Friendliest restaurant in town

My husband and I have been dining here regularly for several years. The food is very good and the roast beef sandwich is the best we have had. The service is wonderful and the atmosphere is great. Prices are very reasonable and it is very family friendly. No complaints

The only pizza restaurant in the area that makes their pies with mozzarella cheese. I have not visited the dining room, although it always seems to be busy. Staff very friendly and accommodating.

The best pizza and salads! You can't go wrong with anything on the menu but do yourself a favor and get some garlic cheese bread, pizza and a Bacon ranch salad. The staff is great, too.

Exceptional little family-owned pizza joint that's been around since I was a kid. Do yourself a favor and stop in for a Clown Special and the Italian Stallion. You won't regret it!

We enjoyed our recent meal at this establishment. It has good pizza at good prices. It is clean, well managed and has a charming "Mom & Pop" feel about it. The are well established and have been in operation since the 1970's. Easily a local favorite.

Pog's as the local call it has been serving pizza and pasta for years. Their signature pizza is the Clown which is similar to a supreme other places.

Their clown pizza is the best pizza I have ever had. I have been fortunate enough to travel and still to this day have yet to find a better pizza.
