We visited Don's for the first time at the recommendation of a friend. We were visiting Timmins for the weekend and Don's was a great start for our Friday night dinner. We started with cheese sticks that were crispy just as i like them. We then had the best wings i have ever had with delicious thin crusted pizza. Service was stellar and it was a great family environment for dinner. what a refreshing change to big city dining. Singed,Full Bellies with Smiling Faces From Chatham
I lived in Timmins in the 70'ies and it was always a treat to have a Don' Pizza. My daughter lives in Timmins now and we made a quick trip to her new house earlier this week and we needed a quick bite. The question was posed where and what do we want to order? I said Don's was always great so we stopped in and ordered two pizzas for delivery to the house. The price was exhorbant some $55.00 and on top of that they were horrible. The worst pizza we have ever endured. The crust was thin, hard and dry and the pizza was tasteless except for what appearred to be cajun spice all over one of them. It was a complete waste of $60.00 and the tradition has been broken. I will never buy Pizza from Don's Pizzaria in Timmins again.

This was byyyyyyyyyyyy far the worst pizza I have ever eaten in my life. It was dry and tasteless and way, I mean way over priced. This will be the last time I ever order from them and suggest that you do the same.
Also the service was terrible they didnt do anything to accomodate us when we called and complained about the dollar store type pizza we received.
I agree w/ marc .. I went to Matagami PS .. R.Ross Beattie, and THVS .. Don was always there for our class .. great food and great value .. i remember him from being a little kid picking up pizzas for our grade 4-5 class.. he is/ was a great guy .. didn't know he had passed on .. Timmins lost one of the Great Ones that day .. J.

We ordered a 50$ order which included wings. The wing sauce comes on the side. When delivered they had given the wrong sauce (hot sauce instead of sweet and sour). When i called to notify them of the mistake, they offered to send another sauce which may arrive in 45 minutes. Afer an intense conversation on customer service they offered to credit me for one sauce. Not only did this mistake ruin my dinner. I was serving this to friends from out of town.... yes the poor customer service and lack of principle (as they should have credited my wings)
was demonstraded through ignorance. Not to say the least, my guest were highly disapointed. Reputation is spread through word of mouth.
I'm a regular customer of Don's Pizzeria, I can...
I'm a regular customer of Don's Pizzeria, I can understand how people are commenting on the new ownership and the apparent change in the pizza but as a regular customer of Don's I know that the dough has never been as good as it is now, pizza's have been consistant comparing to way back when depending who was working you either got a good or bad pizza. Sure the service isn't always the greatest but they are short in staff. I think that the staff is doing the best they can for the amount of business this resturant has.
A Don's Special pizza is more expensive than other pizzeria pizzas, and I dont' mind paying the extra, but it seems that over the last few years, the toppings on the pizza are vanishing. It used to be that when you ordered a Don's Special, the toppings made it all the way to the edge of the pizza, and would fall off the pizza when you picked up a slice. If you are going to cut down on the toppings, bring down the price, because the value is no longer there. Make it the way good old Don used to!
The food is amazing - definately the best place...
The food is amazing - definately the best place to order a pizza; however, to dine in was not as pleasant. Service was mediocre, we were never asked for our drinks to be replenished, and I could smell cigarette smoke coming from the direction of the kitchen (its a non-smoking establishment). Regardless, they have the best pizza, I guess I will just order in next time.
