An economic meal.

Place was recommended by a coworker. The place is economical in its decor. It is a bar on one side, and a pizza counter on the other. There you have it. 2 of us for a beer each, wings and a Stromboli to split. For a total of $20, we had a decent meal and a cold beer. I selected... read more

if you looking for somewhere local to hang out after work and have a drink, you need to try Empire. They have a great atmosphere and it's where the local's hang out. You can get pizza by the slice which is great also. All of their food is EXCELLENT!!!!

We were looking for a good pizza while visiting Rock Hill and we found it. Being New Yorkers we appreciate a good pie and Empire Pizza didn't let us down. Took the meatball pie and a 2-liter Pepsi (a natural pairing) to our hotel room and enjoyed it all.

We were greeted by a young lady who did not want to be there. So we were seated with a scowl. But then we had our server come by, Phylicia. What ray of sunshine. The entire experience turned positive. The pizza was done right and served promptly with a smile. The restaurant itself was clean and inviting, but like other... More

Food, service and wait staff are all good! The food items are plenty! If my sister and I go, we share a plate and I shared a small pizza with a friend last week! It is a good deal for the price you pay!

We eat here often, most times it is great. This time this location was very busy and very loud. We always get salads and share a pizza or pasta dishes. It was hard to talk over the noise and service was average for a busy night. Food was great, service times were a bit long due to large crowd. We... More

Don't overthink this. It's a pizza parlor/bar in a strip mall. Good generic Italian fare, great pizza served in a family and friends kind of local environment. Be warned: The bar side tends to get crowded after about 4 p.m.

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
