My college mates wife went to school at ETSU. My friends car was broken down and I agreed to drive him to pick it up at a shop in Johnson city. This restaurant is amazing. They have fresh seasonal ingredients, and if you ask for the full trust. You never know what they will serve you.

The owner of this restaurant is extremely rude and I heard him discussing women as nothing more than sex objects. The foods just average and the service was just average also. It's not family friendly since everyone was cursing every five minutes.

The atmosphere is definitely not typical, very funky and off-beat, but fun. Truly excellent pizza, lots of interesting toppings. If you are open minded, order a "trust" meaning, you trust them to create it! You can also feel free to play DJ and play any of the LPs they have there.

This is a very good place for vegans and gluten free. They offer a wide variety of vegetables. A little pricey for every week but worth a splurge!

Easily the best pizza. Ever. And that includes pizza in Naples. I do limited trust since I don't eat most meat... apples, curry sauce, artichokes and chicken sausage on a pizza... to die for.

This place has quality brick oven pizza. The staff is cool, calm & collected! I always get their "trust" pizza with no meat. They create the pizza and you trust their ingredients. I've never been disappointed!
