Food- nothing to brag about. No pizazz. Large portions but not much flavor, in pizza or salad. No available avocado for their nachos either. Kids get food served on a frisbee, so a take home item! Nice emphasis on sports (interior), especially the Cubs! Go for the relaxing surroundings with friends/family, not necessarily to eat.

When travelling we often like to find a local mom and pop type pizzeria if we can. Being in a college town we thought this might be a good choice and unfortunately it wasn't. Apparently this is a franchise or chain because there are also locations in Clive, Ames, and also in Kansas. This is a sports bar and grille/pizza.... More

Stopped in for lunch before heading out of town. Had a great lunch special...two slices of pizza and soda for around $6? Slices very good size. Had full pizzas previous visits and always good.

Stopped by for lunch on a whim, and was not disappointed. Their version of a supreme pizza is excellent. The sauce is rich and seasoned well. We also got some of their breadsticks which were delicious!! Try them with their ranch - an AMAZING combination! Looking forward to them the next time we are in town :-)

We went to The Other Place on University Ave and we ordered two sodas, an order of garlic cheese bread and an xl pizza. Neither the garlic bread or the pizza were cooked completely. The waitress said they had to remake our order because someone took our pizza by mistake and it was in the oven cooking. Hey i understand... More

Went here with some friends. First thing I noticed was that the service was excellent and very friendly. The tenderloin was amazing. The only thing I found to be somewhat of a negative was that you don't get a whole lot of fries with the meal. I still give this restaurant 5 stars and will most definitely be returning again!

Whether you are with your family or coworkes or alone this place works well for all. The OP's have been in the metro area for decades and continues to keep its guest happy with great pizza and many other good items. This location had just added an outdoor seating area too. Lots of TVs to view the latest games on... More

I almost always order pizza, there is no skimping on the toppings.The crust is one of a kind and made fresh onsite.It takes at least 20 minutes for the freshest pizza ever, but they have a full bar so the wait is never boring.The full menu gives you lots of options.
