“A bar ...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2011

Not a bad "local" place for beer, wings, and pizza. Nothing too special. Good prices. It's a hangout. Tend to disagree that their crust is like cardboard. Make no mistake, it's a bar.

“You Have GOT to be Kidding”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2010

For those of you that actually think the pizza is good, then you must not have had anything but frozen disks in your past. All I can say is the crust (at least for the thin) is a bulk purchased frozen piece of cardboard that they TRY to put fresh ingredients on. Not a bad idea for a place that is basically a bar and it's not like someone says' hey honey, let's go to Emils' for a special night out'. You are there after playing ball, or watching a game on tv. However, when you have the option of getting a pie where someone cares enough to actually rolled out the dough, or even bought frozen dough and make the crusts from that, there are many ,many other options in the area that are waaaaaaaay better. Bill's anyone?

“Nothing to say but this place is so...”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2010

Nothing to say but this place is so gross!
It's dirty, depressing and way to expensive for what it is.

“THE best pizza in Lake County!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2009

I have lived in this county for 40 years and I can't tell you how many thousands of pizzas I have eaten and I can' t think of any places I missed. The Bowes family knows how to make them the best.
