“Great pizza, even better experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

OMG this place is so awesome! We came across this place trying to find somewhere to eat on the way back from San Luis Obispo. Can you say Pizza SHACK. However, there were several cars parked, always a good sign, so we went for it and glad we did. The wait is about 10 minutes but well worth the wait. I love thin crust and they have it! Don't know if they offer different styles. There are 3 stools for people (kids) to sit and watch the pizza being made. There is a cooler where you can pick your drink. Outside, there are long picnic tables, chess/checkers tables and heat lamps. Bring a jacket because you are close to the beach and if you are there in the evening, it can be chilly outside. So awesome. We now stop there EVERY time we come back from Santa Barbara and points North of Los Angeles if we are on the 101.

“Surprisingly good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

My pizza was perfect, and just how I like it -- thin and crispy. But I won't give it a "5" because my son asked for his with "light cheese" and there must have been a mixup because it seemed like it had "extra" cheese. Nice outdoor area,

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2012

You have to wait because each pizza is handmade right before your eyes. They have been in business over 50 years! It is a landmark and historic.

“Amazing locals only pizza place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

A pizza place like no other. You just have to experience it for yourself. Order pizza by the slice or a whole pie. Baked fresh all day long. A Ventura institution. It probably qualifies as a dive but those are the best places. Take a picture of yourself in front and give the employee on duty and extra tip. Outside seating only. Gets cold down there so dress warm.
