“Awful, Overpriced Experience, avoid at all possible”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2010

this would not allow me to give zero stars, so 1 it is!

ABSOLUTELY AWFUL EXPERIENCE! Avoid at all costs (well, unless you like throwing money away).

Food was average, and very overpriced. We ordered a pizza and a sandwich with a side of clam chowder and added some kettle chips (at a cost of $1.50).

We saw them open a snack size bag of chips (yeah, that was worth a $1.50) and put them on the plate before serving.

No refills on soft drinks, charged at $1.95 per can of Coke.

Service was extremely slow.

So, to recap:

Godfather sandwich: Decent, but probably $2 overpriced
Clam Chowder: very watery, better stuff out of can from grocery store
Pizza: again, decent, but you can get the better level of gourment pizza from California Pizza Kitchen out of the frozen section at the grocery store.
Soft Drinks: No refills, charged at $1.95 per can.

We had high hopes for Summa Joe's and were extremely disappointed. We will tell anyone and everyone to avoid.
