We are locals so we eat here quite often. This is my all time favorite pizza. It is thin crust and we generally order it in advance for takeout. Very reasonable prices.

This is THE place to go for a quick, no frills pizza bite. Service is fast, the thin crust pizza is great, it can be noisy and you sometimes have to wait. Overall a great place.

Place has a phenomenal reputation, but the pies are, well, less than extraordinary ... in my opinion. Nice place to sit and the prices are OK. And any place with a kielbasa pizza can't be bad. Different? Yes. But, the pizza just isn't that special...More

Classic local townie bar and pizza restaurant, with very fine quality pizza and noisy, charming atmosphere. A throwback to pre-gentrification of the area, and a reliable and friendly neighborhood option for honest down-home food.

Pizza is the best. Get the meat on top for best taste. Wish they had a few more draft beer choices. Off the beaten track but worth the trouble. Not a dress up place.

Pizza is good but the staff who provide takeout don't care unless you are a regular. I was told 30 minutes for pickup, arrived at 35 minutes, was told it would "just be a few" and waited another 20 minutes while the bar staff quickly...More

Not sure! Their menu is very simple and we have only one veggie option, so I have not really focused so minutely.
