What I like best about this is the slices of pizza. It has gone downhill over the last few years, but it is still the best pizza in Columbia! The atmosphere is not meant to be elegant, as the original is a student of MU staple. The service is not good, as you get your order and find a place to sit. You get your own drinks, too. A couple of slices should take care of your hunger! Canadian bacon is my favorite! The slices are taken from a extra-large pizza, and they are the best economical bargain if you can get them (the hours do matter). An extra-large pizza costs more than a number of slices do, and a whole pizza pie does not taste as good. Get a variety of slices, if you want different tastes!

Despite being a few bucks more than it should be, the pizza is delicious. It's not "flat" pizza, nor is it the thick fast-food style of Pizza Hut. It is made fresh, and an enjoyable experience. The downtown location is infested with students mostly, but for off-times (or at the other location), it is a solid and tasty meal...

Pizza was good--nothing extra special, but tasty. Large, thick slices--you can buy a whole pizza or by the slice. I didn't get warm vibes there--the normal clients are the students and not someone's father, I guess. They weren't unfriendly, but you are on your own deciding what to get.

This is by far the best place to eat in Columbia, Missouri. The have excellent pizza that you can also get made with whole wheat crust and I personally love their pepperjack cheese. SO GOOD! The atmoshere is fabulous too! Right in downtown Columbia, you can sit outside and people watch. You can also order Shakespeare's to go!
