We have been coming here for over 25 years. What you need to know is that this is not gourmet pizza but a style of individual pizzas that are tasty and inexpensive. Plain is $6.50, toppings like 50 cents each. Beers are 3 bucks or...More

Place has a phenomenal reputation, but the pies are, well, less than extraordinary ... in my opinion. Nice place to sit and the prices are OK. And any place with a kielbasa pizza can't be bad. Different? Yes. But, the pizza just isn't that special...More
