Decent pizza in Burbank for kids birthday party?

Looking for a decent-to-good affordable pizza place in Burbank that will deliver for a kid's birthday party. Need to feed about 25 kids. Costco pizza isn't an option due to the delivery issue. I know there's a "Big Mama & Papas" pizza in Burbank and they specialize in the huge party pie, but, honestly, don't love their pizza.

Because of the number of kids to feed, need something price-wise that won't break the bank.

  1. What about Dino's? I don't know if they deliver. There's also Reno's in Toluca Lake, which I know delivers, and there's Northend which is downtown and is not bad either. Our usual Valley go-to, though, is Ameci. The Burbank one is on Glenoaks, and they definitely deliver.

      I'm a fan of Dino's and their lasagna pizza. And they do deliver...they make deliveries to our office all the time.

      1. re: Das Ubergeek

        n/m, i see you need delivery.

        they're kids, who cares? they won't know the difference.

          "they're kids, who cares?"

          Because the adults at the party tend to eat the pizza too and I always appreciated parents who got "edible" pizza that I could chow down on as well (without regretting it).

            fair enough, buy crappy pizza for the kids and good pizza for the adults lol

              Because then the little ankle biters suddenly develop a taste for the "good stuff" and leave you with their crap... ;-D>

                high counters!

                and to keep on the thread, Dino's best in Burbank proper IMHO

          i've always been baffled by the love (or maybe it's just like, but i'm baffled by that, too) dino's gets on this board. it's tasteless and styrofoamy at best.
          you might try tony's bella vista, or what's that place on lankershim, i think, just south of moorpark? angelino's, i think. maybe that's north hollywood.
          i've always wondered how reno's is.

        3. Another vote for Dino's. Blows away the national chain stuff.

          1. re: Jack Flash

            Thanks for all the feedback. I'm very familiar with Dino's, but don't think it's cost effective for feeding 25 kids plus assorted parents. That's A LOT of pizzas to buy = a lot of dough $$. Any other suggestions for decent pizza in this area for feeding a large group? I'd go with Costco, but it has to be delivered because we'll be busy at the party and won't be able to leave to pick-up.

              honestly I think the next level of pizza in burbank THAT DELIVERS is papa johns. i'd actually prefer papa johns over say, pitfire or BM&P (esp. if Dino's is too expensive)

              1. re: ns1

                My quick research tells me that an XL cheese from Papa John's is actually more expensive than Dino's ($13.99 v. $12.29).

                Translation: if Dino's is too expensive, so is Papa John's.
