This thin-crust by-the-slice specialty place also has delivery but we usually stop by downtown to enjoy the casual atmosphere. Order at the counter and choose a rickety table or head outside to the lively scene at the top of State Street. We would suggest trying the mac&cheese pizza if you want a rich, tasty, filling twist.

Large high volume pizza and pop place on State Street which is popular with students and travelers alike. Really enjoyed their thin crust pizza and the salads looked good. I had to laugh when I saw the photo on tripadvisor as we ordered the mac and cheese pizza and it was awesome. My daughter loved it. Lots of carbs.

I imagine this place is great for college kids after a night at the bars but I wouldn't return anytime before midnight. Pizzas were just what you want after a night of drinking, quick, easy and greasy. It is just not what I want when eating out at any other time.

I was a bit put off at first because I had never been here before and it wasn't clear where to get in line or where to order from or anything like that. Also, the pizzas weren't labeled. I was grateful when the guy said that the mac and cheese pizza was something they were famous for, so I had... More

Fast and good service. Loved a slice of briskets pizza, pesto and mushrooms pizza and tomato and cheese. Wow, the pizza crust is thin and crunchy. A great place to eat pizza in Madison!

My kids love the funky macaroni and cheese pizza; talk about a carbohydrate bomb! State Street location is great place to people watch.

Being from Chicago, I am picky about my pizza and this did not disappoint. Great crust with some crunch, natural fold in your hand with the large cut slices. Very tasty and satisfying for a late night dinner. I had delivered to my room and ordering over the internet was a breeze with very quick delivery.
