“Good Pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

Granddaughter picked because she liked the name - and wanted pizza. Very friendly staff - family oriented - had great conversation with other diners who were entertaining an exchange student from Germany - so it was a very interesting lunch as well as VERY good food. Not a fancy spot - but would recomment. Good value.

“As if Herb and Lou made pizza...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2012

Had to chuckle at the name but the pizza was actually quite good. Crisp enough crust and a nice amount of toppings. Will most def go back.

“What you might imagine a restaurant in the middle of Iowa would look like.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2010

The large room is divided between a pizza restaurant in the front and a bar area in the back, but you can bring your food into the bar and vice versa. I had a very good Ruben sandwich (I just ordered a half because I was not very hungry) and a Bud Light. Listen to the conversation of the locals, or join in, because this is the way to find out just what is important hereabouts. I'd call the place "homey."
