It's a great lunch spot. Their individual pizzas hit the spot as far as size goes. They are always coming up with unique pizzas. The other day I went and one of their specials was an BLT pizza-yummmmmmmmmmmmm. Don't be afraid to try their specials. The only thing I would change about this place is keeping ranch dressing on hand.... More

We arrived on a Friday night. Busy place so pizza must be good. Unfortunately we were not able to try the pizza due to poor customer service. When we arrived there were only a few tables available. I went to get a table while my husband ordered the pizza. He was the next one in line to order when I... More

I am not a big pizza eater, but this is a place I would go back to. They dough is crispy and the toppings fresh. Also try their meatball appetizers. Fantastic!

I had the Iron Mike Pizza, my husband had the Barbed Wire pizza and they were seriously the best pizza we have ever eaten. My husband wanted to try the rootbeer, but wanted refills and decided to get a coke instead, but the owner brought a glass over and said it's on the house so he could try it. Customer... More

Excellent fresh pizza with some unique topping choices such as fresh basil, thyme, rosemary or oregano that are not found elsewhere. Love how the pepperoni is sliced and layered. Fresh mozzarella. Excellent.

Do not let the small store front stature of this culinary diamond fool you. The pizza and personnel are absolutely great! After moving to Knoxville and sampling in the downtown district what some told me the "best" pizza place in town I was void of a satisfying pizza fix. Saddened; my search for a great Knoxville slice continued on. Enter... More

We ate here for the first time on Thursday while on a business trip in town and it's on a short list for the best pizza we've had. The ingredients are made fresh and we decided on a red pesto sauce pizza with fresh mozzarella with pepperoni, red peppers, and fresh oregano. After devouring their 12 inch pizza, which is the...
