“Don't let location fool you...”
Reviewed July 18, 2014 via mobile

We saw a billboard and decided to try it. We were alittle hesitant when we saw it was in a gas station. The restaurant was off to the side and had great atmosphere. Pizza was delicious! Mozzarella sticks were nothing exciting. When we finished eating we walked into the convenience store. It was very clean, had a great variety of merchandise and the restrooms were very clean. There is a coupon in the St Augustine tour book for 10% off.

“Good Pizza, Prompt Service”
Reviewed July 3, 2014 via mobile

Had lunch at the bar, a small pizza and tea. Garlic is prevalent on the pizza, but it was good nonetheless. Equal patronage between locals and tourists. As other reviewers reported, it is on a corner location, inside a convenience store. Would definitely return.

“Good pizza, strange location”
Reviewed July 3, 2014

Had seen a billboard advertisement that looked good so we went... Imagine our shock at a restaurant in a gas station. Atmosphere was fine as we had children. The pizza and service was very good ...price a little high but then again, that's to be expected on vacation.

“Pictures were worth a 1,000 words, not good ones!”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

We have lived in the area for 8 years but had never stopped in to eat so thought we should try it. The picture on the menu for the Greek Salad looked great and the pizza aroma in the restaurant was enticing.

It was by far the most disappointing Greek Salad we have ever had, how do you screw that up? I mean it was a bowl of Romaine lettuce, a few red onions, unfortunately the black olives were cut into small pieces instead of leaving the whole and robust, and there was barely a dusting of Feta cheese, it was pitiful. At $9 this should have been covered with Feta and at least one Greek pepper! We did ask for some additional Feta cheese but the restaurant was busy and we finally got it at the end of the meal.

The pizza was good with the outside of the crust tasty. The middle of the crust was so laden with sauce that the crust was soggy as a wet sponge.

The beer was nice and cold so that was good. The wait staffed were slammed but our server was courteous and pleasant.

Our return is highly doubtful.

“Great Pizza”
Reviewed June 11, 2014

This place is connected to a gas station, but the food was excellent! We had pizza and a greek salad and it all was awesome. You get pretty much for the price. We thought the kids pizza would be a little individual one but it was a really good size. We found it by chance with our GPS so you may have to ask someone where it is. Excellent service also.
