My title says it...this is my favorite pizza ever! The crust is amazing, and it's loaded with toppings & cheese unlike other places. Their sandwiches and salads are really good as well. This place is an absolute must if you are visiting the area!

Best pizza and sandwiches in town, didn't care for the long wait but the food made up for the wait. I will always try to eat there and I will go early since I know the wait is long.
