We sort of got 'stuck' going here around 9pm one night because everything in Highlands closes so early this was about the only place left open. It's not much to look at from the outside, but the pizza was fabulous and they were so nice to us even though we came in close to closing time. Maybe not the cleanest joint in the world but it had been open all day and very busy. Good pizza though! I'd go again.

We spent a 3 day weekend camping in Highlands, the mountains are beautiful! However as a place that is largely supported by tourism we felt snubbed by the locals on more than one occasion. True we smelled of camp fire and could have probably benefited from a razor and hairdryer but that is what camping is about.....alright about the restaurant, right? It was a delight to find this little gem with it's out of date 80's plastic seating and bad lighting. We were finally accepted without being given a look. With that said the place is very casual, great for friends hanging out, great for families, not so much for a romantic evening though. The menu was amazing specialty pizzas are available as well as create your own of course, we had 3 in our party so we each chose a different 6" to sample and all three were excellent. They also serve beer which was a plus for us and the GA game was on, I would def. go here again.

This pizza was fantastic and hit the spot tonight after a long day of hiking. Good cold beer selection. We got Stella, but they have others, including PBR. The cook made our crust extra thin upon request and the sauce was great, not sweet, and the pizza came loaded with cheese. Perfect!

The atmosphere here is not what you would expect for Highlands. However, this place has always delivered consistent pizza. This time we tried a gyro sandwich and it was great. We also tried the white pizza "to go" and it was excellent. They also serve beer. It's a great value if you have kids with you!

By fAr we always have to go to this Place. It's so authentic. Don't think we've had anything on the menu that we wouldn't order again. The pizza is our fav but the pasta dishes are always so uniquely prepared and fresh. Its a great little place to grab a great little carb load before you hike those hills or walk the falls. Definitely on our list to eat when we visit Highlands!
