Selma's is always our first stop when we arrive. Love the family atmosphere and the pizza rates very high with us. Very warm and friendly.

We got in late to our condo and decided to order a pizza and were so pleasantly surprised by the quality of Selma's. It was just one of our 4 experiences with them, including eating in the restaurant itself. Excellent pizza and sandwiches.

First..Great location. Outside is much better than a dark gloomy interior. Service usually slow and very incompetent. This is the training ground for every first time restaurant employee. You can usually find the staff huddled in the near the kitchen, eating, drinking and generally screwing...More
