Best Pizza in Town

One of my favorite places to go for pizza..by the slice. My favorite is the Jo-Jo...which is their white sauce with tomatoes and shrimp and feta cheese. Seems like the guys always end up ordering the meat master and it is a huge hit. Their prices are very reasonable the pizza is great and one slice... read more

At our table, everyone ordered something different and we were all very happy. My growing son ate his pizza and wanted to order another slice. The waiter was great and expedited the request as we were pretty much finished and happily stuffed. The piece of pizza was quickly devoured and we will be returning soon! btw- you may have to...

Well first, I will say the pizza was great, lots of flavor and good quality for the money. The servers seemed a little to chatty with each other, resulting in slow service and refills. Overall was a good experience and I will be back next time I'm in town

This place was recommended by the clerk in our motel. I am a pizza lover. Never meet a pizza I didn't like. But this was a high lite of many pizzas. The problem was to choice. Waitress recommended Mexican. When it was delivered, that is beyond belief. Well it didn't only look great it tasted better. Take the time and... More

This is the best pizza I have ever had. But the service has gone seriously downhill. Sunday's pizza was barely warm when it arrived at the table. The place was not busy. It used to be really busy on Sunday's lunch, so I suspect the bad service is catching up with them. It seemed to be a flirting problem with... More

My friend took me here on a visit. It was Saturday night around 7:30 so the place was packed. We were told it would be about a 40 min wait for the two of us. We said we'd wait at the bar. Luckily as we got over there two seats were being freed up. I'd hoped that they told us... More

Just went back for the first time in 20 years tonight. It was decent, not great. Service - ok. Table was dirty. Then wiped down with a very wet rag that left the table covered. Then wiped off with 1 napkin? Kinda got off to an unclean feel. Beer - not a huge selection, but good options. Major bonus points... More

We took a group of 21 (adults/High School students) for dinner on a Thursday evening. Location was ok, not for walking, but parking for a charter bus was a disaster. Took the driver 30 minutes to find a place big enough for the bus. (Public parking about 2 blocks away. $5 a space after 5pm.....that's $30 for a bus and... More
