Pizza was ok but not great. There's a pizza buffet that comes with the salad bar. Better than some of the local options but don't expect anything great. It felt like the buffet at Pizza Hut.

....restaurants around. Good pizza. $8.95 all you can eat buffet which includes salad and pasta dish. Good deal but most of the dishes taste the same as the same sauce was used for each dish and pizza. One of the best places around.

We stayed in the area for two days to visit Mammoth Cave. Unfortunately the food selection in the area is subpar. Almost all of it is fast food with few family or local restaurants. No fine dining whatsoever. But we found Turtleini's and it had...More

Never in a million years would I have thought the BEST pizza I've ever eaten would be freshly handmade and served daily in Kentucky. I had the Capone Pizza--it was perfect! My husband had the lasagna--he's still talking about how fresh and meaty it was.
