Always good! Order extra done if you like it crispy. Ask your waitresses if you're not sure. They're all been there for years, and will help you get the best experience possible. Just ask😉

I love this place, the pizza is so good. Super casual atmosphere and relaxed. Never was a fan of thin crust pizza until eating here. Yum!

A wonderful thin crust pizza with a unique sauce. Only one size available and several toppings to chose from. A full bar. Cash Only. Located in an old home. Prompt and efficient service no matter the size of your group.
