“A typical Blacksburg restaurant--average dining”
Reviewed November 1, 2009

Up front, I will admit that I don't go to restaurants just to go out. I want good food if I'm going out.

We ordered a vegetarian pizza. The crust was decent, but the vegetables seemed to have come from a can (the mushrooms obviously did and the red peppers were pretty soft). Domino's doesn't use canned mushrooms!

In addition, the wait staff was rather inattentive and we were hurried out by the manager/owner. It was a busy night, so they may have gotten a 10 minute earlier turnover on our table but between the food and service they lost our future business.

I generally enjoy local restaurants, but I'd choose the Olive Garden in Christiansburg over Sal's.

Best pizza in the New River Valley! So far, everything I've tried on the menu is good. The owner and staff are very friendly.

Based on the recommendation of friends, I ate here with my husband, son, and daughter. They thought their entrees (Sausage and Peppers, Chicken Parmigiana, and Cheese Ravioli) were okay, but I was not impressed with my dish - Grilled Salmon Primavera. Overall, we did not find the food tasty enough to justify the cost or even a return visit to try the pizza, calzones, or different entrees.
