Small quaint hole in the wall with excellent wood-fired oven pizza, all in 16 inch pizza pies. Good chicken wings also.

Just had another great experience at the Pizza Joint. The pizzas were very tasty and the service is always friendly. We had the marinated chicken wings and they were awesome. It is a little out of the way but worth the drive.

We happened across The Pizza Joint while searching for a break from our usual routine. We found the best pizza in the South. In fact, a top five pizza place ever. There are only 4-5 tables but grab some slices and stand outside if need be. It's that good.

Owner Peter is enthusiastic and creative. The food is to die for. It's a BYOB but luckily the beverage store is next door! We go there whenever we are in that area and we ask friends to deliver to us when they come visit.
