The food is good at both locations, but the service is better at the Hewitt location. I have been there during lunch, dinner on weekends and weeknights, avoid on the weekends, just never enough help.

ordered a large sausage pizza to go, felt a little heavy, got it home and couldn't finish but 2-3 slices in one sitting. covered in vast amount of crumbled sausage, thick cheese layer, tasty crust. certainly deserves 'best pizza in waco' title.

We ate dinner here while on a trip to visit Baylor university. The restaurant is unique and has a certain charm to it. The old TV shows (Little Rascals, I Love Lucy and The Three Stooges were fun to watch and helped pass the time as we waited (a little too long) for our food to arrive. Our server was... More

They have been voted best pizza in Waco for years, and for good reason. I've read some not so rave reviews and have no idea what they're talking about. They have only been slow once and they were super busy... and worth the wait. The waitstaff is great, and I'll go back again and again.

We took our two young grandchildren here to eat. Atmosphere is very dark. Everything has a dirty/gritty/greasy feel to it. We ate here anyway. First we got an order of nachos. It was really good. The put some chili and a little cheese on tortillas and bake them for a few minutes in the oven. Funny how something so simple... More

So I'm not suppose to eat carbs! But I love pizza so I called to see if they could make me a pizza with out the crust. The girl that answered was confused beyond help but she did give me to the manger who said no problem he would make it himself. I get home and find a full pizza... More

This has been one of my favorite places to eat in Waco since I was a kid. It's virtually been unchanged - every room is different, there are "secret" doors and passages, and fun Far Side comics to read on the bathroom walls. The pizza is great, the waitstaff is friendly. A must if you are going to Waco!
