What wonderful, bright flavors come from the wood-fired oven here! We had the shrimp, clam and bacon pizza special. The squeeze of lemon with fresh green onion and basil after it came out of the oven it over the top! Best news is you can bring a fine wine with you to enjoy with your dinner. Just be aware that...

I have reviewed this restaurant many times but every time I go there I know why I keep going back. The owner Pete who is awesome always greet you with a smile, talks to everybody, and makes the best pizza around. Whether you like it with just cheese or sausage or whatever pleases you, I absolutely love his pizza

The Pizza Joint is one of my husbands favorites! But he's cheating himself by not eating other than pizza here. The sandwiches are to die for and the pasta is crazy good. I like to go on Friday for the fresh baked take home bread. But the thing I like most is the consistency. Always excellent!

This is a hard to find tiny place attached to a gas station, but it is NOT gas station food. Every pizza is made to order and baked in a wood fired oven. They also have canolis, which I haven't tried. This place has a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

Pepperoni pizza and garlic sticks have become a weekly standard at our house because of the Pizza Joint! We are never disappointed. The food has always been delicious, hot and served by a friendly staff. Only disappointment has been when they close for vacation.

Wood fired pizza and wings were phenomenal! Great hospitality, great staff, fantastic service and have never felt so welcomed to a restaurant before. Food is truly made with love and we'll be sure to swing through and visit again.

It's a little out of the way and I thought we were lost but I'm glad we kept going. We read that it was great pizza and decided to make a trip. Not only was the pizza amazing but Peter and the rest of the staff were great. It was nice to meet a local that was so helpful. Not... More

Sure didn't look like much from the outside...but, oh what a delicious meal was waiting for us on the inside! We stopped here after spending a full day tubing on the Rainbow River. Exhausted, hungry, and not knowing the area, we chose the Pizza Joint based on all the previous positive reviews. It did not disappoint! Everything we ordered was... More
