When we get to visit we love eating here always. Never disappointed! We tried a new one today, the Farm Girl. Excellent if you're in the mood for meat! A+++. Excellent service. Great atmosphere. Can't go wrong here

Wow... sorry it didn't work out! That's not our usual program, or what we usually try to do. We hope you'll give us another try. Thanks!!

When visiting here be sure to try this pizza. Always busy but worth the wait. Fun crowd and friendly waitstaff. They have vegan options and gluten free as well.

A fun place where you order at the counter, either by the slice or a whole pizza. Very fast, good salads as well. Plan to see a line if at peak dining times, but it moves very quick!

I've been here a couple of times and I am not impressed by the pizza. If you like a thin pizza with a lot (A LOT) of cheese than you have come to the right place. Me, not a big fan.

I am from out of town and I have to say the pizza was amazing. Delivery was right on time and a very courteous driver. I'll be back!

A really long wait for an anticipated rated number 2 restaurant resulting in a huge disappointment..... This place is all about the hype to have a greasy cardboard pizza. Horrible say pass to this one and get a frozen pizza at the store instead. Sorry...More

Yes they do have a gluten free option. They only have a 12" crust available and it's not a crust they produce within their kitchen.
