This place is a throwback, its like you are walking straight into the 70's, the burger and fries were surprisingly good. Our server was kind, it seems like they have a loyal following. We will return when in Albany again.

Frequently stop in while in the area. Enjoyed a cup of chicken florentine and a tuna club sandwich. Husband ordered a reuben. Food was very good. Server was extremely pleasant and accommodating even though the restaurant was very busy. Will go again!

So sad they don't deliver. This is really a bar/restaurant not a 'pizza place' I believe their secret has something to do with generous use of garlic on their pizzas. So if you like garlic you will not be disappointed. Wings and other foods good...More
