We went in early afternoon for lunch. Ordered a pepperoni roll and a few pizzas (white, pepperoni/sausage, and salami/olive) The staff who took our order was friendly and gave some good recommendations The white pizza and pepperoni/sausage both tasted great. The salami/olive was too geasy/ salty I hope the restaurant had a bad sanitation day and not a larger management... More

Quality pizza, good service and fast. I tried the creative "festivus" pizza. It wasn't like anything I've ever had!

The rave reviews for this place are very undeserved. This is a tiny operation that can’t handle a dinner surge (6:00 pm on a Saturday night) with table availability or timely cooking of pizzas in a tiny oven. The pizzas are good but its local competitors are just as good - if not better, - and served quickly. The competition... More

Hard Knox pizza offers wood fired pizzas made from fresh ingredients. They have real mozz, fresh herbs and spices and an eclectic selection of pizzas.

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
