Stopped and grabbed a pizza because of the good reviews. My son loved it. It's a thinner crust, almost New York style. We would eat here again. FYI... It's on the side of Valero.

I am extremely picky about pizza (I don't even like HomeSlice anymore, which means I will probably get excommunicated from Texas), but this is very, very good. Giovanni (yes, it's a real guy) is incredibly friendly and gracious, and he makes restaurant-quality food in a...More

Great wood fired pizza at this take out stand. He makes some excellent soups and pastas too, with good quality ingredients. The family touch, with good prices. Try it by the slice.
