Columbo's Pizza is a popular eatery located at 203 Pendleton Road just south of the National Guard Armory at the edge of Pendleton, South Carolina. It has been open for 34 years as of 2019. The original location was in a shopping center on Old Greenville Hwy next to an old Bi-Lo that was demolished. Mark Conrad has been its manager since it opened.
It offers a pizza and Italian menu, is licensed for beer and wine, and receives universally good reviews. Columbo's has some of the best pizza in the Clemson area. Columbo's is the only place near-by where you can get a pretty good version of a deep-dish, Chicago-style pizza. They also have The Atlas, a gigantic 28-inch pizza for parties and those with enormous appetites. The Atlas pizza is highly regarded.
