A taste of home.

As we currently live in Asia F&o's was on the top of our list for places we must eat when we return. Great Chicago style pizza. Wings my kids couldn't get enough of. A true taste of home

Went to Felix and Oscar's for lunch. The food was some of the best my husband and I have eaten. The Italian food is so good. I had the Fire Burger and it was outstanding. While it doesn't have a lot of curb appeal, the food is well worth a trip to this restaurant.

This has been a favorite since we moved to town 30 years ago. Recent upgrades to the building are amazing. Food and staff is always wonderful. The online ordering is a MUST DO for those with impatient children. Call ahead/online order, walk in and dinner is served. Sunday buffet is wonderful and so affordable. It's my hope that they are...

I am sitting at the bar right now. I came in to order a pizza to go. I have been here for 20 minutes and not one person, who works here has asked if I needed anything. Must be too busy serving the 2 other customers at the bar. I am glad there was a regular at the bar, she... More

Like most of the reviews here say, the service isn't very good. We had to seat ourselves when we got to the restaurant and flag down a waiter for menus and drinks. After that, it took 10+ minutes to get those drinks and we went ahead and ordered. The next time we saw our waiter was when our food was... More

No food in the house, not feeling well, ordered a bunch of food for delivery. I ordered online, always a bonus. The delivery was on time, it took about an hour, but I knew that when I ordered. I ordered a small thin crust two topper. It was good. The crust was a bit crunchy. I like that. It was... More

We ate here tonight after we bought a groupon. I saw that over 1000 people bought it so I thought it should be good. My advice is do not dine in!!! The place is run down and the service is horrendous. We waited so long to be greeted and it took forever to get our food. The waitress did not... More
