With all the fast food pizza chains around, it can be hard to find great pizza, but this place has it. Had a great pizza meal, good service and good value. We did a traditional type pizza (deluxe) it was excellent. The family beside us had a bit of everything, they had three girls, 2 grand parents and 2 parents.... More

Our family of four ate lunch here and were very pleased with this place. An older gentleman (I believe he's the owner) greeted us at the door and assisted us with finding seats. Our waitress was attentive and friendly. We were trying to decide which house made sangria to purchase, so she brought us free samples to try! We went... More

Hello, I am happy to hear that you enjoyed the sangria as well as the food. We would love to have you visit again. I would like to explain our pricing a little bit. We are a locally owned, hometown diner, with a hell of a lot of pride in what we serve. That is why we have home made... More

This pizza is the best gluten free pizza ever! It is the second time I have eaten it and it was still delicious. Medium thickness crust not paper thin like most gluten free crust. Told my husband I would drive from Detroit area to eat this pizza!

Yes, we have had good luck with this pizza. We are happy to find something for the special diets. We are happy to hear a good review for this pizza. The gluten free eaters are the best critics. We will look forward to seeing you again. ~Marie~ More

So, they can charge a lot because of their location - and because the food is good. We split the wedge salad and a pizza - though now I can't remember what size. I believe it was a 14" pizza. The salad was great. Quarter head of iceberg lettuce, blue cheese, ranch dressing, an enormous amount of bacon (too much),... More

We figured this place was a no brainier because of its high ranking. Don't be fooled. We had a few appetizers and a drink. Would have had dinner and more drinks but our server wasn't very attentive the place was not very busy it seems she was more interested in getting her side work done than waiting on tables. Won't...

The Spicy Pizza we had today was probably the best pizza I've ever eaten. The waitresses and staff were attentive and helpful. There is a reason this restaurant ranks so highly. The food is REALLY good, the price is right, and the location was right in the middle of things.

I was lured by Trip Advisor's ratings and local recommendations. We were seated immediately by the door. Not my first choice, but the wait would have sent me elsewhere. The drink order was quick as well as return to take our meal order. Our waitress was attentive except at the end when we were waiting for the check. The food... More
