I wanted to give John's Pizza a good review, because I'm glad the new owners saved it. But really, it needs more work. Let's see, first we had two different servers come to take our drink order (we only gave it once), and then after...More

everyone in town knows John's Pizza has gone down hill. Its dark inside which is a good thing because it doesn't feel clean. Since I live here, I hate to say it, but John's probably won't be around too much longer.
