Pizza was bland, really lacking on pizza sauce. Asked for a thin crust pizza with extra cheese, I got a standard thicker crust with regular cheese and severely lacking adequate pizza sauce, especially for the price I paid.

We ate here for dinner and the pizza was pretty tasty! We got individual pizzas which we could have split. They came out in a grill rack. The thin crust is a crisp crust. Yummy!

A party of 4 of us all ordered off the all day happy hour prices on Sunday. I ordered a personal size pizza and firehouse chicken wings. Everything was good and would go there again.

The place was clean and the employees were friendly. Kind of expensive for the quality and amount of food we ordered. Ordered cheese balls off the appetizer menu. Got a handful of fried cheese balls for $10.00.
