Good pizza, we usually order the deluxe. The crust is homemade with good flavor and texture. You will pay a little more than average for your pizza.

When I want a pizza or a nice salad, I go to Chef Charles. They also sell pizza slices, which is convenient. The interior us nothing special at all, it's the pizza that keeps me returning.

By far the best pizza in the country. Chef Charles makes everything from scratch. We loved his signature pizza so much, we took a par cooked one home for the next night. I usually don't eat the crust but theirs is amazing.
