Great pizza, chips and dip

Wonderful for families. Stick with their pizza, homemade chips (free) and get a dip to go with it all. Rotisserie chicken is also good. Check into their daily specials and happy hours!

Went for a quick lunch. Got right in and out. Try the chips and ranch dressing. Wonderful. The smoked chicken salad was enormous.

The restaurant is located near the entrance to Metro North Business Park off of I-35. There are also hotels within walking distance and plenty of shopping within driving distance, so it’s a great location. I was there on 2 occasions for lunch and I found the service to be very friendly both times, but the food was mediocre, at best.... More

The homemade chips are delicious, especially if it's busy so they are making them constantly and arrive piping hot! The wood-fired grilled pizzas are really good too. There's never been anything disappointing from the menu!
