Always great food especially the pizza at Upper Crust Pizza. Never had a bad meal here. Their anti-pasta is also a great thing to eat with a pizza.

The food was very good but the place is very NOISY if it is busy. I mean to the point where you have a hard time holding a conversation across the table. If your just going to eat then you should be fine.

Good pizza and salad. Fast service and everyone was very friendly. I don't personally love a thicker crust pizza, but they did a good job with it - not greasy at all and evenly cooked.

Reasonable prices, portions, and a good tasting pizza. Seemed to be very busy when we got there so it looks as if the locals go here.

First time here. Not generally a fan of the "order at the counter" style of eatery, and other than food delivered to your table it's "serve yourself". However, the small garden salad was so good I wished I'd ordered an entree salad. Ranch dressing was housemade. Lasagna and pizza were fresh and delicious. Even the garlic bread was piping hot....

We had a large group and the setting was just right to accommodate us. The staff was helpful, friendly and the food was delicious. They were very helpful to the elderly one in our group as well.

Let's face it pizza is pizza right ? Wrong this place knows how to make great pizza besides being delicious what made the "Special" pizza so fantastic was the fresh taste of the products the tomatoes and the sausage were yummy . Just enough cheese not overpowering and not greasy oily just a bite of amazing freshness

This was the exact location where the original Stuff Pizza began in 1982. Upper Crust makes a slightly different pie, but the freshness and quality is all there. The crust is chewy, crispy and can hold all your toppings without spilling. The downside is it's not cheap. It tastes great cold the next day though!

Thank Zachary A
