Bleh... – The owner obviously doesn't care about his business. I have HAD to deal with this dude a couple of times when I was overcharged and got bad pizzas and customer care. He promises prompt refunds that he has yet to deliver and apologizes, but never offers a fair solution to their mistakes. These people are dishonest and worse yet...INCOMPETANT!!
I WILL NEVER GO BACK!!!!!
We order carry-out here all the time – We live in the avenues and order delivery from here all the time. i go back here because i like the pizza. for me, the crust has a lot to do with whether or not i'll go back to a pizza place, obviously fresh ingredients and a good sauce, but still they make a good crust and that's why I get delivery from here. i've never had a problem with the delivery or the quality of my pizza.
I tried it and I did not like it – was feeling sorry for this place because of all these negative reviews. went in last night for pickup and was so shocked. pizza was barely passable but the worst part was the inside of this place. whew. hard to describe. quite unkempt and very dark. kinda like a hangout for junkies. then i see this guy who hits the baby huey tag perfectly. nearly lost my cookies stifling a laugh. don't feel sorry for this place now. i did as you asked and tried it and never again. these reviews nail this stye to a tee. man, thought i was gonna catch some disease at this place and did not even try to finish the pizza we took home. i thought maybe these bad reviews were kinda like the herman cain sydrome by throwing enough stuff out there something sticks and people have doubts. no need for that. this place is VERY BAD! stay away people if you know what is good for you.
man, i am so tempted to go back in and order something so i can see this "Mongoloid Troll" from a review here. that "Baby Huey" was so on target my curiosity is totally piqued. i never laughed so hard. you gotta see this for yourself.
man guess this dude the owner is posting in comments about my review "Willhelm– December 10, 2011 at 10:21:10 PST
Really? What's the name on your order, buddy. Got the order sheets right here in front of me. Tell me who you are and what you ordered and I'll refund your money"
you had your chance last night to make a first impression and you failed. am not that stupid to give you wankers another shot at it. really, deal with it already and quit trying to downplay how garbage your place is. these dudes simply show how crappy this place is by trying to use intimidation to change people's reviews. what doesnt willhelmina understand about this site and forum being anonymous for a reason. figure it out dude.
now there is some max idiot leaving comments too. you guys are trying way too hard. how about just offering a decent pie and some class service. grow up and please try to figure out what you are supposed to be doing. mas and wilhelmina are probably the same person. am guessing it is that baby huey guy i saw last night. pretty sure.
okay give me $100 cash n i will come in to your place again but you have to promise the mongoloid troll is working that night, cool?
New item! – New item: donald bruce murray is now using white-trash, homeless people like his new butt buddy, steve rossi, to fight his battles. the poor free wheeler owner cannot handle the heat himself and now sees fit to hide behind the skirts of Mr. Rossi and his incredibly keen intellect and wit! What, ziggy was not man enough for you don? now we get to be entertained by the sharp acumen of some has-been, off-road, outdoor-type, man-wannabe, this Steven Rossi?
I welcome the chance to compare medical notes with such a genius as our new renaissance man, Steve Rossi. But a suggestion again, for Donald Bruce Murray and Steven Rossi and Ziggy, aka Robert Orchard, coming out of the closet will be a burden lifted from off your backs. Just admit that you are homosexual and all will be right with the world again! it is not a bad thing so embrace your true selves and be free! this hiding in the shadows and pretending you are straight and that you like women is not healthy. come clean young men, come clean!
Here we go again!
Besides the dishonesty and hypocrisy of dm stealing a delivery from his own shift delivery driver, which he never did unless it was to try to take them from the only two delivery drivers who he hated and who got the pizzas delivered on time, myself and my brother, there was also a wee bit of a matter about the pizzas he was taking being uncooked. In dm’s haste to get out of the store before i got back, he pulled the pizzas out of the oven without them being thoroughly cooked. When the shift cook tried to tell him that the pizza dough was still raw on the pizzas as well as the toppings being undercooked, he threatened that cook with termination if she did not shutup as well! Dm then proceeded to take the half-baked pizzas to the customer without a thought about whether he was delivering a quality product nor whether the customer would be upset about the shoddy pizzas. All dm and luv button mb cared about was getting that tip!
Dm inherited the money he used to purchase this pizza joint and since his favorite pastime with his pal ziggy and luv monkey mb was to sit and watch Teletubbies and Pee-Wee’s Playhouse on tv at all hours of the day, you can see that running a pizza place was not high on dm’s list of priorities. He looks at the pizza store as his toy. To him, free wheeler is simply something to do, somewhere to go and someone to laugh at his infantile jokes. He obviously does not care a whit about the customer. In fact, on many occasions I personally watched dm and his cohorts laugh at disgruntled and unsatisfied customers behind their backs and make fun of them for demanding a better product than they received. Now this is what I call the customer being number one and never being wrong!
