Short and simple, food was 8/10. Service 1/10. Worst service I’ve ever had. 2 stars for the food. The restaurant was empty and food took forever

We stayed in Mesa, its such a shame that the area has practically closed down. We came upon this place by accident. Massive restaurant with really friendly staff. Food choices were so cheap and plenty. Lovely restaurant, just hidden away

We make this stop every year mostly because it's pretty good Chicago style pizza for Arizona. Food is good and staff is friendly outside seating is nice as well.
