The food is good enough to warrant its own carry out window. Three garlic rolls come with entrees. This place is very popular with families and university students. Their wine selection is small but good choices. Parking isn't always easy. Across the avenue is another old local favorite- Wall's Ice Cream.

This is a popular restaurant with university students and everyone else! Some of the greatest garlic rolls around! Always piles of food, whatever you order, and delicious. We've had most of their meals and have never been disappointed. And the pizza is Great!

The place hasn't changed much since the 80s. It's a college pizza joint right by University of Miami. It's decorated like a college sports bar. It gets packed. The pizza and garlic knots are delicious. You can watch the pizza chef making pizzas while you wait for your food as they have a partially open kitchen. They serve Coca-Cola products.

We ate here on the recommendation of a local friend and we were a party of 8. They were crowded and busy with take out, college students, and families on a Friday night. The facility was cleaned and priced right and everything our party ordered was delicious. We had fabulous garlic rolls, buffalo wings, eggplant parm, and pizza. Would definitely... More

It is a shame the poor customer service at this location, we were a party of nine and since we our party was incomplete, did not allow us to sit at the table and asked us to please sit outside it being 93 degrees outside.