This place sucks! – OMG! Had a pie delivered got it way late, cold and wrong toppings went in and talked to some guy who called himself don
these guys would not even make me a new pie so then end of this no way i order again from some Baby Huey-lookin dude and his sidekick who looks like a mongoloid troll, called himself zigly
c'mon you losers at least take responsibility for a crappy delivery and horrible pizza and refund my money
end of story
Obviously this company is posting their own good reveiws! – I just had to post this after seeing all these reviews that, if you read very carefully, are obviously posted by employees and friends of this joint. The reason I have to speak out is because I have tried this place and I will NEVER go back there again!
Why? Well, a co-worker at Rocky Mountain Power, recommended this pizza place to me and I decided to give it a shot and took my wife and two kids there in September. My son is 13 and my little girl is 8. We wanted to dine in but that was a huge mistake! First, the service was incredibly slow and 3rd-rate. I cannot believe that this place would offer dine-in because it is so dimly-lit and the atmosphere reminds me of a shed out back on my Uncle's old homestead in Price! The chairs and tables are very cheap and not appealing at all as well as being dirty when we sat down.
I really was not too upset until I got the pizza. My kids would not touch it because it was so soggy it looked like soup on cardboard. Seriously, how hard would it have been to drain a bit of juice from our veggie pizza? I guess too hard for this place.
On to the next problem; the employees looked like they had not bathed or showered in weeks and their manners were atrocious! I tried really hard not to take it personally but I finally gave up when some young kid delivery driver started telling dirty jokes within hearing range of my kids. That was enough! We will never go back there again and we would recommend to you that you do not try it. You will be sorry like we are! This is definitely not a place for a family to go. I must say too, that the front of this place is a bit intimidating and dreary. The sign out front looks more apropeaux for a garage sale or a pawn shop!
After our interesting experience, I got on the internet and did some research about this free wheeler place. After a bunch of leads and contacts and about 6 weeks, I got in touch with an original owner of this pizza chain from years ago who told me that free wheeler pizza was started by potheads and druggies because they could not get a delivery pizza back in the 70's or so. This guy wanted his name left out but told me he owned several of these shops and since he knows a friend of mine, he revealed to me that they used to use free wheeler pizza shops as a front to sell dope and other drugs!
Great! This place is the descendent of a drug ring! Need I say more!

BAD REVIEWS NEED PROOF?--GOOD REVIEWS NEED NONE? – These bad reviews are spot on!! I don't eat at Free Wheeler anymore, cause it is just such a terrible experiense! The food is horrible and expensive! People there look slobby and shabby! Why do you trust the good reviews?! They could be just as bogus as Wilhelm says the bad reviews are. See for yourself--yes!! But, wait a few months when they can revert to their normal selves, dirty uniforms, really bad food, and really lazy service!!! This pizza place is so bad!
At first I was hesitant to try Free Wheeler Pizza because of all the negative reviews. But I decided to throw caution to the wind and give them a call. I must say I'm glad I did. I ordered a simple pepperoni pizza (didn't want to be out too much money if the negative reviews proved to be true) To my pleasant surprise the pizza had a quite a bit of pepperoni topped with a generous layer of cheese and was very tasty. I could only conclude that many of the negative reviews must have been unscrupulously motivated. Perhaps a competitor who contracts out to have negative reviews written about their competition; or maybe someone who, for whatever reason, feels the need to slander this place. Whatever the case, I will continue to order from them. Next time I'll be a little more adventurous seeing as their menu has a lot of choices. It has been said overstating a point is the best way to invalidate it. I'll certainly keep that in mind when I'm browsing review sites for any product or service.
Oy-Vay! – I have gotten more cold, watery, flavorless pizzas from Free Wheeler Pizza than any other pizza place in SLC. The phone help was rude. The delivery guys could care less. Used to be good some time ago, but now it's just seems to be a failing enterprise. I finally learned my lesson after getting pretty sick. Avoid this place like the plague!!
SLC's WORST – Ordered the garlic rolls, a salad, and a combo pizza. Came delivered with the cheese stuck to the box and cold...ABOUT 40 MIINUTES LATE!! The pizza dough was tasteless. The toppings were minimal, to say the least. Sauce was meh! I ate about half a slice (it tasted as bad as it looked) and tried to pass it off to my roommates, but they not-so-politely declined. You see, they had been trying to eat a garlic roll and decided they were better off eating drywall. The salad? Wilted, slimy, and starting to turn. Unfortunately, too late to call them back once it finally got to me; I'll have to let it go and vow never to eat this junk again. Free Wheeler Pizza is an unholy mess!!
