If you are in for a great tasting pizza from a wood fire oven, burger, or fish tacos without much entourage this is a place for you! Salads and quesadillas, French fryes and nachos. They have them all. Along with a nice choice of wines and beers.

We enjoyed lunch at Firewood. We had burgers and pizza and everything was good. You order your meal at the counter and your food is brought to you. They actually have a large menu including pizza and Mexican food. The server who brought our food was having an off day (with busing tables) but otherwise no issues. It was good... More

We always compare pizza to our favorite place in Colorado...this one actually came close because of the very soft, fresh crust! The restaurant takes no reservations and you order at the counter, so we were a little stressed with kids, because it was crowded. But we watched for a table while part of our party stood in line to order... More

Modest and yummy salsa bar, beer, wine. Wood fired pizzas are creative and delicious. Taco meals with rice, whole beans, choice of 2 chicken, pork or fish "street... More

This is a great little place for lunch! The pizza is delicious. Prices are very reasonable! We also ordered a chicken quesadilla and a steak quesadilla and both were excellent! The place is small so tables may be hard to come by. We stopped in during a busy rush and were able to find a table upstairs, but there wasn't... More

The best fish tacos anywhere! The wood fired pizzas are also excellent. Relaxed atmosphere. You can sit and relax and enjoy good food and conversations.

As a local this one of our go to restaurants, the menu has something for everyone. I have worked my through the menu since it opened and find the wood fired pizza and burgers to be some of the best in the area.

They had a nice variety of choices, pizza, Mexican, burgers. We opted for Mexican. I had the tamale plate and my wife had a pulled pork salad. Both were good, I enjoyed my tamale, the beans and rice were average (not sure what great sides of beans and rice taste like!). The service was just OK, the atmosphere was a... More
