Loved it

We were staying at Grizzly Jacks and came here based on the number of good reviews for a pizza place. I'm always skeptical about pizza when we are on vacation. It's either done right or its a big miss. We were all very pleasantly surprised. Great buttery crust, good sauce, and fresh toppings. Our... read more

We stayed in Peru to visit Starved Rock for a few days over spring break. Based on reviews from Trip advisor-we ordered pizza and salad from here and picked up. I have to say that I really wasn't impressed with the pizza. The crust was pretty thick for thin crust and a little well done. They don't provide an itemized... More

We enjoy their pizza almost as much as their sandwiches. If one wants a meal that fills you without emptying your pockets and taste great this is the place. Traverlers should enjoy all menu items but I highly recommend lasagna or possibly a gyro plate. Enjoy.

I met with a group for our recent book-club meeting and this was a great place to do so. They were able to accommodate to our larger group and let us each do separate tickets. Some of the group shared a pizza, while others ordered a salad or sandwich. I ordered cheese sticks. They had a decent selection or alcoholic... More

I have visited this place often while travelling from out of state towards my hometown in Mendota. I am a big fan of their Italian Beef sandwich and Gyros. The restaurant is spacious and the servers are often really nice. I would recommend the sandwiches over the pizzas any day. Service is quick, restaurant is clean. For as long as... More

Great sub sandwiches and gyros. The Italian Beef sub is the best in the area. The pizza is average. Service is good. Pricing is good. When you pick up a carry out it is always ready. The employees are friendly and this restaurant is obviously managed properly. The dining room has a lot of space and there is parking in... More

While the pizza was good, it felt like I was settling because I could not find a better place. Does not compare to NYC or Chicago pizza but certainly passable.
