“My favorite pizza place in Winchendon. Locally owned and operated. Inside is clean and staff is friendly. I highly recommend their spinach pizza.”

“My favorite pizza house. Been a customer there for decades. Love the owners! Unfortunately they recently sold the place to enjoy retirement, to which I wish them all the best and will miss them greatly. Best spinach pizza in this area.”

Gabby’s Pizza:  232 reviews, score 4.3 – 255 Central Street   Website:

“Gabby’s was originally just a sub shop years ago and the current owners have kept all the original sub recipes on the menu plus added pizza. Good food. Reasonable prices. Highly recommend the Nor’easter or Thanksgiving subs. Delish! Oh, and all the subs are made on homemade subs right in house. Light airy and don’t fill you up like other bready subs! Definitely worth the trip. Delivers, too.”

“Great family owned and operated restaurant with a special attention to detail. Everything I’ve had here is great tasting and fresh, but the steak and cheese on their own fresh baked bread is easily the best steak and cheese for 200 miles in any direction…. possibly 400 miles and I’ve had steak and cheese from up and down the east coast, anyway top notch people making top quality tasty food. Seriously EVERYTHING IS GREAT HERE!!!”

Christos Place: 197 reviews, score 4.2 – 51 Central Street   Website:

“Awesome pizza! We ordered some pies to my friends house and everyone thought they were delicious. We got a chicken parm pizza (probably my favorite) and a steak and cheese pizza. Both were very filling and full of flavor. If you want a good pie, this is the place in Winchendon!”

“My family and I absolutely LOVE the food from Christo’s! The pizza is delish, the NY crust is my personal go to, but the regular is amazing as well. The subs are also super tasty, the bread is always fresh and the contents of whatever we get are as well. The chicken tenders are so juicy and crispy and are not overly breaded and the fries are fluffy on the inside and crispy on the outside just how we like them! I highly recommend going here not just for the food but the crew is on point with customer service and they are consistent with the food. Great prices too!”

Zoe’s Restaurant Pizzeria: 187 reviews, score 4.2 – 435 Spring Street

“Went for the first time last night and had a great time. The service was great and I would recommend the pizza. Even ate the crust which I don’t normally do. We got the Inferno, and took a Hawaiian home for later. Nice, thin crust pizza. toppings, sauce, cheese…all good.”

“Great wings and pizza
Two years later, just had a large pizza well done. It was PERFECT. BEST PIZZA IN WINCHENDON”

“The prime rib was glorious. Live music was fun. This is my new favorite date night. A good place to take the family along too. Just darn good.”

“We took our employees here for dinner and had a great time. Prices are very reasonable especially considering their large portion size and knowing how much the price of meat has risen this past year! Love the modern vibe and feel of the place. They had a musician the night we were there so place was packed but still got fantastic service. Cocktails were strong and tasty and our brownie sundae desserts were enormous. We will be back for sure!”

We loved it! Food was great. Portions were huge. The staff was friendly and fast. It’s a new favorite for us.”

“Went to get a Christmas tree. Got free fish and chips meal with the purchase. Ordered more food and everything was excellent! Friendly, helpful, and courteous staff. It was great!”

“I hadn’t been to a restaurant in months because of the pandemic. I decided to go here and the food was cooked so perfectly. The seafood tasted fresh. Great value for the money. I got the skipper platter. The tables were distanced. The waitress was super nice. I will be back even if just for take out. Now I know where to go when I crave some good seafood.”

It started with great service from a very friendly and competent server, which is getting harder to find these days, all the way to the taste and presentation of the food. I had the bacon blue burger with sweet potatoe fries and it was really good, best fries I’ve had anywhere. I’d highly recommend anyone to visit this establishment, you will not be disappointed.”

Hometown Café: 181 reviews, score 4.6, 314 Central Street

“Great place for breakfast or lunch (or breakfast FOR lunch). Homemade soup was incredible, as was the Texas style French toast and BLTs my family downed. Quick service, super friendly and attentive staff, and just a great overall homey feel. Prices are excellent, too. The owner even took the time to personally check on how things were. Highly recommended.”

“We are new to the area, visited this restaurant yesterday for breakfast. Both of our omelets were delicious, cooked perfectly. Coffee was great as well as the home fries. The cinnamon roll was to die for – clearly homemade. They grilled for us and sprinkled powdered sugar on top. Definitely a 10/10 I would go back just for the cinnamon roll.”
