There are number of excellent salad options, the larger sizes suitable for sharing between two or... More

First off its like a cattle herd they push you around from the time you enter until you leave. The food is getting more and more expensive there like they want to be an upscale restaurant but the food quality isn't that great. The pizza is very overpriced and not that great, because this is Socal they get away with... More

My son had the BBQ chicken pizza ($14.29) and loved it - great crust, plenty of topping but not too much. He devoured it after a day of soccer and beach. We weren't very hungry so just shared an appetizer of... More

First time we visited this chain on this trip - remembered it was good from LA two years ago. Never has pizza tastes so healthy .... Californian Veggie was delicious. Little one liked a pasta dish and She liked a thin chicken thingy. What's not to love???

It was about one hour from closing and the restaurant seemed very tired and dirty. The young staff did not help our experience. From forgotten waters to having to flag them down with each thing missing (cutlery, no dressing brought with the salad) to finally the bill. We vowed not to go back to a CPK. The food (salads and...
