Good variety of Pizza

The tortilla spring rolls were good but the size was small. BBQ Chicken pizza was very good. My favorite was tostada chicken pizza. It had all the elements of Mexican taste with crunchy tostada ribbons. Spicy Chipotle pizza was also very good with right amount of spicy sauce. The tiramisu was out... read more

If you can look past the underpaid, underage, immature staff that operate this place and simply rate the food it still doesn't deserve more than 2 stars. One for serving food that isn't poisonous and the other for being able do prepare the food in a timely manner. I hadn't been to one of those places in many years and... More

I go here when I visit the movie theater across the street because the service and food are always good. The Pizza is good but I go for the salads which I prefer.

The menu here is awesome. Anything from different kinds of pizza and salads to unique dishes such as chile relleno. They offer light bites in addition to the heavy fare. Kids and adults in the family all enjoy it here.

Wow, has this place has gone dramatically downhill. The food is average, the pea soup is terribly bland. The waiter was borderline incompetent and unfriendly skip this place altogether. And it is very overpriced.

My grandson and I decided to get lunch before heading into the theater and thought we couldn't go wrong with pizza. The kid's menu was easy enough to decipher for my grandson, but I had multiple places to look for lunch options. The menus were at the table, which I don't think is how CPK usually does it elsewhere. There... More

Again, it is nice to go to a restaurant when it is empty, but the service follow the emptiness. It is a chain, so you know what you get when you go there.

I hadn't been to this restaurant in over a year and I was impressed with a few improvements they have made. First, they use to have white sliced sandwich bread un-toasted with cold butter as the appetizer. Now they have sourdough toasted bread with olive oil and herbs. Simple but great change. The bacon in the California Cobb is thicker... More

We shared a white pizza with spinach, bacon and cheese and had salads as well. Good food, great service, bright airy restaurant. And it was just across the street from the theatre where we were going next.
