Came here for dinner while staying nearby. Another CPK. Food is average. Service is fair as the place gets busy being attached to a shopping mall.

It was just blah, just what I'd thought it would be. OK pizza, OK pasta, flat soda and stale bread with no butter in the place. Tortilla soup was pretty good, the rest was just OK. Probably would not go back.

Service was OK. The pizza was dry and not tasty. We didn’t have to wait on a Sat night. We had to ask for water refills.
