I can't say anything bad about my experience. Quick, friendly service. Had a cheese, pepperoni and black olive pizza. Tasted great. Crust was perfectly brown. I generally like thin crust but this wasn't advertised as such so no fault given. I highly recommend.

Staying at a nearby hotel, the dining options are limited without a car. This place is located in a strip mall. The pizza here was decent and the service was fairly quick.

Sometimes there is nothing better than a piece of pizza to end your day. We went to Rafael's and was extremely satisfied with the food and the price.

The pizza here appears to be Mexican style. If you're looking for classic Italian or Italian-American pizza, this may not be for you. We found it not very good.More

Good pizza, They don't skimp on the ingredients. A little pricey. $22 for a large with 5 ingredients. Strip mall with 6 or so tables. They do have some other Italian dishes but menu is limited. Will return. Website still says Rubinos.
