“Great Pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

They have a good crust and serve piping hot, cheesy, high quality pizza. It is not a place to have a sit down date or a night out. It is really only for delivery or pickup. This said, if you want a good pizza at a reasonable price, this is the place.

“Awesome for delivery and take out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012 via mobile

Ordered delivery from here for the hundredth time (maybe more or less). Delivery is always pretty speedy and they deliver to our apartment complex. I really like the sauce and the thin crunchy crust of the pizza. I often get the antipasta and I am a fan of their calzones as well. Very consistent and fast delivery.

“Great pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012

Got a pizza from here on our way back home on vacation. Pizza was done only 10 minutes after ordering, and we took it back to our hotel room. Wow, was it good. Counter guy gave us paper plates and napkins for our room (we didn't dine in). Really good pizza for really good price.

“One of the best pizzas in the area--especially for take-out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2009

You know the ingredients are fresh when you see the chef across the street at the supermarket buying a small basil plant for the leaves! Yes, the ingredients in these pizzas are fresh and delicious, from the basil to the fresh mushrooms! The crust is truly baked in a brick oven for a nice thin crusted pizza with a hint of a char. It is best to get as takeout when you can rush the pizza home and keep the crust hot and crispy. They do a good delivery business, but the crust can get soft in the bags.

Eating there is not that exciting: there's not much atmosphere except for the tv being on sometimes, and the gal at the counter who also brings you your order is pleasant, but almost businesslike. Perhaps because they're not used to customers dining in. There are only a few tables, probably as most people just come to wait for their order to go.

Besides the pizza: their Greek salad and house salads are bountiful and fresh, a whole lot of iceberg lettuce with lots of sliced onions, some tomato, pepperoncini, chopped olives, and for the Greek salad, stuffed grape leaves and feta cheese. All with your choice of dressings and a slice of garlic bread. Gyros are good-sized and quite tasty. Curly fries are tasty and crispy when eaten at the restaurant. All items are in good quantity.

So for the best deal, call ahead, order, and pick up your food to enjoy at home!
