Variety is The Pizza

The ambiance is nothing special, but the variety of pizza choices is great; some unusual choices. Not to say that they don't have the more typical stuff as well, but have an adventure!

Their "small" chicken salad is always to big for me to eat all of it. The sub's are my husbands favorite. And their pizza is so good and stringy the way I like it. I've never had a messed up order either. Love them!

Tried the spaghetti and meatballs with a Greek salad, salad was way better. Not impressed with the meatballs, very bland but spaghetti was good. Big portions so order accordingly ;)

This place looks like your typical "pizza place by the side of the road" establishment. But don't be fooled. The pizzas are excellent, the service is friendly and prompt and the menu has a lot of variety. Actually, the "typical" - that word again - Greek/Italian pizza place menu. But wait....you didn't try the desert! These are wonderful. Matter of... More

Love going to this little hideaway on Leicester highway. The subs are delicious, the pizza is amazing, and the service is expedient. My wife and I frequently dine and will continue too for years too come!

We ordered spaghetti and a cheese pizza. Nothing spectacular. The cheese was good but the tomato sauce didn't compliment it. Whoever cooked up the sauce needs to find another recipe. Barlic bread was not cooked enough. Service was friendly but a bit on the slow side. Will probably not return.

We started with the small order if bacon cheese fries and and they were WONDERFUL, (and a lot of them I cant imagine the large size) then a small cheese pizza for the kids and... More

I was lured here by a friend stating that is the equivalent of some of the more progressive and exciting restaurants in Asheville. The servers are friendly enough and attentive to your needs but that's about the best thing i received that day. We had the cheese and bacon fries, which were a HUGE order for a large, but that's...

Our first restaurant in Asheville the night we moved in, we saw lots of cars and thought "it's close and must be pretty good". My wife ordered pizza and I had the tortellini, neither was up to what we consider decent Italian. The pizza was runny and had an off taste, the tomato sauce in my tortellini was far too... More
