Good food

Stopped here for lunch. Ordered a calzone and a grinder... Very good. The grinder hamburger meat didn't taste good- it had a weird taste to the meat.. I took it out n ate the rest of the sub. They didn't charge me for it, which was nice. Service was good; prices good.

Cozy pizza place with good food. No beer or wine sold. Good variety on the menu. Will try again if nearby. Nice and friendly.

This is a family owned business and a great place to eat. The food is always hot, tasty, and affordable. The staff are always friendly and often times will come out from the kitchen for a convo. They also deliver but be sure to check the days of delivery as it changes due to the seasonal changes.

I was recently in the area staying at a nearby hotel and wanted to check this place out since it was the only eatery close to the hotel and not at one of the casinos. The service was great and they are great people and know how to chat you up. We came in for a pick up order and... More

The restaurant has been recently remodeled with new floors. But we don't go for the decor. This where the locals go eat good food. The pizza is really good with plenty of toppings and a crispy outside, chewy inside crust. Sandwiches and grinders are made to order and the staff is always willing to see what they can do to...

I used to go to pizza place when it was in Taftville and it was my favorite pizza around. Since they've moved to Preston Pizza not as good, not sure if they changed their sauce or what. But not good. Not very clean restaurant either. Disappointed.

I started going to Eli's as soon as they opened and went at least once a week until another pizza place opened. Why? No one at Eli's looked me in the eye or made me feel welcome. After a week of going to the other place, they new my name and my order.

We are local and go there alot, their pizza is a fave with our kids and the square cut seems to make it go farther (?). Great crust, not too much sauce or cheese, just right golden brown and yummy!

The food is good and reasonably priced. The buffalo wings are really good and seasoned just right. Just wished it stayed opened longer.
