Great pizza and used to have great service and vibe. Now we waited 15 minutes for a slice of cheese. Hey guys, the whole idea was that you could walk in and get a slice! The crew behind the counter just didn't seem to care....More

Good solid pizza without the crowds and wait from otto's across the street. Management change recently; everyone is very friendly and helpful. Good place to stop into for a slice.

Friendly service, creative choice of pizzas. Delicious thin crust! They were very generous with the toppings. And they don't try to shame you into buying overpriced bottled water. They have pitchers of water for their customers. These folks are doing things right!
