“Best beer and pizza in the area!”
Review of Berkshire Cafe

Reviewed October 6, 2011

Although there are other pizza places closer...the Berkshire is just the best in our opinion! Also, the salads are great. (after all....ya gotta have something healthy!) ..with a fantastic dressing I THINK they make there. We usually get one large and share it and it seems to be enough. You can get beer ...and soda...by the pitcher. Be warrned that there is only a half-wall separating the bar from the booths....so it can be noisy. We wanted to take my aunt, who is a nun there....but after going in to check out the crowd.....decided it was not the right place for her! So we ordered our pie to-go (Don't feel this is a rough place...it is not. But she was near 90 and still wore the habit...and we thought it was inappropriate. She did have a beer with the pizza when we got it home, however..and she is an avid sports fan...so perhaps we over-reacted! )

Going to the Berk on for pizza was a family treat back in the day. The parlor made the thickest, spiciest, "bestest" pizza in the area. The sauce was unique.... it was real! Whatever the owners did to change the recipes as ruined the food. Tonight, the sauce tasted like anchiovy sauce, the mozzarella was dry and gritty, and the dough was thin and chewy. NOTHING like what it used to be. I hope the owners take note of the ratings on this website as well as others and return to making real, hometown pizza with top-notch ingredients and bring this place back to the "best pizza in town"!

The Berkshire was my favorite of all time. My family and I would go there every two weeks. The Pizza was the best and the salad dressing was to die for. The new owners have not held up the quality... Very upset that a perfect pizza place has gone down hill..
