“They should be ashamed”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

We called last night for a pizza and salad for delivery. The guy on the phone told me it would be an hour. I thought that was a bit long to wait for a pizza, but said ok. Well, it wasn't an hour, it was an hour and 17 minutes. The salad we ordered with it did not contain one piece of lettuce that was not rotten or wilted. The broccoli in the salad was so old it had flowered. The carrots were slimy. The pizza was stone cold and when we tried to heat it up, something was way wrong with the meat on it, probably past its pull date, too. I called and spoke with the manager who said he could get us another order. IN 45 MINUTES! Does anyone want to come home from work and wait more than two hours to eat dinner? $28 bucks for rotten food and attitude. Stay away from this pit. The only thing they are good for is thumb-suckers getting drunk and watching mindless sports on blaring TVs. The food is crap.

“Poor quality pizza dough, dingy room”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

I am quite accustomed to restaurants in older buildings and while I like the exposed beams and brick fireplace, this place just felt like it needed a good cleaning. Where my husband and I were seated involved an old wooden church pew with a dirty, drab, squished cushion. We shared a medium cheese pizza that had a crust that seemed like it was out of tube, like the ones you can buy in the dairy aisle with rolls and cookies in tubes. The red sauce was flavorless and the cheese was scorched. I have had pizza in four different countries and ten different states, this was the worst.

“great for cheese steaks!”
Reviewed June 8, 2012

a cute little spot but sometimes full of kids...but for a quick cheese steak sandwich a good pick. Just ask for no onions if you don't want to be bombarded. Great fries!

“Best pizza you will ever eat”
Reviewed May 22, 2012

The pizza here is to die for, and very reasonably priced. The bar upstairs is quiet and relaxed, a great place to catch up with friends!
