Great food at great prices.

We came to Salem on a budget, and had to play it smart. We ate here 3 separate times, and tried something different on each visit. All of our food was ready quickly and prepared accurately. The subs were great, but being from Chicago (where our pizza is very different) I wasn't as crazy about their... read more

the food is always great and the prices are fair. New owners are taking the restraint in an awesome new direction with lots of remodels and new items to the menu. I've been eating here for years and the food has never been better then now. The wait staff and counter girls are always trying their best to keep up... More

The new owner Brad and his idiots who work the counter should be escorted out of town for thinking they can run a pizza place. 50% of their orders are incorrect, one girl (African American) is so angry all the time she just be on a forced program to work their where the owner gets a tax credit, the blonde...

We had the meatball and sausage sub. Wow, delicious! And very affordable. The bread was soft and fresh. And the meat was cooked to perfection! This meal is definitely worth the money!

I had a pepperoni pizza which was delicious. The crust was baked well with just the right amount of crispness and chewiness. My wife had the eggplant parm which was also very good.

VERY limited seating.. The crowd comes in spurts. I got two slices but whoa dude one would've done. One slice is normally 3 regular slices of pie from my neighborhood. Neat atmosphere and you may even see fire trucks depart from the real engine house across the street.

First, this place has good reviews, and it was super close by so I was looking forward to trying it out. Went for late night pizza for the kids and got ignored as soon as I walked in. But the real question is what am I supposed to do with a pizza unsliced. Do you have to request a sliced... More

This is a very good place to have Pizza or hamburgers in Salem. It's not a fancy place, but food is very good. Service is friendly and they have good beer on tap.
