Our waitress came to the table to ask how the pizza was. I said it was good but cold. She became very rude and walked away. Then she ignored us...not even refilling our drinks.

We ordered a pizza to go on a weeknight. It was ready in 30 minutes and pick-up was easy. We ordered a hamburger and mushroom pizza and it was very delicious. We'd love to dine in with our family sometime!
