The owner's work so hard to make this place work, and they do a great job. The beer selection is adequate (have to have beer with pizza). I usually go as a couple and we split a salad and a medium pizza. I especially like...More

I was looking for something a bit different than Southern fare, and stumbled on a review of this restaurant -- what luck! I enjoyed a VERY filling meal of fried calamari, a half spinach salad, and a 10-inch smoked chicken/red onion pizza. Don't be fooled...More

Great pizza! Wings were ok. Customer service was great and they had plenty of room to sit during lunch hour. If your thinking of going call in your order and you won't have to wait when you arrive.

Got the lunch special of a cheesesteak sandwich and French fries. Both excellent. The fries were fresh cut - probably in peanut oil, tasty and very generous serving. Also got a half house salad and balsamic vinaigrette. That fed two of us.

Great experience and food. Our table ordered several kinds of pizza. Definitely a place to return, so we signed up for the club.

This is an order at the counter style place where they bring it to your table when it's ready. We tried the Veggie Lovers, which had a pretty unique selection of vegetables on it. Crust was very thin and tasty, but the overall pizza was...More
