Great Pizza for a White Sox Bar!! Good menu, Good Service!

The pizza here is good, facilities clean, the owners are avid Chicago White Sox fans so don't go to watch a Cubs game as it's not their thing.

Made a reservation, the server was obviously not experienced enough for a party of 15. Plus he was underage. Everything took forever! My canon chicken pasta was bland and missing ingredients as described on the menu. We did go to the Aurora location, not sure if that makes a difference. Not sure I would ever go back. They should of... More

Excellent food! A tad pricey, but all and all, good service and good food. Their crab leg special, on Saturdays is great, you will not leave hungry!

Denise was our server on the outside patio. She promptly got our drink order. The Shiner Bach draft beer was cold in a chilled glass. One plus. A popcorn machine provided free popcorn while we talked and read the extensive menu. Being a vegan, I ordered the portobello mushroom sandwich with plenty of roasted veggies and a delicious Italian sauce... More

A group of 1965 graduates of Marmion Academy gathered here for pizza and beer. We were treated well. We had a quiet area to ourselves. Pizzas arrived quickly, and the beers were cold. This is a well-kept, pleasant place to eat with family and friends.

An unassuming Mom and Pop place in a strip mall...but great food , friendly service and lots of TVs! It is kind of a sports bar but has a family appeal. Lots of special events, live music on weekends. The fried chicken is wonderful, crispy, juicy and tasty. The ribs are amazing and the price is right. Locally owned and... More

Nice atmosphere. The menu had quite a few choices. We got pizza which was really good. Also got a Cajun Pasta which was delicious. Good service, nice waitress. Would go again if we were in the area. We were at the Aurora outlet mall and decided to stop here. It was a good choice to stop here.

Nice atmosphere. Clean, too. The menu is adequate, though not extensive, and the food was pretty good. Service was a little slow, but I was with a group, so I would be the first to discount that concern. Two premium beers and a Buffalo Chicken Salad ran me well over $20, whichs seems like a bit much for what I... More

Probably the 2nd best pizza in Aurora. Love the atmosphere and the hosts are great. Plenty of TVs to watch games in the bar area, we have been there before for March madness and loved it.
