We've been going to them for the past 7yrs and within the past 2yrs the service time for phone order pick up is not consistent (usually we end up waiting an extra 10-15mins on top of the 25 mins), and we would have missing orders and incorrect meals. We have called the restaurant to let them know and they have... More

Have been going to Norton's for pizza for many years as it is close by, and pizza is good, and they make 'white' pizza which is hard to find in California.

Don't try the lasagna - it tasted good, but apparently wasn't, because we both got sick from it.

We were exhausted and hungry after dropping our freshman son off at SCU, but couldn't find food close to our Hotel that wasn't the same as home in Oregon. After driving around with no results and returning to the Hotel still hungry, the front desk told me about two local Pizza places. One turned out to be a pizza chain... More
