“Was not impressed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

I bought a take out pizza for my wife and me. We very much like pizza but will not go back here.

It was not awful but it was a little greasy and doughy.

“Just OK - Nothing to write home about!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

My wife and I stopped here last Wednesday afternoon before heading to a meeting. We have watched the place being remodeled and turned into this restaurant and have been waiting to give it a try. We live in Branson and eat at most all the restaurants in the area - check out our other reviews!

Anyway, we walked in with no expectations as we had not heard anything about the place, yet. You place your order as you walk in the door and the dining area is not even visible, so you can not tell whether there are a lot of patrons, what the place really looks like, or get a real feel for the place.

Our order was taken quickly enough, and we seated ourselves in the dining area. There were approximately 4 other patrons in the dining area. We received our orders in a reasonable amount of time. Unfortunately, the food did not really stand out in any way. It wasn't poor in quality, and, at the same time, it did not impress us. It reminds us of eating somewhere out of town, and 3 months later, not remembering the place, the name of the place or what we had to eat.

The decor is another thing that was just average. It doesn't appear to have been done professionally - just some guy throwing some pictures on a wall, having a large picture blowup of a fire truck thrown on a wall and some fire gear. Very average.

Unfortunately, we will probably not be back. With all of the outstanding places to eat in Branson, there just isn't room for those that don't impress.

“Good lunch special.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

I have been here many times. Good food. Good lunch special always comes out fast. I feel comfortable taking clients out to eat here. They keep the place clean.

“The best tasting pizza I've ever had!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

If you're looking for a great pizza you will not be disappointed! I didn't know pizza could have so much flavor, the sauce was amazing, the service was better and everyone left happier than we came. Go here!

“Fantastic pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

Definitely recommend them for the pizza. Is even really good the next day, which for me is the true test of a great pizza. My husband had the fagioli (soup) and said it's not bad but could have used a little more seasoning. The bread sticks were wonderful. They're a little like Olive Garden's but these were even better.
