I have eaten at this restaurant many times and also called ahead for carryout. The service and food has always been great and is one of the better franchises in this chain.

Had lunch there today and they need to stick to the core beginning, pizza. It seems to be in the background. The place is looking a little beaten up and, in my estimation, not as clean as it could have been. If I can see things that need to be cleaned, someone else should be able to see them, as... More

We have eaten her many times. I am addicted to the smashed pea and barley soup! What we noticed this visit was the increase in prices, added luncheon menu items and more specialty drinks. Food was as good as always. Service was good. We got there at the beginning of lunch rush, so it wasn't as noisy as it has... More

I always enjoy the menu and drink options. Service has always been friendly and prompt. I wish they would bring back their steak house salad. It had no steak but was really good!

We have now eaten here several times and each time been disappointed. While not bad the food is no better than any other pizza place you might choose in Fresno. It's a shame because they seem to be using very good quality ingredients and then turn them into average meals.

Inside is pretty noisy during peak hours so I like to sit outside unless it's too cold or hot. They always have nice salads. Never have been disappointed in the food.

Been a while between visits but have never tried the pizza -- wondering if that is my mistake. Staff is pleasant. But the non-pizza items are overpriced, with little taste and certainly unimaginative. My friend had a vegetable salad; I had a California club with chicken. The chicken, when you could find it, seemed straight out of a grocery cellophane... More
