Went in at lunch time with no reservation. No problem getting a table. Really friendly and helpful staff. The whole place was very clean. Pizza was excellent and very reasonable prices on the whole menu. Would definitely return.

Dear Yvonne, I'm not surprised that you didn't enjoy your pulled pork sandwich, considering we don't serve one here. What you had was a smoked BEEF BRISKET sandwich, which by it's nature is a fatty cut of meat. As for the chicken goujons(once again chicken...More
