Yummy

We loved the pizza! We ordered it for take out to take with us up to libby hill on a picnic. It's thick and delicious (they do have a thin crust you can order) the sauce was very good!!! Also loved the location makes me want to go back and dine in.

If you're in a hurry, DO order from the special quick-serve lunch menu. If not, well, don't change your mind or get upset when it seems to take a while. Personally, I love the Supreme Salad and that's the only reason I go. To this day, I think I've only had Bottoms Up pizza when it was delivered for an... More

Some people call this "the best pizza in Richmond." Apparently these people are on very strong meds. It's nowhere near the best, in fact easily some of the worst; I'm being kind giving them 2 stars. First the crust: it wasn't soft enough, it was too thick even for Chicago style pizza, and was rather stale, not to mention bland.... More

Only been for lunch eating in and the pizza and calzones are awesome! Tried once ordering takeout pizza and was quite disappointed in the pizza size - seemed to be just not the same size as ordering slices I guess.

This was my first (and last) time at this place. I heard it was voted best pizza in Richmond-- and wow I'm wondering how this could be. Service was weak, pizza was super bready and the location was practically an industrial area. My condolences to Richmond if this is really the best pizza you get to enjoy in your home... More

Our trolley tour guide said that if you love pizza, you have to go there. Well, we didn't love it. The sauce had a strange flavor that we didn't like. The wings, however, were very good. Seems like a popular place, the pizza just isn't for me.

Pizza is good and original. Drink your water and take your blood pressure meds because the pizza is salty. This place is too loud and hot to eat in...get carryout and keep your sanity.

We stopped here to grab a drink and a quick bite to eat. We chose to sit outside on the rooftop deck. When our waitress greeted us I asked her about their “local brews” (the menu suggested we ask about them) but she was unable to tell me anything about their beers so I just ordered one I was familiar...

This place is close to our home so we decided to try it.... We had a large pizza thick crust half cheese half bacon, with a side house salad with house dressing. Flavors were good and the pizza was huge, but the crust was too crunchy for my taste. I prefer thicker crust because it's usually softer but this was... More
