Hidden gem!

This is one of mine and my wife's favorite places to eat. Discovered it years ago when it was not so popular and watched as the owner built into a great little place...and other places as well. Pizza is always fresh, hot, and consistent. Salads are great with homemade dressings and the large... read more

Similar to another review, the cashier taking the order was not friendly and never said thank you. I'm sorry I left a tip. The pizza had a good amount of toppings but was soaked through the bottom, making it soggy & limp.

We visited Craig O's for a quick dinner. The person taking our order was a bit terse, hardly welcoming, which wasn't a great start, but the server was nice and friendly and the pizza was decent. I would not call this NY style as others have. It is fairly middle of the road pizza (but in our family, any pizza... More

We have been to Craig O's on 290W at Mopac a few times. Each time the pizza was delicious, exactly what we ordered. The half salad makes the right complement to the pizza if you want some roughage. We have not tried the pasta dishes. Check out the beers on tap too. This is casual food at its best.

What I ordered: Chicken Parmesan (plate, not sandwich) and a 2 liter Pepsi. Promised time: 45 min-1hr Actual time: 30 minutes The price was really good especially for having it delivered. It came with... More

Delicious pizza with awesome pricing. Watched a football game, hung out with family. It was a great night. Highly recommend. Low key and relaxing.

I think the pizza might have been fairly decent if It was hot when I received it. The gentleman that took the order said 45 minutes on the delivery...that's fine, but I sure thought the food would have been hot. The Midwesterner in me wonders about a pizza with ground Italian sausage. Needles to say, last time for me.

Eat here only if you like pizza and a good pitcher of beer for cheap.
