If you like a great salad with pizza or pasta this is a great option. The place is a little noisy but for a chain restaurant the quality remains the same. They have expanded their menu to include some good seafood selections as well as some pasta options like spinach fettuccine or mac and cheese. Wine selection is okay. The... More

We sat at the bar and the bartender recommended a blood orange drink that was very good. I ordered a pizza that used to be on the menu, sausage, red peppers, and onions which was exactly how I remembered it. It was very good. I also got a salad. While we were there the manager came over to ask us... More

I've been to this restaurant many times, but it had been a couple months since we'd gone there and I was pleasantly surprised by my most recent visit last week. CPK's all have a similar format, but as you know there an always be variations with a chain restaurant. This location has been consistently good. None of my visits ever... More

Service was very good but food was very ordinary. We had the pizza and salad. Pizza had almost no cheese and vegetables had stems. Taste was very blah. Would not return.

If you want great pizza this is the place to go in Desert Ridge. Usually very good service. The day we were there the service was not as great as it has been in the past, but still good pizza

Have been in numerous CPKs and as always, the menu selections are great, the food is always excellent, the staff are efficient and friendly, clean inviting atmosphere, and usually the Shift Manager checks on your table to make sure everything is all right. On this particular visit, it appeared that they were shorthanded Servers. The time it took for the... More

Very light pizza with choices of unique toppings. Only real complaint was the restaurant is in a shopping center and not close to the parking areas.
