Ordered a pizza, 3 burgers, and the pizza nachos. Service was fine. Pizza wasn't very good at all. The crust was greasy and it had whole olives on it, which was different. BBQ, bacon, cheddar burgers were good, probably at least a 1/2 Ln, but...More

It is thin(ner) than their regular though. The pizza was ok...the service was poor. The cook brought the pizza out. Server was outside smoking. Didn't even know we had already received our pizza. The beer was cold and I would've liked another if she would've...More
