'Like it is'. We came out during Isaac and went to Vinnies first, it was 5 to 9 and he said he was shut down. we then went in to Mikes after taking a ride down the road and decided to try him. It was after 9:10 when we got there, they close at 9:30 First of all the service was very accomodating,and they had no problem making us a large pie and a family size calzone. Mike said "they were here for us". Now on to the food. the pizza was okay, not really great NY pizza, the crust was not the best alittle chewy, not enough air in the dough. The calzone was wet and drippy the cheese in side was runny, the ricotta should be drained first before being put inside.

We've been going to Mike's for years... previous location, and now the new location in Effort. Try our personal favorite: White pizza with tomato, basil & garlic! Consistantly delicious! Highly recommend!

My family has been a huge fan for many years. A great Italian restraunt. Everything is open. You can see the cooks making food. Great place.

We ordered 10 trays for a birthday party. It was highly recommended by a friend. We don't live in the area. We were very happy with the pizza. All of the guests were as well. My daughter LOVED it, and she doesn't "like" much. Prices are reasonable. The people are wonderful to deal with. I will definitely return when I am staying in that area again.

The menu is HUGE. You have such a variety of different Italian dishes. I want to try something different next time, it all looked soooooo good!
