They have it all. Horrible service, bad food and not a good atmosphere. Waited to be waited on, ordered wine, served in old fashioned glasses because they were "out of wine glasses", ordered salad, garlic knots and pizza. Waiter asked if we wanted the salad and garlic knots first, so we said yes. 40 minutes later we asked about the... More

We went to this restaurant today based on the decent reviews... the menu is quite extensive for a small pizza "joint". The food came fairly quickly.... the pizza was thin crust, with excellent flavour, reasonably generous toppings and it came hot. The rest of the food we saw (burgers, calzones and salads all looks appetizing. The staff were very pleasant... More

This is the original of 3 locations in the Rock Hill/Fort Mill area. This is the smallest of the three and aside from the small bar and even smaller restaurant side of this establishment there is nothing but big flavor and great portions. I've had a Philly Cheesesteak sandwich in Philadelphia that I never thought could be matched outside the... More

After ordering food that was incorrectly prepared, a new order was brought to the table. I'm allergic to cayenne and made sure to let the bartender know, but my new order seemed to consist of nothing but cayenne and the contempt of an unhappy kitchen. After rushing to the hospital and having an epi shot, I called the restaurant only... More

We stopped here with a group of 10 on our way to Boone. It's right off I 77. So it's easy to get on and off the highway. The pizza was New York style. The crust with thin and the sauce was tasty. The place is very clean and the service was very fast. A 16in pizza with one topping... More

Was staying in the area and decided to try their pizza to go. A little pricey but typical for 'supreme' type pizza. Wait was pretty short and the pie was really big. I ate on it for two days. The pizza was really good and worth giving a try.

Try the garlic knots. You may have to increase your exercise routine but well worth it. The wings beat Hooters hands down (Recommend the garlic Parm and the honey hot). Overall really great food.

As a native New Yorker, I was surprised to be introduced to this place. At first I didn't catch it in the name, but inside the wall decor had a tasteful combo of pix and street signs of old NY. Menu item descriptions were what made me catch on: 5 Borough Pizza... I had the Philly and fries. Excellent. Well... More
