If the owner is working you will get a good pizza. His whole wheat has excellent taste and the Italian salad is good.

Terribly overpriced. No manager on the clock. Extremely thin and greasy pizza. Total mess. I spoke with the owner over the phone and would not refund.

Consistently good pizza. Try the WOW - garlic sauce, cheese, crab meat - add fresh asparagus and feta cheese - it is beyond WOW. Great place to take the kids and families.

This place is a real gem. The kids can stand in the window and watch the pizzas being made. There is a great juke box filled with oldies. The pizza is some of the best in the area with all fresh ingredients. Try "The Board."

Locally owned. Hand made with a window so the kids can watch. Last time we went they did not take plastic so bring cash or a check. Must visit!

So yummy! We love trying out different pizza places. We ordered take out. Our order consisted of a large pepperoni pizza and an order of cheese bread. The cost was pretty high, $35. We did not care for the cheese bread. It was a specialty item not listed on the menu, with several types of cheese. But the pepperoni pizza... More

Now this is a treat if you like pizza.. all ingredients are fresh and the pizza man throws his pizza dough in front of you. Great family place. He makes traditional tomato based and other sauces. We have tried several and they are all good. We love

Burned pizza crust, limp salad. $73 for one cheese pizza, one extremely salty pizza with 2 meats 3 veggies, one vinegary salad for two spilling off the inadequate plate. No liquor, soft drinks for 3 adults 3 children. Maybe the birthday child should not have made the pizzas. Maybe some one should have mixed the salad dressing and added it... More
