaper, they are the best in the area! Put another one over in Avon, there are no good pizza places on that side of town!

Bob Barron said on Jan 13, 2013 2:52 AM

debbie kopis said on Feb 10, 2012 2:06 AM

We love Yala's! They have the best pizza and meatball sandwiches. We've been ordering since 1987!!!! It was the first pizza we ate when we were getting our home ready to move into. We will keep ordering as long as Yala's is in business!!!!!!!!

sromboli said on Oct 9, 2011 11:13 AM

Steve said on Oct 3, 2011 11:47 PM

Started in 1963.When I returned from Viet nam I asked my buddy who was there at the same time what he missed most while he was in the jungle. We both agreed Yallas pizza. Grat place.

Jan Rebman said on Sep 13, 2011 11:15 PM

We grew up with Yalas and always knew it was the best! Anyway to ship it to North Carolina?? We always get your pizza when we come back to visit. My son just started at Kent state this past fall - just another reason to visit!!

torres said on Aug 11, 2011 9:49 PM

Ive lived in lorain county for 20+ years. I had never had Yala's until this past monday....my favorite food is piza and i will say...Yala's is the absolute best pizza that i have ever tasted. The toppings were so fresh and the cheese was excellent!!!! It was even better the next day for breakfast!! It was so good that i acutally ordered it again today...just 3 days after my first encounter!!! Thank you for making such a fabulous pizza!!!!

Karen Lee said on Aug 1, 2011 0:22 AM

Shannon Layne said on Jun 11, 2011 4:29 AM

I grew up here in Lorain and grew up eating yalas pizza. I moved away to Virginia 19 yrs ago and every time I come back here to my hometown, Yalas is the first place I come to. I love this pizza and have never found a better pizza !!

Larry White said on May 29, 2011 1:14 PM

I've been eating Yala's pizza since I was about 6 years old (I'm 42 now). I've always loved Yala's pizza for the last 36 years and it still tastes the same now as it did then. The only problem is I love it SO much I have to regulate myself to only getting it about once a month or else I'd eat it every week! Keep up the excellent work guys and gals at Yala's! You have a customer for life!

ADRIENNE PRICE said on May 24, 2011 0:40 AM

I love your pizza, it was the only pizza I ate growing up. I wish you could ship it to me here in Califonria. Whenever I come back to my hometown of Lorain I ALWAYS make sure i get a couple Yala's pizza. One to eat and one to freeze and bring on the plane with me back to California. I will see you in July!!!! I am so excited!!

Jennifer Cammarn said on Dec 4, 2010 1:35 AM

My mom used to get us Yala's when we were kids. Now I'm the mom and still getting Yala's!

Micki O'Connor said on Nov 29, 2010 10:54 PM

The best pizza ever, anywhere! I've eaten pizza in many states and nothing compares to Yala's. It's always a stop when I am in town to visit from NC! Been eating it for years and hope to for years to come!

Francine said on Nov 12, 2010 7:58 PM

I had never heard of Yala's until I moved here a few years ago. I love the pizza and the people are friendly and courteous. This is by far the best pizza I have ever had. Thank you for your commitment to the community.

Maritza CedeƱo said on Sep 30, 2010 8:35 PM

My dad was raised on Yala's, raised us on Yala's, and now we are raising our kids on Yala's. Yala's has the best pizza! Thank you for tasting so YUMMY!

Motese said on Sep 11, 2010 5:50 AM

YUMMY...i usually order Yala's but sometimes (including tonite) i get Elisio's....either way you can't wrong. I grew up on Yala's though and it's my favorite!!!

Lisabeth lamboy said on Aug 16, 2010 1:32 AM

I've always thought that 42 street pizza was the best until my fiance got me hooked on yalas pizza it is the best in town by far

Jane Lugar Wilson said on Aug 1, 2010 5:55 AM

We just had the most amazing pizza I have ever eaten!! Thank you Yala's. We just moved back into the area recently and I am glad that Yala's is still here. I used to work there with Jay, Amo and Marian in the mid 60's. Great people and great pizza.

Denny DiFilippo said on Jul 14, 2010 4:04 AM

I worked there all through high school and can tell you first hand that everything in that shop is made from scratch. By far the best pizza in town.

Tom Anadiotis said on Jul 1, 2010 2:58 AM

Yala's is a Lorain tradition. Chain pizza cannot compete with a Yalas pie. Keep up the great food and never change the recipie.

Arlene Traxler-Crandall said on Jun 24, 2010 10:00 PM

Your pizza is soo fresh and delcious! I miss it immensely and will get some when I arrive home next year for a vaction!

One word...Addicting....Just writing this message is making me crave for a Yala's....I'm sure I'll be placing a order tonight....The pizza and staff are the best...

Jennifer Dziak said on May 10, 2010 12:48 PM

I still get Yalas about once a month! I moved to Youngstown for college, but every time I come home to visit my dad gives me money for a small extra cheese, because he knows theres NOTHING else I want to eat for dinner! And I look forward to it the whole 2 hour drive!

Lauren Witt-Matre said on Apr 13, 2010 10:49 PM

I grew up on Yala's pizza and have eaten pizza in a lot of other places including Italy and Chicago and I think Yala's is still the best! Had my last one 11/09! LOVE LOVE LOVE your sausage is the best ever!

Carol Bradshaw said on Apr 12, 2010 11:59 AM

Born in 1954, we share our age, and you have always been my absolute favorite pizza place. I wrote a book, and Yala's is mentioned in it! Living in CA since 1975, I visit often, and always visit Yala's, and order several raw, freeze, and bring back to CA as a special treat. Please never change! See you in a few months, and I'll bring a copy of the book!

Jeff Rash said on Mar 24, 2010 6:47 PM
