Had a Buffalo chicken sandwich with fries - huge piece of chicken slathered with cheese that was very tasty. Never had fries with pepper before but they were a treat as well. I'd go again :)

We visited here for lunch while on vacation. When you first walk in, it has an eclectic look, but the owner is very friendly, and the food was terrific! (Keep in mind it is a burger/pizza place!). The #6 bacon/blue cheese/ mushroom burger was of the best burgers I've eaten. My wife had the cheeseburger, and my daughter had a... More

Tough barely topped pizza, frozen crust with raw tomato slices on top and very little cheese for the Margarita one. Burgers okay but too expensive and uninspired overall. Won't be back, how does the place survive.

Pizza has very thin and crispy crust. Spouse had pepperoni and I had vegetarian. Both were excellent. Mine had fresh basil in addition to the veggies. I had a good salad as well. We've gone at lunch and dinner time and always been happy with our meals. A lot of its business is takeout.

We have gone back several times. Salads are great, hamburgers are delicious and pizzas are amazing. The price is reasonable and the owner has worked really hard to give the place a new image. He uses fresh ingredients and everything is cooked from scratch so it doesn't come out super fast but it's worth waiting 10 min.

Stopped in for a quick lunch and wasn't sure what we had stepped into. We were the only customers there. It looked like they were in the middle of redecorating, the walls were oddly painted and it appeared the painting was still in progress. We had burgers and they were without a doubt, about the best burger I've ever had.... More

the bipolar owner is nuts...food is spotty and reviews follow same...either 5 or 1. Our experience is cardboard pizza and decent burgers with a nut case for server.

In a nutshell this place was definitely a little odd, which is ok because that's what they're going for, I get it. But be aware that the pizza is just ok, and VERY thin cracker-type crust (not my jam, I'm a NY style kind of girl; Mario's West End nailed that one!). Toppings were fresh, price reasonable. Basically may or... More
