I LOVE the Tavern in Valley Junction - is this a different manager/owner? Pizza sauce had no flavor much different from the Valley Junction pizza. Service was mediocre - onion rings not hot and pretty greasy. Will make the drive to Valley Junction next time.

We ordered ours with extra cheese because we observed the pizzas at the tables near us and decided we like more cheese than the normal amount at Tavern. It actually had plenty of... More
