A new second location

I have occasionally stopped by the original location in Marblehead over the years and always found it great for takeout.

Maybe I shouldn't have ordered the mesclun salad...wilted greens, rubbery "toasted pecans"(how is this possible?!) funky tasting cranberries, oh and a bag of Ken's dressing thrown in the salad container on top of the food. Yuck. The pizza at the Marblehead location is good - unique, but heavy on the stomach.

Summer time, winter time, any time good take out is a life-saver. We recently branched out from pizza to their sandwiches and, most impressively, their cobb salad. I mean honestly, who orders take out cobb salad? Well, if you haven't had it you are missing a true delight: real avocado, real crumbled blue cheese, real eggs really great taste. Thank... More

Eggplant & sausage pizza was fantastic, lots of toppings...sausage was not thrown on but had just enough in each bite that someone like me who is not a fan... More
