Always a good place to stop in and eat. Sit at the bar or a cozy table, also outside if the weathers nice. . Pizzas are good. Italian beefs and the Bomb are also good. Good selection of beer.

We go to Val's to change things up with good pizza, do the thin crust, and great salad. Try to get Eli to wait on your table, a nice young man.
