Amazing Pizza!

Stopped in for a pizza pie. We ordered the loaded pizza, without anchovies. Our pizza crust was phenomenal, and the topping were ample and delicious. Kinda pricey, but we were downtown.

Stopped in for dinner our first night in Salem. Staff was unfriendly and the food was not very good. Ordered a large sandwich and it was actually quite small. Chicken was overcooked and hard to chew. Would not go back here again.

The food was awesome. The service a little iffy. The staff was sweet but a little distracted and when we walked in it smelled as if the place had just put a fire out. The burnt smell took away from the experience. Not to mention the bathroom looked like it needed a serious cleaning. Food was great though.

The pizza is good. The sandwiches are amazing. They deliver. The wings are spicy. It's good, and you can order online super easy.

I know why they call this the engine house. I ordered chicken fingers and they were burned beyond edible. The food and service was horrible, and that's being very kind. My meal was not worth eating. Even after picking the burned coating off the chicken, the chicken still tasted bad. Save your money and frustration. This place is horrible.

Love their pizza here. Great little pizza place in the center of Salem. Quick service and you can eat there or take out.

Has gone downhill - evidently the business sold within the last year. Workers are careless and rude. Hopefully you remember everything you order cause they won't.

Subs, pizza, AND beer?! What else do I need?! I didn't try the pizza but the subs were delicious and I'm sure the pizza is too. Small place but quick service. Love this restaurant!

Thank Chelsea L
