Great pizza at a Waco original!

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... read more

I grew up coming here, the pizza always had too much sauce. Now they have changed and you get pizza not a bunch of gushy sauce. Thank you so much for making a better pizza.

We visited the hewitt location over the weekend. I am very picky when it comes to pizza. This was close to where we were staying and I'm so glad we found this place. The pizza is great. Yes it has a ton of toppings that fall off as soon as you pick up a slice but it is probably some... More

Always a staple as to "the best pizza in town." The preparation and ingredience are the best around. I keep my simple with the one topping peperoni so I can taste the cheese and peperoni.

I just don't see what people like about this pizza. It's just a pizza crust with the topping laid on the top. When you pick up your piece of pizza all the toppings fall off. Not to mention I got sick after I ate it... I guess it's just not my kind of pizza....

Absolutely the best pizza in town! We ordered "The Works" and when I say it had the works, I mean "The Works"! This pizza is completely covered with meats, cheese , mushrooms, peppers, even shrimp! One slice of the large is a meal. Pizza was crisp, hot out of the oven. Atmosphere can be described as dark, with many hidden... More

This was our first time to visit here, but it won't be our last. Next time we are in Waco, we will make sure to stop in. Pizza was great...crispy-but-sturdy crust, fabulous toppings...all around delicious pizza. Good family place, decent service.

I can't believe that people still think this place is the best pizza in town. It's some weird attachment. I admit the pizza is good but it's not Rock Star pizza. It takes forever to get the pizza. The place is never clean. The booths are falling apart. Service is iffy on a good day. Bad reviews make zero difference... More
