“Great price but.....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

The cheese pizza is $5 but there is almost no cheese on it and it is paper thin dough. You don't feel like you have eaten when you are finished.

“Great food and value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Love the "messes" that you can order at Comellas -- they have so many combinations; something for everyone (Lazy C's is our favorite) This location is almost exclusively take-out. People are often lined up for pickups, so it wouldn't be relaxing to sit in the midst of that. The big draw is the $5 cheese pizza, which is amazing, but unfortunately there always seems to be a wait of at least an hour when our order includes the cheese pizza. This location is very popular, convenient and a great value, just seems that sometimes they can't handle the volume but we hope they succeed and thrive!!

“Nice people, decent atmosphere for its category, so so food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012 via mobile

Should be better but overly sweet marinara as a base component for everything on the menu makes the food just so so.

“Food is delicious and a fantastic value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

Haven't been in a couple of months but always love the $5 cheese pizza and "mess" which is a combination of whatever you want or choose the special of the day (It could be eggplant, ziti, sausage,meatballs). It's a ton of food for cheap money - great for when you just don't have time to cook. They're always busy at suppertime so make sure you allow enough time. No need to wait - just call ahead! I always take out but there are tables for 2 or 4 there.

“Surprising, not in a good way”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2012 via mobile

This place is very busy so we assumed it was good, didn't turn out that way. Food was extremely average. When calling the order in we got put on hold forever, called back, and got put on hold again. Not going back.
