I love The East Side. Been going there for over 35 years and their pizza is still amazing today as it was when I was growing up. Their service can definitely be a little slow if you're sitting down in the dining room, but that...More

This is a longtime locally owned Pizza cafe. It is one of the few coal driven pizza oven restaurants in the country. Open for pizza Thursday thru Sunday only. These pizzas are in the oven for only a few minutes because of the heat, but...More

Quick stop for pizza to go. Very fair price for drink and pizza. Pies were very good. Don't be fooled by appearance. A lot of locals so it's a comfortable atmosphere.

The pizza here is amazing. I would rather have it from there than anywhere else. It's not the nicest place in town, but it's Delish.

Eastside is a landmark that has been around forever. The pizza is incredibly delicious. The tasty sauce and New York style brick oven crust has kept me and mine coming back for 30 plus years. Awesome place.
