Order chicken nachos, and southwestern egg rolls for delivery and we got potato skins and jalapeno poppers! We did not realize until the delivery man had left and we did not make fuss about it when we called to let them know what had happened...More

We were on our first visit to Quincy, and was told by family to check out Gem City Pizzeria & Mexican Restaurant. We had the best waitress, who took the time to help us with any menu questions. I wish I could remember her name....More
