Garlic Jim’s | Lakewood, WA

Garlic Jim’s Famous Gourmet Pizza has locations in five western states, and I tried one in Lakewood, Washington just outside of Tacoma. I believe they only offer delivery or carryout and their niche is gourment pizza delivery, and being a lover of all things garlic, the restaurant name alone was all the motivation I needed to sample this pizza. My pie consisted of pepperoni, sausage, and Canadian bacon on Garlic Jim’s own hand-thrown thick crust. The crust had some good seasoning on it, but I was expecting a little more given the name and would like to try their garlic thin crust next time (their third crust offering is a gluten-free one for those health-conscious pizza fans). However, they totally redeemed themselves with the garlic dipping sauce that came with the breadsticks as it was great with the breadsticks and crust, and I thought their toppings were very flavorful as well. I think Garlic Jim’s is definitely worth a try as they offer a lot of different specialty pizzas as well as wings, ribs, salads, and desserts.

What I Ate: Sausage, Pepperoni, and Canadian Bacon
Rating: 7.0/10.0

    How can we get to a 10.0?

    • Thank you for asking, but it is hard to say as I have never given anyone a 10.0 in rating over 100 pizzas. 7.0 is definitely very good though, and I will try the garlic thin crust if I am ever by another Garlic Jim’s as that might be able to boost the rating.

    Please add a web order page like some of your other stores have. It would help the process of getting the order exactly as you wish and when you wish.

      Hi Karen – Sorry for the confusion, but this is just a review of Garlic Jim’s pizza, not their website. It appears that the location I tried in Lakewood may have since closed, but most of their other locations do seem to offer online ordering on Garlic Jim’s website.
