When you call in an order and they tell you it'll be a half hour...it never is, it'll at least be an hour wait. What a joke. Food isn't that great for the long wait...even after you called ahead!

Always have great food. They don't take reservations so over dinner hours it can be a bit of a wait. Not a very large place. The pizza is wonderful and served on plastic lunch trays. Wonderful service and superb lunch specials!

Love this place... Great pizza, salads (Greek) amazing. I highly recommend this place as a hole in the wall near downtown Dallas. Good place for a quite beer with a date and pizza

Clearly a neighborhood favorite. The pizza was thin crust rectangular, served on cafeteria trays. We loved our chicken pesto pizza. The pepperoni pizza needed a little more herbs in its sauce. The other entrees we saw were generous portions. Great old style decor and atmosphere with many locals who both knew each other and the staff. Definitely worth a visit... More

OMG the pizza is the best I've ever had it's always hot and fresh with a crispy crunchy crust. I love the location and the service is always good.

The pizza here is beyond the bland, chain store pizza that is so prevalent in Dallas. Not only can you get a great take-out pizza, but there is ample room to dine-in. I have also eaten pasta dishes here that were done to perfection. Beer is available on tap and in bottles. You get a true neighborhood feel that is... More

This is one of my favorite little local restaurants. It's stuck in the middle of a strip center and not much for atmosphere but the food has always been spot on. The pizza is thin,, crispy crust served on a red plastic lunch tray with tons of options for toppings. My favorite pasta is the spicy chicken scaloppini or the... More

Met family here, not in our area, but a good meeting place. Very easy, laid back and pleasant. Lots of smiling facing from workers in this small place. Food was very good, wish it was closer I'd come here weekly. Pasta fresh and well prepared, meatballs were a perfect blend of meats. Easy to like this place, easy prices, good... More

Our son took us here one evening and my wife and I both had the same thought. This place reminds us of a great little restaurant in Carmel, CA. The food and service was great. Very reasonable prices. This isn't a pizza parlor and it doesn't have the feel o a chain restaurant either. We split an ample portion of... More
