I guess they are trying to imitate New York style thin crust. They fall short. Not much toppings and weak sauce. Have had better many places. 17.00 for a medium pizza 2 toppings that if I was really hungry, I could eat by myself.

The surroundings aren't much to look at: cafeteria-style tables and chairs, some filled with people waiting for their take-out orders. But if you don't mind a little chaos, you will enjoy the pizza. Great thin-crust, fresh topping on our veggie pizza, a shared house salad, and a draft beer. Perfect!

As had been said, part of their success is the pizza crust. They have it down! The ingredients to choose from are varied and all that we tried were quite good. There are basically three areas to eat: outdoors, indoors and up in the pool room loft. Other food around us like salads and soup looked good.

I ordered the New Mexican pizza for carry out and it was much better than I imagined. Waiting though to get the pizza wasn't a good experience. I walked up to the counter and waited there for a good 5 minutes while there was at least 5 guys hanging out on the side of the counter who all noticed me... More

The pizza crust was delicious and crispy. The toppings and flavor not so much. Disappointed the the green chili chicken had no kick, the cheese had little flavor and no elasticity. The Caesar salad lacked dressing and cheese. The croutons were good. So not recommending this pizza joint at this time. Thanks for reading. The Bike Chaplain

I wish I had listened to reviewer Karen about the calzones... they are TINY, lacking cheese, and cut in half. If cut in half doesn't sound like a big deal, try ordering To Go and see if it's still hot when you get home. Ok, now I need to go find a real dinner after this snack.

I thought this well-run pizza restaurant was pretty good. I stopped by for lunch (first time) and really enjoyed the lunch combo, which is a generous slice of pizza with one topping (I opted for pepperoni), choice of four house salads (Caesar was my pick),, and a tall non-alcoholic beverage. The pizza sauce is really nicely seasoned and really makes... More

We've been here in the past and have enjoyed the salads and pizza. This time we all ordered calzones, yuck! They were dry as a bone, small and totally lacking in flavor. They apparently don't put ricotta cheese in their calzones but honestly I've never heard of a calzone without it. Also, we were not fans of the cold, tiny... More

I had lunch here Saturday with a friend, and we had a really nice time. I had pizza and a salad. I love the crust on the pizza here. It's crunchy and thin and perfect. Despite that, I have ever to say my favorite thing on the menu is the fall salad with walnuts and craisins. I would definitely return.
