We eat here whenever we go to or thru Needles, CA. The food is always yummy, they have the best tasting bread for their sandwiches and the garlic bread. We love their Italian sandwich, pizza, lasagna, salads, and anti pasta salad.

Had an enjoyable time here for dinner. Standard selection of pizza and interesting atmosphere. Lots of locals stopping in for pickup. No complaints and enjoyed the food.

We live local and my son was getting married. We had never eaten here, but this was what my son wanted for his rehearsal dinner. We ordered 20 pizzas. They were delivered on time and we're wonderful. I could not stop eating the Philly cheesesteak pizza.... so good! They were professional and prompt, make all their own dough, we will... More

A short distance from the clean and comfortable BUDGET INN and easy to get into for a small bite to eat. The Italian dishes weren't available at 8:30pm, just good pizza and even wine.

This seems to be a small, local restaurant and everything is homemade. The menu has a nice variety (sandwiches, pizza etc.), so there is something for everyone, and the food is excellent. I don't know if I will ever be back this way again, but I really hope so, and I would definitely stop in here again!!

If your in a hurry don't come here!!!! If you have time and can be patient, you will have some of the best pizza of your life! The wings are amazing too! You will wait up to two hours for delivery some days so plan ahead, but it's well worth the wait!!! The meat lovers OMFG sooooooo BOMB!

Fresh salads and three topping pizza, sausage, mushrooms and onions! Just a little extra sauce...no problem. Friendly with good customer service. Large dirt lot to park a semi. On the negative side -- their delicious homemade Italian dressing was a little thin. Womens restroom soap dispenser needed batteries. I informed them of the situation and they were taking steps to...
