My boyfriend and I went in on a Saturday afternoon around 4:30, hungry and looking forward to a meal. I hadn't eaten there for years but occasionally order pizza to be delivered at work. I will not any more!
We sat down and were completely ignored. Not even one instance of eye contact from any of the workers. It wasn't that crowded at all. We waited for 15 minutes and left in disgust. Great way to treat your (potential) customers, guys.

Ordered two large pizzas for delivery downtown - gave a phone number to call when they arrived. We had to call looking for our pizza. Said they couldn't find the place and we had given them the wrong number (really? you didn't write it down wrong, maybe?) No offer to correct the situation - so not a fan of the service

Unfortunately, the pizza is relatively good. However, the entire restaurant sucks in general. I work in the ER at a local hospital. We called in over 10 orders for well over $120. When they delivered the pizza (which took an hour and a half!) we discovered they charged every individual order a $2.00 delivery charge. I called the restaurant and they said that was customary - even though every order went to the exact same place with the money ready at the front door when the delivery guy got there.
Then we found out that the delivery guy does not get any of the delivery charge Plank's rips off of it's customers.
Because of their ethical behaviors, I will never order from Planks again. Much better pizza around town where the joint doesn't rip you off after already charging you too much for what you get!!!

Fresh ingredients, great meats and a sweet crust/sauce(I don't know which it is that's sweet). Their pizza is the best in Downtown Columbus. If you're a buckeye fan, you have to go atleast once. You'll most likely go back too. I try to pick one up atleast once a month and it's a 20-30 min drive for me to get it. Well worth it though. The sweetness of the crust/sauce combined with the spiciness of their pepperoni and sausage is awesome. If you're looking for a place to get some pizza while you're down there for a game or event, make it a stop.

After moving to Kansas---and discovering the pizza gold mine that we had in Planks---their pizza is the best! You don't realize what you have until it is harder to get to! Every trip back to our home town includes at least 2 stops at Planks! A must visit place- especially on Tuesday evenings.

I absolutely love Plank's. They have great pizza (some of the best I've ever had!! especially the pepperoni), great decor, and great atmosphere. There's a certain friendliness there that is hard to describe. The food is not too pricy, they have plenty of drinks at the bar, and my family always goes there to have a good time when we all get together. I definitely recommend it!
A Favorite Gathering Place Since 1939
- General Info
- Our history begins in 1939. Plank's Cafe & Pizzeria, 743 Parsons Ave., was founded long before there was such an area known as German Village, which is the historic area south of downtown Columbus where we are located. The founder, Walter Plank, saw an opportunity after Prohibition and he ran with it. Plank's son, the late Walter Plank Jr., eventually took over from his father and ushered the cafe into the next era. Today, the third generation of Planks - brothers Tom and John, and sister Mary - keep the faith of this true community gathering place. Plank's Cafe & Pizzeria continues to build on its legacy as a destination eatery for the many downtowners who love the cafe's noontime spreads.
