This was our first time trying this restaurant and it was great! The service was great and the food was great too! We ordered a thin crust pizza and the whole family enjoyed it! They even gave us a small complimentary pizza to take with us. I will definitely be coming back here the next time we are in town!

I usually carry out my order. There is space to eat in the restaurant but I do not find it inviting.

Had one of the worst lunches....ordered the parmesan chicken sandwich.

Wednesdays kids eat free. But any day my kids feel welcome and love to color and have their artwork posted on the walls.The food is great and a great value. I think the pizza is the best anywhere. The owner is always checking on how we are doing and makes us feel like he really cares.
