Pizza is excellent thin crust. I have it every time I am in town. My dad's favorite from his college days

This has been here for decades because it serves good, tasty (though somewhat greasy) pizza at a modest price. On a recent visit I had pepperoni and mushroom. Really liked it. Salads and sandwiches also are available. This place will never win awards for gourmet food. But it is solid, good tasting food. Very popular in this neighborhood.

Fantastic pizza sandwiches! Very similar to a calzone without the ricotta cheese. Cheap lunch specials...a must stop if you are in the area. Depending on what you order, service can be a bit slow...sometimes we call our order in ahead of time and eat there. Not a huge place, so can fill up fast. Worth checking out!

Pretty tasty pizza. Decent prices and pretty friendly staff. The restaurant is small but it isn't crowded. Adding ingredients to your pizza can be quite expensive, however.

Tell your sweetie its time for some St Paul Thin crust. This is a cheap date that is also family friendly. I love this for a couple on a small budget because it is fair priced, fulfilling for the tun-tum and t-shirts are the norm.

This is a local family chain I believe. Good pizza selection but limited beer choices. Friendly staff. Kid friendly. Inexpensive.

This is pizza like it should be. Thin crust, sauce, cheese and toppings of your choice. Fast and efficient.

Pizza is very good, basic, but tasty. The other menu items that I've tried are fairly plain. Salads could use some updating. But all in all it is our favorite neighborhood pizza joint.
