Reviewed October 6, 2013 via mobile

we stopped in here because we were dying of hunger and did nit want to spend 20 dollars for an entree somewhere, it was a mistake. The food was terrible. First of all our soads were flat. We ordered a small white pie. im pretty sure a white pie is supposed to have white sauce on it. This was literally bread, regular cheese, and so much ricotta is was almost nauseating. ive literally had microwave pizza that had more flavor than this, to say it tasted like cardboard is an understatement. it took quite a while to get the food as well. Our waitress was nowher eto be found and threw straws and napkins on the table, literally. do yourself a favor, if you want pizza spring the extra money for brick oven. this place was just all around poor.

Every time we go to Beech, we stop at least once for pizza at Bullwinkle's. That being said, the last time, the quality wasn't exactly the same as times before. Half of the pizza was burnt on the bottom and the other half was perfect! Go figure! Usually the pizza is probably the closest thing to NY style pizza that you will find in this area. It's 110% better than the Brick Oven Pizza place up the road. Waiters are friendly but service is very slow. Thank goodness they have TVs on the walls to entertain the kids as we are waiting for the pizza to get made and baked! Yikes! My recommendation would be to call ahead with your order and either eat it inside or take out to your place. Prices are pretty fair.

If the service were better this could easily be an excellent pizzeria. We last visited on an evening hours before sunset without the restaurant being crowded, and still we waited about 1 hour for our pie. The couple we were with waited even longer! This is not an isolated experience. Most of our friends have had similar experiences. I don't know if there is seldom crowded because of the service, or the service is bad due to the place being seldom crowded. Bullwinkels has the reputation of great pizza, with very poor service.
The pizza is delicious. Very nice freshly made crust, tasty ingredients that aren't too salty. I recommend the Warsteiner beer on draft to accompany your meal-if you aren't in a hurry.

Good selection and reasonable price. We called in and the pizza was ready in 15 minutes, hot and good.

the atmosphere was fine but when i order a pizza i expect the toppings to be fresh not out of a can! beer selection was fine and staff was nice but was not to happy with the food put in front of me. its like everything came frozen or out of a can. do they only shop at sams and buy all pre made stuff?
