I eat here about 3 times a week. For about 3 bucks you can get a satisfying slice. Daily you can find Sausage, peperoni, veggie, supreme and taco. They also offer a random special pizza each day. The deep dish with double sauce is amazing, really deep, loads of pepperoni and cheese and topped with a rich layer of marinara. For a place this size they have ample seating, clean bathrooms, an efficient and expereienced staff. I think they've had the same employees for the last 10 years which is good because they know what they're doing, they get to know you as a customer and provide great service. This place isn't fancy, it's not Centro, but I like it better. If you're looking for a lunch high on flavor at a reasonable price try here. I always get pizza but they also offer sammiches, salad, and pasta if you want something italian, try Something Italian.

This is one of the best lunches available in the skywalk. Fast service, good food, great value for the money. They take a lot of pride in what they do and are always friendly. I usually go with the meatball sandwich or a few slices of pizza. It always hits the spot and is usually pretty quick. A long line can build up during peak lunch hours, but it tends to move fast.

We took the skywalk from the Hyvee Center. Very fun and we took home their leftover pizza! Canned drinks. Great salad bar!

This is one of my favorite lunch spots downtown. It is only open for weekday lunch but is worth getting there. They have a wide menu but I almost always get the pizza. It's crispy thin crust by-the-slice (huge slices). I'm not a vegetarian but I think their veggie pizza is my favorite- delicious mushrooms, spinach, etc. I pair a slice with their salad bar- or get a large salad alone. The salad bar is really small, but packs a punch. It has huge olives, wonderful house-made croutons, and a rotation of pasta or bean salad. Don't forget to grab a slice of fresh bread from the basket on top of the salad bar to accompany your meal.
