Let me preface this. We are from Chicago so we fall into pizza snobbery sometimes. They made a great pizza! Just like back home. We are always wary of "Chicago style" outside of Chicago area. They hit a home run with us. We were served authentic crisp thin crust. Wisconsin cheese and sausage that had a hint of spicy from back home. Turns out owners originally come from Chicago. They know how to make great pizza. Will go back before we leave town. Will try the deep dish or pan next.

Good food and great atmosphere. Just go...Everyone will find something they will enjoy. The menu is huge. It's going to take me years to try everything.

Always crowded and for good reason. Excellent thin crust pizza and BIG salads. Funky atmosphere. Reasonable and good house wines

My boyfriend and I were on a trip to explore Arizona and the Grand Canyon when we came across this AMAZING restaurant. The food was spectacular and the service matched. The portions were large, and the menu selection was extensive and filled with variety.

You will want to get there early for dinner though. It would appear this is a favorite spot for the locals. There was a 45 minute wait time when we first arrived. We put our name in and then left to try to run to a local candy store before returning to the restaurant. Upon our return, our name had already been called. Instead of throwing us back onto the bottom of the list, they tried to get us sat as soon as possible.

While we were waiting, a server served pizza samples to everyone in the waiting area. The server even brought pizza dough out for the kids to play with to keep them entertained!! We were too full by the time dessert was offered, but they had a cookie pizza that sounded delicious. We would definitely return :-)

Looking for a place to grab lunch on the way north from the Desert Botanical Garden, we drove by this restaurant and decided to stop in. It was a good decision. The menu is large, as are the portions. I ordered a salad (the "normal" size, not the available "large" size) and I still couldn't get through more than half of it. It was good, just too much. We also ordered a burger, which came with a lot of french fries, and it was good as well. The decor of this restaurant borders on somewhere between "really funky" to "really cluttered". And service was very good - menus arrived quickly, as did the food, and the manager was very present, checking on tables frequently but unobtrusively. This seems to be a place where people in the area are happy to come back to again and again, based on conversations I overheard between the hostess and arriving patrons . I would eat here again, as well, as long as I had a huge appetite!
