Good pizza

We went there for pizza. Seems the owner does everything from take the orders to cook your pizza. Service was a little slow, but the pizza was great. Would recommend

While I absolutely believe that the youngsters should join the working force and learn the values of business early on, there also needs to be an adult employee present to teach them the values of a customer. We went in early on a Sunday evening, the place wasn't busy, and there were certainly a lot of employees standing around, but... More

They say you can have the greatest product in the world, but if you don't have customer service you have nothing. I agree! We walked into River City and stood at the counter, decided we should probably set at a table. We weren't greeted or anything even though the owner was standing 4 ft from us. My husband finally asked... More

Great place, love the old style pizza place feel. Kid's loved all the arcade games they had six or seven.I was actually surprised how many there were for the size. But It's a must if your in the area.

Had lunch there before we could check into our motel. You order from the counter and they bring it to you. Food was good, but it little warm in the building.

The barbecued chicken pizza was covered in BBQ sauce and that is all you could taste. The entire pizza was sloppy and unappealing. I will usually eat anything, but I had a hard time with this. The guy who runs the place seems to lack people skills, but I guess there isn't much choice in Needles so why bother to... More

Waited over an hour for delivery, when we got it was a mess. you couldn't even tell what it was. The driver was very sorry. I wish I could post a picture and let you guys try and figure out what it was we ordered.

Stopped here for lunch on our way through needles. We read the reviews and thought it may be worth the stop - it was. We shared a pizza - one of the house specials. It was very very good. It is a kind of funky place - it was spotlessly clean and the service was good. Well worth eating here.

Got a Phillie Cheese Steak, garden salad, and spaghetti and meat balls and all were excellent. The salad was really fresh, the cheese steak was perfectly toasted, and the spaghetti sauce was wonderful and the meat balls very tasty. The staff was exceptionally pleasant and helpful. We will be returning on our next trip through Needles.
