“solid pizza joint”

Solid pizza joint, I go here for a slice and a beer. The pizza is good but will not blow your socks off.

“Quick place to grab a bite!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2013

It seems like this place is always full. I had a late lunch at 2pm and the place was still pack. I ordered the steak sub and had to wait to be seated. The place is small but the waitress was very quick and had to ask some people to leave. Some customers are just not considerate of other people. The food was yummy and will not hesitate to go back and have seconds.

“Pizza Heaven!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2013

With two teenagers in tow, it's not always easy finding a quick place to get lunch or a snack. Engine House is our 'go to' in Salem for pizza.

Yes, it gets crowded, yes, you have to wait for a table, yes the pizza is amazing and you should patiently wait! We went twice during our long weekend visit. Both times we had a short wait for a table, but no longer than 15 minutes. Order your pizza, grab a soda, and hang.

The pizza was delicious, hot, fresh ingredients, fresh dough. The pepperoni was just crispy on the edge like I love, the crust was thin enough not to outshine the homemade sauce and fresh mozz. The sizes are generous and a medium with an order or fries was just perfect for our family of four.

Go grab a pizza at Engine House!

“Good food but service was not up to par”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

We stopped here for a late dinner. The prices were a bit high for what you got. The service was not amazing. None of the employees were wearing gloves while handling our food and some orders came out immediately while others took up to 15 minutes, meaning some people were finished eating by the time others just started. The employees all seemed eager for us to leave so they could close up and go home when there was still an hour left until close and two other groups still eating. No complaints about the food though - it was all delicious. Hoping that our experience was the exception, not the norm!
